              Rooms are not clean everyday however, it is not major issue because from the price, you roughly know the standard. It is without lift and you can have free cloths washing using their common washing machine. An old lady (i believe is the owner) trying her best to help me out and understand what i need from her. Suggest you use a translator app to ease your communication.

Because my flight delayed a lot, I cannot make it to check-in on 11pm. The staff still waited for me til midnight. Thanks so much. Basically, it good enough for his price!

              I enjoyed my short stay at JC Inn. It was clean and convenient (a very short distance to the subway, Dongguk University, and the park around Seoul Tower), and the staff were very helpful, despite their limited English. The only minor issue I had was not enough breakfast, which was very simple. However, for the money it was definitely a place I would go back to, and recommend it to others.

              This was our first visit to Seoul and we were delighted with our choice of the JC Inn. This is more of a Motel than a Hostel and the older lady on reception does not speak any English but we loved it here. It is just minutes from the Dongguk University Metro station (exit 2, walk straight and turn left at GS25. GS25 a convenience store is right opposite for water and snacks and there are plenty of coffee shops, bakeries and Korean restaurants just minutes away. it is also very easy to walk to Dongdaemen Night Market and design Plaza. The rooms are small and the beds were a bit hard for us but we would use this again as a base to get around Seoul. The hostels wifi only works in the small kitchen area or downstairs room but in our room we could pick up iptime a free community wifi network which was extreemely fast (30gb).

              I am extremely satisfied about my stay at JC Inn. The staff were friendly, especially the elderly woman who had helped us alot during our trip in Seoul, though there were language barrier but she still tried her best to help us out. The room was spacious to accomodate us (2 girls), breakfast was included during the stay and the location of the Hostel was near to the Subway station @ Donguk University. Hence, travelling wise was very convenient. There are shophouses and stalls which sell authentic korean dishes and there is a convenient store located just right outside the hostel. So, fred not if you're feeling hungry late at night. Overall, it was a good stay and will definitely go back again if I'm to visit korea next time! (:

              Choosing to stay at this hotel was the best choice I made, most of the reviews said were true. They provide simple breakfast like bread and coffee or tea which is actually not included in the package. The lady at the counter was very accommodating even if she could not speak English, but every time I need something, she will automatically try to understand and give what we need or looking for. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my other friends who will visit Seoul.

              The room is very clean though the toilet is quite small. The mattress and quilt of the bed are very comfortable. The layout of the room is good as well. Most importantly, the inn is accessible to the subway station; about 4 minutes walk with no slopes. As such, it makes moving much easier for travellers who have to drag their luggages to the inn.Walking to Dongdaemun shopping distrct is about 10 minutes walk only. The staff, SooKim is friendly, helpful and honest. I left my smartpone at the reception & discovered it an hour later. She kept it and returned to me when I checked with her. It is indeed a value-for-money inn which I will strongly recommend it to anyone who wish to stay at Dongdaemun area.

              It was our first time to vist Seoul after we visited Busan for our holiday in south Korea. The thing that I liked the most from this hostel was it's very very close to Dongguk University Station. You just have to find exit 2, and go straight. Besides, it was in the center of the city so that it made us very easy to discover places in Seoul such us Namdaemun market, Myeong-dong Street, Dongdaemun market, Gwanghwamun Square, etc. After all, highly recommended.

              The bedroom was good and the staff was good.
              The hotel is located in a convenient location. Come out from exit 2 walk straight and turn left when you see a GS25 convenience stall. Its barely a 10 min walk away from the subway station without any hills to contend with. The check in and check out etiquette was hassle free which basically relies on common sense on saving electricity. The room was big enough for a solo traveler. Above all, the staff was friendly and always eager to help even if they were not good at English. They are one of the nicest people I have ever met in Seoul. They allowed me to keep their luggage in Seoul when I was traveling out of Seoul even though they were not obliged to do so. On a side note, even though the breakfast was not much to boast about and only consisted of toast and coffee, I would still recommend it to other solo travelers who are stopping Seoul.
