Nice host, good price
Nice host, good price but the room isn't clean. Good site, there is a supermarket next to the hostel and GS25 across the street. Hostel is near the subway, walk around 3 minutes. If I travel in Korea again, I'll stay here :))

Quadraple Room with Private Bathroom
Stayed 4 nights in April 2017
Worth the money
The place is comfortable. The location as well. The room is quite small, but for the price, I think it's okay. The owner was nice and helpful. Which is a huge plus point. Too bad we aren't allowed to cook in the kitchen except during lunch. But overall, it was a nice place to stay in Seoul. Close to subway station, not too crowded and noisy, but you can find complete facilities nearby. And the fact that it was close to hongdae won't hurt either.

Accessible Accomodation; Quiet Area
Location is good, walking distance from Gwangheungchang Station. Nearby Lotte Mart in case you would like to buy something that you need. There are nearby food establishments and just in front of GS25 convenience store.

Would stay again!
Location of hostel is at Gwangheungchang station, not too far away from areas like Hongdae, Myeongdong or Seoul station, but much more peaceful and quiet which is good. There are also many good places nearby! The beds and pillow were pretty comfortable, comparable to other hotels I've stayed at. The staff were also really helpful, and helped us bring our heavy luggages down the stairs. They also allowed us to leave our luggages behind when we took a trip away from Seoul in between. Only few downside is that the bathroom is really small and since the shower is together with the toilet, everything gets wet when you take a shower. I don't think there are any facicilities for you to cook at the hostel as well. Other than that, our stay was pretty good, I wouldn't mind staying there again if I were to go back to Korea 😁

so-so
the staff are very nice but the place is not very clean, especially the toilet. There are many insects. The room is not soundproofed as well so it was kind of disturbing during our stay the place is quite convenient though
