Great location - nothing else is good. ”
Location
The location is excellent, however the cleanliness and condition of the single room I was in was pretty terrible. I spent my first night sneezing uncontrollably as it hadn't been dusted in quite a while and I have dust allergies. The shared bathroom was definitely the worst. The door was rotting at the bottom with a big hole in it, and I don't even want to guess the last time it was cleaned. The shower was a hose attached to the sink. Toilet paper was not provided. It certainly wasn't cleaned the three days I was there. The bathroom was approx 1.25m by 1m and as far as I know this was for use for everyone on the fifth floor. Staff knew I was arriving late, yet didn't tell me I'd have to ring when I got there. As I didn't have a Korean number I was stuck outside at 1am until a lodger happened to come out for a cigarette and kindly phoned the manager for me. Breakfast is bread / toast with jam and then noodles with juice or coffee. If you're looking for a place to mingle with other travelers this is not the place for you. I didn't meet one other guest apart from the smoker on the first night. Apart from the location, there really is nothing positive about this place. I've stayed in hostels around the world and this is definitely down there with the worst I'm afraid to say :(

Just to sleep”
Budget, near restaurants, near subway
Just stay one night because we had to be at nearby Donghwa Duty Free Shopping at 8 am the next morning to join a tour. Very small room. Windowless room and bathroom. With the price actually can stay a better place than this hostel. Breakfast just bread with jam.
