    Staff are really helpful and location can’t be beat—then again is there even such thing as a bad neighborhood when it comes to Seoul? Beds are rudimentary but not uncomfortable, bathrooms are fine, basement is a nice spot to hang out, it’s just not really that clean.

    Kimchee Hostel was an amazing experience. Many of the reviews consider it a party hostel and although many guests go out, no one was too rowdy or inconsiderate- just fun and social! The staff was also very nice. Would stay here again

    Okay Listen, Check in was a breeze and the staff were helpful and the showers were decent. The only problem was I was being eaten alive by mosquitoes and so were my roommates. I had to buy bug repellent.But besides all that, I made a life long friend and we had so much fun exploring what was nearby and we ended up spending our vacation together for those 2 weeks I stayed. As a lone traveler having someone to accompany you made everything better. Instead of being alone , I had someone with me!

    V good location & cheapest hostel we found but cheap for a reason... ‘‘Secure bag storage’ = leave your stuff in the corridor of an unlocked building and unstaffed front desk. Showers clean but common room rancid especially in the mornings after guests had been up all night drinking. People sleep on a pile of filthy stuffed animals - god knows what else goes on there. Full of bugs. No one does their washing up. Too much mess from other guests, and blood on our bedroom walls from mosquitoes.

    Not very clean, toilets and bathrooms are limited. Only one bathroom each floor. Quite smelly in the room. However, it's well located and cheap, can stay for one or two nights if you don't mind cleanliness.

    I’ve stayed in hostels all over the world, and this has to have been the dirtiest i’ve ever seen. There are only volunteer staff running this hostel, and they are in charge of cleaning. First of all, there is trash everywhere at all times. The dorm room was overflowing with dirt and garbage and filth. the sheets smelled and were not clean. the shower was clogged and filthy. The location is decent and price is cheap so you get what you pay for. I moved to a hostel around the corner and am happier
