Was empty during my stay due to MERS scare, but great otherwise. Points off on security as no secure place (that I was made aware of) to put valuables.

Thank you for your review. There are lockers in every room. But we recommend guests bring their own padlocks for better security. Our security rating has been over 97% all the time.

Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed at! The facilities are great and the rooms and shower/bathroom very clean. The rooms are private, but there is still an extra bathroom in the corridor for your convenience. The location was great as it's in a very lively university area with great cafes and restaurants. On the other hand, it takes a while to get to the city center, but I preferred the university area especially in the evenings. The staff speaks excellent English.

That's an excellent hostel. If it's your first time in Korea/Seoul, you could really need some good advice how to get around there and what is worth a visit. The staff is extremely helpful. It was a nice stay. Thank you!

Security: Lockers and a lock provided for free. It's hard to imagine any hostel doing much better. Location: You're not very far from common attractions in Seoul. Staff: The owner was very friendly and helpful. He has visited hostels around the world and put a lot of thought into everything. Cleanliness: The six beds in my room looked new. Everything was clean. Facilities: Everything I saw was well maintained. Value: I paid under $20 a night! Atmosphere: The MERS scare made things pretty quiet.

This is a great hostel,located in a fun part of Seoul. It’s close to the subway and pretty easy to find. While its location is relatively central it’s in a quite location just off the main street so you won’t have any problems with crowds from nightclubs and bars on the street waking you up. The room and bathroom was spotlessly clean. I met the owner, Mr Young, the first day I arrived and he was very helpful with regards to giving advice on what to see in Seoul. Highly recommended place to stay!

Hotel staff friendly and helpful, the facilities had everything I needed. There's also so much to do near hongdae and the hostel was a perfect resting place a bit further from the crowded streets and busy nightlife just across the metro station.

I loved this guest house. I booked 3 nights then stayed for a week. The staff is really friendly and helpful, they know good places to get food nearby, and they helped me figure or how to get to everything I wanted to see in Seoul. The bed was comfortable, the shower was clean and spacious, and there are lockers in the room big enough for a day bag. The location is close to the train and nightlife, but still quiet. I will be back next time I am in Seoul.

Really sets the bar high in terms of hostels. Full bedding, clean facilities, and even a cheap laundry option. Close to the subway and good restaurants, a bit difficult to find initially though. very nice staff. Would stay there again for sure.

Stayed here for a total of 8 nights and it was well worth it. There are many facilities and services here, from a wash and dry laundry service and additional bathrooms for all to use outside your own dorm. Young is a fantastic host and understands traveller's needs. He will give you heaps of useful information about Korea and help you organise your day - just ask! The hostel has a pleasant atmosphere and Young ensures it's peaceful at night so you can get a good night's rest.

Everything was excellent, the only little downsides were the beds which were a bit uncomfortable (2-beds private room). Highly recommended hostel.

We loved staying in Seoulwise hostel. The place is very clean, and feels like home. Owners are helpful and nice. They pay lots of attention for details: you got all you need in room including toiletries, sleepers, hair drier, mirrors - all the useful stuff; even the make up/dress up room for girls)) Location is very nice: peaceful and quite university area, but very close to subway, and all the convenient stores are around. Highly recommended. Marina, Russia

I thought this hostel was great. I will for sure stay here again when I am in Seoul. The staff was friendly and helpful with everything. They even sent me my phone charger I left in the room and gave me my own room to stay in the first evening because I arrived so late (for no upcharge). It's very close to the metro and nightlife around the univerisity and surrounded by several lovely shops, from coffee to clothes.
