I had a wonderful time at Zzzip. The location is perfect and the place is cozy and adorable. I reall enjoyed the company of the family and lex, as they are super open minded and helpful. I can really recommend this place to anybody who wants to explore the city, go out in Hongdae or get lost in the beautiful city of Seoul. I'll definitely be back.

My short trip to Korea was GREAT! Jina and Byran introduced me to the city and I got to see everything that I wanted to. If only I could have had more nights in Hongdae :) Good location, helpful staff and a very clean hostel.

It is a rare thing in the modern world to meet business owners who place honesty, altruism, and an all-encompassing desire to make their guests happy above and beyond any sort of monetary benefit. Bryan, his lovely wife, Jina, and their wonderful two children made me feel like more than simply a guest at their perfectly-located and very clean hostel, but indeed something more - a friend, and even like part of their family. Simply put, I cannot recommend this hostel enough; stay here and be happy

The hostel is in a great location; it is a 5 minute walk from Hongdae, however it is still quiet enough to sleep very well. The two owners, Gina and Bryan are two great individuals that take great care of their hostel. The facilities are clean, the comforters are washed every day and there is always a pot of coffee on in the kitchen. This is a great hostel for anyone looking for a great time in Hongdae. If you're looking to party, hang out or see Seoul, this is a great hostel for you.
