Wonderful hostel for the youth
One of the best hostel I have ever stayed in Seoul, you can find almost everything you need here - 5mins walk from Sinchon subway, super friendly and helpful staff (fluent in English & Mandarin!), clean room with fast wifi/air-con/hair-dryer/refrigerator/TV, free self-laundry......and countless tiny but useful stuff that they can offer which you could find on their website. Not to mention its room rate is constant 365 days. I could really feel Chocolate Tree is trying its best to treat us travelers a memorable Korea trip. Certainly a good bargain. Definitely will re-visit here next time.

Good place to stay for solo traveler
Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was tidy. Location great as its close to the subway line. You can go to Hongdae too just a few stops away. I managed a 20 minute walk there just fine.

Awesome single room
I was given a perfect room with window, private bathroom, refrigerator, a desktop pc and toiletries. There is also wifi for each of the room. Although there is a little problem with the original wifi, the staff immediately gave me a replacement and I have no problem using the other one. The TV given was not streaming properly maybe due to the original wifi, but I was fulfilled with the desktop PC to surf the net so it's not a problem to me. Water filter is also provided in the common area which is a save of money from buying drinking water outside. Staff were very friendly and helpful all the time!

A good place to stay
Chocolate Tree is for places of its kind very close to 5 stars; I wanted to put 4.5 stars for value for money and facilities but it would only let me put 4. As I booked fairly late, it would probably be even more affordable booked sooner, and the only reason I couldn't put 5 stars for facilities is there were a few minor structural things that might be improved (a bathroom in a meeting area that was not fully opaque/finalised and a couple of loose parts in walls etc..). Overall it is a pleasant place with attentive staff and nice touches such as the range of toiletries in the bathroom and homely, calming features and tones. There are TVs (and other things I didn't use) and great wifi. It is near good social areas and everything else is easy to reach. And it is fairly easy to be social meeting other guests due to the downstairs shared area where breakfast is included (and technically can be eaten later in the day along with tea and coffee). I think upper level rooms are blessed with larger windows and I liked how this aired out the room. If I went back to Seoul, I would stay here!
