The location was super! Just a few meters from dongmyo station. The heater in our CR was a little inconsistent. Would heat up really fast. Other than that, staff was super helpful and friendly. Thank you!!

Very helpful & friendly service which makes you feel warm! The only thing not satisfied are on the toilet size which was a bit small and poor sound proofing. Overall the environment is really cozy and comfortable.

    Budget friendly hostel with accommodating and English speaking staff. Breakfast food items (bread, eggs, noodles, etc) are free and are always available. There is a defined time for cooking in the common kitchen area but our room was upgraded to a room with cooking and laundry facilities so we can bring the free breakfast items to our room and do the cooking anytime. The location is in a quiet neighborhood. There was no elevator in the new building but the staff helped us with our luggage. There is access to train and airport bus, around 5-7 minutes of walking. Reception area is unmanned after 11pm but a telephone and contact details were provided. We found a new friend in Nadia, one of the staff. She was very kind, helpful and showed heartfelt concern. Thank you Nadia.

    Helpful happy service, home away from home”
    Nadia, Moon, Ed and Song were so helpful during our stay, especially when I needed to change floor (was Travelling with an elderly Mother who couldn't climb stairs, they immediately found a lower floor for us). If you're Travelling with heavy bags bear in mind there's no lift, & when our taxi was 1 hour late Song waited with us and helped us chase him up the entire time. There's a couple of really great local restaurants across the road which are heap as chips and delicious. Rooms are warm and spotless, laundry and breakfast is free. Only suggestion I have is to include mattress toppers as the beds were quite hard, and provide some bigger towels as international guests often use bath towels after their shower.

    -Very nice room and small enough to stay in Seoul - Moon/Son were very friendly and made us to feel like at home, but another front guy was not. We needed to cook something for late dinner but he turned off the light in the kitchen and cold face like a police man, I really didnt care but made me feel uncomfortable in his shift. -Should recommend for my Vietnamese to stay here next time Thanks Moon, thanks Son and all. Have a good day and keep Vanilla like current good state.

    The place is a three minute walk from the station exit, has a grocery store nearby as well as many restaurants(chicken&beer, pizza, icecream, etc). The staff is very helpful and welcoming. There is free laundry service, which was unexpected, they even fold it for you. We will be back for sure when visit Seoul again in the future.

    非常好的住宿經驗”
    Hostel Vanilla was the best hostel that I’ve ever stayed! The staff are nice and helpful, they helped us whenever we have problems. Breakfast was free, coffee, tea, noodles, eggs, were free to use. The interior design was cozy, they provided guests with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, towel, dressing perfume, hair dryer, almost every thing that you’ll need. They also have a scale for guests to weight their luggage in the common area. The location was great, 3 mins walking distance to metro line 1 and bus station. There were buses to and from Incheon airport. I really love this hostel which really made me feel stay home away home, I will definitely stay here again next time when I go to Seoul. Thank you for giving me a great hostel experience !
