Convenient location and free breakfast”
We stayed here for 10 nights recently with me and my children. My husband joined us for a few nights, and it's a plus point that this hotel accommodated our request to stay in a triple room for 3 nights, twin room for 4 nights, and back to triple room in our last 3 nights. There's free breakfast for us every morning (cereals, milk, orange juice, toast with either butter or strawberry jam, and coffee), though on one occasion, the guy at the reception failed to come in early so we waited for 30 minutes more before we left for Everland on that day. But he was apologetic when we arrived at night, so that was understandable. Location was very convenient. We even walk our way to Insadong, Gwangwahmun Square, and Gyeongbukgung. Jonggak Station Exit 7 was just a few steps to the hotel, so it was really the best feature of this hotel so far, especially when you have kids who're already tired from a day of walking/exploring Seoul and other places. As for the cons, I think it'll do better if they improve their restroom/bathroom because there's some sort of smell. And since the door is directly towards the bed when you open it, you can really smell it. Also, I hope they'll fix the sinks of their restrooms because in one room (room 203), when you use the sink, the water comes out from below towards the floor of the restroom. And in room 403, the water from the sink does not easily drain. One more, I would like to suggest that they put signs in the kitchen/breakfast area about doing the dishes after the guests use them so they won't have to remind the new guests from time to time. And it will sure help if they put a kitchen towel/napkin in the breakfast area. Overall, our stay here was pleasant. Thanks Korstay!

Good location and reasonable price”
The hostel is located in the city center and closed to the Myeong-dong and free duty shopping mall. A lot of food and shops could be found in the area. Room is very tiny but not bad! Twin beds are placed in the room and no more space for other stuff. We were not satisfied with the bathroom. Hope it could be improved for next trip to Korea.

Not recommended”
Great location easy to find near subway. But room was totally out of expectation it was small, TV not function and frequently no water supply on day 2 morning and night (noon away to tour- no comments). No staff standby complaint also nobody there to assist, have to call them but no urgency to assist and fix it. We had decide move out from the horrible house, and thanks for agoda to assist and follow up.
