              Decent place to stay”
              The location is ideal to get to know the "real Seoul" people. It's within short walking distance of the metro and buses. There are plenty of eateries both local and Western/European style on the same street or down the street from the inn. The value for me at JC Inn was the washing machine located on the first floor; this allowed me to pack lightly and wash my clothes as needed. I booked ahead of time via Agoda so I didn't have trouble communicating with the staff there. However, be forewarned, if you're looking for small talk, the staff members that I interacted with only know a couple words in English. The room I stayed in had AC (thankfully), and a flat screen tv. It was just large enough to fit a full size bed and a private bathroom (no bathtub, just a drain in the floor with a handheld showerhead). The complimentary breakfast is a bit sparse for my taste; bread and butter and orange juice. Not to worry, there is a convenience store caddy corner from the inn which has suitable breakfast/to go items.

              Room, TV
              The surroundings is full of restaurants and you can choose 2-3 MRT subway stations. But I would have preferred pay a little bit more for better conditions. The staff didn't know English but they try you to be comfortable during your stay. The heater was an electric air-con which is too noisy and the window not too big. The breakfast is quite poor with some toasts, butter and jam and instant coffee and tea.

In my eyes upranking to 2 stars and a grade of 8,0! I can just recommend this motel/hostel!

              Rooms are not clean everyday however, it is not major issue because from the price, you roughly know the standard. It is without lift and you can have free cloths washing using their common washing machine. An old lady (i believe is the owner) trying her best to help me out and understand what i need from her. Suggest you use a translator app to ease your communication.

              the mattress was too stiff for me. There was no passenger lift. Although the aunt at the reception was attentive to you, she could not speak much English. Overall, you will get what you paid for. I prefer to try another place next time.

              I booked for 2 rooms. I got smaller double room but my sister got bigger double room. The room is pretty warm but warm water for shower is not strong (only hot water for 1 minute after that back to cold). I was there at spring so it's okay, but not recommended for winter. Breakfast is included but only plain bread n strawberry jam (get bored if stay for 6days). OUR ROOM WAS NEVER CLEANED eventhough we stay for 6 days. Waste bin in our room n bathroom was never emptied, bedsheet never changed. Pretty dissapointed about that. Trying to say about it but the staff can't speak english.
