Very Good

I think the low rating for this hostel is a little unfair. If you want a quiet hostel in a great location that feels more like Korea than the Disneyland areas, then this place is perfect. Next to a great flea market. There’s no atmosphere but you have your party hostels for that. I do feel however that it’s just a cheap dorm masquerading as a hostel. I’m not sure what the significance of the art bit is? There’s zero warmth from the staff also, particularly the manager. It’s just a business vibes

Great price for the location and length of stay. Loved having a cat to pet and a more private area to sleep in. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for something with a convenient location for a longer stay

I'm never demanding. I'm a humble traveler and I know how much I'm paying for. However, with the few days I stayed, the trash from the rubbish bins were never taken out. The rubbish bin at the kitchen was all the time full. The floor inside the room is clean. There is no reception desk - you will randomly meet perhaps-the-staff persons who stay there as well. The wooden structure to make beds into capsules obstructs the light from the windows.The messiness in common area may give u a homey feel.
