    The hostel was a little hard to find at first but other than that I had no problems. Everything was clean, the staff was kind and helpful, the rooms were really comfortable. The atmosphere is quiet so if you’re looking to meet lots of people this might not be the best choice. But I liked it!!

    Really nice hostel, only negative was there were only two other guests. It was a little weird being one of only 3 people in a 5 story building. Staff was friendly and chatted when they were there. Other than that it was nice and clean. I liked the rooftop lounge. There isn't much in the area immediately near the hostel, but it's very close to two major train lines which made it very easy to get places (15 minutes to Insadong). Also nice stream nearby to walk and night markets are walkable.

    I had a really nice time at this hostel. It was clean and quiet, close to the Dongdaemun area. When I booked this hostel, free breakfast was not indicated on their description, but they did provide free breakfast from 9-11am. I had also lost my phone in Korea, but the staff was incredibly helpful and called the taxi company and other numbers so I was able to recover my phone. The only downside was that one bathroom was shared for the whole female dorm, but it was barely an inconvenience.

    This was a pretty nice place. The location was great too. All that was an issue was getting there. The directions were confusing and they should be switched. We had to text one of the workers on kakao to come and help us haha! But overall it was a really nice place.

    Stay was good, a bit confusing at reception due to no check in or checking of passport or payment. Based on trust which was unexpected but nice.

    It feels like you are staying at a friend's place. Which isn't bad but can be a little off-putting. Overall I would stay here again.

    Secure, and in the market, shopping and arts area of Seoul. Nicely separates dorms into little cubby hole like rooms. It was clean, with the needed facilities. Note that they did not accept card payment. Available only when the owner is in, which made it a little difficult. Also, it was extremely hot (one of the hottest summers in the last 100 years), so the aircon was set extremely low, centrally and we were not able to change the settings in the room.
