    Amazing hostel, great social scene, right next to the subway. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Very comfortable atmosphere. Only thing that could be improved is cleaner bedrooms - my pillow had stains on it. Will definitely come back again though.

    A nice hostel with basic amenities. As read in reviews the towels aren't available and the place is a bit difficult to locate. Overall value for money. Stayed only for a night so cannot comment on the overall environment etc.

    Location location location. 15 minute walk from Seoul station, there’s another metro right out the front of the hostels. Rooms are decent size, beds are super hard, and are made of iron so they make ALOT of noise but a simple movement. Toilets constantly smell/blocked up. Showers are hot with good pressure. Kitchen area is good, but the “working travellers as staff” are way too cool, rude and give off a “you’re not welcome here, unless you work here” vibe. Good value for money.

    I have never been to a hostel where I felt this disgusted. The guy at the reception asked for money, game me a key and said you're done. didn't give me any info about wifi, bathroom, towels nothing and not once did he looked like he care about being there. The place looks like its in a 3rd world country, it just seems dirty. The rooms are so small and crammed and if people don't turn on the air conditioner it smells. I got bitten by 5 mosquitos there. I dont care how cheap it is. AVOID IT.
