Super-central and super low price, it has its ups and downs. You get a really small room with some mosquito-stains on the walls and sheeys. However, it is less than 2 minutes away from everything in central Seoul. If you do now wish to stay any at your hostel except to sleep, this place will be perfect. The toilets are a bit small and it is very cold. However, one could get extra blankets. The staff was really friendly and did everything to help out. It is also close to airbus line 6002 .


It was more of like a reused old building that used to be a private study rooms back in the days in Korea. Tiniest room with no window I've ever been, glad I had only one night booked.

While the location is in the middle of downtown Seoul, it is a little hard to find and once you arrive you are required to go up an additional set of stairs and take an elevator to locate the hostel. This was not that big of a deal. The biggest letdown for me was the closet sized room which included a fan with a timer. Coupled with the fact that if you had to go to the bathroom during the middle of the night you had to climb another set of stairs, I was not very happy. However, it is quite cheap

Rooms are minuscule and the bathrooms are grubby, but the price makes up for it. Bargain for Central Seoul.


Great location. Good value for money...cheapest privates around!
