    Location was very convenient. There were 5 groceries restaurants around every corners. Starbucks, subway station and the airport bus station were super close. Staffs were cool to talk to and the room was okay for what I paid for. I would like to come back if I ever come back to Seoul for a few nights again.

    The hostel was overall pretty good. There was nothing that was really very bad. Make sure to bring your own towels as they offer free complimentary towels but do not have very many of them, so if they run out (and they do) you’ll have to improvise after you shower.

    Decent hostel. Showers on the 1st floor has a poor set-up so use the ones on the 3rd floor. Receptionst are friendly but new in Seoul so they know some stuff but quite limited. Overall worth it for the price.

    This Hostel was okay if you only want somewhere to sleep, however, the rooms were very smelly due to only having a small window for ventilation. The beds were hard and squeaky but okay I didn't have any back pain or anything. One of the main problems with this Hostel was the kind of people it attracts on our second day of staying there was a fight in the night and someone stole my food from the fridge. Also towels were rarely provided which was annoying(and smelt), staff did little to resolve.

    Everything was just okay - passable. Front staff were a little cold and not helpful for finding somewhere in the city. There’s nothing terrible so oh get what you pay for

    If you're looking for a quick and cheap place to crash this is it. I was satisfied with my stay and will be back.

    Beds were creaky and old, bedding was gross and uncomfortable. Staff came in and woke us up several times for no apparent reason - weren’t very professional about it. Toilets dirty or out of order. Towels provided but they’re hand towels, not actual towels. Seems like it could be a good hostel, but just needs a bit more love. Decent location for seeing the city.

    The location is really good. The rooms are okay, could be cleaner, especially the floor. Bathrooms are good. Staff is not really nice or helpful, annoying, treating people by skin color and country of origin. It was okay for sleeping, wouldn't go there again.

    The fundamentals of running an hostel are not there. The staff doesn't give a f**k about you, they are not there to help, if anything I had the impression of disturbing. Dont bother asking things or advices at the reception. There is clearly something wrong with this entity, probably the bunch of westerners pretending to work as volunteer. Simply pathetic, the location is the only good point of this hostel and trust me you can find a better location...

    Male staff were creepy, bursting into my female dorm all day without knocking. Was walked in on while changing 10+ times. One asked if I enjoyed weighing myself and that I looked tired (I was in bed w/o makeup), another took my number and repeatedly texted me though I was clearly uncomfortable. Rude staff, mostly teenagers who give everyone dirty looks and hog kitchen. Kitchen has cheap portable cookers instead of stove. Kitchen and bathrooms are DIRTY, leaking sinks and broken shower heads.
