    Satisfied having own personal room, bathroom, bed, TV, strong wifi. Quiet peaceful. It is not a social place to meet other travelers. But for me, that is not important. I just need a quiet clean place to rest. There are many local restaurants nearby. So you may have to navigate through the crowd and the food smell at night to reach the Hotel. You should be fine as long as you don't expect the neighborhood to be as pristine as around a Hilton. Walking distance to touristy places.

    Good location and lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. Station and lots of sights within walking distance. Walls are a bit thin though.

    Excellent location, three stops from the city, and clear directions from airport. Staff only speak Korean though they have lots of signage in English and I found them lovely. Not a hostel as such, no communal area, but an inexpensive, clean, small and lovely place

    Apple Backpackers is in a great location, situated in the heart of bustling restaurant and cafe district Ikseon-dong. Very close to 7-11 as well for getting water and other things. Very clean, staff are friendly but very limited in their English speaking. We went in Aug-sept which is perhaps the down season. If you are looking for atmosphere or a place to socialise this might not be for you. Great place for travellers who want some down time or couples looking for a quiet retreat.

    The space was clean when I arrived, had towels and bedding. The location is great, walking distance to many attractions and also to the subway station. I emailed them two hours before my arrival and I got directions airport-hostel right away. However, garbage was never picked up during the 4 days I stayed. The front desk had a very nice lady, she tried, but she spoke almost no English. It was very difficult to get directions, recommendations and house rules. I always had to google translate.

    We stayed here for one night in July. We had a private double room. It was clean enough, although not spotless. The bathroom was very basic but everything worked fine, and we were grateful for the air conditioning! We put our breakfast in the fridge and it was fine the next morning, we never saw other guests. The staff were very friendly, although they speak little English, and they let us store our suitcase on the day of checkout. Good for a one night stay, would feel cramped after a few days.

    Not much atmosphere as there is no real common area. Everyone stayed in their room so no mingling. The surrounding area isn’t great on first inspection but felt comfortable once we had a chance to look around. Kitchen facilities are ok but kitchen is limited as only one person can cook at a time. But microwave and kettle in separate room which was handy. Shower is poor. The staff were fine, zero English so got no recommendations on local restaurants/sights, even asking for a map was a task.

    The location was amazing for going around Seoul. The surrounding restaurants were lit up at night and it was extremely fun. However, this is only once you are able to find the hostel. It was extremely hard to find and the owners do not speak anything but Korean so it was difficult to communicate.

    최악의 호스텔. 종로 한가운데 있어서 새벽 3시까지 노래방 소리 들립니다. 주인 분이 나이드신 부부이신데 카드결제 하려고 하니 별로 안좋아 하시더라고요. 최악의 경험이었습니다. 모텔 가는게 나았을 것 같네요. 침구는 더럽고, 방 안도 깨끗하지 않아요. 관리를 잘 못하시는 것 같았습니다. 노인 부부께서 카운터를 보시는데, 카드 계산하는 것 별로 안 좋아하시더라구요.. 무엇보다도 저녁에 누군가 방문을 계속 열려고 하며 두드리는데 경찰 불러야하나 생각했습니다. 그다음날 여쭤보니 주인 아저씨께서 방을 착각하고 문을 두드린거였다고요... 죄송하다고는 하셨는데 여자분들은 절대 가지마세요. 요즘 세상이 흉흉해서 늘 조심해야하는데 정말 최악의 경험이었습니다. 여길 선택한 나자신이 원망스러웠네요.. 그리고 술집 노래방 한가운데 있어서 새벽 3시까지 노래소리 들려옵니다... 최악ㅠ
