Staff is very polite and friendly, but not very helpful. The first night I didn't have a blanket. Subsequent requests for a blanket resulted in the response "we will bring one to your room", but it never came. I caught a cold and had to sleep with my clothes on. Every morning I woke up to a smell that was akin to rotting dead animals (I suspect dead vermin in the air-conditioning system?). Complaints about this were met with the same friendly response, but it was not fixed, to my discontent.
Lengthy dorm beds, which is nice for tall people. Male support desk staff does not have a good vibe, they look like they don't want to work there and made a slightly rude impression because of that. Showers are clean. The free breakfast is a nice extra, but the quality isn't that good. Me and my friend got stomach problems after drinking the orange juice that tasted a little funny, and saw an employee eat from the buffet with bare (unclean?!) hands. The surroundings of the hostel are quite nice!

Came back for another stay here after I visited another part of Korea, it felt like coming home! =) The owner Mia is so friendly!
It felt like the staff is my best friend here! Also I really like the shower here, I've stayed in multiple guest houses in Hongdae area, this is the only one so far which provides unlimited hot water! Very clean place, good location (short walk to party area and subway, but just far enough to not be bothered my partying public at night). I can highly recommend it!
Mixed feeling about this place. On one side the place is REALLY nice. Everything is clean, location is excellent, the common room is very nice. Downside was extremely rude night staff (which is playing computer games while talking to you) and very steep prices for lost towels (they charge you $7 while a dorm bed costs $6). To those who it may help: never hang your towel to dry if you don't want it to get "lost". Would like to stay again and would arrange everything with day staff which is good.
This place advertises 12-bed dorms, but in fact it is a 36-bed room with curtains separating every 12 beds. You sleep with 35 other guests in the same room, which makes it hard to get some rest. The beds and lockers are noisy. The toilet is in the shower, the floor in there is wet and dirty and no shoes allowed inside, so you're guaranteed to have wet dirty trousers. Sheets are too small so you end up lying on the sweaty bed. Internet there is bad, it's not even Skype capable. Staff is friendly.
This was the third time I stayed at Khaosan Tokyo Kabuki and I had a fantastic stay once more! The staff organised an Okonomiyaki food party, the food tasted so great! The central living room is a great place for making new friends to hang out with in Tokyo!
This place feels like home! The staff and other travelers feel like a family when I stay here (actually I came back to this hostel after my first stay). The staff is also very helpful and thoughtful, I think they should be rewarded a medal for being so wonderful!
