      For the price, it is a go for me if you just need a place to sleep. It is directly at the ground exit from the subway which is around 10 minute walk from the train with steep flight of stairs (there is no elevator in the ground exit) Seven Eleven beside the place is very convenient.

      Do not stay. Very rude care taker. Cleanliness is very bad. Can get a better accomodation for this price anywhere for price paid.

      Reviewed May 14, 2019

      First of all I am sorry... that you had bad experience. But seriously I don't remember anything else that I Said that can not give you room at 8 am because last guest still not check out that time. Cause I was busy with fully booked so I couldn't see you until your check out time. and you paid less than 25 USD for one night stay with special promotion. I really have no idea which one you mention for staying 25 USD for twin room, which including private toilet, in this city... So I feel like might be you made wrong reviews to us instead of the other guesthouse. Cause you made this review on May 14th and you was stayed March 28th. And we cleaning every room with seriously using Sodium hypochlorite every corner specially which I cleaned room. If you think about old facility then I can accept it. or when I was in hospital after car accident that time I can understand Whatever If you really wrote this review to us then I feel really sorry what you had bad experience.

      The hostel location is great, it’s right by the subway and all the tourist attractions in the area. The owner also gives great suggestions to bars and things to do in the area. However, the flooring was heated and we had no control over the temperature or the aircon so the room got quite warm during the night. Also, the bed is just a thin mattress on the floor. I slept fine but my friend was a bit uncomfortable as her hips hurt from the hard floor.

      Reviewed April 21, 2019

      Dear Nicole Thank you for your kind and honest review. I fully understand that heating problem and bed problem... The central boiler heating system can not control every room as guest or I want... I really feel so hard for me for control it... cause every guest want temperatures different. But if you notice to me that you want cooler then 26 degree in winter time. Then I will try to place you colder room for you next time. about A/C remote I placed out because a lots of guest turn on the air conditioner during winter and complain to me the room is so cold... because we have only cooling air conditioner.(might be they thought that is both type air conditioner) About bed I will really thank for your mention that... and now we saving money for change our beds in our guesthouse. I think before this 2019 winter I think I can change it. Have a nice day and hope to enjoy your staying in Korea Dongdaemun Inn John

      My friend and I made the right decision when staying in Dongdaemun Inn. The hostel was great. Clean, tidy, a bit small, yes, but very warm and super convenient. Its literally 20 steps walk to subway station, 10 steps to 7-11. Shopping malls are around the area within 5 mins walk. I couldn't ask for more convenient. Host is very nice, friendly and helpful. Very good value for money. Highly recommended!

      Dongdaemun Inn ”

      Located in DDP Stn Line 4 of Exit 4, please bear in mind that you will stumble a lot of stairs (mostly in SK will stumble with stairs & hilly areas so its ok), there is 7eleven & emart24 nearby this gh, airport bus also within 2 minutes & this gh situated exactly beside Toyoko Inn Dongdaemun. Price is affordable, toilet inside the room. For asians, this room quite ok & you may bring 2/3 luggages in size 20.. but if you heavy shopper I think this gh a bit tiny to put your shopping stuffs. The manager John is fluent in English & will always in his counter (🤣🤣 as for my exp, i saw John for 7 days in his counter morning evening & night),you may email him if you have any enquiry. John wake us up during the 1st snow! Tq john Me & my chingu really appreciated that.. ❤️ & yeah you can borrow an umbrella from John, he got a lot of umbrella..

      We stayed here for 8 nights during our Autumn trip. Our room has Wifi, air conditioning, floor heater and a private CR. John (the owner) was so nice and accommodating. He even treated us KTV and we enjoyed it a lot! :) The location is great. It's like literally 30 seconds from the subway, near an airport bus stop and the best thing is being just a few meters away from Dongdaemun Design Plaza. Totally satisfied with the service. We will definitely go back!

      it was indeed such a good stay in Dongdaemun Inn. basically you got what you need for the money you paid for. location is indeed very strategic, very close to Dongdaemun History & Cultural Park station exit 4 (takes only two minutes) just behind the 7eleven. the owner is very friendly, willing to give us direction of the Halal Restaurant nearby which saved us as we were really starving and in need of Halal foods especially RICE! Overall, it was fun-tastic, tho the facilities quite old and the room is abit small but it was all good and great! Huge thanks to the owner! will definitely stay here for our next visit.

      Best place to be in Korea”

      Free and easy, best place to be as it is the almost the centre of seoul, nearest station would be dongdaemun historical park, you would take exit 4 and you will see the 7/11 if you walk straight and you just enter the small walk way and there it is. Also it is close to DDP by walking about 3-4minutes. Alot of shopping malls and food area down there, give it a try believe me, as a front desk in a 2 star myself, i did't expect much for the room, as i only come back to rest and sleep and probably will be out the whole there, the front desk there may seems like not a friendly person, but that guy is the best. speaks english and able to meet my expectation. check in and out wise, honestly that is the fastest timing i've ever seen in my whole life, check in took only less than 2 minutes and check out you just leave the key in a small compartment. I'm coming back for this guest house in my next visit, which probably on september 2018
