Stayed 1 night in December 2015
Cheap Hotel ”
Near Nambu bus terminal, some restaurants, and subway
I wouldn't recommend this place unless you really trying to save money and looking for something close to Nambu bus terminal. Its winter and the room was very cold. I was told, heat isn't turned on in the rooms until like after 11pm. The light in my room took forever to come on. The toilet paper wasn't replenished. And the worst thing is, when i was laying in the bed, i pulled up the covers to discover there was a big period stain underneath the blanket. I felt gross the whole night. The Staff is nice, but if you're looking for a cleaner place to stay, then this place isn't for you.

Dirty, Messy, Uncomfortable place”
I booked 2 days but I had to change a schedule. I had to stay just one day. Before I went there, I asked whether I could refund one day. Then they say, "Left's meet and check in first" So I did.But there was no refund at all. If the place was good, I could handle that. But!!! How could they do?? This place needs to be cleaned. I was shocked. There were dirty things. I could smell something disgusting easily. The bathroom was not clean,too. I would never go that place. This place is not hotel.

Great location, friendly staff”
The hotel has a good location near the Nambu bus terminal and the airport bus, the staff is very friendly, and there are numerous restaurants/coffee shops nearby.
The hotel is good value for money. The room was comfortable but the bathroom lights didnt work. I felt like that is a necessary fix that should be noticed and fixed before renting a room.

In town just for the night”
Close to nambu bus terminal
On agoda.com it says you can check into the hostel at 11am, but thats a mistake. The actual time is 2pm. I showed up early, luckily my room was empty and already clean. I was just in Seoul for one night and need to leave using Nambu bus terminal. its very convenient if you have to use it. Gangnam City hostel is a nice little affordable place if you just looking to be in seoul for a quick moment. Theres not too much around the hostel, but there subway station is very close to travel to other areas.

1 star hostel with 5 star hospitality ”
Good location, decent breakfast, hundreds over of tv channel
It was located 5 mins away. Good location with nice restaurants around. If you need help on BBQ recommendation, ask for this restaurant called 'Jeju Pork" or something like dat. As you get out of the hostel, you will see centro hotel at your 1 o'clock. Turn right at the junction and walk pass a convenient stall (on the right). Keep going down and you see a 24 hour BBQ restaurant written in Korean word. Kudos to Hyung Jay for recommending this awesome place. Well, the super friendliness of the staffs is the strength of this place. However, rooms are abit small but they have super huge bathroom. I think it was designed that way for fire escape. If you are travelling wit family, this is probably not that suitable but I highly recommend it to solo or couple travelers. Also, no lifts in the hostel so you gota carry your luggage. That's why it's harder for family but if you don mind, go ahead. You'd be impress with their awesome hospitality.

Good location but far beyond my expectation ”
Location and friendly staff, I can think only 2 things
Not too bad overall but hostel's cleanness must be improved. Leaving garbages along first floor corridor is not acceptable. Not sure if I was an unlucky one whose toilet was unable to flush and had to ask for urgent help.
