Good location”
Good location, located near the subway. Within walking distance to insadong & jonggak. But owner is practically not in, not suitable for travellers who would like to try korea food delivery service (unless you speak korean). But he is contactable via whatapps. And they have cats, love cats by the way. But not so much of the smell. Cat poops on corridoor and since owner isn't in no one cleans it up. Open the door and it's the first thing that welcomes you! My honest review.

Convenient location with plenty of food options nearby”
It can be rather tricky to locate the hostel at first since it is located along a small street. Host is very accommodating, allowed for early check-in at no extra charge since we arrived around mid-morning. Basic facilities. Convenience store and plenty of food options nearby. Value for money.

It's at Insadong area, walking distance to Metro and night street of Insadong. Not recommended if with elderly people, there is no lift available, need to climb 3 level of stairs for the family room.

It's Good for the money”
It's near the subway but located in a back alleyway. Many stairs including the ones from the subway. Not good if you have heavy luggage. The hallways are also very narrow. The room was not that clean and the toilet paper and toiletries were not refilled. There are cats roaming the premises that are indoor cats and I love cats, but if you have an allergy beware of that as well. The airconditioner had black mold growing inside of it. The bed was normal and the room size was adequate.

amazing stay”
Used this as our base while in Seoul and no regrets. Very close to subway stations, plenty of places to eat nearby and walking distance to tourists areas. Rooms are clean and comfortable, staff is very friendly and accommodating and easy to communicate to in English which is a plus. Would stay here again and would recommend this to fellow budget travelers.

Good accommodation for reasonable price”
The hostel has reasonable price for the room, but the location is somewhat difficult to find. The place is situated behind restaurants and is only accessible thru walking. That's why when we took the taxi from the airport to Seoul, we got lost and can't find it easily, though I forgot to ask regarding that. There's also no problem for very late check-in as they have option of self check-in as long as you inform them beforehand. The staff are approachable and kind. We arrived very late in Seoul (around 2 AM) ,as our flight got delayed, and our taxi could not find the hostel so he called the owner to know where it is; good thing he answered the call immediately and fetch us when we are already nearby the place. Their breakfast is decent, but you have to cook/prepare your own food if you want something to be cooked. As for the room that we booked, it is spacious for the three of us. Also, the bathroom/toilet is spacious to move around. The beds are clean and comfortable.
