    Everyone was great and fun at the hostel. The owner, Mark, was really nice, helpful, and personable. It was settling that they had lockers you could use under your beds so you could keep your personal belongings safe. The location was hard to find at first being new to the area, the signs on the street are small, but once you find it it was really easy to get to and from the Subway (Hongik University Station) and the busy streets of Hongdae.

    Everything was perfect here, very nice, very clean. The only observation would be the outside patio. A little trim to the bushes and some cleaning would be nice. The private, two bed room is the way to go.

    If I ever go back to Seoul, I’ll definitely stay at Kpopstay again! Not only the location is amazing (2~3 minutes away from Hongik Univ. subway station by foot), but the staff is also very friendly which makes the atmosphere really nice. The dorms and the bathrooms are clean as well. The common rooms are also really nice if you want to hang out with everyone!

    Nice hostel, confortable beds. There is not kitchen, and the shared bathrooms has a lack of privacy. People at the reception were great and allways willing to help.

    Stayed 5 nights with my friend. Hostess greeted us but remained unfriendly and distant throughout our stay. Our private room door could not properly lock. Something was wrong with the lock. It wasn't fixed when problem issued. "Breakfast" was toast but just with either butter, peanut butter, or "jam" but I guess for price it's okay. The worst was the towels. For 5 nights we had to use the same towel... When asked about it, hostess told us to dry it and reuse.. gross. Recommend using your own.

    KPopstay was one of the most distinctly average hostels I’ve ever stayed at. It was clean but had zero life, the staff at the desk had little idea about Korea. The hostel agreed to changing our booking to one less day on arrival, but then insisted on charging us for that extra night even when reconfirming that this was what they said. I would only recommend to stay at this hostel if you want somewhere to sleep. If you actually want a hostel who can do hostel services, go anywhere else
