Nice host, good price but the room isn't clean. Good site, there is a supermarket next to the hostel and GS25 across the street. Hostel is near the subway, walk around 3 minutes. If I travel in Korea again, I'll stay here :))

    The Istay hostel is very good for me. I spent not much money to stay here and the Location is near by the subway. I think It's awesome for traveler who want to save money and save energy because you can walk not over 10 minutes to the hostel. It's not far from the subway station!

    Good price and good location”
    The room is quite spacious and the beds are nice. Most hotel policies are given when we arrived at the hotel, but unfortunately some policies weren't written so we need to ask again. The reception operating time is short so make sure to add the admin on other chatting application if you are outside the hostel or can't meet the staff during their work hours. The facilities are good and i think this hotel has a good price. The location is not far from bus stop and subway station, and good for all of you who didnt like to stay in a too crowded society. After all I have a good time staying there

    1. Walking distance to subway but not very close, especially with heavy luggages was not convenience at all 2. Lotte supermarket was next building to the hostel which open until 11pm, very convenience! 3. Night time not crowded and very quiet; personally prefer crowded area (night market life) 4. Facilties - the shared kitchen was locked after their working hours, we not able to refill our water and bought from lotte 5. Towel - each person entitle to get one small towel, when go for exchange they just provide big towel 6. Air-conditioner - not function well - a while cold, while warm 7. Food - nearby got one shop selling 9,000 Korea won fried chicken, recommended! Taste good and good owner and staff!! 8. Staff - helpful when we want to check in; help us to carry our heavy luggage to 3rd floor and allow us to keep our luggage as we reach before check in time 9. Room was clean Overall: I wouldn't visit / recommend for my next stay.
