Comfortable for travel. 1 hour from airport by Bus 6002 or Use subway. This hostel nearly important place good for travel.
Fm C. Solo travelers China, December 8, 2014
Be aware if you choose it in winter!

It is near subway so you can walk to Jonggak station within ten minutes, Gwanghwamun in ten minutes, Myeongdong, Gyeongbok or Insadong in twenty minutes. There are restaurants and bars nearby the hostel so the location is not bad. But the environment is poor. First, the service girls, who are part-time students, work on shifts. Most of them suck in English so it is difficult to communicate although they are very willing for any help. Second, the room that only has a bed and a small cabinet is indeed too small. Once you lay down your luggage, you even have no space for standing. Pillow and thin quilt seems not quite neat. Fortunately, the room is warm. However, it is cold outside. The public restroom has no thermostatic equipments. The window is even opening. I headed to there in December so the outdoor temperature is a few degrees below zero. You can imagine that it is courageous if you go to toilet and take a shower. The bathroom seems dilapidated. You will not feel good if you mind hygiene. The biggest problem is the water supply system. When more than one person uses water at the same time, the amount of water would be reduced and the water temperature would be dropped down, even to cold water so you have to choose a bath time without people and also first check the water supply before undress; otherwise you will have a memorable and hard bathing experience. Everytime while I was picking my clothes and holding toiletries to walk upstairs to take a bath, I was tired and afraid. It should be more difficult for girls to make-up. When you sleep, you would hear many voices all around. There are voices of talking phone in other rooms, voices of walking on the corridor, voices of people chatting at public space, voices of accessing in and out the lift. Overall, this place is a bit like a cell in jail. It is known that inexpensive hostel would not provide enjoyment, but you have to be careful to buy uncomfortable in winter. Good luck!

Location is Great, but no wifi...

location, location, location
I was pleasantly surprised to find it so easily just using the agoda map and pictures. The hostel is in a building where you have to climb the first floor stairs to the second floor to get to the elevator. Office is on the 6th. The staff charges 10K won for key deposit, so be sure to have cash on you. You get it back when you turn it in. The room was small and had a single lumpy bed and small drawer and hanger. Ladies bathroom was one floor down. I could never get a wifi signal, at all. Window didnt have a curtain or shade. I have stayed at other hostels with better facilities within the same price range. Best thing was the clean sheets and cover. Oh, yeah...no heat. I slept in my clothes, sweater, gloves, scarf and knit hat. Brrrrrr. Will not return.

Fatin S. Groups Malaysia, November 5, 2014
Suitable for backpacker traveller

Budget, Great Location, Basic Amenities
The hostel is located on 6th floor, suitable if you really need the place just for sleeping, if compared with dormitary concept room offered by other hostel, this hostel provides bunk bed private room, which very much suitable for small body,figure as the room is limited in space.They offer free rice but no towel provided.Make sure to bring your own towel. The location however is great, just 5 minutes walking distance to jonggak subway,15 minutes to chandeokgung and very much nearby to other palaces as well.Book this place,only if you are on budget and not fussy

Near KTX, Near Convenience Stores, Near Resto
Location is near KTX but it was quite difficult to find since the directions provided in their website is not updates

Good Location

Good Location, Small Room, Dirty Bathroom
Location is very good. Near Jonggak Station (just 5 minute walk) but the room is very small. ang the bathroom is very dirty.. euughhh...
Chin M. Solo travelers Malaysia, August 1, 2014
good location, friendly staff, too small room

great location, staff knows multiple language (english, chinese, korean) and very helpful and friendly,
Good.just that the room is really small, and you have to carry the luggage all the way from bus stop, walk across few streets, then climb up to the second floor to take elevator
Hui T. Solo travelers China, June 21, 2014
Only suitable in winter and Scuba diving lovers

No air-condition, noisy, feeding mosquitos and no privary
NO air-condition, they always shut it down and the staff say it will be turned on only above 24 C degree and show me his mobile phone app and it indicated it is 24C. But if you go into the room, which was ignited by sunset, the room temperature is sure 30C. There is no thermometer in room, he just use his apps to show Seoul observatory is now 23C. Okay, open the window but no convection as there is only one side has window. How to give convection? Okay, open the door and it is fixed, room started to cool down after two hours. Man, where is the privacy? Why I don't sleep in corridor instead? After opened the windows and door, there are two more major problems, not just privacy. One is mosquito. Mosquito will frequently visit you for dinner. Second is noise form the window, there are at least five restaurants just in front of you and opening till 01:00, people are drinking, BBQ and shouting. Nightmare is not just this, a Karaoke lounge in the Basement of this building. The Hostel is a good place for you to learn Korean even you are sleeping. You will learn the native tongue very soon. For those rooms without window, you are so lucky, you only have to deal with Mosquito and no oxygen with high temperature, bring along oxygen tan and learn Scuba diving free. Free Sauna in summer time. Scuba diving for all seasons,. Privacy? Sorry. Blood donation and itch are yes. They indicated they have air-condition in Agoda as facilities, yes they have but not turned it on and selectively turned it on. Moreover no elevator in 7/F. 7/F is strange and I suspect they added this floor or part of this to the building without approved by Structural and safety department. Overall is absolutely highly not recommended. If you want to find a place to have a good rest after a whole day sight seeing, please SKIP Seoul Hostel Center to protect your happy trip. If you doubt, and think what I said may not reliable, I have photo and video to share with you for justice. Justice this by you own.
