Good location with in-house rooftop bar
The place is reachable by airport limousine, and just a walking distance to subway. There are some stores for shopping nearby or you may go to Dongdaemun shopping area on foot. There's a bar on rooftop if you don't want to spend a night drinking far from the place and struggling on the way back.

Friendly Guesthouse in Seoul
Nice place to stay! After the booking for 3 nights, I also booked another night before going back to my hometown. The owner was very supportive in providing information, customer services! Price is also reasonable for experience Seoul and nearby areas! Easy to get to the metro station and go everywhere you want! Thanks so much ;)

You get what you pay for!
I arrived on a Friday night checked in, then went out to grab something to eat only to come back and find out my bed had been claimed by another patron. I just wished there had been a system in place to prevent awkward situations like this happening! The bathroom was another issue, as it was dirty, cramped and smelled of mildew from lack of ventilation! Th hostel was very easy to locate and get to from the subway. The street also housed a few gentleman's clubs I think, and being a solo female traveller it made me feel uneasy walking down that street. Overall, I wouldn't book this hostel in the future and would rather pay extra for a more comfortable stay.

Convenient location
Kimchee Dongdaemun Guesthouse is conveniently located near the Dongdaemun shopping area and the Heunginjimun Gate and Seoul city wall. Thomas, the host and his team wee very friendly and helpful. The airport limousine bus station is just walking distance from the guesthouse. Costs only KRW10,000 to go to the airport from there.

Good bang for your buck.
The money we spent was worth it! The staff was really friendly and the place was clean. It's a hostel so don't go expecting anything super fancy. But it has everything you need for the most part. Nothing to complain about! I will be staying there again in the future.

Very nice!
The room was clean and the staff were friendly, especially the owner Thomas was really kind. He carried out suitcases to the downstairs when we were leaving :) We also liked the common room. Very comfy atmosphere. I recommend this place for convenience and want to hang out till late at night.
