    Excellent location, accommodating staff”

    Excellent location - near Sogang University and Sinchon Station. There's a convenience store nearby if you need to buy food, essentials, etc. The staff was very nice and accommodating, I needed to do something and he let me borrow his laptop to do my work. Provided free breakfast of egg, toast, jam, coffee etc. However, there was no door lock in the female dorm room, I would recommend to install one for safety. Still, good value for money.

    Nice hostel, modern, does everything it needs to do. Separate bathrooms for every room were very nice, lovely facilities overall, great location in an exciting area (Sinchon, Hongdae, Gyeongui Line Book Street), close to a very well-connected subway station (on the ring line, 2). Personal lockers would've sealed the deal, but still a very good hostel.

    Third time staying at Chocolate Tree, love going back as the hostel is located really near subway stations making it very accessible, even with our heavy luggages. Went back repeatedly because of the great service that I've received in my previous trips but was slightly disappointed this time. While most staffs were extremely friendly and helpful, we did encounter a particular staff that was not as friendly. That aside, I did enjoy the stay and will definitely consider going back in future!

    Hostel is located just a 3 minute walk from Sinchon metro station, and only one station away from Hongdae, which is a trendy part of the city. The shower water was hot and well-pressurised, and the staff - all of them - were very friendly and helpful. The bed was a little firm, but still comfortable and we fell asleep easily enough after long days out. The Wi-Fi and laundry facilities were great. The dryer didn't quite work as effectively as expected, so keep that in mind. The breakfast provided was great - coffee, tea, toast, eggs and peanut butter and jam all were available. Overall a great stay and would choose this hostel again if available.

    the host Eric and his staff are very nice, always smile at me, they are willing to talk to you if you want, and give you space if you don;t want to be disturbed. A very minor imperfect is that the computer is very slow, but it is okay for normal usage. And there is bread and eggs provided all the time, which i personally think that is a big bonus haha You can get all basic things you need from here, i would come again next time!!

    We had a basement room at Chocolate Tree and out of three guesthouses that we stayed in Seoul this was by far the best. The room was very spacious and well-equipped with everything we needed. We could have stayed in this room for a whole week! The kitchen facilties were very clean and made our stay even more comfortable. The staff were fantastic and friendly and helped us print out our train tickets. The hostel is conveniently located a two minute walk from a subway station and you can walk to Hongdae in ten minutes.
