Awesome, well-run hostel”

Really enjoyed my stay. Staff and volunteers were super nice and helpful. Thorough cleaning every day. Room was a little cramped but bed was comfy and with privacy curtains. Nice common areas; very social vibe. Good kitchen. Great location maybe 10 min walking to metro and the Hongdae tourist area. Would definitely stay again.

Good stay for stay and live”

Love the location of hostel, it’s not too close to the station, need to take 6-7 minutes walk to hostel, while the walk you can easy to grab something to eat to shop to chill. And there is less crowded than the main streets, but you still could find so many restaurants, cafe and convenience store near to the hostel. From airport to hostel just take the subway and you not have to transfer line to arrive there, so I would like to have another stay in the next time.

Great hostel!”

Nice and cozy place, very social. Clean and well equipped. 15 mins walk from Hongyik Uni metro station. Wish I was able to stay longer, but it's always full.

Hongdae's Best Hostel”

Stayed here for a month and had a fantastic time, meeting new folks and going out. The hostel itself is very laid back and it's easy to get along with the staff and guests. Shoutout to the owners Jenny and Jeremy for making me feel at home.
