    Your experience will depend on the other guests staying here-hostel is great! ”

    The hostel has a realy weird bathroom policy where people from the dorms can use the bathrooms throughout the hostel (even in the private rooms) and I feel there aren't enough bathrooms for the amount of people who were here. Someone from another area of the hostel (it is 3 seperate areas) came down to use the bathroom and left the front door to the area I was in (it was cold this past weekend) in the middle of the night wide open. Anyone could have come in during that time until I closed it at 6am. and having the same passcode for each area is not a good idea IMO...other than that it is awesome. Staff was great, room was clean when I arrived, was impressed with the facilities for the price but would not stay again until this is changed.

    Fantastic place to stay, very good room and nice facilities, great people, Richard helped us with everything he possibly could, enthusiastic friendly helpful cheerful owner! We're traveling by bicycle and were leaving Korea for two weeks without them, but were able to store bikes and luggage at the guesthouse! Located not too far from the subway station, so it's easy to get into Seoul any time. Also nearby Seoul Forest, worth a visit if you stay in the area,

    Loved this place! Located in a quiet area on the eastern side of Seoul, it's near lots of restaurants and cafes. It's a short walk to get to the circle subway station. The owner, Richard, is friendly, kind and enthusiastic. He's a great guy to talk to and made my stay that much nicer. The hostel also features a rooftop with lots of table space. Bathrooms are detached from the rooms, which was a minor annoyance.

    The room was clean and tidy, the staffs there were very warm hearted and helpful. It's very close to a subway station on line 2 so it's easily to get Kunkook univ. and Jamsil. The only one problem was there was only one bathroom with toilet on 0 floor, after 10 pm it was occupied all the time

    Perfect stay in Seoul!”

    We arrived super late to this guesthouse due to a delayed flight, but the owner Richard came down and helped us check in with no problem at all. Our stay was amazing, hosts were extremely friendly, helped us out with directions when we needed, ate together and had a wonderful experience of Seoul! Only a 5 minute walk from Ttukseom station, this hostel is right where you need it! There is a 24 hour shop basically next door, a beautiful park 10 minutes walk away, and lots of local restaurants outside. I recommend this place so much, the hosts and the vibe of the whole place made it the best place we stayed in, in our 4 month trip around Asia!

    Good Price and Location with Excellent Room”

    Room Charges is a good deal price, I can't find the same quality with this price in Seoul so far. Even the location is 20mins far from Seoul Station, still worth. This guesthouse is a new renovation and located in the residential area. I took abit time to find it as it is not located in the main street, but you will not miss it as they painted the whole house with Blue and write color XD. I took around 5-7 mins from the guesthouse to the metro station : Ttukseom Station. there are so many yummy and unique cafe and restaurant near by, I tried 3 nice restaurant which introduced by the Host - Richard. Richard is a helpful and nice host, always happy to give hand to all guests. Highly recommend to anyone who are not the shoppingholic to stay, and suit for family traveler too. for sure I will stay in here for my next trip in Seoul.
