      Great stay!”

      I had stayed here in the past and wasn't too impressed, but my have they improved! There's new management running the hostel, and they have done a great job upgrading and renovating the place. A full size bed, with personal wifi connection, tv, and a restroom in-suite at such a good price! The lounge is cozy and there's even breakfast included. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The location was good, just a short walk from the train station and easy access to anywhere in Seoul. There's also plenty of restaurants and convenience stores nearby. The staff are fantastic as well. They were very friendly and welcoming. Definitely recommend!

      Great value for money”

      The property was very gracious in allowing an upgrade of the room from a single to a double. The room was very comfortable and cozy. For those who stay outdoors for the better part of the day, this property comes as a great choice as it offers the comforts of a private space where you can relax after a long and tiring day at very reasonable price.

      Great hostel, convenient location within Seoul close to the center. The staff is very helpful and it's easy to get into conversations. The dormitory room as well as the common area are spacious and clean. There is also a big kitchen to prepare your own meals. All in all, very good value for money.
