    Affordable stay and superb location”

    We stayed here 2 nights. Location wise was superb, within walking distance to most of the attraction nearby. Staff was only available from 6pm-11pm during check in duration but he was very friendly and helpful. Panty was very basic with induction cooker, utensil, plate etc. toast+jem is available at the pantry and you can borrow the umbrella when needed. if you come early just leave your bag behind the reception counter. Our room wang twin bed and the room is spacious enough for us, heated floor, tv works just fine and 3 power points available. The only minor downside for us was the stairs as our room was in the 3rd floor.

    Good location”

    Location is convenient for food, halal food, party (party street is right below the guest house) and subway. On the other hand, you need to walk high steep/stairs each time you want to go to the guesthouse. Prepared to be a a very noisy environment (up to 4/5am in the morning on weekends). Bed is not so comfortable, very small room - but its okay for the value we paid

    You get what you pay for. The staff are fine and the common area is okay but not very big. The rooms and beds are basic. Shared restroom with good shower. Clean kitchen. Had trouble with mosquitoes at night. Luckily the reception is 24 hours and they had spray I could use. A good idea in summer is to keep a can in each room or at least in the dorms. Very near the night clubs but just a little noise at night due to boys have fun outside. It's on a street behind the clubs and far enough away that you aren't bothered by the noise. Thanks SP staff.

    Pros: party area a lot of foreigners near bustop very accommodating staff clean cons: shared bathroom stiff road going up separate building to stay from reception taxi driver got lost (location not recognized in new gps, the staff said) during our stay, there is construction beside the guesthouse and it was really very noisy in the morning from digging using heavy equipment. But that was fine, the staff informed us upon arriving and it won't happen all year long. We only had the bad timing. Maybe the time you'll stay there, they might be finished with the construction. 😄

    Excellent location & great price for private room.”

    Pro's: loved everything about this place. Good location at Itaewon. super easy to commute anywhere by bus or metro. loads of restaurants & bars around. they have a nice rooftop terrace where you can drink. Staff were extremely friendly. Very multinational ambience. Con's: Steep steps to the hostel, not suitable for people with heavy baggage but there is a alternate route further down the street. The doors to the toilets at the private rooms on the top rooms are so dingy that there is hardly any room for you to get in or out. Will be a nightmare for someone with heavier built. The water outlet to the wash basin empties on the bathroom floor rather than the drain. it is disgusting as you have to use the same during showering after people have brushed their teeth.

    Excellent option for stay in Seoul ”

    Good location, easy to commute from the Airport via metro to Itaewon exit 1. If you want to avoid the steep stepos to the hostel just use the alternate path a lil further down. I recommended travelers with heavy bags to use the airport bus instead, saves you trouble of changing metro lines & some dont have escalators. Staff are super friendly & will let you check in early if possible. Big kitchen if you want to self cook. very multicultural ambience. They have a nice rooftop with good view to enjoy drinks in the evening. lots of food & drinks option close by. The only thing that i didnt like about the place was the toilet doors in the upper private rooms are so tight that there is narely room for you to get in or out, so if you are a big person request a room in the lower floor where the toilets ate big. Also the wash basin outlet in the bath rooms & toilets empty on the floor. its a little disgusting as it spread on the same floor you are having a shower. Overall i rate this place really high & will stay again. where in Seoul coukd you possibly get a private room for that price.

    Location wise, it is strategic but quite noisy during the night because it was surrounded with Pubs and Discos. Value for money because I stayed for 5 days. The staff are friendly, there are 3 Muslim Malaysians working at the guesthouse, easier for us to ask around since we are Malaysians.

    Cheapest in the busiest street in town”

    It's located just at the busiest street in Itaewon, and very near to train station. Cleanliness was good too, and staffs were friendly and helpful, and speak good English. The cons are: 1) My room is located at a separated building. It's troublesome when you need to return key to the counter in main building. (although just 2 min walk) 2) Shower heater working too slow. (I was only staying one night, skipped showering.) Please check that if your room is a shared bathroom or not, I only realized that I booked a room with separated shared bathroom with around 6 other rooms on the same floor. Anyway, I must say it's very value for money at such location. Perfect for short stay, and especially solo travelers.

    I was assigned to the new building which i found is even better. Opposite the building is a restaurant and convenience store is only few steps away. It is even close to clubbing street and the main street, which mean i have lesser footsteps to reach the hostel. I will come back again.

    Fast check in and very simple procedure during check out. It was closed to Itaewon subway station and easy to find (thanks to SP@Itaewon guide map). Staffs was friendly. Itaewon is not a shopping area. However, it was very happening during weekend due to nearby bars and clubs. I will defintely stay here again.

    Perfect.”

    Comfortable beds, clean environment, well-designed

    First trip to Seoul, arrived in the evening. The hotel gave very clear instructions on getting there, fortunately. Booked a bed in the dorm room through Hostelbookers, got an email confirmation through e-mail. Arrived and greeted by a Korean lady, Alex was her name, if I got it right. Very friendly and welcoming. The down side was that we have to make our own beds, with duvet, pillowcases and etc. But, doesn't hurt to be independent at times right? (: At least they gave more than sufficient amount of items to make you have a good nights' sleep (not that you may need one though) Seoul has too much nightlife to miss! The location - perfect! Not in the slightly dirtier Dongdaemun nor the busy streets of Myeongdong. As a Muslim, it was a plus to be in Itaewon too. The Central Mosque is located just ten minutes away from the hostel. The subway station is just a five minutes walk - VERY easy to navigate yourself. Shopping in the area is not highly recommended, but do try the Halal food stores (majority Turkish) at least once when you're there. Booked two nights, added on another night after being away in Dongdaemun. Will return, definitely!

    Had a pleasant stay. I was upgraded to female dorm for free😍, instead of 10 beds mixed dorm.”

    Had problem with roommates only during my stay (they’re european who can’t stand cold I guess) since they don’t allow me to turn on aircond for the night (it’s summer, mind you). The location is on a hill, so if you don’t mind climbing daily (which I don’t) it is recommended to bool this place. It’s affordable, clean, has friendly & helpful staff, easily accessible by subway & very near to itaewon main road (halal food is everywhere & very near to mosque too).
