Very nice for group stay!”
I book a room for 4 and it was nice, clean, comfortable. Breakfast is good. Staff are nice. Never have difficulties on using the bathrooms or toilets. Plus they have bidet on the toilets! Will stay again next time..
It is nice to know that you have enjoyed your stay with us! :) Thank you for your rating.
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.
Thank you for your comments! In reference to your point, we will try to improve our facility & service. Thank you :)
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!!
Thank you for your comment :)
Thank you for the kind staff for helping me with my issue the staff is different each time. making it short,there area few pleasant and friendly ones, and a couple rude ones. But they all speak fluent english. I have stayed here a few times already, i can see some fcilities has worn out. but still pleasant. thank you to that particular staff who helped me with my problem. =)
Thank you for your comment! We are glad that you have had a pleasant stay with us and that we could help you. Hope to see you again :)
Please consider that this hostel does not have an elevator/lift and is located on the 3rd floor. Otherwise, this is perfect for solo female travelers. No need to worry about the staffs not understanding you because they speak English and Chinese perfectly.
Thank you for the rating and the review! All of our staff have lived abroad for a long while, speak at least two languages as their mother tongues and are willing to help our valued guests to the fullest. We hope you to stay with us again if you get the chance.
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.
Salut Natacha! Merci beaucoup de nour laisser un commentaire :) À bientôt!
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.
Thank you for your comment! :)
Near to subway & ewha uni. Surrounded by shops and restaurants. Private bathroom. No elevator.
Thank you so much for your comment!
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.
Hello Rashidah. Thank you for leaving us a comment. It was our pleasure to accommodate you with us as well. We wish your visit in Seoul was also a nice one and hope to see you again soon.
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!
Hello Ngoc. We are very glad that you had a pleasant stay with us. Most of all we all the staff are trying our best to enrich your stay with happiness, and we want to say thank you that you have acknowledged this point. We will take your comment as a joyful compliment! Hope to see you again!
Safe for lonely stay”
I was lonely stay this hotel is best for me location is very safe I comeback to hotel around midnight i can walking lonely and very safe . Hotel far from subway exit 2 only 3 mins walk. So, i recommend you to stay this hotel if you come alone .
Thank you for your review. It will be helpful other guest. I look forward to seeing you here :)
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). If I were to comment on the downside is that it's on 3rd floor and no elevator BUT I have no issue with this. Definitely will stay in this hostel again in future.
Dear Hana, Thanks for your comments. I'm glad that you had comfortable stay with us. Hope to see you again soon. Thank you. -Hanna-
Just what you paid for”
All females - it's safe. Everything is small but adequate, except the toilet/bathroom is quite big but in South Korea guest house style. With the price, can’t complain much. Love beddings and comfortable. The other guests were not too bad, all were quite young. Will consider stay here again.
Thank you for your review. I look forward to seeing you again :)
Female Only Hotel Great for Solo Traveler”
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.
Thank you for your review. I am also glad you are satisfied and I will try harder to get a perfect score to you. We look forward to seeing you again :)
it's very good for female solo traveler!!!”
it is good and cheap hostel for solo traveler! Only HKD$100 for a night. Every bed has a light and provide a private place for you. But one problem is the share bathroom. If you are a clean freak, I am afraid you should not choose this hostel. Its not really clean for a clean freak, but it's ok. AND it's really cheap & convenient (really nice the Railway station)
Thank you for your review. Yes, It can be inconvenient because many people use the toilet together. But On the other side, I am happy that you are satisfied. I look forward to seeing you again.
It is located very near Ewha station and it’s easy to get to. The hostel was clean as well.”
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.
Thank you for your good writiing . There is no elevator in this building, so it is very difficult for people to get to this guesthouse with a very a heavy luggage. Sorry. Thank you anyway! Merry Christmas ~
Very near to the subway station and few famous tourist spots. Convenient as foods and restaurants are just downstraits. Walkable distance to other famous area such as HongDae and SinChon. Highly recommended if you are looking for a budget hostel but not overly crowded area. Thanks.
Thank you for your review. That's our hostel's advantages :) I look forward to seeing you again.
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.
Thank you for taking the time to review our property, your comments are very much valued. We appreciate your comments regarding our customer service and ongoing upgrades. We give minimal shampoo and shower foam to each person. Because some people didn't use shampoo and shower foam everyday. But we give other people who ask me to more things. Next time, If you want to more things, please tell the front desk. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip!
Good location. Clean ”
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.
Thank you for taking the time to review our property, your comments are very valued. We appreciate your comments ongoing upgrades. And we are pleased that you found value and hospitality during your stay. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip too.
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!
