5min from the train station, but poor facilities

I stayed in a double room for 7 nights. The good: - Located just 5min away from Sinchon train station was a plus but that's pretty much it. - The staff were very amicable and hospitable, so no troubles with making you feel at home. The ok: - The room size was comfortable and big enough for 2 people, compared to some other hostels I've stayed at. - They have SBS Sports which show EPL matches live on weekends. The bad: - In hostel wifi was unstable (tech speak: frequent disconnections and ip refreshes). Sending messages/emails/surfing the web was fine, but streaming videos (from say youtube/dailymotion) were impossible. Don't bother with the extremely slow pc provided in the room. - The showers were unstable. At times, the hot/cold water pressure would drop off at different intervals and I had to re-adjust the tap. On 2 other occasions there was no water from the showers and I had to wait 5minutes for it to come back on. - The room did not really feel clean, eg. there were some faint stains on the pillow casing. In summary while the prices was decent, I felt some basic amenities were lacking from my perspective.

Helpful staff

The staff were very helpful and considerate. We got there earlier than normal check in time but the staff offered us an empty room to rest before our room was ready.
Staff is really nice. The hostel may not be the most comfortable one but had all the basics you need. It's quite close to the subway, just 5-7 minutes walk. But bare in mind there's a slope before you get to the hostel, so if you are carrying a huge luggage or with hand holding baby, it may be a concern. Easy to go to Sinchon shopping street, just get out from another subway exit. Quite easy to get there from the airport, take airport bus route 6002 and find the exit 7, get to the KEB bank and you're almost there. A good choice for young travellers, as there isn't any elevator in the hostel. Generally we enjoyed the service there, will consider going back if we come back to sinchon again. Do not hesitate to contact the hostel staff for more information, they are really nice and helpful!

Great Guesthouse with a Rooftop Hang Out

Clean, Rooftop, Location
Our stay was great. The host were very friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable. The only complaint I would have is that the water from the sink drains directly onto the floor getting your toes wet when you wash hands or brush teeth. Other than that I liked every bit of it.
