"This is our first time visiting south korea and although we have friends living here we opted to rent a room near the city. For a very affordable price the place is very clean, the breakfast is good and the best part is the staffs are accommodating plus it's open 24hours a day. The place is near to myeongdong station and right after you leave the hostel you are already in the famous myeongdong shopping street. We can't wait to go back and hopefully there are still rooms available for us to stay in! If you want an affordable stay inn hotel go try this one out, it will not disappoint you. More power to the crew! Ps. lucky enough that our room has a view of the Nseoul tower and myeongodong cathedral"

"The room is tiny (like any hotel in this price range in Seoul)... however, it's fabulously clean and comes with a window in every room. That's IMPORTANT... I stayed in Seoul hotels without a window and it's disasterous for me. The hotel is on top of a hill, and you need to push your luggage up that hill... it can be a little challenging for some, I think it should be fine for most. It has two washers, free coffee, filtered water, juice, refrigerator in room and in basement, two desktops, and tables... and even a cooking area. Wonderful hotel!"

"I went to Korea last summer and had a great time staying in STEP INN. It's very clean, cozy with friendly staff who gave me recommendation of a local hair salon when I asked for it:) The location is in the center of Myeongdong and super easy to shop and go around by train. I remember I even cancelled my bookings for another hotel and continued staying here when I came back to Seoul from Bishan due to its great location near the airport shuttle bus stop. Other than that, I also happened to bump into MonstaX's mini concert near the hostel in Myeongdong on my first day staying there, walking down the street in the morning... The only drawbacks for some might be the room can be quite small. But I like cozy rooms! I feel it's good for solo travelers or students."

"I frequently travel to South Korea and ave stayed at a variety of hotels. The Royal hotel is an excellent choice for staying in Seoul. It is located in the heart of Myeong-Dong, the city centre of Seoul. The hotel can easily be reached from the airport with Airport bus 6015 (10,000 KRW or 11 USD - exit at Eulji-ro ipgu). The bus travel takes about 1 hr and tickets are available in the boots near the bus stops just outside the arrival teerminal. Staff speaks English and credit cards are accepted. Avoid bus 6001, which comes to Eulji-ro ipgu as well, but is more expensive and takes 30 minutes more. Traveling by airport limousine bus is by far the best way to get from the airport to hotels. The rooms in the hotel are small, but clean and fully equipped. I found the room comfortable and enjoyed my stay. There are two subway stations near on 2 different lines. It is easy to reach most part of the city quick. The level of English in Korea has increased since 6 years ago when I first traveled. Although Itaewon district is still to be considered the place where foreigners can easily find their way, I find that Myong-Dong has caught up and many Koreans can speak a bit English here too. Excellent hotel at reasonable price. Following western system of stars for hotels I'd say 3+ stars, close to 4-star hotel. "

"Considering the amount of cash we shelled out, Seoul Backpackers Hostel is fantastic! It is located very close to the train station and is walking distance to Namdemun market. The staff speak good English and are always very helpful. The rooms are very clean and they replace towels (small sized though) everyday. If you wont be spending most of your time in the hotel, Seoul Backpackers Hostel is perfect. The only downsides are the breakfast menu consist of noodles, coffee, bread and jam (carbo loading!) and the TV only has Korean shows. There is a convenient store nearby as well. Overall, Id go back to this hotel if I were to go back to Korea, but perhaps stay in central Myeongdong (they have lots of branches)."
