Location! ”
The main selling point of this hostel is location. Airport bus stop just across the street. Just a 2 mins walk you could reach Chungmuro Subway Station. Also within 2 mins walking distance is a bakery, convinience store, a few family restaurant, fastfood restaurant and if you want to go a bit further there's Chungmuro Dwaeji Kalbi restaurant with superb pork grills. Myeongdong is just another 10 mins walk. As for the room itself, well it is what you pay. Don't expect too much. We just came at night for sleep, then in the morning already left the hotel to go exploring. The leisure area's lappy is not working but its not a big problem as every room has wifi. Small rooms alert! Maybe not suitable for westerners height over 170meter. Just watch your head. The staff rarely mans the reception area. All self service. Although when you meet them, they are really nice and helpful. One staff even lent me her phone so I can contact local tour. All in all, its an okay stay.

Leonard from Malaysia

Good location but small room”
Great location, just 1 min walk from nearest metro. Common kitchen is available with fridge and simple breakfast every morning. However, the room is quite small, bathroom is small with low ceiling and no ventilation. Bathroom smells of mildew as it has no window. Weak water pressure for shower. Free pocket wifi available. I did not know as it was not advertised. I only knew it on the last day of my stay. Overall, if you just need a place to sleep, then it should be enough but if you want comfort then it is better to pay a little extra for some other places. Personally, I would have paid more for a better hostel/hotel to stay.

Basic accommodation”
Location, Bed and Security
It was my 5th time in Seoul. Was used to staying at PJ Hotel and Hotel Skymark Myeongdong so I thought I should try something else for a change. Reason for choosing this "hotel" was because it's near Chungmuro Station and you can take Airport Limousine to Chungmuro (No 6015 @ 10K WON). Not really sure if you'd call this a hotel? There's nothing in the room apart from an empty shelf. Room was small - my bed was literally next to the door though bed was spacious for a solo traveler. With a double bed in your room, you're left with only a small walking space. I had a huge luggage with me and the only way I can open it fully is to put half of my luggage under the bed while the remaining half is on the walkway. That would mean I had to jump over my luggage to go to the toilet. So, this is not an ideal place to stay if you're a couple with 2 luggage. Shower/toilet was basic. It was during winter and there was no constant flow of warm/hot water. My room thankfully, was on the second floor. The stairs was quite narrow. Staff was nice enough to help me with my luggage when I first came. The day I left though, he just said goodbye to me and proceeded to clean the room next to mine. It'd be nice if he could have help me at that time too since he saw me with more baggage. Myeongdong is within walking distance distance - 20 mins or less. Namsan Village is a 5 mins walk away or less.

Too cold without floor heating in winter! ”
Good price
We arrived on a cold winter night and check-in was quick but I feel the staff could have been more friendly, He answered my questions with 'mm-hmm' which isn't my idea of hospitality. He was able to answer my questions though, and storing of luggage is possible at the hostel. Breakfast is cereal and milk, also juice, which is sufficient for me. Also, there isn't an elevator so this may not be the best option for the elderly or those with luggage. The room was small, which I don't mind, but the lack of floor heating in the winter made it a very cold and uncomfortable night for us. Hope something is done about this. Myeongdong is a 5-8min walk away, not sure about other attractions as we only stayed a night. Overall the stay was okay, but there are other hostels around with better value.
