The hostel is located in the Seomyeom, with easy access to restaurants and shopping area. However it's a bit of walking distance from the train station exits. Noise from the highway at the back can be annonying at times. The room we stayed was rather dusty - a serious consideration for those with medical condition. A nice place to stay if you want to be in the middle Seomyeom and enjoy night life.

Zen is located in a resident building, which make Zen more like a home rather than a hostel. I like this kind feeling. The room is clean, simple and neat, equipped with WIFI. The landscape from the balcony is very good. I pretty enjoy the memont when I laid on the pad and look the night landscape from the balcony.

A comfortable guest house with an amazing view. Staff is relaxed and helpful. The hostel is pretty small, so not that many guests stay at the same time. Sometimes had to wait to get to bathroom, as there are only two and the showers are located in those. All in all, I had a good short stay, it kind of felt like home!

Great place to stay with a knowledgeable host and amazing people! I wish we could have stayed longer. The only improvement I can think of would have been nice to have a shower curtain, so the floors didn't get soaked every time you took a shower.

Hostel is clean and quiet and the set up is interesting (someone's apartment on the 15th floor). It's close to the subway station and otherwise in a convenient location. The owner is very helpful.

June is awesome, he runs this joint and he will help you find anything and everything awesome in the city. He is a treasure trove of knowledge. Follow his advice and get the local chicken ginseng soup down the road and you won't be disappointed.

Great hostel! The owner June is a super cool guy who loves to play virtual golf in the same building. Go join him for a game or two!
