    Very Good, Hospitable Staff, Clean Rooms.”

    Very good accomodation and a bang for your buck accomodation. I met lots of different people some of which became friends. The staff members were very nice, laidback, and accomodating. Staff member Marlo was very nice, and even spent a lot of time with us even after her shift has finished. I would stay in this guesthouse again when I go back to Korea and stay at Hongdae. Keep up the good work! 🥰😊

    Excellent”

    Takes quite a bit of walking from subway exit 2 but the directions was on point so it was easy to locate. The only downside is there's no elevator so I struggled to carry my 20kg luggage up the stairs to my room in the 3/F. In-room safe box didn't have a LOCK so there's no point of storing my laptop and other valuables in there. Also, I see no hairdryer. Other than that everything's good if not great. Highly recommended for budget travelers/backpackers.

    I am thankful that my room was upgraded for free. I didn't expect that. The staff are nice and accommodating. The place is a bit far from the station but for those people who enjoy walking, just like me, you will surely like the place. The hostel is in a peaceful area.

    If you are looking for a place to just sleep for a night then this place is ok, but do not expect anything else. The area to hang around and chill is toooo small located at the basement and you can hear everyone's noise.

    Not bad”

    My only/main issue is that the check out time on agoda is listed as 12 but when i arrived i was given a list of rules, one of them being that the check out is 11am and there's a 10,000W fee for overstaying. Other than that disappointment it was fine. It's in a quiet area, quite far from the party area of Hongdae but close enough to the shops and station and everything seemed clean and spacious. Not my favourite hostel but i'd definitely stay there again as the price was great.

    Nothing special”

    Not really sure as to why this hostel has a lot of positive reviews. Location is 15-20-min walk to the nearest MTR (could be a bit of a problem if you have too many luggages), reception area was very untidy. Room was just okay for sleeping, nothing more, nothing less (bed was very hard & the floors were squeaking). Staff were okay esp. Marjo (i think that’s her name), she was super nice. But all in all, just 5 stars for Marjo, the rest - 1 star.

    If you have little more money, better to stay in another hostel”

    we stay for two days. when we check in, the staff didnt ask us about our passport or booking refference, they just let us go to our room and they didnt give us room key so we felt uncomfortable about that and we are so worry about safetiness of our luggage. Heater room didnt work, but lucky the blanket was thick so we could still sleep comfortably. I dont recommend you stay here at winter.

    Great staff and awesome location! ”

    I enjoyed my stay in this guesthouse!! Location is excellent. Situated in a quiet and safe neighborhood but walking distance to the restaurants and bars of the main streets. Marlo, one of the staff there, helped me a lot during my stay. She answered all my questions and recommended many restaurants and activities I can try out. She also taught me basic korean languange and made sure I got all what I needed to be comfortable during my stay. Truly made my stay here more fun and memorable! Will book here again when I come back.
