Awesome!”
We had a good stay because this place is so accessible to anywhere we want to go by public transport. There's lots of food and convenient stores in this area. It's quiet at night. And most importantly, the staff were friendly and very helpful. He helped us to carry our baggages to the bus station after when we leave. The only down side is that the rooms are rather small and there's not much space for us to put things especially when there's a lot of shopping items.

Clean, near to airport shuttle and Dongdaemun Market”
Hostel is near to exit 7 of Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Train Station, however there is no elevator at exit 7. Hostel is clean and staff was very friendly. The hostel boss helped me to carry my luggage up to level 3 during check-in and down from level 3 during check-out. Clear instructions of ways of travelling to hostel were given via email after confirmation via agoda. Hostel is near to shopping area, about 5 mins walk to Lotte and less than 10 mins to the Dongdaemun Market. Many nearby cafes near the hostel. I personally tried a few shops there and they all tasted really good. Less than 5 mins walk to airport limousine shuttle busstop (near Baiton Hotel) to airport on my last day. Overall had a good stay, except that the bed is a little hard.

Hostel with high price-performance ratio”
Next to the train station, Quite clean, but quite small
It is of relatively low price, but I am satisfied with the hostel in general. The staff are quite helpful and can speak in English and Putonghua. They are also willing to give advice, help to take luggage and chat with us. The location is also near to train station. However, there are some shortcomings, such as the time to use washing machine is short, the bed is too small that it looks like a large bed for one person, and the room is quite small. To conclude, the hotel is of high price-performance ratio, despite of some shortcomings.

Above and beyond”
staff helpfulness, cleanliness and location
In all honesty I booked Hwashin Hostel without realising that it was a hostel and not a hotel. I was travelling with family and everyone was worried about staying in a hostel. Being ready for the worst, we realised that its not at all the nightmare we imagined. We were greeted with warm smiles and helped to our rooms. Everyday the people at Hwashin went out of their way to accommodate us. In particular, my mother had a bruised toe and was having some difficulty keeping up with all the walking in Seoul. The manager actually took the time to go out and buy some local ointments for my mom to apply to her bruised toe. The sincerity experienced at Hwashin was ABOVE & BEYOND expectations and has prompted me to write this review (I typically don't leave reviews on Agoda). Highly recommended for their level of service and also their proximity to the late night shopping district.

Great location but small room”
Convenient location located near main shopping area, friendly staff, low price
There was no elevators and it was difficult to carry our bulky luggage up the stairs. But the friendly staff volunteered to help us carry seeing that we're girls. Every morning, he would ask us if the room is fine, good service for a hostel. Ear plugs also avail at the counter as there's construction going on at certain timing. Not that it affected us since we're only back in the wee hours. Room was super tiny and we faced problems packing our luggage or storing our shopping loots. Despite the room being tiny, you still get a decent sized flat panel TV, hairdryer, washing machine downstairs. Good enough since its supposed to be a hostel. The toilet was surprisingly spacious enough for such a small room compared to Hong Kong hotels where you would have probs opening/closing the bathroom door. Location is a bit hidden in the alleys and might seem dark and scary at night if you're walking back alone. But there are 24/7 convenient stores around the corner, live CCTVs and a hotel nearby. Though I always walk past this hotel with many ajusshis standing outside, they seem to be just decent hotel guests. Might be a little hard to find the hostel for your first night but look out for landmarks like eateries and its fine. The place is within short walking distance to the subway & main shopping belt. Overall, the hotel's good for budget travellers but I've stayed in better places where I can top up slightly little for a much bigger size service apartment by the main road.
