    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!

    I felt really at home staying here. I stayed in Korea for 6 months and visited all different areas but this neighborhood was probably the best of everything I'd seen. There are regular markets where items are scanned and you don't have to haggle over things like soap. The immediate area is quite nice as well. Guests here were really relaxed and comfortable.

    Very Good

    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.

    Really good location in a busy university area, lots of things to do, places to drink and eat and shop. Always things happening at the weekends. Hostel itself feels more like an apartment that someone has squeezed loads of bunk beds into a normal sized room. No real storage space for luggage or general day to day items (no shelf or bed lamp). Bathrooms were very basic and not very clean, I stayed 3 nights and didn't notice them being cleaned once.

    The hostel is very well located and the member of staff I dealt with was helpful. However the mattress on my bed was waffer thin and the metal frame of the bunkbed was sticking into me all night. Therefore I cannot recommend this hostel as i had two very uncomfortable nights there.

    You get what you pay for and it’s very cheap! Wasn’t clear who worked there, difficult to find staff to help. All of my labelled food was thrown out after a day. Staff argued about sleeping together and didn’t have much concern over the guests, one guy never wore a shirt. Very dirty, under beds and toilets disgusting. Most guests lived there so were unsocial and just binged Netflix, weird vibes. Also the front door is always open and rooms weren’t secure. All lockers were already full.

    I wish someone else had written a proper review so I didn’t waste my time or money booking this dump It is literally the a**hole of the world. Only would recommend staying here if your other option was sleeping under a bridge. It is DISGUSTING. Smells worse than you can imagine and there was hair on my mattress, A/C in the room wasn’t working. I am a budget traveller with very low standards however this was so unhygienic I had to get a refund and book somewhere else. DO NOT STAY HERE
