        Sparkling clean hostel 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.

        I know it may not be a convincing selling point but I do like the kitchen and enjoyed gathering with friends there with a home-like atmosphere =)

        the room was clean and tidy. the staff was nice and helpful even i arrived and waked him up at 7a.m., i could still check in and take a break before my trip (of course, it depends on the availability of the rooms). good place to stay if your purpose of traveling is to relax instead of intensive shopping and sightseeing as it is not close to most of the spots.

If you do get a room outside the main area, you might not able to get the wifi connection. Otherwise it is reasonable place to stay.

        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.

Observe the left house at the corner house no. 13 then turn right. The 3 blocks are counted from the right road from first, and a half block, then second block, then third block. It's not showed as "Hwalteo-gil" on the road but it's Muk.. ro gil 2 or 4 or 6 ..road, so easy to get lost even it's so close with Sang Wang Shim Ni station but the direction should be more clear. This time I make mistake on booking this hotel follow by good comments but no more second chance. Bye Bye forever 2C house. This price is not cheap compared to room size (Very small 3 m^2) not provide breakfast. Many guesthouse cheaper than this place but provide good facilities and easy to find. The good is only free phone, laundry and towel set. Lounge is very cold in winter.

Kitchen is quite spacious although we would have wanted free breakfast. Location is also good as it is quite near to the subway station and very near convenience stores and restaurants. The hostel however is called Dongdaemun but it's not really in Dongdaemun and the nearest subway station is Wangsimni (Green Line).

        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.
