              Stayed 2 nights in July 2019

              Recommend!!!!!!!!!!!”

              Pros : There’s a lot of things that I should tell every other customers out there. I would give a 5/5 stars for this room. Why? I stay here for 2 nights, and Im absolutely will come back staying here when im travelling to Seoul again. This hostel has everything. A simple breakfast every morning (a bread with jam), a kitchen with sinks, microwave, toaster and refrigerator, an iron, free washing machine, and water dispenser (both hot and cold), also have tv, small refrigerator and hair dryer inside your own room. The room is comfortable, and for me it’s big enough. The toilet is also big and clean. The hostel is at 5th floor and it has lift (i read the review before i went here and most of the people says there’s no lift but actually it is a lie... maybe that’s the condition for a few years back but now they already upgraded the hostel), so you can carry your luggage easily without using the stairs. So convenient! Very near to subway (Take exit 4, Euljiro-sa(4) ga station if you’re staying here) The entrance is just at the second junction (right) from the exit. No need to cross any road. If you’re taking taxi from Seoul Station, it costs only about 5800 won. The staffs can speak english, and very helpful. Thank you so much for lending my friend your phone to make emergency calls. You can start check in at 3pm and must check out before 11am, so make sure to follow the rules. And you can leave your luggage at the hotel if you’re taking late night flights (the storage luggage in Seoul station is quite limited and you need to pay for it) so perhaps leaving your luggage in the hostel better idk. Cons : Dont forget to bring towel (I bring my own towel so it doesn’t matter to me), they only prepare face towels, sometimes it is very scary if you go back to hostel late night after 12 (if you’re travelling alone), the shower clogged somehow but for me it doesn’t matter. Overall, thank you! Im very satisfied.

              The room given to us was big and homey. I like it. It is near the subway station (euljiro 4-ga), the staff were all friendly and helped us even in the wee hours of the morning. Luggage can be stored even after check-out. My only complaint is that the bathroom floor drainage clogged (I hope they already fixed it).

              The room is bigger than other accommodations I was considering. The floor heating really helped when temperature dropped at night. Bed is very comfortable too. However, the bathroom drainage can easily get clogged.

              Our stay was great. Staff were very helpful. They even arranged a ride back to the airport for us. Our booking indicated no breakfast but they have free coffee, bread, butter and jam every 8am - just enough to keep us going til lunch. The place's location is very convenient. It is just beside Euljiro4 station. The room could be cleaner though - as I'm a meticulous person, I'd like all corners even under the ref, tables and chair cleaned. Other than that, everything was great. I'll stay here again when I come back.

              Great accommodation - very clean!”

              The place is a 2-minute walk to the nearest subway station. A convenience store is 1-minute walk. Plenty of local restaurants nearby. I booked a twin bed room because I had a friend over. The bathroom was spacious and the room was exactly what was on the photos. They provide slippers and a small towel. Wouldn’t hurt to bring your own towel if you had thick hair like me. 😂 Shampoo and body wash are also provided. Hangers and a coat rack, too. The place is clean and the hosts are friendly, kind, and can speak English. One of them advised me to take the subway to the airport at night since my flight back to MNL was in the morning. The reason was that so that I could save money and wouldn’t have trouble hailing a taxi at 1AM. Such a considerate advice! I would most certainly stay here again the next time I come back to Seoul.

              We came very late at night and leave early in the morning, so we do not have enough time to experience. But the room is very clean with private bathroom.

              I highly recommend this hostel if you're looking for a place that's near to almost everywhere. There's a subway station that's just less than 5mins away and two bus stops also 5mins away. Going to Myeongdong area is just a bus ride away. The place is also walking distance to Gwangjang market. The only downsides are the area of the hostel is a bit dark and sketchy at night since all of the neighboring shops close as early as 8pm. Also, room is not cleaned everyday. Toiletries such as tissue should be requested at the reception. Breakfast is basic bread and coffee. But I love the homey vibe of the pantry where you prepare your meal to your liking. Overall great stay. :)

              What i loved most with the hostel is that it's near a subway station so it's so easy for me to roam around the city via subway. Corrien is so accommodating with my queries and requests. For 3 days they took care of my luggage when I went to other city, that's something to be thankful for.

              Entrance to hotel is rather confusing and messy. Looks like you're entering a storage room rather to a hostel. Receptionist was welcoming and friendly. Location in a electrical district that sells home electrical appliances. Very near to subway and as such accessible to other attractions, conveniently. In short, value for money as accessible to subway.

              The short hair helper is rude. She purposely do her job in a rude way to show to us that she is angry with us. For what reason i am not sure but she simply wash HER OWN dish loudly even me and family just sitting right at her back in the pantry. Location is perfect and worth your money. But your cleaner is one rude lady. Pls ask her to being polite with your guest. We come for an holiday so please respect guests. She even stole one of my eggs that i kept in the fridge and she never said sorry to me. So if you guys r planning to stay here. Pls not to leave your belongings at the pantry. Because d staff of the hostel also can steal. Overall still i can recomment this place to travelers out there tq

              Staff is super friendly and helpful. Good breakfast too”

              The room itself is pretty tight for 4 people, but you can make it work if you don't have a lot of luggage. The breakfast room is spacious and it's decent. The staff was super accommodating and let us leave our luggage during the afternoon of check-out so we didn't have to drag it around the city.

              Good location”

              Overall we enjoyed our stay, until we realize that there are thick dust and trash under our bed. There’s even a soju bottle rolling around. Cleanliness was minimal. And our TV was not functioning. However, the place is convenient, very very close to metro. But do take note that the area can be dark and eerie at night when the shops are closed.
