    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!

    Very Good

    I met some nice travelers here. The only negative is a very specific situation. I reserved 3 beds, but my 3rd friend never came. Even though this bed was given away the first night, and then there were multiple beds available, the manager told me I have to pay. My friend asked to stay one extra night to alleviate this cost. I refused to pay and he said NO ROOM and hung up on me. So, unprofessional manager, but fun place to stay.

    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.

    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...

    The rooms and beds are dirty. The sheets smell like they've never been washed. The towel they give you has stains all over it. I don't even want to start with the bathroom. The sink was leaking sonyou had to stand in a puddle of water all the time. There was mold all over the floor and walls... Also there are no locks on the room doors, anyone can just go in and out. I definitely don't recommend this place!

    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.
