the air conditioner was really dirty
they haven't cleaned the air conditional at all. lots of dust was on the filter and outside of the machine. i saw something black when i turned on it so i opened the cover. it was terrible. i had to open the window all the night such a hot day.

The doubles room with attached bathroom is more than adequate. Location is fantastic, walking distance to Insadong (it looked further on map), if you have the muscle power, walking to Myeondong is doable too. From Anguk station on Line 3, come out from Exit 4, do a U-turn, follow the footpath (along Samil-Daero) till you come to first left turn into (Samil-Daero 30), pass the palace. Once you are in Samil-Daero 30, you will see an elementary school on the right, you can tell by lots of yellow coloured buses parked. Then, take the first right turn into Samil-Daero 32 ga-gil. Just follow the lane, don't worry about it, look up for the Ibis Hotel sign though, and head in that direction. Once you find Ibis Hotel, it is just behind the hotel car park. If coming via Airport bus 6011, alight and walk with traffic along the road ,cross the road to Anguk station exit 4 and follow the above instruction. Getting the airport bus 6011(intervals of 30 mins) to Incheon airport near Anguk station is cheaper, at 10,000kw, and has fewer stops than the one at Dohwamunmo near to Jongno 3 ga station (interview of 15mins) 12,000 kw. I will definitely stay here again.

Best hostel in Seoul
After trying several other hostels, I found this one to be the best! Their customer service is on point and the hostel itself is amazing! I would highly recommend it. They also have a roof deck that is incredible!

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.
