    My stay at kpop stay was great! Clean, air conditioned, super cool and friendly staff, I felt safe and very much at home and the location is perfect - it’s central to the station (about 5-10 min walk from hongik university station) but tucked away in a residential area where you can get a nice quiet nights rest after a long day or night. Lots of good food and drinks just steps away, another thing that was important to me, didn’t have too far when I wanted something quick.

    KPopStay was a fantastic experience during my first time in Seoul. It's very accessible to moving around Seoul, but everything you could want is within walking distance anyway. The staff and owners were fantastic, providing tons of insight and a great atmosphere. I'll be back next time.

    I really loved my stay at KpopStay. It's easy to access the trains/ metro, close to all the great stores and attractions of Hongdae, but is on the quieter side. Which, for me, was exactly what I needed. Mark and Sherai were so welcoming and were super helpful when I needed it. I'm definitely staying here again when I'm back in Seoul!

    First, I booked for 3 nights but then I extended my stay by 7 more nights. It is a great Hostel with great staff! Even if I was not into KPop, nobody really cared. So you can stay there anyway. Thank you for hosting me ^^

    The location was very nice if you want things to do at night. From here it was also easy to get to other places in Seoul.

    Amazing staff and great social atmosphere!! Perfect for solo travellers! Only downside was the bathroom facilities, only one shower/toilet on the bottom floor but I rarely had to wait so not a huge issue. Will definitely stay here again when I come back to Seoul!!

    The bunks are large and comfortable. The mattress was firm, but not hard. There were two outlets in the bunk along with a light. There is a locker under the bed that they provide a key for. They provide a towel for the shower. Hot and cold showers. You can do laundry, but have to hang it out to dry. Fairly close to food and transportation. I would definitely stay again.

    Staff is very nice. Good location. Just a bit dingy. Upstairs is nicer than downstairs. Smells like moth balls and dog breath.
