short and unpleasant

location, staff friendliness, price
the hostel was very dirty. Floors, sheets, tv, remote. The bathroom smelled awful and the sheets were stained.

convenient for one or two nights

location, convenience, decent
this is a hostel. the location is real good. 5 minute walk to metro station. 10 minute walk to myeongdong. 5 minute walk to lotte department store. many restaurants and pubs in area. the room was a basic hostel. bed was decent, toilet and shower was also decent. it was clean. no towels or necessities provided. wifi in room there is a security code to enter the building. if i'm not mistaken there was a communal kitchen as well.

Very Near to subway

Free Wifi Available, Free international Call
Hotel was conveniently located almost next to the subway station. hotel was decently clean. Shower head was spoilt and leaking. Water leaked out from the toilet into our room. Other than that, all was great.

The hostel is clean and well run. It is well worth the money and the location cannot be beat.

Low price, low frills

Price, location, staff
I stayed at the Myeongdong Hostel twice. First, be aware: the sign on the front says in English "Seoul Backpackers Hostel." It only says Myeongdong Hostel in handwritten Hanguel on a small piece of paper, taped to the front door. This caused me to pass by it twice. Night 1, boyfriend and I stayed in a double room. We were in room 301. It actually had a double bed and a single bed, and the bathroom was just a walled off section of the room with see-through walls. This was a bit inconvenient. No towels or toiletries are provided, but there is a TV. The bed was so hard that I couldn't sleep. Ther was one small window, probably 20"x20". Night 2 we stayed in 404, another double room. This one was much smaller than 301, but the bed was also much softer and I was able to sleep quite comfortably. Again, no toiletries at all, but this time I asked for towels at the front desk and they were given to me cheerfully. 404 smelled a bit closed up, but the AC worked fine and it was aired out easily. Again, there was only a very small window, so no natural sunlight. That said, I really liked this hostel. It was super cheap and a very good location, whether you are meeting at Lotte for the DMZ tour (as we were) or going shopping. The staff have native-level English and they are very, very helpful. They do take a 10,000W security deposit, which we didn't have to pay the first time as our first booking was through Agoda. I didn't wander around the facilities much, but they have a fridge for use, too. Definitely this is a frill-free place, but the cost and the location can't be beat.

Great for Budget Travellers

Location, Inexpensive, Train station at doorstep
Myeongdong Hostel is centrally located near the famous Myeongdong shopping area. If you like to explore the city on foot, it is also within walking distance to Dongdaemun, Namdaemun and Seoul Station. I checked into a clean family en-suite room, with limited room amenities. However, beware that there are no elevator in the building, so expect to carry your luggage up to your assigned level (we were on the 5th floor!). Do roam around the neighborhood as you will find some authentic Korean restaurants patronised by the locals near the hotel at a reasonable price.
