Nurliza from Malaysia
Stayed 2 nights in September 2014
Comfort + budget friendly
1. Location 2. Cleanliness 3. Comfort
Location wise, this hostel is very ideal as it is not far from a pharmacy, cafe, metro station, bus stops, convenient shops and more cute shops. Beds are comfortable and room and common area are clean enough for me and my friend to stay (we stayed for almost 5 days). Also, this place is not far away from the airport bus shuttle. I would stay here again if I were to explore Seoul again in the future :)

Liyana from Singapore
Stayed 3 nights in April 2014
Awesome - this is my third time!
Location, cost and the owner :)
Awesome! The rooms are on the ground/ 2nd floor of the owner’s house (he lives in the basement). This was my 3rd stay - the 1st was in 2011, and the 2nd was 17 - 22 Apr 2014 :) I left for a short trip to Jeju from 22 - 24 Apr. I love it because: 1. Incheon airport shuttle 6011 stops just 5 minutes away! There's a bus that goes straight to Gimpo too - 601 :) 2. Exit 3 of Hyehwa station is just 5 minutes away too. 3. So many food places nearby - cafes, bars and bakeries, local foods like kimbab, stews, and shabu-shabu, pho and ramen! 4. It's safe. There are 24hr cafes and convenience stores nearby, so it's never that quiet even past midnight. But it's never too noisy (although I'd advise bringing earplugs just in case). 5. It is so affordable to get a twin room with a private ensuite bathroom! Prolly the best price for such a convenient location in Seoul! Trust me, I checked,, and AirBnB LOL. 6. The owner, Yong, is friendly and accommodating. For our 1st stay, he let us check in really late, past midnight. The 2nd time, he let us check in early, before noon! Between our 2nd and 3rd stays, he let us leave our huge luggage at his place, and when we got back, he had already put our luggage into our room. Yong also speaks fluent English. 7. There is a water dispenser, so you never have to buy water if you have a bottle. 8. Yong has a washing machine and dryer he lets you use if you really need to do laundry. 9. All the rooms have locks. 10. No cockroaches or bedbugs! 11. It’s near shops like Innisfree, Face Shop, Banila etc, and places like ArtBox and CGV the movie theatre. The only cons I can think of (which aren’t really cons) are: 1. It can get noisy on Fri and Sat nights. But you'll be exhausted every night for sure so falling asleep will be no problem! 2. Yong provides smaller towels, not the standard large ones we’re used to. However, most hostels and even hotels in Korea only provide these, unless you stay at a 4 or 5 star.

Friendly staff & easy access
Friendly staff, nice restaurants nearby, close to shopping area and city landmarks
We have a very late check-in but we still can ask for help from the owner to ask direction for the taxi driver. The room is comfy and just a walking distance to major attractions such as Changdeukgong and Gyeongbokgung.
