    Location is in myeongdong shopping area. Accessible for subway. Recommended for a short stay. Breakfast is just a bread, egg, cereals, milk and juice. Do not have a consideration in terms of late check out. Staff is very unfriendly. I cannot recommended this hostel for a family.

    Worth every cent you paid for!!”

    It's my first time travelling to Seoul with my friend so I was a bit worry abt our hostel. But it turns out that it is a very nice place to stay during our 6-days vacation. -Location: You can find the hostel easily from Myeongdong exit 6. We went out everynight trying different food vendors of Myeongdong and buy lots of cosmetics stuff. From Myeongdong, you can catch a bus to Namsan tower or go to Dongdaemun or Namdaemun within 10'. However, be consider if you carry heavy luggages from airport to the hostel -Room: The hostel room is actually quite small but it's ok since we go out most of the time. But they manage to build a bathroom inside the room which made it more convenient than other hostels. On our 1st day, the heater is so hot that we can't sleep even though it's cold outside. Luckily they turn off the heater after that day lol -Staff: Very friendly and they're willing to help you all the time. The guy wear glasses is so nice and young (I can't believe he's 28y)

    Located at the heart of Myeongdong's shopping district & nearby public transport about 5mins on foot. There's small supermarket under hostel. It's very convenient. Rooms was clean & tiny but small bath rooms & there's some problem with water heaters. we use cold water on 1st day.. Simple breakfast is provided(If the breakfast time more early it could be more better) Washing machine is out of order. Staffs there are all friendly and helpful, thank you Emily & Brandon for your good service.

    Everything was so fine and great. Staffs there are all friendly and helpful, thank you Emily for your good service. As the washing machine and the oven is in Korean language, we don't know how to use, but the staff is so friendly to help out. Good location, 5 mins walk from myeongdong station exit 6 and there is a convenient store just downstairs of this hotel, whoever want to shop at myeondong, can consider stay here. Breakfast is just sweet and simple. However, wifi connectivity is not so good, but it doesn't matter for me as I bought sim card. Bathroom may too small but is ok.

    It is a great place to stay at is is located at the heart of the most hype place, MyeongDong. If you like to shop, this place is definitely for you. Breakfast provided every morning. If you plan to check out earlier than 8am, you will just have to leave your key cards on their desk. It ain't a big deal thou. Their staff is friendly and helpful. We wanted fried chicken delivery and they assist us on that since we can't speak korean. It was a great stay at their hostel.

    + Good location. Near Myeongdong station. The staff, Hyemi and the guy (forgot to ask his name) are helpful. Free drinking water so that saved us korean won money. I like the breakfast (DIY), especially their milk. - Room is a bit small but it's okay. It's Winter when we went so we brought large luggages and there's a little challenge moving around the room. Overall, we had a good stay. Will surely book this hostel again the next time I go back in South Korea. Thanks!

    I choose to stay here when I came back from other countries in South Korea. but for my second time, it not so nice as I thought. I have to deal with receptionist who not friendly. next, my room is very very very dirty especially in the bathroom. it a lot of "fungus" in my bathroom (like it never clean before). and the breakfast, I think it's not good to be served anymore. I try to drink a juice and the milk, but I think it not good to drink anymore. so I decided to drink a water instead. but, the location is very good if you want to stay here. it is very close with the shopping location and the food market.

    Excellent location”

    We had a nice stay but it was a bit cold on the first day. The room size was just right for us and our stuff but if you have big luggages, it might be small unless it doesn’t bother you much. Location was definitely excellent, within Myeong-dong shopping street and a walking distance from the train station and the airport bus stop. Wifi connection was good. Among the hostel we stayed in Korea, their breakfast includes of raw eggs which you can cook however you want. Bathroom was nice. And although this doesn’t bother me much, the shower curtain should probably get changed. That’s the only suggestion I would suggest here. Overall stay was good and convenient. Will probably book here again.
