        The staff is kind. He even helped me to call a taxi (thank you so much for that and thank you taxi driver too for that 1.25hr drive)Room is not too big but as long as I can open my luggage in the room and then it's fine! Location is a bit hard to find at the night time but it's convenient to the subway station.

        Good value for money, would definitely come back next time!”
        Positive: small but definitely right for the price, clean, friendly staff, all necessary basic things for a solo traveler. Negative: the bed is a bit small (even for a single bed), the glass door between the shower room & the main room was not tight enough so water leaked out when I took a shower there, location was uphill & not that close to public transportation (subway). Verdict: all the negative aspects are small. This guesthouse definitely offers great value for money, and I would definitely come back if given the chance next time!

        Good !”
        A place, a price, cleanliness, kindness
        1. Several minutes after Kangnam-gu agency station. Not to mention the Konan area, it is access convenience with a subway also to Myondong or Tong dae mun. Also from Kimpo Airport, it is a subway and is about 40 minutes. Since a South Korean subway is cheap, it does not require 300 yen. Many a convenience store, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, etc. are immediately close, and very convenient. 2. Although it is budget prices, a building is also new, and it is high-class touch. Although the room is narrow and there is no bathtub truly, cleaning has gone and arrived and is very clean. Enough, if you only sleep, since there is a shared kitchen-diner. 3. The staff is kind in everybody and FRIENDLY. She also taught access from an airport. (It goes to a high-speed bus terminal station by a No. 9 line, is a No. 7 line, and is the Kangnam-gu agency station)

        The guesthouse is very comfortable. Great location, friendly staff and surrounded by supermarket, foodshops and restaurants. You can easily get food 24/7. Kimchee guesthouse is in the best location in Gangnam, just 5 minutes away from one of the entrance to subway station. The room is a little bit small but packed with all the things you need.

        Affordable Place in Gangnam”
        Kimchee Gangnam Hotel is a hidden gem. A friendly hotel especially for foreigners like me, this is the place to be if you want to stay in the prestigious neighborhood of Gangnam. Just a few meters away from Gangnam-gu station and is surrounded by office buildings. Rooms are compact compared to the other hotels I've stayed but it's worth the price especially that everything you want to see or want to go to is just near. :)

Cons- there's a lot of competition for the one shower available to 10 people in our dormitory. Overall, bc of the staff and atmosphere, I would definitely stay here again.

        It was there for the concert so I just needed a place to sleep, shower and keep my stuff so it was actually quite okay. I wasn't expecting much so nothing to complain. Although I wouldn't recommend staying in the single room during harsh winter since the boiler didn't seem to work very well in my room and the hot shower wasnt working properly.

        It’s a 10 minute walk to Gangnam-gu station, not actual gangnam area. We stayed first week of December and no other guests so this isnt really a good hostel to meet people if you’re a solo traveler. Not much to see that’s walking distance in the area.

        Tiny, dirty, noisy room.”
        Although the communal kitchen/lounge space in the basement had been thoughtfully designed and well-equipped, the room itself was unsatisfactory for the price. A tiny room with a smaller than single size bed, no space to move and really dirty. I had to kill 6 mosquitoes inside the room when I arrived and pay to hire 1 single tatty hand towel to dry myself. I got sick after staying in this place. Also, travellers should be warned that despite the Gangnam address, the local subway station is Gangnam Office Station, quite far away from central Gangnam Station. Furthermore, the guesthouse website directions tell you to look for a place called Kudos which is misleading as it no longer exists.

        Small single room. I stayed in my room the first few days after plastic surgery. Walls are very thin so you can hear everything at night. If you didn't bring a power adapter you can buy one at the front desk for 1000 won. There is a heater in the room, hair dryer, towel, and slippers. Bed was a little too hard for me. Good value for money for a small room. I recommend if you're not staying in your room recovering after plastic surgery.

        Good place close to subway and sights. Only has 1 dorm that a few long term era have completely taken over. They do the typical just change the sheets and never change the blanket on the beds, which I'm sure is why my blanket smelled like urine. Good thing it was warm in the room so I didn't need it.

        location, price, breakfast
        This is my go to hostel for overnights in Seoul. It is close to the metro and lots of things to do. Last year I probably stayed here 15-20 dates, always with good results. This was the first time I had an unpleasant experience. I got to the hostel around 8:30 pm and had to wait 20+ minutes for the front desk person, after calling them on the phone. The downstairs kitchen area was badly in need of cleaning and tidying up both in the evening, and the next morning. There wasn't any jam or juice for breakfast. I had to bang on my neighbor's door at 3 am to turn down their tv so I could sleep. Nevertheless, a one off day does not deter me. I will book them again, never fear.
