Strategic Location

We stay for 7 days at backpackers hostel. For direction, take subway to Hoehyeon Station, Line 4, Exit 4. Walk straight around 20m after exit, u ll see the uphill road on your left. Take that uphill road and walk around 100m. The hostel ll be on ur left. Suggest not to take subway if u got heavy luggage. Just take AREX/KTX from Airport direct to Seoul Station. From Seoul Station, just take cab (I'll cost u only 3000 won, just tell taxi driver to go to nandaemun market if he's not sure hostel location). U will regret if u choose subway (Hoehyeon station) while bring along ur heavy luggage bcoz Hoehyeon station doesnt have lift and u need to climb SO MANY stairs (Up to 3-4 levels). This hostel also in walking distance to Seoul Station. Pro: Have lift, simple breakfast provided (bread), microwave, water dispenser (cold, hot, ice), owner can speak fluently in Malay, very stategic location (nandeamun market on ur right and namsan park on ur left). Myeongdong ll be in walking distance. Bus stop to namsan tower, itaewon etc will be in front of nandaemun market, owner and cleaner also friendly to baby. Con: No tower (u must request, however the size is too small), no toiletries (must bring by urself), uphill location (very tiring if u not fit), early checkout (10.30am), no washing machine. This hotel is next to KPOP Residence.

Couldn't wish for a better place as a backpacker

Location, In-room toilets, and the comfy beds
I wouldn't complain. Definitely will recommend others to stay here. Located like 2 mins walk from the Hoehyeon Subway station and it is so easy to find. Friendly staff as well.

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.

Friendly and the owner can speak English & Malay

Friendly & Location
The location is good, very near the lrt stations, a lot of restaurants nearby. The staff could speak malay and English which got us so excited. As you cant find many Koreans who can actually speak or understand English. She was quite helpful. The place is clean and worth the money. The room was warm and cozy as it was snowing when we were there.
