Satisfied with a comfortable accommodation where six hometown friends can gather together... It was even better because it was a place where you can enjoy various delicious restaurants and shopping in Yeonnam-dong with a lively atmosphere ^^

The staff were very friendly and provided guidance and explanations! Although I checked in late at night, I had no trouble because I had exchanged emails in advance! There was no remote control for the air conditioner, but when I mentioned it, they gave me one and I was able to spend a comfortable time! I would like to use it again if I have the opportunity.

Love this Hostel! It's right in the heart of Hongdae but still set back far enough to avoid noise. The rooms are well taken care of and furnished with all the amenities you could need. This is my 'go to' place when I am up in this area of Seoul. The staff is super friendly and helpful and explains everything you need to know about navigating the hostel after hours. Their check in time is pretty barrow so make sure you let them know when you're checking in so they can meet you. The hostel is locked afterhours to hostel guests only. They have lockers outside if you arrive early or check out with some time to spare. Small backpacks and carry on size suitcases fit, but nothing larger.
