value for money, great location
We had a really pleasant stay at Yellow Brick; great location within a few steps from Jongno-sam-ga station; situated right in the heart of the culture hub of Insadong..

Great location, value for money, helpful staff
Great location and value for money. Jordan, the manager of the hostel, was helpful. He offered to drop me off at airport bus stop at Changdeokgung Palace. It was very thoughtful of him. Would stay here again! :)

Great staff, overpriced tiny rooms
Staff was outstanding. Helpful, resourceful. Room was terribly tiny. Bathroom was even smaller. For price of room, better options exist in the area. Area is great if want to go to historic sites; away from Seoul party scene however.

It is value for your money
Clean, good location, fairly affordable.
It was good. Cooling and heating system intact. Bathroom was super small, but it is a hostel anyway, and at least you get private bathrooms. Location is in good proximity to cultural and historical sites.

Comfy stay
Location, atmosphere, cleanliness
Yellow Brick Hostel is conveniently located near Insa-dong, Jongmyo Shrine and the Changdeokgung and the airport limiusine bus stop. Very clean and the rooftop gives a great view of the city. Typical breakfast (egg, toast, juice and coffee). Dormitory rooms have attached bathroom.

Great Hostel
Friendly and helpful staff, clean room, got elavator
The hostel is quiet, mine is twin room with 2 single bed, room is small but shower room is big with hot and cold water supply, enough to put one 28 inch luggage and one 24 inch luggage. Simple breakfast with toast and self cook egg, never have short supply. Got elavator, great for those who hate climbing staircase. Hostel location nearby airport bus and about 10 min walk to subway. many eatery shop around hostel, easy to get food. There is a 24 hours convenient shop just next to the hostel, very convenient to get any stuff there. Hostel staff can speak good English, very friendly and helpful, received great service from them, bravo. Towel, hair dryer, shampoo and shower gel are supplied FOC, you can bring down used towel to reception area in exchange for a new one. No housekeeping during stay, but you may throw your rubbish at the big trach bin near the elavator at each floor. I won't mind coz don't really like housekeeping staff enter my room when I'm away. Has 3 computer at reception area for use, however, it's all in Korean, luckily I brought my own laptop. Got free wifi in room, good speed. Overall, I will highly recommend this hostel for those who wish to stay in a quiet and cozy place with good service.

Pleasant experience
friendly and helpful staff, clean room
our experience was pleasant. We hope that Yellow brick will maintain its budget-friendly prices but not sacrificing the cleanliness of the hostel rooms. If we're going back to Korea, we're sure that we'll check-in to this hostel again.
