Memorable stay at Hostel Vanilla 1”
When they say home away from home, they MEAN it. Even before arriving in Seoul, Soo Hee has already been giving me tips and advices (airport buses, tour bookings). She and Ilir were extremely helpful during our 5 day stay there. They would gladly give tips on how to go to certain places such as Nami Island and Itaewon so we wouldn't have to book tour agencies aside from the DMZ tour. (They also helped with that! 😊) The location of the place was fantastic. Just a short walk from the airport bus stops as well as exit 1 of dongdaemun station. It's perfect for a first time traveler to Seoul. The place was lovely and homey. The amenities were complete and they replace the towels daily. The size of the room may be a bit smaller than usual but the area of the room is well thought out. Everything just works. We also loved the daily breakfast. We usually ate bread, cereals and noodles when we're rushing to go out but on the day that we had a few hours to spare for breakfast, we were able to cook ourselves some spam and eggs which were regularly provided. They also helped with our laundry. 🙈 Thank you so much for your hospitality, guys! Highly recommended :) We hope to see you again soon 😊

A very warm, friendly feeling. Overall clean, tidy and stylish. Giving you a home stay feeling. Ms Soo and her hushand are so nice and give many tourist advices! Good services! Though the room is a little small, it is the driving force to let you come to the common room for chat with other room mates and know each other. You can learn more different culture from other countries. Recommended!

Clean and comfortable ”
We stayed 4 nights in Vanilla, even if the room is small but comfortable, we are very like to stay there, like live in home, the house owner and her husband are very kind person, don't worry the hostel address, the house owner's husband will pick up u at Dongdaemun subway station even though at midnight, this is very memorable trip, and we can talk to different people on breakfast time. If you have any query, the house owner will give you advice. I will choose to stay Vanilla next time!

The place is very cozy, homy and cute. The owner (Soo and Ilya) were very helpful and kind. They helped us to create an itinerary and assisted me to pharmacist when I was get flu and need a medicine.The location itself is very strategic, close to subway station, bus station, dongdaemun complex shopping and just 1 station away from Hyehwa my favourite Area. :)

Almost perfect!”
Fantastic location, only minutes away from Metro station, Dongdaemun Design Plaza and fashion wholesale malls, and plenty of local food stalls/restaurants around. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean with a hint of vanilla fragrance! Due to its boutique size, noise is inevitable especially when there's late night check in or early check out before breakfast.

Clean, Convenient, friendly staff
Highly recommend for those budgeted travellers. You can easily get foods, access to convenient store in few minutes. And most importantly, few minutes to Dongdaemun exit 1 as well. We had a great time staying there.
