    Budget Accomodation, Convenient Location”

    The location is great! It's a few walk away from the subway station (jongno-sam ga). It is also easy to find. You can see their sign through the small alley. The room we got is a family room (good for 4 persons) though there are only 3 of us. It is a little small but works fine. There is enough space to lay flat your luggage and arrange your things. We just need to take our turns. Overall, I can recommend this place. Will stay here again next time I go to Korea.

    Location and Staff”

    Just a few steps away from the metro. Walking distance to major palaces (10 mins) and Myeongdong Street (about 8 mins). There are quite good restaurant selection around the area. Staff are very nice and accommodating. You can ask them for advise on where to go and they can point them to you in a map.

    Very good location and value for money”

    Pros: Accomodating staff especially Ms. Eunie for the extra mile service. She helped us with our take out food, our transportation for our early morning flight to Jeju. She was really very helpful to our group's needs. Very good location, near the subway and bus stop. Near the market also and very near to good places to eat. Cons: Our sink was clogged almost the entire time we were there The room was quite small The aircon in our room was not functioning The free bfast was limited to american style bfast. Bread and a selection of spreads, jam, butter etc. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay.

    The perfect location, and most helpful staff!”

    If you want to be close to everything touristic, this place is as close to the best subway intersection as you can be. The place is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. You'll feel like home right away! It is in the middle of the city, so if you're very noise sensitive, you may look a bit further outside. It's nothing to worry about if you're used to normal traffic noise. Basically, you'll get a lot of value for money here!

    If you're looking for a cheap hostel in Jongno 3-ga, I recommend this place - everything's walking distance to some nearby attractions. Room is small though but it's clean. Be sure to inform them if you'll arrive late so they could leave your room key at the reception area.

    The hotel location is very convenient to travelers like us.”

    The hotel is just a walking distance from exit 15 of Jong-no 3 ga station. There are a lot of restaurant just outside of the hostel. Travelling at night is not a problem as the location is very near to taxi and bus stops. The staff are so accomodating. Breakfast is ok, jams are so good. Will definitely book this again in my future travel to Korea.

    Optimal Station”

    As it is a few step to the subway station and bus stops, it's best for tourists who have a lot of places to go to. You can even walk to some tourist and shopping sites. Shops and restaurants are literaly just around the corner. The room is small and just provides the basics; but that just is what I expect for the price I was willing to pay...and that is for beds to sleep on when I'm dead tired after an entire day of touring around or shopping, keeping my luggage, and taking showers in.
