        Perfect! Couldnt ask for more!”

        My family and I (my parents & 2 sisters) visited Seoul last July 9-13. Our vacation was extra enjoyable because we stayed in this Philstay hotel. The place was very clean and although the rooms were a bit small, we had a very comfortable 4-night stay. It was an extra treat that Kim was very nice and accommodating. My parents specifically enjoyed their nightly coffee chats in the common dining area. We recommend Philstay to anyone going to Seoul 😀 5 thumbs up from all of us 👍

        Had a lovely stay, i was able to leave my luggage prior to checking in and after checking out. Location is really good too, 1 block away from the station and airport limousine station is also relatively near( 2 blocks away). It was clean and the staff were kind and helpful. Will stay again in the future.

        Responsible, helpful, kind and friendly staff. Rooms are small but location is perfect. Since I stopped by Korea for a week before heading to VietNam from USA. We have many luggages, which its hard to find a space for all. If you intend to have them store many luggages, you should inform them a head of time. Highly recommended. Thanks Kim, Aiden and Lee.

        Very good”

        I don’t normally write full reviews, but I had such a good experience at Philstay, that I wanted to share. The location is incredibly convenient. As long as you don’t mind the crowds of people flooding the streets of Myeongdong, you couldn't ask for a more central location. It is close to food, shopping, and most importantly, the Myeongdong subway station. As a solo traveller, I actually appreciated the busy nearby streets because it meant I always felt safe returning at night among many tourists. The staff are very friendly and speak English well. I stayed in the four person female dormitory, which is small by Western standards, but was clean and comfortable. Just be aware that there is not enough room for people to have large suitcases open in the room. Breakfast is simple, but sufficient to get your day started - there’s toast, cereal, yogurt, and cup noodles. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it to anyone looking to be centrally located in Seoul.

        For 2 ⭐️ Hostel is awesome. I stayed 8 nights in double room . The room was quiet comfortable ( got amenities and heater on the floor) and very clean but a bit small and just fit for 2 adults, but I could still put 2 big luggages easily. The staffs were very friendly. At the end of the day, they gave me a gift ( maybe because I’ve stayed more than a week 😁) Very satisfied and I’ll be back for sure !

        We had a good stay in Philstay. We thought the family bunk bed room is really really small like no space to move for 4 people, but in reality, we were able to fix our luggage (medium size) and move. Staff are nice and room is clean. Location is really near station. Breakfast is very simple, bread, cup noodles, biscuits, yoghurt, etc.

        What stood out this hotel is that they have yummy breakfast-bread, noodles, coffee, juice and others. Not only the free breakfast but also the staff are so friendly and love to exchange conversation. The location is excellent 1-2 mins walk from myeongdong station. The bus to incheon international airport is also located near the hotel and station. If you are planning to go Everland or Namsan Seoul Tower, the bus station is also there beside the myeongdong station. Night market is also very near the hotel. Overall rating: AWESOME!

        Comfortable respite”

        I travelled to South Korea with my husband and 3 kids. We booked two separate rooms for my husband and I and another one for my kids. To satisfy my everyone in the trip I have scheduled a hectic itinerary to please everyone. PHILSTAY in Myeongdong gave us a comfortable respite from a very tiring day. They also provide instant ramen noodles, cereals with some garnish and bread with spread for breakfast. Since we stayed there for more than 5 days we were able to have our room cleaned. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were also able to talk to the owner of the place and he made sure that we enjoyed our stay. The bed however is hard for my liking but since we were so tired I was able to fall asleep without difficulty.

        Great^^”

        Great location, room is clean but a bit narrow for twin room. All the staff are incredibly helpful and generous with their time and advice. Overall this was one of the nicest places we stayed during our holiday.

        The stay was wonderful. The location of the hostel is right in the heart of Myeongdong.”

        The staff were very accommodating and we’re very grateful because our room got upgraded when we were about to check-in. The hostel also has a storage area so we didn’t have to worry when we check out early and left our things there since our flight back home was at midnight.
