          Nice hotel to stay for a day.”

          I think this hotel does not focus on cleaning because I could find some hairs on floor and bed but it is really cheap to stay near Gangnam area so if you want to save your budget then this place is for you. Also they don't offer toothbrush, toothpaste shampoo, conditioner, and body wash so you need to bring all of them.

          The hostel is in the prime area in Gangnum. It's a walking distance to pubs and nightlife place. It's also very easy to commute around Seoul. Staff are friendly. The hostel also has a microwave oven and an electric kettle. The only issue here is it's quite noisy sometimes when the guests or long term tenants in the above floor are walking, talking, or doing something.

          good location, friendly staff, kitchenette

          The hostel is easily reached by Airport bus, only 3 minutes walk from the bus stop. Convenient store was just around the corner, less than a minute walk. Staff there was very helpful. The room was small but cosy with a kitchenette and microwave. The hostel didn't have a dining room (I think), so kitchenette was a good idea except that there was no cutlery or plate provided! But given the location and the price we would stay again when we visit Seoul.

          Very New Hostel located in Gangnam area”

          close to subway station, close to convenient store, easy check in and check out

          The receptionist open from 8AM to 10PM, while I arrived in Seoul after 10PM. The hostel said that there will be no staff at that time so they give me my room number and room password so I can check in by myself. The room is very new and clean. It is quite spacious, compare to the other Hostel we stayed. It is full furnished (sink, washing machine, microwave, stove, etc). But, the sink kinda smelly sometimes, especially in the morning. Since we go out in the morning and back very late, so it's not a big problem for us. One of the main disadvantage is the hostel is quite far from tourist destination, means you have to spend more time taking subway. (Subway station is about 5 mins walk)

          I think price of the room is valuable, but the room condition was extremely dirty. I could easily find dirt on the floor and desk, also mirror. I wonder how could they get 7.5 score with this room condition. I sat many customers complained about cleaning system through review, but they didn't change anything. I think I will never visit here anymore ;(

          Location was good and it was in a pretty quite area. Room was small and the bed was harder than i'm used to but it was decent. I did accidentally book a night before I arrived which I attempted to fix right away. They would not allow me to fix my booking because they treated it as a cancellation rather than modifying.

          Good location, clean and convenient”

          The hostel is very near to subway station. It only takes less than 5-min walk to the nearest station (sinnonhyeon station) and 15 mins walk to gangnam station. There are lots of restaurants and shops around the gangnam station. You can find food easily around the region. There is also a local market located near the nonhyeon station, which is the opposite direction to gangnam station. The room was clean as well. However, the service was suboptimal. Staff will only be here from 10am to 5/6pm (it stated to be 7pm officially). You have to wait till 10 to drop off your luggages if you arrive early. There was no house keeping service. You have to clear the rubbish by yourself. But we just stayed for 4 nights so it's fine for us. If you are not demanding and are looking for good location in Gangnam, this would be a nice place to stay. But if you are looking for more service, then this may not be a good option for you.

          Initially I was skeptical because of the policy wording, but this turned out to be a great place. The staff was wonderful and the room was spacious compared to some hotels I paid more for. The location is perfect. There is main line right next to the hotel and Han river is in walking distance, at least for me.

          Great!”

          friendly staff, good location, and worth your money.

          I stayed at Hostel KW Gangnam for about a week, and i would recommend people to stay here. Its like 7 mins away from Gangnams main shopping street. There are many things in the area such as restaurant choices, an mini emart and lots of taxis if you need one. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The heating system in my room was great. I loved using the heated floors. Its a good place to stay if youre in seoul for a few days because the room is spacious, theres a fridge and sink, so you can buy some foods or warm in up in your microwave. You can also do some shopping in that area since theres so many stores.

          Good value and stay”

          Affordable, privacy, and staff communication

          The staff at Hostel KW Gangnam were great with their communication, always prompt with e-mail inquiries. This was highly appreicated! The family room I booked was quite nice, a little small, but enough space to be comfortable for a few nights. However, the bathroom was a bit dirty. That is the only complaint I have about my stay here, otherwise everything was good. Thanks, Hostel KW Gangnam!
