I have asked the manager and he already knew there is problem with the water in my whole floor, but he still let us rent the room. He was also unwilling to help us until we made strong complain to switch to other room

    Do not make the same mistake, please. ”
    I realized I made the mistake of not taking the low rating reviews seriously. I was worried, but the price for a Saturday night was reasonable. I prepared myself mentally not to expect too much. However, I was already extremely disgusted and in great shock within 30 seconds of entering this place. The main entry has piles of plastic bags on top of suitcases/bags. The trash in the kitchen was overflowing with eggshells and onion peels. It was about 4:00 p.m. there was no staff in sight for half an hour. There is no common restroom if you needed to use the bathroom. They are all inside the nasty horrible rooms. You may also be as lucky as I was to get a big warm welcome from a cockroach as you open the door for the room! I immediately booked somewhere quickly and checked out in 10 minutes! The manager "Tommy" asked me why I was checking out early. I replied, "due to number of reasons" as I just wanted to get out of there. I was in shock-panic mode that I even forgot to use the toilet.

    14인실 혼성방 잠만자도 비추 (I must not recommend this guesthouse)”
    I used 14 mix room, But all of them in guesthouse are dirty even though I used only one room. I visited other rooms except this room. As a Korean, I must not recommend this guesthouse to everyone. There are nice and cheap accommodations which I used in Korea except this guesthouse, so don't go to this guesthouse. 필기 시험있어서 가격 싼 방을 찾다가 고르게 되었고 사장님은 안보이고 외국인 스텝이 안내를 했습니다. 조식을 제공해준다고 되어있는데 조식은 어떻게 먹는지도 모르고 로비에 주방과 정수기, 녹차, 커피, 종이컵이 있어서 차만 마시고 인근 김밥집가서 먹었네요. 정수기 녹차 커피 종이컵 인근에 쓰레기통이 있고 치우지도 않는지 냄새 그대로... 로비에 컴퓨터도 있고 게스트분들 짐도 있습니다. 14인실은 지하에 있다보니 습하고 도어락에 건전지를 빼놓아서 그런가 작동하지 않는데 그 이유는 사람들이 문 열기 쉽게 한거라네요 차라리 그럴거면 다른방처럼 보증금을 받고 키를 주지... 불 스위치는 입구 오른쪽 벽에 있다 하네요 보이지 않아서 여기 적습니다. 2층 침대가 7개, 정돈되지 않은 사물함 몇개와 게스트분들 짐이 올려진 탁자와 의자 선풍기 문어발콘센트? 가 있고 침대는 정해지지 않고 그냥 빈 곳 아무데나 가서 쓰라고 했고 침구류 상태는 최악입니다. 정리되지 않은 것들도 있고 침대보를 쓸었는데 먼지 천지고 이불도 꾸질꾸질 정리되어 있지도 않아서 후기에 위생 별로라는거 알고 피죤들고가서 뿌리고 잤네요. 1층침대는 운좋으면 천막을 2층 침대 틀에 묶어서 쓸 수 있고 화장실은 다른 방도 그렇고 세면대가 하수구가 연결되어있지 않아서 쓰면 물이 바닥으로 다 새요.

    Great value, not only did I save money because most restaurants and shopping are in the same neighborhood, but the hostel is literally located a minute away from the metro station. It’s really amazing to live in such a convenient location. Great location can’t get any better. Common area was pretty social. Good WIFi. Staff was nice. Thanks Roger.

    Avoid like the plague, nobody here cares, the staff, the guests, no one”
    I checked in to this hostel and within 5 minutes I had checked back out. The place is filthy and looks nothing like it does in the photos. It is disgusting. There is mess everywhere. I was meant to stay in the 14-bed dormitory but there was no way I was staying. I value myself, I am a human being. The room was filled with trash (in the middle of the room, under beds, on some beds...), there was a smoking area (in a basement? In a room??) that was filled with cigarette butts, the bathroom was in awful condition (the water runs from under the sink into a drain that is beneath your own feet!!), every single bottom bunk had covered their beds in bed sheets so as to give themselves privacy (this and all the trash everywhere suggests that no one gets any sleep here...), and lastly the door to the room is always open. Not just unlocked, but WIDE OPEN for anyone to come in and steal your belongings. This hostel is a lie. The pictures are completely false. It is vile here.

    pros: Good location, near to cheonguu metro station (but you can find better location like meondong) Friendly staff cons: bad cleanliness (the floor was full of hair, it wasn't clean for a long time) there is nothing to separate the shower from toilet the sink was broken, so everyone you use it, the floor get wet

    Don't go this place”
    This place have all the inconvenient that a hostel could have, but none of the benefits. Bad location, extremely dirty (I guess they never clean), they ask for a 10 dollar deposit for the key, and if you ask for an adapter for your cell phone, they will try to sell you one for 6 dollars (outside there are for 1 dollar). We were staying in Korean hotels all the trip and, for the same money, all of them were far better (clean, good staff, breakfast, etc). Maybe the problem is that this hostel is ruled by foreigners.

    toilet smelled like a sewer”
    I stayed here 2 years ago and enjoyed my stay, and was hoping to repeat that. unfortunately, i was met with a disappointing and dirty room. wiped the floor with a tissue and got so much dirt on it! what was worse was that the toilet smelled like the sewer. i just told myself to tolerate it since i was staying only 2 nights, but when i went to refill my water bottle at the water dispenser and saw all the cockroaches running around, i almost lost it. really sad how a place i initially enjoyed staying in turned up this way. staff were pretty polite, though. as always, the location is good since it's a few meters away from the subway. i don't think i'll be returning, though.
