    Have stayed at this hostel twice now, and it's been great both times. The communal area in the basement is colourful and welcoming, and everybody is very friendly. It's been great for mingling with other travellers. I love the social atmosphere. The rooms are well heated, quiet and the beds are soft. Also an awesome area of town and handy to the metro. Great food nearby. Gwen from reception was really lovely and helpful. Will definitely stay again next time I come to Seoul.

    This is third time for me to stay in this hostel, I stayed in this hostel in 2017 and 2018 before. This hostel has excellent location and very good value for money. However, one local male staff, about 175cm tall without glasses and with a black mask was very impolite to me. I just want to ask him a question, he refused to answer my question and keep watching a video on computer. He had no respect to me. For the other staff, they are very nice.

    I only stayed here one night and didn’t check out any of the common areas. I arrived late in Seoul without a place to stay and it did the job, the staff were nice.

    The hostel was nice and clean, like 7$ a night great value for money The only problem was the staff’s horrible attitude. Haven’t seen such rude human beings all my travel. But as long as you don’t need anything from them That’s a pretty good place to stay

    I’d been to Kimchee Hongdae before and didn’t have a good experience, so I vowed never to try Kimchee Shinchon. But I caved. I just needed a bed to be closer to the airport in the morning and the single private room was so cheap. But I regretted it. This place is grimy feeling, stains on the bedding, thin walls and noisy guests, no control of the AC in the private room, staff was not great, sockets left open with wires showing, chair felt like it was gonna break. Only try if you just don’t care.

    No security at night. I understand that you may have drunk, loud idiots causing disturbances but the staff was nowhere to be seen. It was my second and last time staying there.
