    Good location. The rooms are clean. Good value for money. Facilities are good, they even have their own smoking room. The staff are super nice and friendly. Marlo was so helpful. I was a bit not feeling well and she helped me to find a drugstore and thought me how to say the medicine in korean. She got me a room that has a better ventilation. She even gave me a coffee the following day, when I ran out of it. Will surely stay again!

    The staffs were helpful. I came a bit early to dropped my backpack. They even let me use the shower room. The location was good, only 15 minutes walking to the next subways and 3 minutes to the bus station. Unfortunately my 4 Bed dorm was not very nice, it was smelling really bad and the bed sheet, blanket and towel were dirty and smelly as well. The bathrooms were not very clean and there’s no toilet paper.

    Had to wait for the women in the counter to finish her conversion with her friend before we could check in. Sadly we felt lucky to only have booked one night. Hope they can improve in the future since the location and the building is nice.

    1. Instruction to Hostel unclear, spend more than an hour to locate. 2. It have been stated that the check out hour starts at 9:00. I intentionally waited until 915 (in fact personally prefer to go out earlier) to get down to the office to check out, but no staff was available. Only a man sleep beaides the counter, and he said that the check ou hour starts from11:00! 3. The room was very dirty, insectide was placed on the table top. 4. There was no pillow on the bed. And I was charged 45000 won

    The location of the hostel is fine, close to metro stations and good food spots however that is about the only thing going for this hostel. It is disgusting, stains on the beds, the bathrooms are horrible our bathroom shower was actually broken. I felt unclean being in the hostel, the beds are old and not nice. The staff weren't the best, I said the wifi in our room wasn't working and instead of them fixing it they gave me instructions on how to fix it and left it to me to sort out...

    It felt like a homeless shelter. Absolutely filthy (I am very used to roughing it but this was appalling). I didn’t want to touch anything and there were bedbugs. Check in staff was rude but the person I was emailing was nice so maybe I was just unlucky with the person I met. I moved to ys house hostel which is on the same street and same price but 100x nicer.

    Extremely dirty hostel. The bathroom was unusable. The room had no windows, but don’t let that distract you from the bathrooms. The public one downstairs was fine, but in the six person shares room, was the most disgusting thing I’ve seen in a while.
