        Good location and quiet ”

        The hostel knew I was solo and arranged a room near to lobby. In fact it was my first solo, so it certainly make me feel safer. And convenient to the free flow water and kitchen. Stove is not available for use though. Its not really noisy eventhough my room is close to kitchen, there is a time limit 8am-10pm that we can use the microwave/washing machine. Room is small but sufficient for one pax (i booked double bed). Room service everyday. Breakfast was the same everyday though (toast, cornflakes,jam, butter cheese, ham, orange juice, milk) I get bored on my 3rd day and did not have breakfast there. Location is in the myeongdong street itself, but quieter row. Every night i sleep soundly, bed is on the hard side soft pillows. I get used to it on my second night. Staff always try to help whenever they can even if passed the reception hours. Iron can be provided upon request. Overall it was a really nice stay.

        Cozy Stay in Myeongdong”

        We booked the room for our 10 days trip. The location is near to Myeongdong Station Exit 8 & near to Airport Bus stop. Staff were helpful & lent us clean bathe towels as we did not brought ours. Everyday we returned back to the room with neatly arranged bed & toilet. Room size is not very spacious as we 2 big luggages. One was tucked under the bed, while the other was half opened leaning against the wall. We have to open one luggage at a time, otherwise no walking space left.

Although the room and toilet is small but you get what you paid for. The staff is friendly and there is no difficulty checking in or out. I will definetly go back to stay if I visit Seoul again.

        Sufficient ”

        This is my first time staying in a hostel. If you want a reasonably priced place in the heart of Myeongdong (one of the most expensive area to live in) this is the place. The hostel is very new, clean and comfortable. I stayed in a Double Room which is small but the space is sufficient for a solo traveler like me. The bed is a bit hard but it was fine for me. Breakfast was basic and same daily but if you want to save a meal then it serves it's purpose. The hosts are a nice couple who is very accommodating and friendly. Usually hostels don't clean your room but this one empties our garbage and change our towels daily. The only con I can think of is the sound insulation. The hostel is small and walls are thin. So if you're a light sleeper like me you might want to think twice. Other than that this is a great place to stay for it's location too. It's pretty near to Myeongdong Station Exit 8 which is where the Airport Limousine Bus stop is located.

        It is located right in the myeongdong district which was convenient for food and it is also very close to the train station and airport bus. However, the room was quite small and difficult to open your luggage in the room itself. They allow you to store your luggage outside though which was good for us as we had a big box of goodies. Overall a nice stay and staff was friendly.
