My Home Seoul, Seoul, South Korea

This hostel is adequate for people that want to save some money and stay in their own room. The rooms themselves are just large enough for one person. Keys are provided for each room so you know your things are secure. The location is right next to the many restaurants around Sadang station. The owner James is a cheerful person that will make sure you are aware of everything. The rooms themselves are clean. However the communal shower and bathroom facilities are old and in need of renovation.

This guest house is clean, well staffed and has excellent facilities. They even have a miso soup machine! The dormitories are a bit noisy at night since everyone is separated by a thin wall, but this was expected. The cleanliness, condition of the facilities, security, and staff exceeded my expectations.

It was a pleasure to stay at this guesthouse. The owner, James, is very helpful with trip planning. The room was cleaned and cared for daily and the facilities were excellent. One very minor quibble was the constant amount of little flies and flying insects coming into the first floor dormitory on hot days. However this can be solved by closing the windows and keeping the air conditioning on. Overall, this is one of the best hostels I have been to.

Pencil 5 Seoul Hostel, Seoul, South Korea

Facilities are on par with what is expected at this price point, but what makes this hostel great is DJ, Ella, and the rest of the staff. They will go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I enjoyed spending time in the common room, sharing food with staff and other travelers, playing foosball, and having a good laugh. The Wednesday hike to the top of Mt. Bukhansan with DJ and Bibambap lunch afterwards were both magnificent. If I get the chance I would definitely stay at Pencil 5 again.

It is always our big pleasure to share Korean food with anybody in this hostel. Bibimbab every Wednesdays expecially =). You made us happy, greatly thanks for your happy character. We will definitely greet you again for the next chance. Take care ~

Kimchee Sinchon Guesthouse, Seoul, South Korea

This is a crowded hostel with many people moving in and out at all hours of the day. If you are looking for a busy/lively/crowded atmosphere, then this hostel is for you. Lockers are provided, though you must bring your own lock. Room keys are given, but the other travelers never locked the room. Location (adjacent to Sinchon and Hongdae) is perfect for nightlife. Cleanliness is a bit lacking, but all basic amenities are present. At their price point everything is as expected.
