              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.

              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.

              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!

              It's near subway and coffee shop/restaurant in walking distance so very convenient for travelers. The staffs there are very nice and helpful. One of the lady even proactively led us to the coffee shop after knowing we wanted to have some drinks. The only drawback is the breakfast which is too simple with limited choices

              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!

              Great location, clean room”

              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.

              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.

              Near subway station”

              Near subway, breakfast, free wifi

              The good thing about this place that it's near hoegi subway station. The location is quite far from the city center. The room is too small for a triple bedroom. We always got problems with the electricity plug. Receptionist told us to inform them a day before to clean up the room. We asked for it twice but they never showed up until we checked out after staying for four nights.

              location, cleanliness, friendly and helpful staff

              The rooms are really small, but still comfy enough. Rooms are clean and modern. Location is great; lots of food/shopping and even subway station located in the vicinity. The sounds of the subway could be heard, but it isnt too loud and disruptive unless u are a very light sleeper. The owner and her daughter are very helpful and kind :)

              value for money”

              good location, new facilities

              it is close to the subway station (although it's quite far from the subway station to the city centre). it is also close to some convenient stores and restaurants (at different levels) so it's very easy to get some food at a very late time of night. the bathroom is quite small. wifi works well.

              Simple & Affordable Stay In Seoul City”

              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.
