My favourite hostel!”
Kind, helpful, and friendly staff who are really the heart of this hostel. Tommy and the others are really fun to talk to! The family room I stayed in was clean and comfortable. It was a great place to relax after a long day in the city. Free breakfast in the morning that gave as a great start to the day as well. They also provide other amenities like adapters, laundry, umbrellas, etc. Just such a great place to stay, and I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Awesome place to stay”
We stayed at Hostel Tommy for 4d/3n. We’re a family of 5 and the room that we got was perfect for us. Each of us got our own beds and even 6 of our luggages comfortably fitted in our room. Hostel is very clean and staff is very helpful. Mr Tommy greeted us when when came and is very friendly. He even gave my kids posters of BTS and V as welcome gifts. :) Place is near all essential bus stops and subway station, most importantly the airport bus. And we liked that there is a convenience store right below the Hostel, we enjoyed getting ice cream there to end our long day.

The hostel is really best. The room is spacious with private toilet and bathroom. The staffs are really nice. We love the warm atmosphere of the hostel. The hostel is close to the station and surrounded by a lot of restaurants and coffee shop. A short walk to Changdeokgung and there are plenty of street food at night. Totally worth the money.

I stayed there back in June and I would definitely stay there again if I do go to Seoul again. Pros: -Tommy and crew was super nice and helpful. -Located in a pretty local area which is good if you don't really like too touristy places. It is located in a pretty central area so the time needed to go anywhere wasn't too crazy. -Gyeongbokgung and myeongdong is pretty close by. -The rooftop is where you can do your laundry for a small price (1000 won for a packet of detergent ) but other than that, both washing machine and dryer is free to use. -The rooftop was probably our favourite place as the weather was cold when we were there and it was super relaxing. We spent a lot of time there after a whole day of going out. -Room is pretty clean Cons: -No elevator so older people and those with BIG luggages might have an issue. -Only small towels are provided. HOWEVER, you can request for a big one if a small towel just coudn't do the job

The place is worth our money. Both expected and unexpected things were experienced. Location-wise, it's very strategic, near to restaurants and market; respectful and very accommodating staff and the unusual feelings especially during breakfast where we felt at home because of friendly atmosphere both from staff and guests! We'll, definitely, recommend this place to our friends!

This hostel is a must stay in Seoul Korea!!! Very easy to find bear subways and airport buses. Also near palaces and famous spots in korea. It has three lines in subway thats why its very convenient. Plus the room is very wide and clean. Very good breakfast and you can be friends with other guests also. Tommy and other staffs are very helpful when I ask them directions on which place i wanted to go. You have your own wifi in the room and also you can borrow umbrell, adapter, and selfie sticks. It is very hard to leave this hostel. If i could give 10 I will do! Will surely come back. God bless Hostel Tommy.

Hostel Tommy's service exceeds my expectation. Encountered problems regarding my flight but still accommodated me the best possible way and I thank you so much for that. Sir Tommy and all the staff are friendly and kind. They treat their guests as part of their family and are willing to go the extra mile just to provide excellent service. Aside from that, the location is great. Just a walking distance to most of the tourist spots, subway and bus stop. Will definitely come back here.

The location is within walking distance to popular places (3 palaces, Insadong, Bukchon Hanok Village, temple, shrine). The staff was really nice to us, and provided all info we asked for. The price was pretty good for central Seoul stay. The only downside was the bed. It was kinda hard for us. Except for the bed, everything else was perfect. Thumbs up.

We got the family room which is good for 4 pax and was very pleased with the size. It is very clean. Bathroom has a steady supply of hot and cold water. Big towels are not provided but you can ask from them. What you can find in the bathrooms are towels as big as the kitchen towels. You can have it replaced in the front desk, every day, if you want. Electric sockets are also abundant including in the bunk bed. I think we have a total of 8, I guess. I did not really count. But what I can say is that we did not have to fight who will get to charge our gadgets first. The bed is really comfortable! I wish I can have that kind of bed at home hehehe. The room is also provided with a mini fridge and a hair dryer. The hostel is also kind to provide instructions in English. The room has heated floors! It was my first time to experience having one and arriving on a temperature of 1 degree celsius, heated floors saved the day!

Hostel Tommy’s location is very strategic. It can easily be accessed via Bus 6011 from Incheon airport, which has a travel time of more or less 1 hour and 20 mins. It cost 10,000 (adult) and 8,000 (kid). The subway near Tommy Hostel consists of 3 lines ( Line 1,3,5) making it easier to commute. The subway exit 7 is the easiest way to get to the hostel. It also a walking distance to Insadong, the palaces and Bokchon Hanok village. There is a convenience store just below the hostel, and a supermarket around 10 meters. Restaurants are also abundant in the area
