    Min is a really good host and is really helpful. There is a really cozy vibe in the Common areas and everything is really clean. The location is perfect - situated among numerous restaurants and bars and close to the metro. Really great hostel!

    I'm very happy I found a place like this to stay in Seoul. The owner is friendly and help the travelers with information he also treat guests as his friends. The hostel is clean, the WiFi connection is great, the shower has hot water, they provide breakfast (basic breakfast but you'll enjoy it), the place is located close (walking distance) to the historic places, during winter is warm, it is easy to find and of course with the best price (only 10,000 won per night!!!). I highly recommend it.

    I stayed twice at this hostel during my trip in Korea and both times it was great. The living room is cosy and a perfect place to relax with the other guests and sit back after a day of exploring. The staff is friendly and way better then your average reception types. All in all this hostel was the best one I stayed in during my trip.

    I had a great time and the staff were super helpful. I only crashed in my room at night, so I can't say much about the atmosphere, but I would definitely stay here again.

    Over all it is a very good hostel. Breakfast could be improved by adding muesli and milk to the unhealthful option of packaged white bread, artificial butter and jam. It would be very helpful if credit cards were accepted. The canceling of reservations of people arriving after 11:00 PM is disturbing. What happens when someone's plane is late?

    This was your average hostel. Everything was a happy and not ecstatic with. The beds felt solid enough for your average bunk beds. The common space is honestly nice and cozy with good recommendations for site seeing around the city. The staff were very friendly and breakfast was toast and coffee, and free. The lockers were large enough for your wallet, passport, and most valuable belongings. I would try out another hostel to see another area but wouldn't mind staying here again.

    Hostel owner is a nice person with his nice family members as fixed staffs. Some staffs are part time duty workers ,one is very nice in manner,the others are nice,but only one may be near nasty in case to process check in/out officially. This hostel is located in the center of cultural entertainment areas for local arts and dinning restaurants ,surrounded by many socialized nice peoples in every corner of street indeed. And the best SNUH( #1University Hospital) in front of Subway Exit.

    Mediocre experience. Room feels like make shift residential studio, amenity is rather run down or Ikea grade. No shampoo or shower soap provided and water heater seems to be half functional, turns into cold water in the mid way of shower so you for force to take a cold shower in the winter Seoul which was not pleasant at all.
