    Fabulous

    The hostel is walking distance to Hongik which is a lively food and shopping area. The staff here were super friendly and even upgraded my room for the 2 nights I was there. There are also lots of people in the communal area. My only issue would be with cleanliness. A lot of guests left dishes with water in them in the kitchen which attracted mosquitoes and there was a lots of hairs on the floor in my room...but hey, it happens in hostels. Otherwise, I would stay here again (and have done)

    Very Good

    Came here whilst I spent a long weekend in Korea. The guesthouse was very decent value for money and I think it’s a pretty good place to stay if you are on a budget. The cleanliness of the hostel is pretty average and the facilities are what you expect for the price. My only issue with the hostel was the fact that I had about 100 mosquitos in my room. I got bitten about 50 times and had to go to a pharmacy to get some cream. It was very unpleasant to sleep in the room because of this.

    Great location. Common room is a somewhat dingy basement and the rooms are loud but it's worth it if you're looking for a real budget accommodation! Right next to Hongik station!

    I only wanted a bed to sleep on for the two days I was visting seoul and that’s what I got. I guess it’s understandable for the price.

    The unfriendliest staff that I ever found in hostel/hotel/accommodation. Waited +10 mins to check in, even though there was 2 people at the front desk but just pretend they didn't see me. When we communicated, were rude and not welcoming at all (never heard an hello or even goodbye and stayed for a week). Noise all night from people partying in the basement and smoking/drinking in the entrance. Wc and the lobby were very dirty. I only recommend if money is an issue, otherwise stay away!!!

    Staff was rude when we ask for directions, he said “there is a map right there”, like we didn’t have a map. Also there was no hot water on the four floor, our dorm was always a mess, never once clean. If it wasn’t for the location I would have given them a lower review

    There’s bedbugs and mosquitos everywhere. The foreign workers are nice but however the front desk guys are very rude and disrespectful. Not friendly whatsoever, very unkind people and not a good place to stay at all.
