I had a great stay. I will definitely recommend”

good location, near subway and bus stops, very accomodating owner

I had a great stay in Dongdaemun. At first we had a hard time locating as this is situated near residential areas with small "2C House" tag outside the house. We were actually looking for "Dongdaemun 2C house Hostel". There is no personnel assigned at the reception during night time but the owner is very kind and accomodating which I find as a plus. You can always call the owner for questions as his number is posted on 2 phone stations within the house. We find the facilities very homey. We even cooked our breakfast (sometimes dinner)and used the dining facilities which includes complete kitchen utilities. Drinking water is also free of charge. I asked the owner where can I buy carton box to put our additional stuff and he gave me one, that's very thoughtful of him. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

Clean and convenience. Near to Sangwangsimni Subway station

1. i was there from 29 to 31 july 2011. 2. to reach the hostel, get out from exit 3 at sangwangsimni subway station. walk straight when you are on the road. after passing the block on your left of that road, immediately turn left. look up that you should see the church (meaning you are on the right junction). walk straight down the hill passing 3 blocks of building on your rihgt (this walk should be around 250-300 meters). turn right at after this 3 blocks (this junction is before the next junction with car workshop). after you turn right, walk 50 meters and dongdaemun 2c house hostel is on your left. email me so that i can attache a map for you. regards daniel

Great hostel”

It was not so expensive and clean, with everything you need in the room - a fridge, a TV, free wi-fi and an air conditioner

i stayed there for 2 weeks and lived alone in a room for 2 persons, there are no single rooms in this hostel. that is why it was not very cheap for me, but generally the price is not so high, and the hostel is really nice. the bathroom is clean and there is everything you need, including towels and hairdryer. in the kithen which is on the ground floor there is everything for cooking or drinking tea, and there is also a laundry, a computer and a telephone. the territory of the hostel is green and beautiful. and the host is a very kind and hospitable person who speaks english. the 2c house is located not far from the center of the city, between wangsimni and sangwangsimni stations, which is really convenient for sightseeing.

I have stayed in Dongdaemun 2C House Hostel before so this is my second time staying there. The room is small but clean. I especially like the thick and big white towels.There is a C U minimart nearby.It is easy to come here by subway from the airport-transfer at Hongik University station to Sangwansimni.There is an elevator to ground level. From there it is not far to walk to Dongdaemun 2C.

Great hostel but small room”

location is very center & very near to subway station

hostel is located around Dongdaemun area & just a few minutes walking from Sanwangsimni subway Station and can be easily found, based on the map provided by Agoda, so very good as a base to explore Seoul. Room is neat & clean with a floor heating system which work very well; but mind you, the hostel & the room is very small, so basically you can only sleep in the room and nothing else WIFI is good and kitchen can be used for 24hrs; check in time sb from 8am-7pm as Jason is not living in the same premise, although he can be easily contacted thru the phone before the door. I think this should be emphasized during booking to avoid any inconvenience.

Low Price but Great Hostel with Great Location”

Nice owner who can speak good English, the hostel is located near the subway and the room is clean with all facilitates that a traveler needs

The owner is nice and can speak English. The hostel is located near the subway, so we only need to walk abt 5 mins from hostel to subway and vice versa. The room is clean and includes 1) tower 2) hair shampoo 3) soap 4)hair dryer 5) hangers 6)tooth paste 7)slippers which suit our need already. The hostel also includes a basement where the guests can cook or microwave the food and there is a drinking water supply of both cool and hot water. I am extremely satisfied with this hostel by having this low price but great quality and service! I must book this hostel again when I go to Seoul next time!

Strategic location, clean, value for money

Room is small but the hotel is strategically located in Seoul - whether you are going to Dongdaemun, MyeongDong, Seoul Tower, Hongik University, or even the Nami Island. Many good restaurant are within walking distance. So don't worry about the food-searching hassle. Owner, Jason is friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend to my friends.

From Incheon airport, stop at Hongik Univ, then transfer to Line 2 to get to Sangwangsimni, the get out at Exit 3. Walk forward until you reach junction, turn left, then walk forward, pass 4-junction, then pass 3-junction, walk until reach the 3rd junction, turn right, then walk forward until you see the 2C House signboard on your left. Good luck.

Great location but small rooms”

Everything is provided in 2C House Hostel. The room we stayed was really nice. We don't need to on the air-con, just open the window then we can feel the coldness. The key of each room is the only one so it is very safe and don't need to worry that someone else will go into your room as long as you have locked your door. The owner served with a smilling great manner. He is a very nice person and he also shows us the place where we can get cheap and nice food.

it was a very nice stay! i love 2c hostel because it is very near to the subway station and also to the convenience shop and the restaurants. although the room is small, but it is more than enough for 2 person stay.

2C House is very nice, especially the boss, he is always helpful at any time and anywhere. Although sometimes we have difficulty in communication (i.e. mild English), we feel very comfortable in staying in 2C House. Next time if I visit Seoul central, I will choose 2C House again :)

A comfy and heart-warming stay

We got lost in Sangwangsimni and walked all the way to Wangsimni on the day we checked-in. At last we called Jacob and he was so nice to pick us up with his car and taught us how to get to the hostel from metro station (he speaks fluent English). It's just a 3-minute walk from the station! The room was a little bit small with simple furniture; with very well wifi reception even inside our room. Laundry/ computer/ phone/ microwave oven/ tissue rolls. etc are available in the basement. Lastly, the housekeeper was very helpful during our stay. I would recommend this hostel to budget travelers given its convenient location and relatively low price.

Sparkling clean hostel ”

Convenient location

a very helpful man, came to the street to look for us. We were late due to delays at the immigration. The room is small with no cabinet but equipped with an attached washroom, queen bed, fridge and a TV. Quests have access to other shared facilities in the small basement area: a kitchen for light cooking, light reading materials, free local calls and internet, and laundry machine and dryer with washing liquid at W4k. Located in a remote residential area about 5 minutes walk from the nearest Sang-Wangsimni metro green line 2 but safe environment with easy access to 2 convenient stores and a food street with plenty of restaurants about 3 minutes walk. At night the narrow streets are quiet and very dark. Drivers are however cautiou. To my greatest surprise, I would rate the cleanliness a star above 5-star hotel. The hostel has about 12 rooms on a double story property with CCTVs. This is the best 2 or 3 star accommodation we had ever stayed in. Guests access into the property is via a secret code.

Cheap, homely and convenient location

A basic little hostel. The double room has en-suite bathroom, tv and free wifi. U change your own towels and the pantry - with microwave, oven, filtered hot & cold water - has all the conveniences a budget traveller needs. A mini family mart is just a few steps away. Train station sangwangsimni is a 5 min walk away. The owner is friendly and helpful. Although he doesnt stay at the hostel (he leaves about 7-8pm), he even came back past midnight to change a lightbulb that had blown. The coin-operated washer and drier was very useful. 2 train stops away from dongdaemon shopping area.
