              Only 3-5mins walking from subway(direct line from the airport ), good location,reasonable price,new and clean, good staff

              The hotel located near Gongdeok Subway station where is the center of subway lines,it's easy for the travelers. The hotel provided us a verry good accommodation(i love a little kicthen there) the staff was very nice and can speak English,Chinese ,we've got good info: for nice places,nice foods,and nice activities. New and clean and very pretty color. Rooms are a bit small but it was money. Has been wrapped in towels, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, drinking water is not what I need. People who look cute and very friendly. What if I do I will find out soon. I do not fear it. There is also information on where to eat, because the journey is very near the train station. It is a station in the middle with you wherever you go. The kitchen includes coffee, milk, bread, snack time, and that was good.

              Very bad experience seriously.”

              It’s my first time to feel that kind of uncomfortable. My check in time was in the night, nobody there and he just left my key on the table with a note on it,the note is my name. When I go to the room, my door is totally opened I don’t know why, the room was so dirty full of dirt , washroom mirror also dirty like they only clean the trash can everyday. And the second day I was going to left my key in the hostel, he doesn’t allow me to do that, I guess just because he was so busy and he can rarely come to watch the hostel. This night I went back to the room, they left 4 towels outside windows, which was so dirrrrty, I don’t know that was mine, finally I found out because when I go into the room I found they have clean the trash can and also towels, I mean if they want me to have a new and clean towel why don’t they just leave the towel in the room but choose to put the towel on the dirty windows ??? I lived here for 2 nights and only saw the boss 3times, and he is not nice, check out is also nobody there, really bad experience.

              I was a solo traveler when i visit Seoul and stayed at Naru House and i had a great time there. Location was good because the place is easy to find and only took 7 minutes walk to the nearest subway station and there's also bus station nearby so you can catch your bus to the airport easily. There's a lot of restaurant, convenience store, drug store and cafe near by so have everything you need covered. I highly recommended this place if you on budget. If i had a chance to visit Seoul again i will stay in this place.

              it was overall great stay in city hostel. the 2 staff were very friendly and willing to help. i must express my gratitude to leon who initiated to give us a lift to the subway lift exit (about 4 minutes driving distance but quite a distance if we were have to walk in a drizzling morning,with lots of luggage). the only feedback is we have to wait for a while for hot shower and the staircases are very narrow. Other than that, i felt good and happy during my stay in city hostel.

              Clean, simple, comfortable

              We checked in late at night, but the staff member that greeted us was very friendly, and immediately had us sit down out of the cold and gave us each a warm drink. He confirmed our details which took what seemed like only seconds, and then chatted with us about our sightseeing plans, and was very friendly and helpful. My wife was cold, and he let us have the heat lamp from the main area to take and use in our bedroom while we slept. Couldn't have been more accommodating or nice to us, we really enjoyed the staff and our stay. Simple, affordable accommodation. A great value for the money if all you plan on doing is relaxing a bit, and sleeping.

              Even though the place is close to the subway entrance, the subway hall is so big that you need to walk for 10 minutes to get to the airport express. The room is not big but cozy. The bath room make the room a little bit damp. Other then that, this is a relatively good hotel.

              I just want to share my great memory in Korea with many people during my visit. I'm from USA. My Korean friend booked this hostel for me and took me lots of fantastic places in Seoul during my visit. I really was impressed with their hospitality in this hostel when I just arrived there. and it was so easy to access to the downtown. If I have a chance to go to Korea again, I'll gladly visit this hostel again.I hope we will meet again! It was nice trip thanks to you guys.

              I had a wonderful experience here. Leo was so helpful and bent over backwards to help me. Also, the location is a bit hard to find, but it is really convenient to many places in Seoul. I think it would be a great base for sightseeing. The bed was very firm, and the pillows were very fluffy. The neighborhood is also really interesting.

              Only 3-5mins walking from subway(direct line from the airport ), good location,reasonable price,new and clean, good staff

              The hotel located near Gongdeok Subway station where is the center of subway lines,it's easy for the travelers. The hotel provided us a verry good accommodation(i love a little kicthen there) the staff was very nice and can speak English,Chinese ,we've got good info: for nice places,nice foods,and nice activities. New and clean and very pretty color. Rooms are a bit small but it was money. Has been wrapped in towels, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, drinking water is not what I need. People who look cute and very friendly. What if I do I will find out soon. I do not fear it. There is also information on where to eat, because the journey is very near the train station. It is a station in the middle with you wherever you go. The kitchen includes coffee, milk, bread, snack time, and that was good.

              Very bad experience seriously.”

              It’s my first time to feel that kind of uncomfortable. My check in time was in the night, nobody there and he just left my key on the table with a note on it,the note is my name. When I go to the room, my door is totally opened I don’t know why, the room was so dirty full of dirt , washroom mirror also dirty like they only clean the trash can everyday. And the second day I was going to left my key in the hostel, he doesn’t allow me to do that, I guess just because he was so busy and he can rarely come to watch the hostel. This night I went back to the room, they left 4 towels outside windows, which was so dirrrrty, I don’t know that was mine, finally I found out because when I go into the room I found they have clean the trash can and also towels, I mean if they want me to have a new and clean towel why don’t they just leave the towel in the room but choose to put the towel on the dirty windows ??? I lived here for 2 nights and only saw the boss 3times, and he is not nice, check out is also nobody there, really bad experience.

              I was a solo traveler when i visit Seoul and stayed at Naru House and i had a great time there. Location was good because the place is easy to find and only took 7 minutes walk to the nearest subway station and there's also bus station nearby so you can catch your bus to the airport easily. There's a lot of restaurant, convenience store, drug store and cafe near by so have everything you need covered. I highly recommended this place if you on budget. If i had a chance to visit Seoul again i will stay in this place.

              it was overall great stay in city hostel. the 2 staff were very friendly and willing to help. i must express my gratitude to leon who initiated to give us a lift to the subway lift exit (about 4 minutes driving distance but quite a distance if we were have to walk in a drizzling morning,with lots of luggage). the only feedback is we have to wait for a while for hot shower and the staircases are very narrow. Other than that, i felt good and happy during my stay in city hostel.

              We checked in late at night, but the staff member that greeted us was very friendly, and immediately had us sit down out of the cold and gave us each a warm drink. He confirmed our details which took what seemed like only seconds, and then chatted with us about our sightseeing plans, and was very friendly and helpful. My wife was cold, and he let us have the heat lamp from the main area to take and use in our bedroom while we slept. Couldn't have been more accommodating or nice to us, we really enjoyed the staff and our stay. Simple, affordable accommodation. A great value for the money if all you plan on doing is relaxing a bit, and sleeping.
