    Made friends with some locals staying at the hostel, the outdoor garden/patio is a dream and is relatively unheard for anywhere in Korea.

    Come as strangers, leave as friends- the moto is perfect for Birdnest Hostel. A huge thank you to the manager, Moody. Even while staying next door he assisted my mom and my brother. I wish I would have stayed at this hostel the whole time I was staying in Seoul, and look forward to returning!

    The owner is amazing here. Helped us with onwards journey and went above and beyond to find things out for us! The hostel is in a really good location - 5/10 minute walk from Hongik University metro stop on line 2. There are also loads of restaurants and shops etc nearby. The hostel is good value for money and had good amenities such as cold water dispenser, fridge, A/C, etc. would recommend staying here!

    For the price it's okay. The owner is very welcoming and trys to make sure you feel comfortable. The staff was kinda irritating because if you tryed to ask anything you usually got ignored or given an awnser that wasn't related to your question. Overall for the price it's okay. On the postive side you'll make some nice contacts with other travelers there.

    The owner of the hostel was very kind and helpful. The hostel did have some dirt and grime, but was very homey. It was very hot when I was there, and the hostel didn’t have a great system to circulate air so at times it felt like a sauna.

    Very good value all in all. I would recommend that they allow a lock in the shower room so that people can wash in privacy. It's a very small hostel so I can't complain too much about the facilities. The location is excellent and it's a quiet place and relaxing with some nice bars and cafes close by.

    Facilities were the best yet the staff were the worst. It's a typical party hostel managed by young Westerners, not by Koreans. If you're expecting a quiet friendly hostel commonly seen in Asia, look for it somewhere else. The common area is EXTREMELY loud with men & women consuming alcohols while chatting, though they do quiet down after 22:30. The staff (man and woman) were rude to customers and had an entitled attitude you don't see in Asia, though they are friendly toward their own people.

    Not a bad place to stay, but there were a couple issues during my brief overnight stay. Check in was a bit of a process, I got a long winded speech about rules and everything. Not bad. However, the lady forgot who I was by the next morning and tried to get me to pay again. Also, the door code panel simply didn’t work, so I nearly got locked out in the middle of the night, but thankfully there was someone in the common room who heard me knocking. Okay for a quick trip, but won’t return.

    The facilities as bathrooms and showers weren't enough for the amount of beds in the hostel. The cleanness was not what we expected at all. And the staff was kind but sometimes creepy that make us fell uncomfortable.

    Cheap for sure but dirty, staff didn't speak English well and was not understanding, all she cared about was having the money and having you checked in and checked out in time. Wasn't helpfull for my first days in Seoul ! When I moved to another hostel with super friendly and helpful owners, where I met some other guests, I felt a lot better !
