Its okay but pls improve sthㅠㅠ
It's cheap because i choose the 6-bed female dormitory but i think it's too far from subway(10-15mins walking from hongik sth exit2) and its no breakfast. I know this country is safe but you should set the password of the door or else give us a key. And the first time i came i didnt know who is the owner or staff.. Plssss make an information about it. Shower room and toilet is great! Computer is locked and i cant use it if i not ask for a password from staff. I dont have a personal locker because someone living in the dorm put everything in 9 lockerssss!!!!

Reasonable Priced Hostel Stay

The Birdsnest is close to the subway train station, the Hongdae City Center and there are lots of places to eat within a one mile radius of the hostel.
The Birdsnest provides a room for a reasonable price. The hostel is clean enough to stay and it is close enough to the metro transportation as well as an active city center. I did not wake up early enough to eat breakfast at the hostel and I was not going rate it; however, I was not able to continue the review without rating it. Overall, it is a descent place to stay at the right price.

An ok place if you dont mind a little walk to hd

The staff was pretty nice. The location is okay but you have to walk a bit. The environment is more homey than other guesthouses in the area that charge similar prices. Not the best but decent.
It was an average quality stay for a solo traveler.

They could get a second star if they improve

Location, Breakfast included
It was great without doubt but I think if they clean and organise things a little bit better they will get a second star
