Here is a review. Read it, then book at Pencil 5.”
DJ, the sleep, the neighborhood
Location: So-so. Transit stops at a very inconvenient hour, so making it back to the hostel takes quite a while. It can be considered to be at the outskirts of Seoul. So depending on what you are looking for, it is next to a mountain (hiking), it has a wonderful local market/ local food market and various excellent restaurants, shopping? maybe not as cheap as Dondaemun, but it is cheap. Night life? Look around and find a tourist, you are probably that one tourist. So local atmosphere, with bars, pubs, shoju tents, street food. What is this location? It has everything you would want to find in Seoul all in 1 day. People: In this area, people are kind, people like to help you, talk to you. And I'm not just talking about the hostel, which DJ was really cool, but I'm talking about the neighborhood. This is a place where you get to experience Seoul without the big city, quick paced, tourist destination kind of feel. Cleanliness: Hostel was clean. Bathrooms are a bit small, so if you are 6ft something, you'll have to learn to adapt. Overall: Yeah, I would stay here again.

My stay at Pencil 5 Seoul was very pleasant. Staff was very friendly DJ and CJ :). They always give me tips like what's the best mode of transportation should I take when going to my planned itinerary(to save money :) ..and oh.. I love the way they cook...yummy food.. If I will come back in South Korea, I will definitely stay here again.. Thanks Pencil 5.

I loving this place for good. ”
Game machine, super friendly mood, free lunch
I really enjoyed the games in the common area. 400 different classic games remind me of,, when i was young =) like bubble bubble, street fighter, wonder boy, tetris. They almost everyday provide free Korean food for lunch, so staffs and the owner treated me as a family members. Easy to go to Downtown in Seoul and the perfect location from Incheon Airport taking Airport Bus or Metro line. It was really amazing good hospitality for me, and the Bibibab lunch was the best =) Thank you so much, i will definitely visit here again for the next chance. Until then wish you all so much happiness and good luck.

The best hostel that I had stayed in Seoul”
Good location, cleaniness, friendly and helpful owner & staff
The location of the hostel is near to the subway, the rooms are clean and the people I met at the common area were fun to be with. The owner also made us Korean food for lunch. My favourite is bimbimbap on Weds. I'll come back when I travel to Seoul again! Thanks DJ and the people at Pencil!
