We have stayed at this location numerously over the past two years living in Korea. Each trip to Seoul requires a stay here because it is convenient and affordable.

It is just right in the Itaewon area and close to everything, and easy to make new friends here!


Great place to stay!


Stayed at the newer location two separate times. Highly recommend it! The only downside were the bathrooms were located outside of the room area. But that is the only small issue.


We had a great stay here. The location is fantastic - right in the heart of Itaewon! Very friendly hostel and great value for money.


This hostel is run by some interesting characters -- and when I say interesting, I mean that in a very good way. They're reasonably friendly, engaging, and as I found because I had to lodge complaints -- not very tolerant of misbehaviour from other guests. I'm quite bad about leaving reviews, but I wanted to highlight SP@Itaewon specifically because when I left my phone's spare battery and charger (my phone is broken and can't recharge), they shipped it back to me farther south in Korea. Thanks!
