Room is small, but becoz of the price then is acceptable. Very near to hongdae shopping street, like stylenanda, sappun.. near subway station/take arex from airport is also very near to the guesthouse, no need to walk so far when carry lots of luggage. Location is best.
Fabulous and convenient hostel in Hongdae area”
The place is cozy and the manager (Violet) is very very kind, she try to give us the useful information and support Everytime. The hostel is just 5 minutes apart from Hongik metro station on foot. The food and shop are open late night.
My 2nd time at 88 Hostel”
This is my second time visiting 88 Hostel. Violet, the host, is kind and helpful as always. The location , of course, is in the heart of Hongdae, where you can find EVERYTHING you want from grocery store to cosmetic shop, walking street for shopping, incredibly delicious restaurants and chic coffee shop. I will never miss this hostel next time in Seoul !!! Direction tips for the new visitors: from MRT Hongik uni. Exit 8 / Limousine bus Bo.6002 station -> turn right into the street -> go straight then you will find CU mart at the corner -> turn right and go straight -> when you see 7-11 and Churro shop on you left, turn left into that street -> go straight till you find 7-11 on you right, then turn left -> walk pass a couple building, and the hostel is on the little street on you left, opposite to the Urban Breaktime.
Comfortable and home feel hostel”
This hostel is near to HongYik station with walking distant and you will like if you love to shop around. The staff Ms. Violet is so friendly and give us advance on the tour plan. If you plan to stay this hostel, advise to print out the map or direction as the taxi driver (Korean) may not able to search by their GPS to this hostel (hostel location isn't at the mainroad). Overall, happy and comfortable to stay at Hostel 88.
Nice staff and good location”
It was great stay. at first, A staff is friendly and helpfull. On the first day, I found the hostel easily. The red color of the hostel was noticeable. I arrived earlier than check in time and a staff let me in immediately because my room was ready. When my friends and I need Korean fried chicken delivery at 11pm, she ordered great one for us! So, I'm appriciate that the staff made our overall stay wonderful. The location was convenient becasuse Seven eleven was quite near from the hostel. This area is packed with nice cafes and aparel shops which open from around 11 am to 11pm. Our Room and kitchen was clean and comfortable. I definitely choose this hostel again when I visit seoul next.
The staff (Ms. Violet) is very helpful and friendly. She provided a helpful map and we could find the hostel easily. She speaks good English and gave us some good recommendation of places to visit in Seoul. However, the room is quite small and a bit noisy at night. I would recommend this place for young travelers rather than family.
helpful service，clean，warm welcome，nice staff”
88 Hostel Seoul is a very new hotel and may takes 10 mins walk to Hongik Univ subway station. Staff in 88 is very nice and helpful to introduce the surroundings of 88. There is a shared kitchen on 3th floor. u can cook by ur personally in the kitchen. Room is a little small but it's clean and warm enough. The water in bathroom is warm enough but the water come out from the tap in the room is too cold.
The place is not far from train and there are many restaurants around there. The room is really comfortable, clean and bigger than I thought when I saw on the website. The most thing that I would like to recommend about this place because of the friendly and kind staffs who are help me and my friend in everything. (:
The great place to stay is here!!”
I really recommended. This place was good and easy to go, and the staffs were friendly. Especially, it located at the center of Hong Dae. If I have any chances to go to South Korea, this hostel absolutely my first choice.
Pros : - Great location, not too far from subway even the AREX line which makes going there from airport is super easy. - Even though its place near the busking area, the hostel still have some distance so the night time / rest time is not loud and quiet. - Super easy and reachable convenience store. - Near so many good restaurants/eating place. - The staff is definitely more than friendly, it feels like having an old friend welcoming you on your trip. Cons : - The room is not really soundproof-ed, so we need to keep quiet as to not bother other guest. Will definitely return later when visiting Seoul again. A+ for the staff friendliness.
The accommodation of this Korea trip is fun by staying on this hostel. It give us the feeling of home/ hostel. The staff Violet and Yu Ting is very helpful and friendly. They help us a lot in this trip by recommending the place, when to travel to which location, nice pub to drink, etc. Will definitely come back again for staying in this hostel in the future.
Very straightforward stay for us and value for money. ”
We stayed 2 nights here and it was comfortable and quiet. We slept like a log. The guesthouse is kept very clean and tidy. It was a short walk from hongik univ station. Fresh towels, breakfast, and drinking water were available daily. The heated floors were great as it was freezing in Seoul during our visit. We were also able to store our luggage before checking in as well as after checking out. Although we had a small hiccup during check in as we did not appear in their schedule, they assured us that a room will be available. As with most guesthouses, note that you need to carry your luggage up some stairs depending on which floor your room is. Highly reccomend this guesthouse.
This guesthouse is super clean and cozy. Exactly the same as the advertised pictures show. It is located in Hongdae Area, around 5-10 mins walk from the Subway Line 2 & Airport Express Line. There are convenient stores, restaurants and bars around. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
The hostel is great with very kind staff and good location. The price is quite expensive during high season and the toilet is a little bit small. However, overall is really good. I always choose this hostel during my vacay in korea.

Thank you for your kind and take care. I will recommend this hostel to every one. See you again when I going to Korea.
Like your moms' house”
Very homey. Like your mom's kitchen with everything on sight. Help yourself if you need anything, like tissue and breakfast . Prepare your meal and wash the dishes after :-P violet the manager is very helpful. Even to strangers who booked somewhere but was in the wrong address. She even called a taxi for us when we already checked out. This place is quiet, although its near main Hongdae street. I'm coming back here next time.
Great Hostel at a Great Location”
The hostel was a great budget accomodation in Seoul. Walking distance to Hongik University (night market and shops) and also walking distance to the train station. The staff was friendly and was able to speak english and helped us a lot in planning navigating through the city via train. Despite being a small room with any barely space to walk, we were spending most of our time exploring the city. Thus, the room was a cosy place to sleep at the end of a long day. An added advantage to other hostels, the room was equipped with their own bathroom. :)
This hostel is in good location which needs 4 minutes walk to Hongik Uni metro station.Meanwhile,the staff there is helpful n friendly.I must recommmend to my friends to stay here when they plan to travel Seoul.
Great hostel for couples ”
This is my favourite hostel in Seoul. The hostel is always clean and warm and the staff are great! The location is also perfect for getting to the airport and also just as a great district of Seoul to explore.
the best hostel”
This place has a very good location, 5 minutes walk to subway station and a lot of shops around. Cosmetics, clothes, accessories, shose..basically you can get everything with resonable price in Hongdae area. Thie room is simply yet clean and tidy. Hostel manager Violet is friendly and very helpful. I would like to stay again definitely!
