    The room is extremely comfortable and the resources are very accessible. The owner is also very kind - he always makes sure that I am doing okay and that I have an umbrella on days that it might rain. The location is very convenient as well - a five-minute walk to the bustling main Sinchon plaza, but still quiet and peaceful. Reliable wifi also made it possible to get a lot of work done in house.

    The owner “Mr. Richard” is fluent in English and very accommodating. Location is an advantage and the cleanliness. Kitchen area for dining should be improve or expand as no enough space if all will come down at the same time. All in all the hostel is worth for money. Will surely come back and recommend to all my friends who wants to visit Seoul.

    Location, Service, Price

    I'm writing for my mom and aunt, two senior ladies who stayed in Oppa first week of November. I booked this hostel because I read that the owner, Richard is really helpful and true enough, he even helped me communicate with my mom through wechat as the oldies didn't know how. He also tried to keep me updated with their status whenever he can, despite his busy schedule. Hope I'd be able to go back to Korea and stay in Oppa soon.

    Oppa Hostel is good for first timers like us...”

    Location was awesome - proximity to the bus and trains. Host - Richard was very helpful in answering questions and friendly. Room Condition - clean, strong wifi connection and comfortable.

    Overall, it was very good. We dont want anything fancy but Oppa met the basic needs of travelers like us. Clean room with good wifi. Advantage is having an elevator so you dont have to drag your luggages through the stairs. Richard was also friendly and helpful during our stay. We would visit again next year and we would certainly stay here again. Warning though... there is a steep hill of around 2 mins walk going to his place. It is good exercise!

    Location. Value for money. The owner is very accommodating and can understand and speak English

    Everything that you will need in a hostel is already there. It also has great location that is near the subway bus stop, convenience stores, etc. The owner (Richard Choi) is also very accommodating and he will lift most of your luggage(s) since the hostel is on the 4th floor and there is no elevator. This hostel is a highly recommended one and will definitely come back. Cheers, Richard!

    Richard from OPPA Hostel is one of the most accommodating and friendly host I've met. Despite us coming in late due to diversion of flight, he allowed us to check-in at past 1:00am. The room has all the expected amenities like hot shower, TV, cold and hot drinking water, etc. OPPA Hostel is also just a 5-minute walk from Ewha Women's University station.

    location location location. also the owner richard was super friendly and helpful in organizing the dmz/jsa tour. plenty of eateries, roadside stalls and quaint cafes nearby.

    Very comfortable. Facilities were readily available and also nearby restaurants/cafe are open till late for late night snacks. Do check out the bbq 8 flavor pork restaurant near the Sinchon mrt, yummy. Plenty of convenience stores also and a cat cafe to chill out in. For those taking the airport bus, the stops are within walking distances to the hostel. Richard the owner was very friendly and helpful.. (tho does not appear to sleep at all since he seems to be awake before everyone else). He gave good advice on booking the dmz tours and also getting to nami island. Would pop by oppa hostel again on next visit to Seoul.

    We booked two deluxe rooms which were with a nice private bathroom with shower. The location was absolutely great. Just 5 minutes away from the metro station Sinchon where line 2 stops. One metro stop away from the centrum of Hongdae. Richard is an amazing host. He helped us a lot, for example by raising the temperature of the heater in our room, as we were quite cold because it was - 13°C outside when we arrived. He was also very present by simply wishing us good night and helping us by giving directions to some attractions. So we certainly recommend you to stay here to have an amazing time in Seoul.

    We've stayed for 8 nights. The room ( own bathroom) is great with a nice shower. The hostel is near the subway (5 min. walk) Richard is very kind and helpful. The day we arrived was very cold, we were not used to that, so he turned the heat up, just to make the room more comfortable. And last and but not least, there is an elevator (and that means a lot when you have been walking all day) I really recommend this hostel. Thank you Richard!
