The location is just right behind Isaac toast and opposite Starbucks. The building was 30-40 years old, but the hostel itself have small room but new and clean.

Excellent location with good breakfast”
Excellent location, few minutes walk to Subway, directly above myeongdong street. Take exit 7 if you need escalator, else exit 5 is nearer to hostel. Turn around the corner after your see Isaac toast. The reception is at 13th floor, building look like an old office building. Room is very small with attached bathroom. Not a concern to us since we spend most of our time outside. Housekeeping only offered if you stay more than 3 nights. Anyway room is small, don't really need to clean up, just exchange your towels at the reception. Rooms are located at 11th,12th and 13th floor, smoking at rooftop. Small washing machines at all 3 floors, but no dryer, you can hang them with the racks provided (not more than 2 per room). Rooms are very near to each other, can hear very clearly what people next doors talking. Hot/cold water dispenser at reception, coffee (machine) freeflow at all times. Breakfast is simple and good. Breads, rice, soup, curry, cereal, nuggets, hotdogs, green salad with 4-5 dressings. There are toaster and microwave for us to use as well, we heated our dinner that we bought from the minimart and consume at the mini hostel cafe (yes, cafe, basins and reception is at same area), wash your own plates which I think its a good practice. Staff Chris is very friendly and he can speak Korean, English and Mandarin. Computers and printer are free to use, WiFi is strong even at rooftop. Umbrella is free to use as well, just be considerate and return after use. It's a little costly compare to other hostel/guesthouse at myeongdong, probably just above the fashion street. I don't mind to return to 57 Myeongdong hostel if I go back to myeongdong.

Perfect location”
Perfect locationfor staying to explore Seoul. It's near Myeongdong Station Exit 5 and also near bus stops. It's also located in a way where you still have peace and quiet even though you're in a busy district like Myeongdong. And it was an easy walk to scout for food every night. We enjoyed their breakfast and the staff are very helpful. It's a no frills hostel so you can't expect anything grand but it's worth the price. We'll definitely stay here again if we have the chance again to visit Seoul.

It's good for short stay”
the room is small and nice but everything packed in it. the linen is comfortable. and the staff are so nice they let me put my bags until late afternoon, though I had checked out earlier in the morning. the only downside only the entrance and small old elevator to reach the main lobby on 13th floor. But once you're on the hotel's floor you really forgot this is an old building as they really built the inside hostel corridor nicely.

Location was good!”
When you book the hotel, the owners will proceed to send you an email with directions how to get to the hotel! The location was very good as it was right near the Myeongdeong night market. However the toilet can be a little small, but everything else was good!

Best, complete accommodation in Myeongdong”
The view from our room was fantastic and the hostel is near Myeongdong, literally around 50 steps. It’s also approximately 200m to the Namsan Tower Cable Car. Our stay went by smoothly. Laundry was free. But the cleanliness of the room can still be improved, there was dust on one of the bed’s corners.

Generally location is great. Few steps away only from Myeongdong Exit 2. Though from the bus top some are not familiar of the exact location. The receptionists are accommodating. Cons - The room is a bit small for 3 and rest/bathroom so small and if you use the bathroom you need to turn off the light inside coz the cover is only a smoke glass. It was just off to see late at night all the trashes on the bldg. entrance.

Newly renovated, good budget hotel”
Located near myeongdong subway station exit 5/6, use exit 7 if you have luggage as there are escalators. Entrance of hotel is on side street (turn right after you walk past Issac toast and convenience store, you will see a unamed office building), hotel reception is on 13th floor. Staff are seemingly non-korean and speak mostly english or chinese. Cleanliness is a hit or miss given that they all seem to be part-time students and not professional cleaning staff. My sheets had stains and I got bitten by a bug on my first night. There is no daily cleaning service so just be aware, but you can request new towels. My room was facing main road so it was rather noisy at night with traffic, not sure if you can request for a quiet room. Otherwise good value for money given its location, close to myeongdong station but a fair bit of weaving through lanes and shops to get to the main subway line 2 (green line) euljiro 1 ga station.

My go to hotel whenever I go back to Korea. ”
The hotel is nice and comfy, the buffet style breakfast is really good, the staff are nice and accommodating. From airport to the hotel you can either ride a bus (6001,6015) or you can ride AREX express. We took the Arex express from and to the airport. I must say it’s a big hassle if you will take the Arex going back to the airport if you have heavy luggages, so take the Arex express from airport to hotel and take the bus from the hotel to the airport. The Hotel is just a few blocks away from Namsan tower and Namdaemun Market it’s just a fee minutes walk. Bus and train are easily accessible, we were able to go to different palaces, hanok village and cheonggye plaza by riding a bus. And Nami Island by riding a train. There are lots of food stalls and restaurant around the area. Also hotel is within myeongdong area so the cosmetic/ shoe shops are just around the corner. We bought are goodies in the pink market beside are hotel because it’s cheaper than the lotte market.
