Unpleasant Stay

Good Location, Clean
When we arrive at the hostel, we were greeted by an unprofessional staff (speak Chinese). We were there early and requested to keep our luggage at the hostel first. The staff asked us to leave our luggage at the lobby next to the lift ! We asked if there is a proper place to keep the luggage, and she replied that it is safe to put the luggage there beside the lift ! When we enter the room, there were no towels / shampoo / soap. We had to request from the staff and then only she gave us towels and shampoos. There is no remote control for the air-conditioner. The temperature of the water is hard to adjust (waited 15 minutes and the water is still cold) and when we requested help from the staff, she said just wait longer and it will eventually become hot ! Anyway, the condition of the hostel is clean and comfortable. The stay would be pleasant if the hostel is taken care by professional staff. The kitchen is small and no wash basin available.

Good location but dirty rooms

1) Location is great - near subway Namsan and Namdaemun market; 10 min walk to Myeongdong shopping area. 2) They have elevator.
Room was quite dirty. To get towels and toiletries you have to come down to reception and ask for them. Breakfast is limited to toasts. Staff doesn't speak English (chinese and korean only).

Kind staff

The staff can speak mandarin and helpful, it is quite difficult to adjust the bath room water temperature right during winter time, either too cold or too hot.. this is the only disadvantage here.

Bad, Dirty, inconvenient

the receptionist can speak mandarin
The room is dirty, got insect inside the room. Got air conditioner inside, but the house keeper take the remote away. Not allow us to use Air conditioner in winter!! just have a little window is not enough to breath! Also, No curtain for the window, everyday we wake up by the sunshine in the early morning! It's really bad for our travelling! Cannot sleep well for our trip at all coz of these! Moreover, the toilet is also dirty! The temperature of water for shower either cold or really very hot! One more thing is the make up table got no chair for us! The check out time is too early! 10:30 have to leave, even I requested late check out, they need us to pay for it! No more going that motel!!!
