    Comfortable stay”
    Clean beds, spacious rooms, near intercity bus terminal
    The hostel is not easy to locate and they forgot to tell us that we can't check in early, despite us informing them in advance. Neither did they tell us the password to the lock, so we had to wait outside for a very long time before someone let us in. However, they were quick to apologise for their lack of foresight and the big, clean beds made our stay generally pleasant. Would stay there again if I want to travel out of Seoul to another city since the terminal is a walking distance away, but it is too far from central Seoul if you just want to shop.

    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.

    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.

    Best service one can ever get! ”
    The hostel is conveniently located 3mins walk away from Nambu Bus Stn and airport shuttle 6016 brings you right to the doorstep. The boss and staffs were really helpful and can all speak english.
    Although it was a hostel but the service provided were even better than hotels. They help beyond their means and would definitely try to meet the needs of all customers. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone esp those who plan to live in Seoul on a long term basis. It is affordable, convenient and comfortable. The rooms are ensuite by the way, so you don't have to share the toilets. There's a user friendly communal kitchen and computer for customers to utilize as well :)

    Room, Bathroom, Staff
    While I was in Korea, I visited 3 guest house. Gangnam City Hostel is surely the best of all. The room for one person is big and we have a private bathroom. The staff is kind and helpful. They communicated well and easily, they even can give you activities to do in Seoul I can't say about food, because I never ate in the guesthouse. But I can say for the wifi, even if sometimes there was some problem, it was absolutely the best of all.

    Everything was great. Location is good, really close to the subway and many convenience stores around. Staff are really helpful and welcoming. Wi-fi worked great in the room and common areas. The room was clean and bed comfortable. Breakfast was good, it's self-service and you can prepare whatever you want, apart from the basics they have (milk, coffee, bread, jelly, eggs...). There are a couple of washing machines on the top floor, and although there are no dryers, they let you use the rooftop to dry your clothes.

    I've stayed at a similar priced hostel in Hongdae, and this place was soooooo much nicer. That's why I was pleasantly surprised. The room was nice and clean, and the bathroom was HUGE! The shower head was like I was standing in a rain shower. I would definitely stay here again. I also wanted to add that the staff was very helpful. I needed help looking for a club in Gangnam, and the guy at the desk gave me great directions.

    English Speaking Staff, Great Location, Reasonably Priced
    I stayed at the Gangnam City Hostel for one night, and it was wonderful. It is literally two blocks away from Nambu Bus Terminal (and the associated subway stop on the Orange line) so getting to and from any of the Gangnam hot spots is a quick cab ride, and you can get to almost any neighborhood in Seoul in less than 30 minutes by subway. I highly recommend it for people who need a place to sleep while they're in the city.

    Helpful and Accommodating staff, near restaurant,
    It was a nice stay at the hostel. Our room was comfortable enough (nice bed, nice bathroom, heater is working, large tv with cable, etc). Towels are refreshed everyday. The hostel's location is also good. Subway train station is just a few minutes walks away from the hostel. Although tourists destinations like Deoksugung Palace, Myeong-Dong shopping area, Namdaemun Market to name a few are a little bit far from hostel, Coax Mall GangNam street and other gangnam area are just within 15 min by subway. The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. From getting around the hostel and around Seoul and helping us get a taxi, they did a really good job.

Central location in Gangnam area for shopping, nightlife and good selection of restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay here again!

    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.

    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.

    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.
