    Great room for the price. The busy, downtown location was a little off-setting, but right next to bus and metro station.

    Great place friendly staff. They didn't know much about transportation to the airport for very late or extremely early flights. Only minor complaint. Other was a good solid no frills hostel.

    Staff were okay, but could be more hospitable. And the beds were not stable and shanking all the time

    A very basic hostel in Seoul that was pretty much just a place to sleep for me. Seoul doesn’t seem to have many hostels anyway. The location was fine as it was right next to the metro station, but if you’re looking for a cool and social part of town, go to Itaewon.

    Not as clean as other hostels, beds were gross, receptionist with nose piercings not terrible but not friendly. My boyfriend and I left our bags in our lockers and actually walked down to Siloam jjimjilbang to spend the night there instead. Hostel attracts a lot of young and rowdy kids that don’t know how to stay quiet,
