Best hotel to choose especially for the price!!

Extremely clean, great price, great location
This place was awesome! I was surprised how clean it was and especially for the price! I'm from the U.S. And I can't find a hotel room for the same price and expect the same standards. I will definitely stay there again for the next time I'm in Seoul, hoping the prices won't change 😊

Every cent worth for the price of a budget hostel

Great location. Best price for a well equipped hostel. Very friendly staff.
Thumb up for the good location and walking distance to eateries and places of interest. Subways and bus to the airport are few minutes away. Bed sheets are white and clean. Good air cond. Hair dryer in the room and free hot drinks at the kitchen before 11pm. Good security as you need a code to enter after midnight. You could make your own free breakfast. Staffs are friendly, courteous and helpful. She was so kind to let us check in when we arrived very early. Hostel info and regulations are properly posted where guest will not miss reading them. Follow them and you know they are meant to make the guests happy. I strongly recommend and will definitely stay here on my next visit.

Comfortable Stay close to Insadong area

Location, Convenient, and Budget price
The Hostel has individual rooms as well, which makes it even convenient for a couple traveling on a budget. The staff is very friendly. Convenient Location being an easy walk to the Jongno-3ga Metro station which intersects 3 subway lines and the artsy Insadong neighborhood which has lots of food options, cafes, and shopping. The bathrooms are very simple with no bathtubs. The individual rooms are small and basic, as far as this you get what you pay for, but the rooms are clean. There is also a kitchen on the first floor and another plus is can meet other international travelers if that appeals to you. I would definitely stay here again.

Very good hotel for your budget.

Very close to all tourist attractions, rooms are clean and staff speaks English.
Hotel staff was very accommodating considering I checked in very late. Having the airport limousine bus stop in front of the hotel, makes it easier to get to. The restaurant located on the basement of the hotel serves pretty decent food And is well worth it, specially on those freezing cold days when you don't want to go out.

Jongnowon: has everything, except that one thing

The size of the room, the cleanliness, the price
My boyfriend and I stayed at Jongnowon hostel for 12 nights. It was quite comfortable for the price: the room was pretty sizable, the bathroom was totally reasonable, and the amenities were helpful. Our only shared complaint would be about the bed. Don't believe that it is an inanimate object. No, each individual spring actively poked and prodded us throughout the night! Aside from that one significant thing, our stay was great!
