Nice friendly atmosphere, lovely staff who are so willing to assist. Very clean and neat facilities and rooms. Location near Sungkyunkwan University, plenty of things to eat and see nearby. I had a wonderful time.
No doubt one of the best!”
Clean rooms, friendly staff, location just a few minutes away from Airport Bus Stop, subway and restaurants. Always looking forward to my stay in this guesthouse :)
This is one of the best hostels I have ever been. The staff is super friendly. Everybody chill together in the living room (staff+guest). The hostel is full of information about Seoul, South Korea, traditional dishes, recommendations, games, books, guitar, ... I was supposed to stay 2 days but extended to one week. I would have stayed even more if I could.
Bang for your bucks!”
I have been to Korea several times and this is the first time where I had the feeling of being home - the ladies at the reception were friendly and attentive; the place itself was near everything (although I got lost on my first time going there); accesibility wise it's a thumbs up for me. Minyoung and his wife were very helpful and I even extended 1 more night because it was that good. I felt comfortable all throughout my stay and made new friends. Definitely will be coming back the next time I am in Seoul.
Really great hostel. Excellent location in a lively area and close to the subway which makes everything accessible. Clean dorms, comfy beds and good common and kitchen area. Staff are friendly and super helpful. Only thing I'd ask for is curtains for the beds to add privacy
palace areas are possible to walk”
generally Koreans have clean houses and this guesthouse is no exception. i liked the common area, very welcoming and can chill out with other travellers. my sister and I stayed in room for 2, there is 1 bunk bed, tiny space but no issues on that. we just notice the room heating has some problem cause we feel really cold, the floor is cold, that we end up sleeping side by side in lower bunk. when we transfer to 4-bed female, the heating is perfect. coffee and tea available 24/7, can cook but we didnt try. near the palace areas, hyewa university. take the direct bus to airport if you have heavy luggage. must check their map on the wall for food guide, we found a 10k won all you can eat korean bbq samgyupsal in their map. it's near hyewa university station on top of building with artbox sign. really worth!!! also try kyochon chicken super delicious! must bring own toiletries. there are toiletries but no sign if free so we didn't use. overall highly recommended place!
Cozy place, value for money”
I've been to INSIDE twice. My second visit was on 15th May with group traveler. We're stayed at another building. Surprisingly, the 5 of us stayed at one-complete apartment which I like most in term of facilities, cleanliness and most importantly we have our own private room and bathroom. INSIDE never fail to fulfill my need regardless traveling couple or group. Keep the good work!
Worth your money!”
I was staying at INSIDE for 4D3N for my couple trip. The front staff very friendly and helpful. The location just 2-4 station from attraction places. The room very cozy and cute :)It definitely worth your money specially backpacker. Surely will stay here again
Wonderful staff, comfortable room”
Our room was very clean and had access to air conditioning, outside we were surprised to find a washing machine to use for free. The staff was excited to share information with us about what to do near the hostel as well as getting to the airport. Overall an excellent place to stay at a great price
Can't ask for more from a hostel!”
Super helpful staff and clean rooms are what make this Hostel an ideal place to stay in Seoul. The staff waited up for me even though my flight was delayed, and still took the time to sort me out for my early morning tour. I stayed in the deluxe single. While there isn't anything particularly "deluxe" about the room, it did have everything I needed. Small, but very clean and with its own nice bathroom and great hot shower. The area is also extremely convenient. Just a short walk to the metro and famous palaces. The streets around the hostel are filled with tons of cool little coffee shops and restaurants. Across the street from the Hostel is a 7-11. I can honestly say that I'd recommend this place without hesitation.
we booked to stay In the hostel but we were put in an apartment ten mins away which meant there was zero atmosphere and no chance to meet people. we were unlucky with the people we were sharing the apartment with also. would not recommend
I was staying here with my Mom a year ago. We came late at night (around 11pm-ish) and the staff was very kind to wait for us. I asked her about the operational time of the bus from airport to the hostel through email and she answered it immediately. During my stay, I asked for an iron but forgot to take the iron at the main building before I was out from the hostel (the have separated buildings) and when I came back, the iron was at my room. Super helpful! The location to the bus stop is not really far (you can reach many tourism spots from this bus stop), but the subway is quite a walk. The neighborhood was quiet despite the building located a little bit near to the main street. You can find food stalls/ restaurants around since there is a campus nearby, and there is this kind of mini Myeongdong across the main street. I once also stayed here with my friends on 2013, we booked a shared room but got an upgrade to private room without additional charge. Definitely will stay here again!
My last visit here was 2015. I came again last April. I still prefer this place if i come to Seoul. 👍👍👍👍
Give me my money back!!”
Of course I would not recommend here. This is a place where you get unhumane treatment and offenses! Not only it ruined my image of beautiful Seoul but the bad hostile experience will be remembered forever!!! Learn to respect people u rude wife
If you want to be insulted and ruin your vacation”
If you want to experience insults, privacy invaded and interrogated during your vacation then book here. The crazy female owner will watch you on camera over every move you make 24/7 and will come to your face and threaten you and insult you in everyway when it's a hostel you pay to chill out for your break.
Good location ”
Close to airport express bus station (5mins walk) and close to subway station (5mins walk). Lots of food at reasonable prices. Friendly and helpful staff. I have problem operating the shower hot water pipe. Suggest to provide a pail to fill up warm water for easy shower. Overall very happy with Backpackers inside and will recommend to friends.
Comfortable and clean”
Stayed for 8 nights. It was comfortable and private. Room temperature was adjustable to your own liking. Room was clean and had private toilet in the room. Will definitely come back with my sister this time!
First Out of the Country Family Getaway”
Our first out-of-the country adventure has been made more memorable, comfortable and convenient, thanks to Backpackers Inside. The owners and the staff were very acccommodating and prompt in attending to our concerns, and the facilities met our basic needs well, in a land away from home. A plus would be the strategic location of the place for traveling.
Feels like our own home. There are two building of INSIDE, just walk two minutes from each other building. Super convenient to the 7E/Cu and others. Near to the bus stop and metro station (Hyehwa Exit 4). you will see Hollys Coffee after you reach the exit 4. I feel like a little Myeongdong there.
Home away from home”
Minyoung, his wife and their staff were so hospitable that we find ourselves befriend with each other. Within the vicinity of the hostel are a number of food stalls, restaurants that offers sumptuous delicacies.
