    DONT STAY HERE!!!”

    The place is very dirty. It’s located on the third floor so it’s difficult to climb up with ur baggage. The room is too small. When we arrived they gave us discount because our toilet sink is broken n promised us to fix it on the next day but that doesn’t happen and we we’re just too tired too argue with them. They gave other option to replace with another room but the bed was broken. Please stay another place guys!!

    Very friendly staff , good location”

    Pros- location, right in middle of Itaewon and v close to train and bus stops - Staff very friendly and helpful - Room was very warm in the middle of winter which was impressive , and room itself v clean Cons - shower runs cold for long time in winter ( but this might be expected generally in Seoul ) - entrance to the guesthouse was very dirty which is surprising as rest of space seemed v clean - to bear in mind, reception and check in are only available from 10am- 10pm while I was there so plan your trip accordingly Overall would recommend , not luxury but value for money and with friendly staff.

    Perfect Location for Going Around Itaewon, Much Quieter and Smaller than Others”

    In the area many guesthouses fill on weekends. Pop usually has some beds available. It will be easier to sleep at night than at bigger places. One minute walk to Noksapyung Station or Starbucks and McDonald's.

    Good place with Very Good Location”

    The mixed dorm is a lot like dorms at other hostels but the girl's dorm is nicer. There is more space for you and your things. I think the staff needs to clean the rooms better including under the beds. Also make sure there is enough coffee and clean cups for people to have. Many guests don't understand how to check out in the morning and try to call the phone number on the door. Maybe posting a sign would help. Also a sign on the refrigerator telling guests the food belongs to other people would help. The common room is nice and there is a TV and computer. Sometimes you share the room with company workers who use another room as an office. There is no kitchen but there was one before. The staff could remove the photos of the kitchen from the booking sites. The AC works well and the beds are more comfortable than similar places. The weekend and high season price is higher than other places but it's worth it for more space and a comfortable bed.

    quiet hotel at end of the road”

    very clean and the toilet is just nice.

    I like the location that although its located at the happening area of Iteawon but being at the end of the road just make it so peaceful and also nicely comfortable. it is conveniently located near to subway station and dozens of pub and cafes to hang out. And for muslim you can easily find halal food around this area and its within walking distance too.

    Read the review”

    I booked the place in a hurry, but I really wish I had stopped to look at some reviews. It may have once been a hip "boutique" hostel, but it is little more than a flophouse nowadays. Strong odors permeate the premises, which are never cleaned. Though the pictures make it look like there is a lot of common space to hangout and meet other travelers, there neither any common space nor any travelers, only ppl who live there on a semi-permanent basis.

    Pretty good place to stay”

    My only real beef with this place is there's no kitchen (but there is a small fridge and microwave) and no living area besides the rooftop (too hot during the day). Staff are friendly and the price is right. It's been decorated in a fun way. Cleanliness could be better, shoes on inside feels weird for Asia, especially considering how the bathroom/shower works. The AC isn't the best in the 6 bed female dorm (not sure about other rooms). Overall, it's good, you won't have big problems staying here.

    The owner was really nice and explained anything I needed to know on arrival. Her English was a very good level. Overall I'd highly reccommend staying here. Only thing is that there's not the best area to socialise.

    We had to stay in Seoul overnight, after seeing a concert in Itaewon. This was the absolute perfect location for that. Because we were so late they had closed their office when we got there, so the staff left us a note on the door with out room code. The downside are that the room was a little grubby and the bathroom didn't smell great. It didn't quite look how the photos suggested. But if you need somewhere just to catch a few hours sleep then it's perfectly fine.

    avoid the dorm rooms, get double rooms”

    free breakfast, clean, friendly staff

    Avoid the dorm room, its small and it doesn't give you personal space (no privacy curtains ) other travellers leave their things scattered and cluttered on the floor. Can't sleep well because of the small space and proximity with strangers. Their double rooms are great!

    location, comfortable bed and cheap.

    It was a nice hostel, in a nice spot in Itaewon. It was cheap and the beds were comfy, the breakfast is a bit of a fail, but we were planning on going out for brunch anyway. It's a tad difficult to find, it could do with some proper signage. We found it by accident after searching for a while.

    Centrally located, near to metro, provides high speed internet

    I think the guesthouse is centrally located, near the metro and provides high speed internet. I haven't faced any problem in reaching the guesthouse. However, it was not really clean. My husband and I got some skin infection due to the poor cleanliness of the bed. I think it might have bed bugs or the staff did not wash or clean the bed sheet regularly. Overall, I will not recommend this guesthouse to my family or friends.

    Hostel in Itaewon”

    Cheap, clean beds, and located in Itaewon.

    My stay was very brief: I checked in late and checked out relatively early. The woman who helped me check in spoke English perfectly, and the rate for a bunk bed was very cheap. The hostel is located right in downtown Itaewon, so it's easy to access everything. Beds/linens were clean. The bathroom smelled a little mildewy but it was fine for one night. There was a kitchen open for use.

    For budget and MUSLIM traveller, the affordable and great guesthouse to be choose. Its occupy you a kitchen for cook a HALAL food so dont bother to bring a lot of our country food. They have a great staff that kindly guide you and such a good friend of mine. love you booma!!!!. Fast Internet and comfortable room. I suggest u guys directly made a reservation through mail or their website for cheaper price rather than agoda. Do search the location before check in caused u might lose or trap in the same area.

    A bit Difficult to Find but worth it!”

    cheap, nice location

    It was a bit hard to find, with a very narrow staircase. But it was so worth it, the location is not far from Mcdonalds in a narrow alley way close to everything in Itaewon. Nice down comforters are provided as well as other bedding. The interior is nothing fancy and it makes it look and feel like you are staying in an older family members guest bedroom. The dorm room was shared with 8 people to a room , very small space and only one bathroom. The private double was much more comfortable.

    Great Guesthouse”

    Cleanliness, Design, New Facilities

    Like many other reviews for this guesthouse, I found the location after about an hour of going in circles. A big part of that, however, is my own stubbornness and confidence that I can find anything. Once I went back to the Agoda site and viewed the hostel profile, the picture helped me realize that I was standing right in front of the place. There are actually 2 entrances. My experience once there, was very pleasant and a good value. This guesthouse is actually in a pretty convenient location if you want to shop in Itaewon, especially for books, as "What the Book?" is right across the street. The dorm-style room I stayed in was clean with fresh towels and bedding. It had its own small bathroom with a hot shower. You had to pay extra to use the big lockers in the hall, which is a feature sometimes included in other similar guesthouses. The staff was pleasant enough and the common area was big and comfortable. The free WiFi signal was strong, too. Overall, I recommend this guesthouse and would gladly stay there again!
