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.

Fun stay at Yellow Brick Hostel

very accommodating staff, reliable wifi, accessible location
My friends and I very much enjoyed our stay in Yellow Brick Hostel. You get a lot for what you pay – fast wifi, breakfast, clean rooms. The staff has also been very accommodating, helpful with directions, and fun to share stories with. Location of the hostel is walking distance from tourist sites like Insadong and Bukchon Hanok Village. When given a chance to come back to korea, we will definitely book in this hostel again. Thank you very much for the warm welcome. Hope to see you again! 감사함니다! :D
