The staff were so incredibly nice and helpful! The front desk had outlet converters you could borrow, maps in Engilsh, and plenty of towels. The common area was clean and social, and the breakfast was a total treat!


Cannot say a bad word about this place location is a great point to start you seoul exploration. In a trendy part of Seoul, Hongdae, nearest metro station is Hongik Univ Metro station, 5 minute walk from hostel. It has food, bars, clubs and shopping on its doorstep. The people who work at U wa, were welcoming and very helpful in preparing a room for us to stay after a very early flight and advised my girlfriend and I the best way to arrive. The place itself is very cool and spacious!

Had a great stay for 3 nights in an 8 bed dorm. Location is very nice. Close to the metro in a quiet neighborhood but close to the busy Hongdae area for eating, drinking, and nightlife. Common area was cozy and encourages meeting people. The 8-bed dorm is next to the common area which can get noisy at times. The room is a bit tight but was clean and the beds were comfortable (privacy curtain and electrical outlet). Breakfast is basic--self-serve toast and eggs. Would definitely stay again!


Staffs are so nice and helpful, I was going to Myeongdong and the staff taught me the short cut, so that I dun have to waste so much time on changing the train line.
