        Recommend to stay ”

        Nice experience staying in this hostel, stuffs are all friendly, any questions you asked they will help you out. Clean room, plus definitely very convenient location if you want to shopping around in the Center area. There is a substation just walk 2 mins away. Also there is a shutter bus in front of them about 5 mins walk from location to airport. Only one thing is they could provide security box that will be better. Anything else is perfect.

        It was our second time staying here at Philstay. I stayed here with my mom. The room size is average. Good for 2 people. Bathroom was also clean. They offer free breakfast (noodles, bread, strawberry jam, cereals etc). The staff was helpful and accomodating. Location was great. Near to the train station. Maybe less than 300m only. There are restaurants, coffee shops and convenience stores nearby. Only downside is that they don't have elevator. But overall, we had a great stay! Thanks Philstay!

        Cramped Room and space”

        Bed sheets and linen are clean but room looks dirty. Room is so cramped that you hardly have space to open your luggage. Packed corridor with luggage. You have to put Won 10,000 for room key and another Won 10,000 if you need locker. It's not comfortable according to my opinion. The good side for me is the location, it is close to subway and DDP, many eateries nearby, the hostel provide simple breakfast of cheese, ham, bread, jam, juice, cereal, milk, coffee, and cup noodles. The staff will help you to carry the luggage to the upper floors.

        SPECIAL THANKS TO THE STAFF WHO ACCOMMODATED ME ALTHOUGH HE WAS ALREADY SLEEPING. I appreciate you!!! I was very tired cause my flight got delayed and also the subway was closed but the very friendly staff still woke up during wee hours and let me check in. I thought they wouldn’t accept me anymore. I was really grateful. All in all, room was spacious and also clean! And they had covers so that you’ll still have privacy. Will stay here again!

        Location is great but the stairs are another story”

        Locationwise is perfect! Incredibly love the location! Near to everything we need. Super near to subway, street food, shopping til past midnight and ddp is very near too. But climbing stairs especially when our room were in the 5th floor is another story. It is super great for budget travelers, but avoid this place if you come with elderly (unless they confirm to give you the 2nd floor room). But I will still consider this hostel. Love the surrounding.

        Great location. Near the train station (Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station Exit 8). There's a converience store (E-Mart) right across the street. And lots of nearby restaurants and coffee shops. Walking distance from Dongdaemun Plaza etc. Room is small but clean. Bathroom is also clean. Basic toiletries were provided (towel, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, face towel). There's a small chiller, TV, hair dryer, air conditioner, and small fire extinguisher. Breakfast is good. Korean cup noodles, bread/toast, strawberry/ blueberry jam, grapes, milk, cereals, butter, cheese, and ham. Available from 7-10am. Receptionists were also nice and accomodating. They can speak english. Only downside is that they don't have an elevator and our room was at 5th floor. But they offer help in carrying our luggages. Overall, we had a great stay! Will consider booking at this guesthouse again when we come back in Seoul.

Thank you so much! Breakfast was awesome. They have noodles, bread, egg, ham, peanut butter, jelly, mayonnaise, cheese and frosted cereals. For the beverage you can choose from Milk, Orange Juice and Coffee. Facilities were good. Wifi was fast. Staffs were excellent. Loved everything about Philstay. It was near so many restaurants and malls. It was also near the Dongdaemun Design Plaza. If you enjoy shopping and eating at night this place is perfect for you Thanks Philstay. :)

        Not our first time here, However, i must say c-in process was very unpleasant. We were there before 2pm, we understand c-in time is after 3pm and c-out at 11 even they hv planty of luggages kept in front of receptiom. The young man who checked in us asked us to come back at 15.00, we informed that we probably will be back very late. He said if that we must back before 23.40, otherwise no one is there. I understand they r not 24hrs service, but i also know they also hv other way to pass the room key. He didnt even give another option, im sorry i cant come back before 23.40... he starts frustrated to us, also he asked our c-out time, i wasnt sure but mentioned early no late, he said”why u are not sure anything? Is that the way talk to a guest? My husband is thai but he understand chinese quite well, so we were really upset since the first step. He is a young korean guy with glasses who can speak Chinese. However, i must say the old man who cant speak chinese was really nice and polite.

        It is located near Dongdaemun History and Culture Station. 10mins walk from the station. It has a lot of good restaurants around. The staffs are not that friendly. But they will definitely help you when you ask question. The room is too small. No cabinets inside. Enough for backpackers. Don’t expect too much. You get what you pay. The kitchen is too small for all the guests. Sometimes you have to wait to have tables available. They dont have elevators. The staffs will help you to carry your luggages. Their serve different kinds of food for breakfast. Blueberry, tomatoes, bread, ham, cheese, cereals and milk, tangerine juice, and cup noodles. They don’t clean your room daily.

        Recommend to stay ”

        Nice experience staying in this hostel, stuffs are all friendly, any questions you asked they will help you out. Clean room, plus definitely very convenient location if you want to shopping around in the Center area. There is a substation just walk 2 mins away. Also there is a shutter bus in front of them about 5 mins walk from location to airport. Only one thing is they could provide security box that will be better. Anything else is perfect.

        Worth your money”

        It was our second time staying here at Philstay. I stayed here with my mom. The room size is average. Good for 2 people. Bathroom was also clean. They offer free breakfast (noodles, bread, strawberry jam, cereals etc). The staff was helpful and accomodating. Location was great. Near to the train station. Maybe less than 300m only. There are restaurants, coffee shops and convenience stores nearby. Only downside is that they don't have elevator. But overall, we had a great stay! Thanks Philstay!

        This place is very near to the Subway station (Dongdaemun History & Culture park)., Near to DDP and some other shopping malls. The staffs are not so friendly though. Highly recommended for solo traveller.

        Cramped Room and space”

        Bed sheets and linen are clean but room looks dirty. Room is so cramped that you hardly have space to open your luggage. Packed corridor with luggage. You have to put Won 10,000 for room key and another Won 10,000 if you need locker. It's not comfortable according to my opinion. The good side for me is the location, it is close to subway and DDP, many eateries nearby, the hostel provide simple breakfast of cheese, ham, bread, jam, juice, cereal, milk, coffee, and cup noodles. The staff will help you to carry the luggage to the upper floors.

        SPECIAL THANKS TO THE STAFF WHO ACCOMMODATED ME ALTHOUGH HE WAS ALREADY SLEEPING. I appreciate you!!! I was very tired cause my flight got delayed and also the subway was closed but the very friendly staff still woke up during wee hours and let me check in. I thought they wouldn’t accept me anymore. I was really grateful. All in all, room was spacious and also clean! And they had covers so that you’ll still have privacy. Will stay here again!

        Location is great but the stairs are another story”

        Locationwise is perfect! Incredibly love the location! Near to everything we need. Super near to subway, street food, shopping til past midnight and ddp is very near too. But climbing stairs especially when our room were in the 5th floor is another story. It is super great for budget travelers, but avoid this place if you come with elderly (unless they confirm to give you the 2nd floor room). But I will still consider this hostel. Love the surrounding.

        Great location. Near the train station (Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station Exit 8). There's a converience store (E-Mart) right across the street. And lots of nearby restaurants and coffee shops. Walking distance from Dongdaemun Plaza etc. Room is small but clean. Bathroom is also clean. Basic toiletries were provided (towel, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, face towel). There's a small chiller, TV, hair dryer, air conditioner, and small fire extinguisher. Breakfast is good. Korean cup noodles, bread/toast, strawberry/ blueberry jam, grapes, milk, cereals, butter, cheese, and ham. Available from 7-10am. Receptionists were also nice and accomodating. They can speak english. Only downside is that they don't have an elevator and our room was at 5th floor. But they offer help in carrying our luggages. Overall, we had a great stay! Will consider booking at this guesthouse again when we come back in Seoul.

        We kinda got lost while locating Philstay but we received helped from 2 tourist from Hong Kong and a Korean guy. The staff (forgot his name) even picked us to reach the hostel. Thank you so much! Breakfast was awesome. They have noodles, bread, egg, ham, peanut butter, jelly, mayonnaise, cheese and frosted cereals. For the beverage you can choose from Milk, Orange Juice and Coffee. Facilities were good. Wifi was fast. Staffs were excellent. Loved everything about Philstay. It was near so many restaurants and malls. It was also near the Dongdaemun Design Plaza. If you enjoy shopping and eating at night this place is perfect for you Thanks Philstay. :)

        The Chinese receptionist was friendly and nice but the a Korean guy was rude, I think he was the boss of guest house. Simple breakfast served at 7am. Facilities were ok. Location was good and near to subway. Overall satisfy.

        One young man staff was rude. The rest are good!”

        Not our first time here, However, i must say c-in process was very unpleasant. We were there before 2pm, we understand c-in time is after 3pm and c-out at 11 even they hv planty of luggages kept in front of receptiom. The young man who checked in us asked us to come back at 15.00, we informed that we probably will be back very late. He said if that we must back before 23.40, otherwise no one is there. I understand they r not 24hrs service, but i also know they also hv other way to pass the room key. He didnt even give another option, im sorry i cant come back before 23.40... he starts frustrated to us, also he asked our c-out time, i wasnt sure but mentioned early no late, he said”why u are not sure anything? Is that the way talk to a guest? My husband is thai but he understand chinese quite well, so we were really upset since the first step. He is a young korean guy with glasses who can speak Chinese. However, i must say the old man who cant speak chinese was really nice and polite.

        It is located near Dongdaemun History and Culture Station. 10mins walk from the station. It has a lot of good restaurants around. The staffs are not that friendly. But they will definitely help you when you ask question. The room is too small. No cabinets inside. Enough for backpackers. Don’t expect too much. You get what you pay. The kitchen is too small for all the guests. Sometimes you have to wait to have tables available. They dont have elevators. The staffs will help you to carry your luggages. Their serve different kinds of food for breakfast. Blueberry, tomatoes, bread, ham, cheese, cereals and milk, tangerine juice, and cup noodles. They don’t clean your room daily.

Good -friendly staff -room value for money -easy check in and check out -close to tourists attractions. -close to subway line 2,4,5 -convenient store in front of the hotel -free drinking water Bad -room to small. Considering the price, it is good BUT a little bit smaller than advertised. -toilet smelly -hallway noisy -no elevator BUT you can ask the staff to bring your luggage. -breakfast just cereal and bread. -located at back street -linen is dirty
