Good enough”
The first day I was like I wanna run away and find another hotel nearby hahahaha.. I was kinda shocked that people were having a party around 12 am. There was no attendant around and guests were drinking. One of the guests talk to me and help me out going to my room. There were 4 of us in the room and everyone's asleep already. However, it turns out to be a good place to stay, why? As a Solo traveller very cheap room rate indeed. The room is clean. Subway is very very close. My entire vacation was hectic so I don't stay that much at the guest house. If you like to drink and smoke they have it downstairs. You can cook and do your laundry also. There is resto nearby and convenient store. Very accessible place. For me, it was worth it haha... I wish I have stayed longer and mingle with the guests. They were nice people anyways.

I have stayed in Kimchee for so many times and it's getting worse and worse”
Under my observation, I learnt that they would only change the pillowcase and sheet but not the blanket. Also, the shower head broke; some shower areas weren't user friendly, some of them , spacewise not enough to turn; shower curtains were so dirty. The safety device on the upper bed wasn't secure to bed so whoever tried to get to upper bed was taking a risk of falling off. The bunk bed were much too light and they could turn over easily when somebody try to get to upper bed. The travellers and those 'work for bed' staff doesn't keep the kitchen clean. So hard for the management

Low sleeping quality”
The front desk speaks fluent English and expain rules clearly. The mosquitos beated me badly at night. I also saw cockcroach near bathroom. My room was facing the street. The noisy and mosquitos are what woke me up from time to time. The price is great for what they have anyway. (Free towel, flip flop, and convenient location)

Nice experience but outfashioned infrastructure ”
Really nice time here thanks to people met. Nice staff always present and pleasant. Good location literally 50 meters from the subway with all major sightseeings easily accessible. Negative points are on the overall aspect of the hostel which would need to be refreshed, beds structure were falling apart and cleanliness was approximative, both in the rooms and shared parts. That being said it’s still good value for money and and good memories with people met there

Very good location. Hate the shower room!”
Very near to Chungjeongno Station (exit 3), this is the most important thing. The toilet & shower room is very clean. But I don't really like how they set-up the shower room. It is a small space with only shower curtain separated you from other people. Talking bout privacy, right! They have locker/luggage storage for each guest with keypad password. Big enough for my 60 litre backpack. The room is quite big for 6 persons. The bed is comfortable. They don't have elevator, only stairs. They have kitchen with refrigerator & large common area. I think this place is quite popular among foreign tourists because I saw a lot of them here in this hotel. From here it is very easy to go to other tourist attractions. Just take the subway & bus. You can also walk to Seoullo 7017, Namdaemun Market & Myeongdong Street Market.

Small room, filled with dust, inconvenient place for Muslims ”
Easy to find the property if u arrive from Incheon airport. The room we booked (Quadruple) did not fit for 4 people. Tiny space to store our luggages, although the toilet is ok! The room looked like it has never been cleaned. Our bed sheets were filled with dust! If you try to move your bed, you'll see much leftovers and dust on the edge of the bed. Although they provide a sharing cooking place but it's hard to differentiate cooking pots for Muslims! Some staffs weren't very friendly thus we didn't really connect with anyone in this place. Good thing is, this place is convenient to other parts of the city, near to subway station and bus station. Also, 24hr store.
