    This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at! The staff was so kind and informative. They had many resources to help you plan your day if you hadn’t already (or discover something new). The location is only a five minute walk to the subway and there are shops and conscience stores all around. The atmosphere is friendly & relaxing. It is easy to connect with the staff and other guests even if you are not the most sociable. I had a wonderful time and would stay again in a heartbeat!

    Had such a wonderful stay at this hostel. The owner and staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and I really loved the security of the private room. The location is amazing with so many great places to eat right in the area and easy access to public transportation. You are a 5 minute walk away from the bus stop and metro station which will get you to anywhere else you need to go to in Seoul. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit!

    The common room has a wonderful atmosphere for meeting other guests, and the staff are very friendly.. Walking tours are arranged by the staff every few days which are very good for sightseeing and socializing. The private room was very spacious and clean. One of the best hostel experiences I’ve had.

    Probably one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in. Owner is very nice, the employees as well. Very near to a metro station and some good restaurants. I will come back.

    Min has done a fantastic job fostering a communal environment at this little hostel. The facilities are on the bare-boned side, but they have everything you actually need and offer a killer price for a bed for the night which makes this hostel a fantastic choice. One small note, if you are a light sleeper you may want to double check that you don't have the room next to the reception area. Wasn't an issue for me, but it might be for others.

    The area is really good and it's more-or-less subway adjacent. 10 min walk to the front gate of a palace and 15 from the arts-district (Insa-dong). The staff was courteous and quite helpful. The bedrooms were clean and the washroom was fine (if a little small). It's a very nice place to stay.

    The staff is SUPER friendly, the nice woman at the front desk helped me arrange an entire trip to the national park and put up with me asking 5000 million questions! All of the staff speak really great English. The atmosphere is good, but the rooms are a little bit cramped. Towels, soap, shampoo, etc. provided which is a nice bonus. No AC in the rooms (unless you pay extra) during the day which can get a bit hot during the summer

    This hostel seemed to have a very convivial atmosphere in the main building. However, bear in mind that the private rooms are stashed away in a random apartment building about a five minute walk away - not the most pleasant stroll for breakfast on a rainy morning, for example, and there is no atmosphere or common area in that building. Also, there is no storage room for luggage when you check out - you just leave it in the front lobby in the open.Other than this, totally fine for a night or two!
