                Small local hostel with simple and comfy private rooms and a family feeling”

                You should think of CMS as actually something in-between a hostel and hotel, with affordable private single and double rooms. The equipment is rudimentary but the rooms are always clean and have the basic necessities and a private bathroom so this is a perfect place for someone wishing for some privacy but travelling on a budget.The place is ran by a really friendly local family and they try their best to make you feel comfortable and welcome. The breakfast is simple and taken in the common room. The location of the hostel couldn't be better, less than a minute walk from Hoegi station's main entrance, and in the Hoegi student area full of bars, korean BBQs and other restaurants. The proximity with the subway station makes it really easy to explore anywhere in Seoul from there!

                1) Clean room and great staff 2) Nearby to metro station and shop is everywhere from grocery store to restaurant 3) Affordable price compared to others

                We are really happy with the place and service from CMS Inn. It is only 5 minutes walk from Hoegi station.The room size was just nice for 2 even with our luggage laid out. We were lucky to get to know the owner and his family who helped us a lot throughout our trip in Korea. Food was not a problem as CMS Inn provided breakfast (eggs, korean noodles, bread, butter, jam) or you can also go out to the numerous food stalls and restaurant around the area (most of them only open around 11am till late). A definite recommendation is to try the street food that is available at night. There is also a local supermarket about 5 minutes walk from CMS Inn where the group of us bought a lot of delicious Korean snacks. Do not forget to also visit Kyung Hee University which is just 20 minutes away. The campus was really beautiful with it's big area and architecture.

                Clean place with kind staff”

                I ended up booking a room at Hoegi CMS after I could no longer take it at a different hostel I had booked that ended up being tiny and terrible smelling. When I came to Hoegi, the staff helped me immediately with moving my luggage up the short flight of stairs to the lobby. Despite having come early, they allowed me to check in and was very polite and helpful with all the questions I had. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The room was very clean and well kept and had a lot of amenities that many hostels do not have. I was so surprised with how nice this hostel was for the price. I definitely recommend this place for any traveller needing a clean place to stay. They have a laundry machine on site that you can use and the place is very close to a lot of restaurants and convenience stores.

                Location, low cost, kind owner

                I recently stayed at cms inn for 10 days. It was one of the best deals. It is located right next to hoegi station which was convenient. The rooms are very small and there is no daily cleaning, which is expected for the price. The owner and staff were extremely kind and generous with us. The kitchen with breakfast items were a nice bonus. Would definitely stay again and recommend for budget minded travelers seeking a clean, newer, functional place to stay.

                Super great location, convenient to move around the city and there are a lot of restaurants, shops, cafes and convenient stores right beside the hostel. The subway (Hoegi station, Line 1) and bus stop is just 1 min walk away from the hostel. Free breakfast provided (all self-service) such as ramen, egg, toast, cereal, coffee & tea, etc. Room is clean with towels, shampoo and body wash provided. Free to do laundry (self-service) within the operating hours from 8am to 11pm. Iron is available upon request. Staff are very friendly and can speak english, so do not have to worry about communication problem. They will help you with your luggage on the day of check-in. There is elevator, but it does not stop directly at your room level. You have to take another stairs up to your room level. So, it is kind of inconvenient if you have very big and heavy luggages. Making up room service is not availble daily, only done upon request and have to request 1 day in advance.

                Stayed 4 nights in December 2017

                Very good”

                + very near the Hoegi Station + lots of small restaurant stalls nearby + the owner and/or the staff are very accommodating and friendly + heaters are working well, staying here during the winter will not be a problem + you can try out their hanbok and have your picture taken for FREE - they do not hand you big bath towels unless you request one -breakfast choices are very limited Nonetheless, I enjoyed my stay here. I will definitely book this hotel again when I return to Seoul soon!

                I'm from Canada, and go to school in seoul but didn't make it intime to get into my dorm so i had to find a hotel. I'm so glad i found this. very affordable. from desk was nice and ready for me ( even though i was two hours late) carried my bags to my room which was really lovely. Keep in mind this a KOREAN hotel in Korea, so the beds are harder, the washrooms are wet showed, and the space is small. but it's lovely and clean and quiet and if you want to sleep in no one is knocking on your door trying to get into your room like american style. I'm suggesting all my friends and family to stay here, location price and comfortability is awesome!

                Very near station”

                I found this hotel when all of hotels near center were not available. This hotel is very near Hoegi station, only 50 meters. There are a lot of small restaurants with reasonable price.The staff are very accommodating and friendly. Heaters are working well. Breakfast choices are very limited.

                Amazing place, great value ”

                The breakfast was great. They give you unlimited eggs, soup, coffee, juice, bread, jam etc. You have to cook it yourself but that’s even better because you can make it the way you like it! The room was big (double bed for two people) and the facilities were great. We were scared to book due to it being out of town a bit but the location couldn’t of been better. It’s a 2 minutes walk from the subway and there are so many things around as well. Seoul is so big no matter where you stay you’ll have to get the subway so might as well save a bit and stay here. We honestly couldn’t fault the place. They also had free water refill and gave shampoo/body wash/razor.

                It is actually near at Hoegi Station but not Dongdaemun Station.. Saw the address will misunderstanding the location for 1st time traveller to Korea. However, it is nice place, nice people around there..

                Decent Clean Hotel If Traveling Alone”

                The room was very small and the building is very close to Hoegi Station. You can hear the trains from early morning until late at night. I took a look at the breakfast that was offered and it was not anything interesting. Thankfully I cut my visit short due to personal reasons and only stayed one of the two nights.

                Location, the rooms were the same as the pictures, cheap

                We lived in a twin bedroom with two beds. It was nice with aircondition and the rooms were exactly as the pictures online. A disappointment was the sheets. It was a little bit dirty but otherwise the bathroom was clean and they even had toothbrush and shampoo for us and towels. I would definitely recommend this place to others but I would approximately sleep here for a week. And the personal spoke very good English and was very helpful. The wifi was so so, at least were we were (our room was right next to the reception).

                Very friendly receptionist. Is a family business. Free han bok wearing. Breakfast is free & u need to prepare yourself. Near to metro train. The only problem is the elavator cannot match the building floor. For example, your room at 2nd floor, you need to press 3rd floor in the elavator & go down the stairs to 2nd floor. If you are carrying large luggage bags, you will have problem to carry up & down the stairs. Overall is satisfy. Nice stay.
