Good location”
It was my second stay in that hostel. Known the facilities provided such as kitchen. Its near to the exit 4 Dongdaemun History and Culture park which is convenient. There is a elevator but slightly further away from the hostel But the hostel itself doesn't has elevator provided which is abit turn off for traveler with heavy luggages. The room is small, might be unsuitable for someone who are tall and huge. I got the best price when I booked the place for 5 nights. i'll definitely stay there again if the price is what I got before. if no promotion price, you might better think again. overall it was awesome stay for me. looking foward for next stay maybe. :)

Not worth for a 5 night in winter”
location, convenient store, near the subway
The manager and the staff was great but when I needed them, they're not available and worst, I have to call their mobile number. The room itself is very small and basic although I like that it has a TV with Cable and a refrigerator. It's a winter season and even though they ask me just to close the window, still it is cold. there is no heater at all and sadly, I had colds and fever when I left Seoul. I have to ease the pain for having a cold night and the blanket was really small for a 5'9ft tall which I have to bend my knees. It is a no frill hotel which I don't mind but at least, they should improve their heater. Another thing was that it has hot water, only if you'll use the shower. But if you use the sink itself, it's really cod that I cannot tolerate the numbness. I tried booking for another hotel sadly, but I thought I'll just bare with it. Would never choose this hostel ever again despite of its good location. The room is a single room but you feel like you rented a capsule hotel. Good thing it has a toilet inside but really, the toilet itself is beside your bed. There was no elevator at all and to my surprise, the reception area was on the 3rd floor. My room was on the 5th floor. Information on agoda seem to be incomplete. There was no breakfast at all even they publish that breakfast is complementary. I regret staying here. There's no control on the heater. It was centralize and the heat comes from the flooring and can only feel that there's a heater during midnight but for how many hours only. Sorry, but I cannot say, "you get what you've paid for". Get yourself a better hotel in Myeong Dong area. My fault, I should have chosen a better hostel for the same price.

Korea in a week”
Location - Price - Staff
I had time to enjoy plenty of most important city due to how close I was. I was able to walk 3 large and popular place such as Myongdong, Jongno and Seoul (City Hall), oh! and for sure, Dongdaemun. If I wanted to go further, I had the bus at 30 secondes from the hotel or the metro (about the same distance). Whenever I had an issue, I simply had to see or call the one of the staff and they would take care of it as soon as possible. I do have to say that breakfast is a big no for me. I appreciate how they purchased bread and made sure there's enough of it for everyone but there was nothing to put on it. No butter nor any other things to put on your toast. I did saw empty bottles of jam hahaha. It wasn't a big deal, that day I ate just the toast as it is. Since there's a 7eleven right next door, you can buy soups for 800 wons (less than 1$). Overall, this hotel is great, good price for an amazing location. If you don't see anyone at the reception, don't panic. There's a home phone right next to the window and they answer pretty fast. Enjoy your trip!

Disappointment”
location, not too expensive
When I came, they told me they have no room for me even though I had a confirmed reservation. They moved me to a house just next door (Dongdeamun Inn) which has the same owner. The room was very small and had absolutely nothing inside except a filthy mattress on the floor and a bunk bed over it. No other piece of furniture. I got no bed-clothes, just a paper-thin blanket. It was very very cold in the night. The reception was empty almost all the time. They put a phone number there to call if one needs a receptionist but nobody ever answered the phone. The breakfast was supposed to be included in the price but there was no breakfest. The owner bought a loaf of toast bread once in three days and nothing more. He said I could eat other food in the kitchen but there were only leftovers after other travellers, most of them months after expiry date and disgusting. Otherwise the room was ok, reasonably clean (except for the mattress) and there was always warm water in the shower. The location of the hotel is good - subway station.

directly in front of subway exit, near convenient stores & major attractions
great for people who just want a place to sleep. Booked a single room but was upgraded to a bunk room because someone else took my room. But since I don't have to pay extras, no complains there. The only thing is that there is no window in room. I woke at at 11am thinking it is still night time.
