      Good for a short stay for solo travellers”

      It's a nice little hostel. Good for a short stay. But I didn't feel too comfortable on the first night because I feel a bit itchy (not sure if the bedsheet is clean enough). It may not be good if you can only sleep in quiet environment because the other tenants may get in or out, open the room door, though they keep it very quietly you can still hear. Some other tenants may need to leave early in the morning so they have to pack their luggage before you wake up. I would suggest the hostel to put a curtain in each bathroom so whole bathroom floor won't be wet even after use. In general, the location is good and nice for a short stay. With this price, you cannot expect too much.

      Revisiting again.”

      This is probably the 4th time of me visiting Philstay Ehwa, great hospitality and very good value for the price. This time I happened to have to attend an event at Ehwa Univ. so the location was extra convenient. There is everything you need here - 5min walk to metro, 7min walk to airport bus station, right in the shopping area, plus instagram-worthy photos if you hop into Ehwa Univ. The only downside would be that I find the heating really stuffy at night especially when you pull down the blinds. But it's Seoul, so strong heating is always better than insufficient heating. Also it's hard to move around (at least for me) if you get the upper bunk. A little anecdote from my stay this time, I left my card wallet on the sofa at the concierge when I left for the airport (I was rushing...). I texted Philstay via Agoda and the reply was speedy + in perfect English. Ended up having my friend to pick it up for me, extremely relieved to have it back. Thank you!!

      Very Good value for money for this above average dormitory guesthouse ”

      This hostel is great for a solo traveler that is looking for a cheap, clean and practical bed in a dormitory (2 to 6 beds per room). The window store available for each bed allows to have a certain privacy, even if you can have sometimes noisy neighbors. The breakfast (cereal, coffee, bread and jam) is okay but can be better. Don’t forget to ask for lower bed when booking If you prefer it. Rarely any line to go to the bathroom as there are enough spot for everybody. However, there is no windows in the rooms. The hotel is very near the metro line 2 (3 minutes) in a very lively area, next to the very beautiful Ewha university. The staff is very friendly and speaks perfectly English.

      Amazing location! Right next to the womens university so as a solo female traveller, I felt very safe coming back to this hostel at 12am. The bathrooms weren't the best, it was old and a bit dirty, but functional. Common area is okay, but I'd stay here just for the location.

      from Ewha Uni station, exit 2 and walk around 3 to 5 minutes. This hostel surrounding with korean skincare and cosmetics shop. And Ewha university just one minute. Cons only the hostel at 3 floor, they do not have lift. So, if you have heavy luggage, you need to struggle. I really love this hostel because female only. The bed is good and i have privacy enough. For locker, you need to deposit 5000 won. The locker suitable from small to medium luggage only. They also provide washing machine for freee, it's advantage for light traveler.

      Cons: breakfast was just bread and coffee. But it's basic anyway. The space in 8 beds dorm is smaller than I expected. I thought it's more open based on the photo I saw. Maybe next time I'll try 4 or 2 beds dorm. The hostel is on 3F, no elevator. That's the worst thing about the stay :( Pros: Facilities are all good. Bathroom are enough for everyone, and very clean. Public room is perfect for using in the morning or midnight. The view is cool. The bed is comfy, I like the blanket. The temp in the room is always under controlled. The area is perfect. They have everything you need in Korea, and super near :D The staff is the best thing in this hostel I guess. There's a new employee and she's very energetic. She offered every help possible to every guest. Love that! I would stay here again for the next trip!

      Easy access to public transportation, lots of shops, cafes and street stalls nearby. Hostel itself is comfortable (I stayed in bunk bed), there's living area where you can relax, eat and enjoy street view and most importantly it's for female only (extra point for this).

      I did my solo traveling to Seoul and very happy staying here. I stayed for almost 10 days. I think the hostel is great for female solo traveler. I got the room for 8 but I still have the privacy. All entrance using codes, very safe. Check in and check out process was easy. They also provide simple breakfast: cereal, toasts, coffee. Location-wise, it is near the mini market, MRT station, and various beauty store. Cafes and street food vendor only few steps from your door. Will stay here again if I visit Seoul again.

      Nothing much to pick about for this hostel. Only con is that it is located on the third floor and there is no lift. Also it could be difficult for solo travellers to get to the airport bus stop subway if you have multiple luggages. There is also a flight of stairs to climb to get to the ground level so if you have heavy bags/luggage it may be difficult. Other than this, the hostel was wonderful.

      Suitable for solo traveler ”

      I was here for 5 days and I had a comfortable stay. There are 5 big toilets, hairdryer and big mirrors for us to use. Even there is a washing machine for us to wash our clothes for free! We need to hang our clothes at the rooftop, but i dont think that's possible during cold weather. For me, it's fine as it was sunny during my trip. My bed was on the upper level, it's ok for me to climb but maybe not ok for other people. The dorm is quite small but luckily there is enough space for me as i only have a small luggage. Western breakfast is served every morning, self service. The drawback is they only provide individual shower foam/shampoo which can be used once. As the weather is quite hot, people like me who showers twice a day will face a problem. So i end up using the shower foam very wisely (twice per packet). No rinse (conditioner) is provided. So during summer, travellers may need to bring their own shower foam and shampoo.

      The location is great. Only a bad point is no elevator if you carry heavy suitcase. Shower rooms are big and I love it. Bed is wide enough for a person and it's separated privately from each other with curtain. Breakfast started too late at 8 am and ended just a couple hours. Staff is fair at English speaking. Price is fine for the simple facilities provided. One of my choices for my next visit.

      Great location, breakfast provided for this price ”

      Great place to stay! Conveniently located near edae station and a lot of clothes and makeup shops however it's at the 3rd floor with no escalator..(hmm big luggages..) the staff are really helpful, friendly and approachable! The bed looks clean and neat during check in and the toilets(there are 5, almost didnt had to queue for the toilet at all for the time that i stayed) are cleaned daily! Had a great stay there and would like to stay there again!
