Not preferable if coming with family

Room is spacious. Room is clean. Location is near to subway station
The front desk staff is not an English speaker. Hard to communicate even with simple English. Location is a bit hard to find but near to subway station.

Very good value for money

Location, room, breakfast
We liked it very much, great value for money. Near the mtr, breakfast was good. For the 4-5 day stay it's the best place for its money!

Great stay

Lift, shared kitchen and bedroom
We had a great 4 days stay in Jongnowon. As is really hard to get vegetarian meal (without onion n garlic) in Korea, we have to cook, and this hostel provide us with basic cookware, oil, salt, pepper. The best thing is we can use kitchen anytime before 11pm. We met new friends in this shared kitchen too~ Bedroom and ensuite bathroom also in good condition. Overall, is great~

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.
