      Small room but great location”

      It's in a good location near to attractions. The owner, Sean, who does the room cleaning too, fetched us from the train station. The apartment is in a commercial building, on top of convenience stores, restaurants and cafes. The room is small especially after placing our luggage. Something unsatisfactory -- Sean warned us not to adjust the temperature in the room because it may affect the water temperature. However, it got too cold in the winter night and I adjusted it nonetheless. Also, I asked whether there is dryer function in the washing machine, to which he answered no. However, a simple google translate showed me the Korean words on the machine said "Dryer" and hence I used the dryer function regardless. I have a hunch this Sean was trying to keep electricity bills low. Other than the owner being perhaps a tad too much of a control freak, the apartment is a worthy stay due to its terrific location.

      If all rooms equipped with a mircowave oven, then it is easy for perparing hot milk for coffee. The toilet flushing water is weak. I like the shower area s isolated that is rare to find in S. Korea. Mr. Sean is very nice and helpful.

      Most satisfactory place to stay”

      For foreign travellers like us, hostel coco was one of the best choice their is. Sean, the manager can understand and speak english which was a big factor for us. The hostel is also near meongdong which was the shopping street there. The only thing that lacks in the hostel is the lack of information desk so we can't leave our baggage behind after checking out

      location, price, comfortable

      hostel coco locates in the centre of the central area of seoul, nearly all popular Seoul attractions are within 20 minutes walk from the hostel, it's the greatest advandage of living there. subway stations of 2 lines, bus stops, tons of restaurants are just downstairs or nearby. the room is spacious, but the rate are comparatively low. finally, i would like to say thank you to Mr Sean, the hostel manager, for the hospitable reception to my family.

      Good Location, Convenient and Comfortable

      Hostel coco locates in the middle of city. It is very near to the visitor areas, lots of food/restaurant nearby. Very convenient for travelling, Airport bus stop is next to the building and for those who do not want to walk much, you can take bus to travel around the city. The bus stop is in front of the building. Me and my friend had a good time and enjoy stay here. If I would visit Seoul again, I will definitely choose Hostel Coco as my first choice. The owner, Mister Sean is very nice and friendly. I would recommend to stay at HostelCoco next time you visit Seoul

      Location, size, Sean Kwon

      The location of Hostel Coco is the best. It is within 10-20 min walking distance to so many museums, lotte department store, palaces, Insadong.... Subway station was short walking distance from hostel and Dongdaemoon was only a few subway stops away. Hostel owner/manager Sean was amazingly helpful. We rented pocket wifis from Incheon but because we were arriving so late, he went above and beyond to make sure we received them the evening we arrived (midnight). He was incredibly helpful with directions to/from Gimpo and Incheon as well as any sites we wanted to see. There are so many places to eat even within the Hostel building which Sean was able to give his recommendations. Hostel was very clean and modern - kitchen and washer were essential for such a long stay. Highly recommend Hostel Coco. The deluxe family room Was the perfect size for our family of 4.

      Excellent service and location

      Thank you for everything which arranged by Sean in Hong Kong and Seoul. Sean is extremely helpful that even we just made the booking from Agoda, he sent an email to provide the detail information about how to go there. He also stood at the bus stop for a long time in the early morning, just for escorting us to the room for early check in. Besides, the room is very clean and big enough for keeping all the suitcases open during the whole trip. No doubt, Hostel Coco will still be my best choice for my next stay in Seoul.

      Firstly we're amazed. after we booked,the owner email us about his hostel and guides to go to the hostel. Few days before we go, he confirmed us. And the day we came, he picked us up at the bus stop, and took us to the hostel. He always answered our questions nicely. The hostel very near to subway, so we're not wasted our time. The hostel facilities very completed and clean. We stayed there for 6 days, and they cleaned our room every 2 days. Definitely will stayed there again if we visit Seoul.
