I would recommend these hostel. The staff there is helpful and also they can communicate with your with Koreans, Chinese and English. Value for money.
CHIN from Malaysia
Family with teens
The average scoring was 7.5 marks for this hostel, but I would give 9, or even higher. The undesirable aspects were perhaps as previous guests had mentioned, the bath-room was too small, and bathing would make the toilet all wet. All other aspects were so satisfactory.
Ricky from Hong Kong

Very close to bus and metro stations. Quite neighbourhood. Nice people are working and can speak English. Personal rooms are nice. Free breakfast and you can cook in the kitchen your own food.

    Excellent quality for the price. The area is quiet, though a bit far away from some of the tourist sites. If you are comfortable learning and using the bus and rail lines, it's just fine. There were a few places the cleaning could be a bit improved; there was a bit of dirt under the toilet rim and some rust rings in the toilet, but nothing I felt was harmful or disgusting. Single private room is large.

    Nice Place, Very Clean, Location Convenient”
    Location is very near the subway station just a few minutes walk. There are convenient stores around if ever you get hungry. There are diners near the place so it's very convenient. There's an ATM near the subway if you need to get money. You just have to check your itinerary if the place is central to the places that you're going to visit.

    Great place in Seoul”
    I had an amazing time in Korea. I like this hostel. I made my breakfast in the morning. Host was nice ^^ Time to make breakfast during 8am - 10:30am. The hostel prepared lots of things for breakfast: Milk, tea, Bread, eggs, butter, juice.. or something like that. I traveled in the winter so the room was warm. Next year if I travel to Korea again, I will still choose this hostel. Thanks so much

    Horrible Place! The worst guest house that we've stayed.”
    We arrived early afternoon from Busan. When we checked in the reception is dirty. Our room is not tidy, dust in the floor, window sill, the small refrigerator stinks. Have this feeling that the pillow cover and bed sheet are "RECYCLED". We complained that the AC is not working. ''Twas summer in Korea, temperature is 31 Celsius. The owner told us he is still cleaning the AC and it will be ok by 3pm. We toured Seoul till evening, when we came back, to our surprise the AC is still off and our room is so warm. We complained again, the owner said he is still in the process of turning on the COMPUTERIZED system. After 30 min nothing happened. I went down again, now he told us that the AC has Automatic system that it will cool when our room is warm. OUR ROOM IS SO WARM, why the AC has not turned on? HE OPENED the glass window and turned on the FAN. OMG! We feel so cheated,paid 2 nights.Common TOILET & bath is dirty. BEDBUGS under the bed. We transferred to PRINCE hotel the next day.

    A completely average place to stay”
    I would consider all this hostel completely average. Pros include that it's close to a train station, has hot showers, and free laundry. Cons are that the bathrooms felt grimy, the free breakfast was toast and jam with barely any fruit at all, the wifi hardly worked in the rooms, and the staff weren't particularly available. It was not a social Hostel if you're looking to make friends. It was not a bad place to stay, but not a place I loved.

    The groundfloor is kind of chaotic. It's like a garage turned lobby. Anyway, the room is small but with the price it's already a good value. Kitchen is small too they provide coffee and banana for breakfast. There's a laundry area where you could use for free.

    I loveee this hostel!!”
    So I went to Korea during the Christmas holiday last year and stayed here. I'll have to say that my first impression of the hostel at was not very good but the staff there is super nice!!! They were funny and I remember cooking jjajangmyeon wrong lol but the staff was there having a meal on the same table with us guests and he fixed the jjajangmyeon for us and he spoke Korean to us so we could learn Korean so it was soooo much fun!! You can ask them to order food for you too! The room are small but I still feel very comfortable and warm being there:) And it's super easy to travel from place to place too since the "Dongmyo" subway station is very close. If you want to travel comfortably I recommend taking 6002 bus from the airport it'll stop super close to the hostel:) And yes, you can go to Airport from the same station too, it'll say "airport bus" or something like that. It's 10000₩ I really miss this place!! Will definitely stay here again!!
