Extremely homey and hospitable hostel complete with little idiosyncrasies. Jun as advertised, was great. Super location; in a quiet residential neighbourhood but close to the happening Hongdae district. Finally, it was a superb value for your money.

A great hostel, big enough to not feel cramped and small enough to make plenty of friends! Neither excruciatingly far nor difficult to reach from Hongik station (Hongdae's a stone's throw) nestled on a quiet street, Jun greeted me with a smile and helped me out when I needed it. The hostel has loads of resources to help you get inspired for things to do and although the two showers for the whole hostel may not be appealing to some, it really wasn't a big deal. Would definitely go back!

I really loved the location! It's perfect. The living space is cozy, the space is secure, and the facilities are nothing to coMplain about.

Jun is a sweetheart and has made my stay very enjoyable. He is very kind and has helped me a lot.. The beds are very soft and comfortable, which is seldom the case in many hostels. The atmosphere is very intimate. Internet is good. There's TV available and games, and books, and DVDs. It's in a fairly good neighborhood and about 10 minutes from Hongdae Station. I can't recommend this place enough. Easily the best hostel I've stayed in in Korea, considering the cost and quality.

My stay at the hostel coincided with the New Year, and I must say, the area is super quite and safe, a 5min walk will lead you to great bars and shops to keep you busy till late! the rooms seemed very clean, and everyone respected sleeping time, so managed to always get a good rest after hours of walking around Seoul. The staff was welcoming and even renewed my towels! the only small thing I would recommend, tho breakfast is really really nice, maybe not be so strict with the time :)

Liked: Nice hostel, a very friendly owner. Very clean, the bathroom cleaned every day. Breakfast included. Free tea or coffee all the time. Disliked: a little hard to find and a little too far from the metro station- at least 15 min on foot.
