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!

Thanapat W. Solo travelers Thailand, November 21, 2014

It good if you don't worry about the room size, It near two palace and market you can walk and sight seeing and don't far from subway for easy link to the other place.
