This is a brilliant hostel, especially if your looking for something different. The cafe/bar/lounge is great and is popular with hip Japanese locals aswell as hostel guests so its good to meet a few people there! The interior of these place is next level for a hostel and was made by a group of distinguished carpenters who also did Nui in Tokyo. The staff are really helpful and although a 10 minute walk from the subway stop, the area is within walking distance of Gion which is great!
I had a great time at this hostel, Mr Yano does an awesome tour and the rest of the staff are great! The parties held on Friday and Sunday are very fun but tend to be very messy, either way they were a great way to meet fellow travellers! I also stayed at Hana hostel which is the same company but J-Hoppers was much more social although the location is not as good!
The location of this hostel is great, right in the middle of the hip Shinshibashi area with Dontonburi within walking distance. Th atmosphere wasn't as good as other hostels in Japan as the common room was rarely used, however the rooms were great with your own private area makes it more like a hotel than a hostel!
I have stayed at many hostels in Seoul and this is the best one and the only one that feels like a proper hostel! If your looking for the nicest hostel in Seoul, this isn't it (although it is incredibly clean). Instead Jake and Min have accomplished exactly what they set out to do - create a place where people can hang out, relax and swap stories. The location is also a big draw. The only negative was the place doesn't feel that secure which may worry people who are unaware how safe Seoul is!
Not as fun as some of the other Khaosan hostels but this one is better located and has a more interesting/tradiational design. Staff were great and the place was so clean and tidy (as always in Japan).
This is a great hostel (like all hostels in Japan). The staff were very helpful and the bar was a lot of fun! The location is not that great compared to the other Khaosan branches but this has a hot food vending machine, bigger kitchen and it's own bar!
This hostel is great and a pretty cheap. The location isn't that great as it's not really in a 'trendy' area, although it is close to some things that are worth checking out. I loved the capsule type bed set up and the rooftop area which was good to meet other people and have a few Bintang's!
The atmosphere at this hostel is great -it has its own bar and nightclub sort of area. Some of the staff weren't that helpful but the rooms were good and clean.
The hostel was too hot and the location wasn't that great. There was only 2 showers on our floor for about 25 people. I can sleep like a log anywhere but my friend said the beds were the most worst he has ever slept on. Other than that the hostel was OK
This hostel is great, the bar is really cheap and great to meet other people. Could do with a better lounge area though.

This place was perfectly located for a gig I was attending in Camden, The facilities were average but the price was great.
This place was awesome, great atmosphere and staff. They take guests out on parties every night, also with guests from the other hostels of the same chain. My favorite aspect was the group dinners/Sangria's that were really cheap. Will definitely be back!
Only stayed here one night but had a great time. This is probably the best located hostel in the whole of Spain let alone Barcelona, it also offers really cheap drinks at its own bar and there parties here every night. Only downside was that despite arriving around 10pm, I still couldn't check in until over an hour later but they gave me some free drink vouchers to tide me over until then!
This place is in real good location, its also clean and pretty cheap.
Located near exit 3 of hongik university station means this place is ideally located if you want to soak up the unique atmosphere of hongdae while staying in a more quiet area. The staff here are great, they are real friendly and keep the place clean, the only downside is that sometimes a staff member isn't always around and the English level of some of the staff is quite low. Many people come and go through this place so its ideal for meeting other people. Will definitely be back!
This Guesthouse is probably the best located in Seoul, right bang in the middle of the best part of Hongdae which is one of the best places in Seoul for young people. Justin is really nice and will go out of his way to help and the place is kept really tidy. The place is a little small but sometimes people prefer that, I will definitely be back.
