            Overall great value for money”

            Location

            This hostel is located less than a five minute walk to the metro, and about a five minute walk to the Myeong-dong shopping district. The room was small, but had all the essentials. There was no smell of smoke and the bed wasn't as hard as I had expected. The floor heater kept the room at a comfortable temperature, with plenty of hot water for a shower. The only odd thing missing was a bathroom sink, which led hand washing/brushing teeth bent over in the tub. Overall, this was one of the best value for money rooms we've stayed in while visiting Seoul. Highly recommend!

            Nice and cozy hostel”

            Great location and pleasant staff

            The hostel was easy to find. It was right behind Astoria Hotel about a hundred meters from the main road (no need to climb up!) and there was a police station at the corner so it was safe for a first-time solo female traveler like me. The reception area was small and cozy, the place smelled really nice, and the guy at the front desk was pleasant and friendly. My room was on the third floor and they had no elevator, but the guy from the front desk helped me bring my suitcase up to my room. I had the upper bunk in the dorm room and the steps were so narrow that it sort of hurt to climb up and down, but other than that, the room was quite cozy. I loved the fact that the bathroom was within the dorm room and not outside of our room. Staying at this hostel erased any fear I had of staying in a dorm room (this was my first hostel/dorm)! There was free breakfast of toast, cup noodles, tea and coffee at the lounge on the fourth floor where you can hang out with the other guests. The wifi connection was good. They had one router per floor, I think. There were convenience stores nearby. The hostel was manned by honest people--I left my eyeglasses and headband at the hostel, and I just emailed them about it, and I came back for it the next day. I would still stay at this hostel if I get to visit Seoul again.

            A very clean hostel ”

            Near to Myeong-dong

            Stayed at this hostel for 2 nights.Love this hostel!Very clean, and there is a very special nice smell in the hostel. We slept very well for the 2 nights. However, i do not like their attached bathroom because it was very cold in the winter and it made me feel lazy to go to the bathroom. It is about 10 minutes walk to the Myeong-dong main street, very convenient. The staffs there are also very helpful and they are able to talk fluent English. They do provide simple free breakfast too!

Staffs are really nice, and really helpful. Their English is really good compared to other Korean's people. I met three staffs there, all of them were nice. But there's one minus point, one of the staff keep on waking-up late for 2 days, so that breakfast is also late. Other guests are also complaining about this. WiFi is really fast, TV is good. They also offer simple breakfast (bread and instant noodle, coffee) in the 4th floor. The minus point is that the room is very small, and the bathroom has no sink.

            Best location

            If you are looking for budget accommodation I strongly recommend this hostel. You have your own bathroom which you do not need to share with other people. Staff are friendly. Even though their english is not 100% perfect but they are still willing to help and guide you about places to visit in Seoul. You get to refill your water which mean you save money from buying drinking water at shops. The location is so close to Myeong-Dong, just a few minutes walk. Overall it's a great location to all public transportation, you have Chungmuro and Myeong Dong train station close-by. Hanok Village is also a few minutes walk from the hostel. Overall, I enjoy staying at that hostel. The owner of the hostel is super friendly too =)

            Decent location, suitable for a first visit”

            Staff, location, price

            Its easy to find the hotel. Just continue straight ahead after leaving the subway, and it is located on your left at the police station. Its close proximity to the Myeong-Dong subway station is great, but that particular station requires you to change train once or twice since its not a central hub. The hotel was great. The manager told me upon arrival that they accidentally rented out my bunkbed, so I got to stay in the suite instead which was a huge improvement. The bathtub is small, and all but one tv channel is in Korean. Other than that, the room was clean, room service was present every day and the staff was super friendly and accommodating. I can definitely recommend this hotel to travelers looking for a convenient hotel close to a subway station, for easy access to the city.

            rooms are all tidy and clean,staff is fantastic and help whenever they can and its 2 from next underground station

            i stayed at ips lounge hostel for more than a week trying to find a flat to stay for a longer term. i didn't knew anyone when i arrived but the people who work here are very friendly and helped me with everything. if you have a problem just ask one of them and they will try everything to help you. it's a bit hidden in a side street but when you found it,you will feel like home. its maybe 200 metres away from chungmuro station,and so its not far to the most sights of seoul. to myeongdong,where you can go shopping and where many restaurants are,its about 10 minutes to walk or one station away by underground and to namdaemun market its just two stations. theres is a place in the upper floor where bread,jam,coffee and korean noodles are prepared and it has two water donations. the hostel is very new and the rooms get cleaned everyday. i really enjoyed staying here and will come back at the end of my time in seoul.i can just recommend it and to find it,just call them and they gonna help you.

            Strategically located, affordable Seoul experience”

            Very very near Chungmuro station, Namsan Cable car/Seoul Tower, Korea House, Catholic Cathedral and Myeongdong shopping!

            The room is 4 meters x 3 meters. On the right side is the bathroom door just near your bed. We’re not the type who would worry much about the size of the room so long as it is clean. White linens covered the bed, no stinky smell and flying insects .The air-condition worked perfectly to give you a restful night in a comfortable but not so soft bed. Wifi works and it’s fast. They clean the room everyday when we’re gone. Make sure to leave the key behind so they’ll know they can clean it. The bathroom? well we didn’t pay for a luxury hotel so, it looks just like an ordinary bathroom that doesn’t stress us out when we need to go. Yes, there’s no sink, toothbrush is done on the tub and not a deal breaker to us. Bring your own towel, theirs is small. The water heater is perfect and jars of body wash and shampoo are provided to complete simple routines of vanity. Tooth brush and toothpaste are not provided, but since we’re used to bringing our own, that was not a problem. TV (not flat screen) and Ref are provided. This place is the most practical and convenient place to stay In Seoul. About a minute walk from Chungmuro subway, convenience store (GS25 and Ministop) and restaurants. For coffee drinkers whether in the morning or at night time, Paris Baguette is just right beside the Police station, which makes it safer for us to go out at 9:30 PM, when the PB bakeshop offers 50% off on pastries. We would highly recommend IPS to those Practical tourist travelers. Not only that the place is inexpensive and clean, but it can save a lot in terms of taxi fares, because almost everything is accessible by walking. If you are a tourist though and you intend to waste your time sleeping and relaxing in a hotel, IPS Lounge is not a place for you, Astoria Plaza which is right in front of IPS is available at a cost.

            I highly recommend this place if you want to visit seoul. The place was near to all the tourist attractions. Myeongdong street was few blocks away from the hostel. You just cross the street and walk few meters and you will get to myeongdong street. The breakfast was nice.you can make your toast and even cook an egg in their dining. The room was comfortable and has its own wifi. The staffs were nice and approachable. They were helpful. They can communicate also in english that is why it was easier for us to asked question about directions. Chungmuro station was few meters aways from the hostel that is why it became easier for us to use their subway and bus. If you are on a budget then I highly recommend this place. I will definitely booked this place when I return to Seoul.

Staffs are friendly and helpful!they could speak good mandarin and english!! The only not so good is the room is a bit small. But well, with the rate of stay we are paying,this is a very good deal!

            Your Go-To Guesthouse at Myeongdong Area”

            Helpful & friendly staff, clean surroundings, comfortable room

            My friend and I (both ladies), got ourselves a good deal considering our last minute plan to come to Korea for New Year 2015. It was an easy find from the airport to Chungmuro station. Five minutes walk and we found ourselves at the guesthouse. The guesthouse have heated flooring so it was nicely warm as we got in especially when the weather was low throughout (-9c to 2c). The room is small and yet clean which comes with its own toilet. There's also a small tv with cable, hair dryer, clothes hanger, two small towel (changed daily), a telephone and a small fridge. The bed is very comfortable covered in duvet unlike other backpackers which only provide you a thin mattress double decker bed. There's a small lounge area at the fourth floor provided with a heater, computer, toaster, microwave, water cooler, and sink with utensils for light usage. The staffs were very helpful with friendly personality so it was a nice stay for us as they helped with places we ought to go to in Seoul during our 4 days stay. Considering the low price that we paid for, this is a rare great find! Do check this small and yet quaint guesthouse if you intend to stay at Myeongdong area.

The location is really convenient, easy access, very close to MyeongDong. The subway station is just 3 mins walk from the hostel. Besides there's a family mart (24/7) and famous bakery.

            Economical

            we stayed there from 25th may to 31st may 2012 for a family of 4 (2 rooms) location: right behind astoria hotel. direction instruction to astoria hotel will be the same. direction: (1) from chungmuro exit 4, proceed ahead, turn left into alley after a small police “station” and before astoria hotel. turn right into alley behind astoria hotel. about 5 minutes. (2) from sejong hotel, when facing n tower (namsan) with sejong hotel behind you, look left and you should be able to see astoria hotel; but on opposite side. walk along sejong hotel street towards astoria hotel, cross the street from outback steakhouse intersection to kia motor shop on opposite . from kia motor shop cross the intersection to the opposite side (of sejong hotel). passing hana bank, and turn right to a small side street before astoria hotel, turn left into alley behind astoria hotel. about 8 minutes. our search for hotel is based on 2 factors. location and budget. if this 2 factors are your main criteria, ips lounge hostel is perfect for tourist who will spend most of their time outside of hotel and using the room for sole purpose of resting only; which is the case for us. the hotel is about 5 minutes walking distance away from chungmuro subway station which serves lines 3 and 4 of seoul metro subway. bus stop is at the entrance of entrance of chungmuro as well. the no2 will take you directly to seoul n tower from here (and back). from hotel, it is about 10 minutes walking distance to both myeondong / namdaemun shopping area. (to sejong hotel direction) while dongdaemun is 2 subway station away (from chungmuro). self serving breakfast is available at their “food lounge” which is located at upper-most 4th floor until 10am, but flexible enough to extend the hours which has happened to us. the breakfast is standard everyday consist of coffee/tea, jam/bread and instant cup noodle. the hotel does not equip with any elevator, and stairway/case to upper floors are narrow.

            ips lounge was a cute hostel, albeit a little small. the staff were young and friendly, and gave directions for where we wanted to go. the room itself is small, and the bathroom isn't much. you need to bring your own amenities, like toothpaste and shampoo. the rooms get cleaned everyday, and there is a 'lounge' on the top floor where you can use the computer and eat breakfast (toast or cup ramen). the hostel is conveniently located in myeongdong, one of my favourite areas in seoul!

            Great location, great staff!”

            Free wifi, walking distance to myeongdong, breakfast provided

            The hotel is located about 5-7 minutes walk to myeongdong shopping area. Definitely a good bargain if you only need a room to sleep, store your shopping purchases and shower. The staff are really helpful, they will kindly help you to carry the luggage to your room (no elevators, there are 3 floors) and they allow you to store your luggage and use the lounge area while waiting for your flight even after you check out. There are bread, coffee, tea and cup noodles provided at all times at the lounge. The wifi connection is one of the strongest I've ever had during my stay in Seoul. They do have a computer in the lounge as well should you need to use one. The room is rather small, just enough to fit a queen size bed, table, and my 2 big luggages. The mattress is slightly on the hard side, but I find it to be acceptable. The toilet has no sink, but the hot water works perfectly fine (which I think is very important). They do clean your room everyday. The hotel is also located about 5 minutes walk to the airport limousine station, so it's a breeze to go to incheon and gimpo airport. Other than that, there is also Myeongdong Catholic church located within 5 minutes of walk. I will definitely recommend this hotel for those who are on a budget and those who want to save your money for shopping purposes.

            We stayed here for 7 nights and then one more. On the plus sides, the room was functional (small as always in Seoul) and very clean. There was free breakfast in the mornings esp. eggs and cereal / milk and coffee, toast, jam. The staff was very polite although we didn't interact with them much. The location is very central and it will save you a lot of commute time to visit Seoul! We are not too picky guests but here are some things you might want to know on the "cons" if any. The bed was quite hard (we didn't mind too much), and there is indeed no sink in the ensuite bathroom but you just use the bathtub, which you get used to quite quickly haha. The mattress was a bit noisy. Otherwise, we got to use the laundry machine for free which was very handy. A/C a must. The kitchen had one stove and all the gear, and was always super clean. It was very quiet all the time! Not the comfiest beds, but we liked the peace and felt at home. Top location.
