single room on your own, near to dondamuen, clean
The staffs is friendly. This is just an okay guesthouse for me because i don't like the location and it's far away from subway. for the first day it took me almost 1 hour to find this guesthouse because it's behind in some alley. The room is small with a TV and fast internet. It's good enough for me because i can be alone on myself. I think the bed is too short because it's just nicely fit me well as i'm 5'2, i think if you are taller than me you can't sleep on the bed. overall it's ok for me but just it's hard to find.

It's was quite hard to find because its located in very small alley you might have not notice the sign, but locations around there are fully covered with entertainment shopping historic area n close to city hall subway the map of their guesthouse isn't that clear I will prefer taxi from airport to them is way more easier or a bus from airportn drop u at the bus stop in front of the Mary n u just cross the street walk a little n get there

I WAS NOT A NO SHOw”
I indicated that I will check in at 10-11pm on that day. When I went there the man in the front desk told me that he cancelled my booking because there was a problem with my card. So where was I supposed to go in the middle of the night? I arrived just past 10 and was given the bad news. I had to sleep in a very uncomfortable sauna because I couldn't find any place to stay because it was already late. All the while I was confident that I had a place to stay but I guess I can't even trust a confirmed booking from you guys. What a disappointment.

Weekend in Seoul”
Was left to book at this hostel as I really needed to be in the Myeongdong area. The location of this hostel was nice; not too far from the main tourist sites. However, for the price I paid, I was disappointed. I was given a really small room (big enough for the bed only). I have stayed at other places in Seoul, which had bigger rooms / better facilities. There were only 2 showers for the entire building.

Cheap, language, location
Personally, I like this place, since the location is pretty good, ten mins away from myeongdong. Both two staffs speak English and some Chinese. Breakfast is given in morning, but I've never tried. Leave this place, within 3 mins, you can find good Korean food, convenience shops, bus stop, local market, and any thing you need. Highly recommended.

The Room was very small, but it fits the price. Easy access to subway and airport bus, as well as shopping spots. I dont mind about the small room or tv, but the very small bath room caused me a lot of problems every morning.

Clean room, friendly staff, centrally located.
My stay was good. The hostel staff was very friendly and helpful. They will even chit chat with you and tell you more about the korean culture. The location was centralized too, very near to Myeong Dong shopping area. However, for first timers there, it might be a bit difficult for them to find the hostel as it is in an alley. But nonetheless, it was a good stay!

Very friendly”
Location, staff and location&staff
First of all, I'd like to thank the owner of ETG and his team for them being incredibly friendly to me and my friends. They are very talkative and funny and it seems they can answer any question you ask them. I booked the single room initially, but the owner kindly changed it to a twin room, so I've been living in a bank-bed room for 5 nights. All in all, I enjoyed my stay in this guesthouse. They allowed my newly arrived friend to stay in my room for 1 night (that is why the single room had been changed to a twin one without upcost). A week after my check-out we returned as a group of three people, and they allowed us to leave our luggage in the room my another friend booked for her and let us stay in the dining room to chat with each other while the two of us had been waiting for our departure to the airport in the evening. As for room, I can say that it may appear a bit small for a not so tiny people like me and my friends, but the beds were surprisingly long and comfortable. Private shower was okay and hot. And free Wi-Fi was a plus, of course. The location is great, really. There are various restaurants and coffee-shops nearby. 7-10 minutes to Lotte Department Store, Myeong-dong shopping area/metro station, City Hall station, Namsan tower. 5 minutes to Namdaemun market and metro station. And only 2 minutes to the airport limousine bus stop (6015). Highly recommended!

Not a good place to stay”
Rate, location, can't think of more.
Very hard to find this little hostel, taxi driver did not know so had to walk and ask after he dropped me off. Pictures on agoda is not relevant to the actual rooms, only a small narrow bed and a desk with a fan. Shared bathroom and shower, towel too small to use for body. Staff looked tired and did not do anything to improve my stay, at least I was allowed to check in early. Do not book unless you are a real backpacker on a very tight budget.

I think this hotel is a very good place to stay for some days if you just want to be out abnd visit Korea. The service is good, but the rooms are really really small. However the kitchen is a good place for meeting new people and making good friends. The breakfast, although just some toasts, coffee and juice isn't bad since you can take it anytime

a stayed for a saturday night to visit a friend who recently came to korea. you might miss the entrance since it's down a small alley if you're not paying attention, but it's a 2-min walk to myeongdong and easy to return to if you tell a taxi driver "hanguk eunhaeng" after a night out in hongdae or gangnam. the room was tiny but clean and provided a towel, toothbrush, and toothpaste. the wifi wasn't working properly when i was there, so that was a downside, but they did have a computer in the lounge in the main building along with coffee and a washing machine.

Small, but very nice!”
Placed in the middle of Seoul (10 min walk to N Tower), 3 subway stations nearby, airport limousine station is 2-3 minutes walk, nice and friendly staff, small but cozy room, quite clean everywhere in the guesthouse
the guesthouse is placed in a very good place: namdaemun market is on the other side of the road, myeongdong is 5 minutes walk, three subway stations nearby, and seoul n tower is 10 minutes walk! guesthouse itself is very small, so if you are tall, better not to choose it. but rooms are cozy, all you need is there (even the fridge in the room), and public bathrooms are always free, it doesn't bother on the second day. the staff is friendly, no problems with communication. i enjoyed staying there for 14 days and will choose it next time as well!

Very good value for money for the location
Guesthouse was located just off the main road. Staff were friendly when we checked-in. The room was extremely small. It can be quite inconvenient for a longer stay or if you have lots of items and baggage. Bathroom was incredibly small and can be a challenge for some. Other then room size everything else was pleasant. WIFI and LAN connection in room definitely lives up to South Korea's reputation of having one of the worlds fastest broadband. Guesthouse provides free DIY laundry. Being located in Myeongdong, there is heaps of places to eat and shop within walking distance. The skygarden food court in Shinsegae is recommended, market area and street food provided great eating at very reasonable prices. Subway is located nearby so you have easy access to the rest of Seoul.
