    good location, noisy”

    location is great, on a very lively street. check in process was good, nice staff. wifi works on and off. breakfast was extremely poor even for a hostel, only bread then juice/tea/coffee. Have to take issue with the noise. Other guests were generally rude, frequently slamming doors and not respecting supposed quiet times at night. While this isnt necessarily the hostels fault, having loud doors and a really annoying beeping noise every time the main door opens and closes is pretty stupid. Dont stay here if you like quiet/sleep

    Homey Feels”

    Before I arrived I told them that I will come in very late at night, I wanted to send that notification because it said the reception is only open till 10PM - to my surprise the staff waited for our arrival till late at night and assisted us with check in and some stuff we need to know. The staff are all accommodating, the place has a very homey feel. It's located near the subway station and there are a lot of food choices to eat since it's like a university area that are open till late night. I am definitely booking this place again. It's a plus that the receptionist are both Filipino. Thanks for a wonderful stay! :)

    Great Place!”

    I had an amazing experience here. Got a great deal to start out with and I had nothing to complain about about the whole experience. Oscar is an awesome dude and will help you out with anything you need. Bedroom, sheets, bathroom, and kitchen were all clean. They have free bread and coffee, so not too much of a breakfast, but better than nothing. You can buy your own food and cook it there if you want though. If you're in Hongdae to party, this is your place to go. It's surrounded by bars and clubs so it can get a little loud outside but not too bad. If you aren't too picky it won't be a problem

    Staff, location, hospitable

    It was great. We had a mishap with the reservation since they had no rooms available for some of the days we booked (site mishap) but mamas and papas staff did their best to accommodate us and make us comfortable. They made the trip a success and I don't regret booking and staying with them at all. They showed us some great places to eat like base camp and they took us out to dinner. Being able to make breakfast in the morning was great. It had a great home vibe. My friend that accompanied me for her first time in Korea felt she got the real experience and felt we stayed at the perfect place to get to know the local point of view, night life and a good hospitable experience. I'd definitely come back again. Thank you for everything, l loved my stay. It's not the best but I feel it was kinda perfect.
