    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.

    Decent place to stay. A bit grotty in some areas, but the main rooms are okay. Cheap, close to subway, shops, restaurants, and has an ATM.

    This hostel has a great location, a few steps from a train station. The facilities were secure, clean and the staff was friendly. My only complaint is the noise level of the lock on the door. Every time someone came in or out of the room the door beeped very loudly and in their largest mixed dorm people were coming and going at all hours and the noise of the lock on the door as well as the lockers were hard to sleep through. Otherwise this hostel is worth the money.

    Good place for the money but toilets weren't clean. Really close the city center. I would definitely recommend if you are on a budget.

    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.

    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.

    No privacy at all. No curtains in the bunk beds. People were loud and inconsiderate and the staff didn't care. just offer to move rooms instead. Reception was only volunteers who stayed at the hostel so they knew nothing about the city and wasn't helpful at all. When I checked in the person said 2 things to me and just pointed to posters on the walls about rules and things in the city. Completely ignored me.
