    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Can't ask for more from a hostel!”

    location, staff friendliness, cleanliness

    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.

    Excellent Service”

    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!

    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.

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.

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.
