Hostel with a hotel vibe”
The hostel was very easy to find. The rooms are clean and comfortable. There's a supermarket close by and a cafe right below of the building. There's also a common area where we can hangout, reheat food and get the basic necessities. The Jongno 3 (sam) ga station exit 7 is also about 300m away.

The room was cosy and comfortable. But there's no lift for moving luggage up to third floor. Poor desk service-they left my room card with my full name on the desk because I checked in after 11pm. This could risk breach of my personal details and cloning of my room card by unknown individuals.

Great spot & very convenient”
Nice room size, comfortable, and clean for the price. Walking distance to train, great eating places, and tourist areas. Would choose again in the future.

Excellent”
The room is exactly what you see as in the photo, very clean and the bathroom is big. A very simple self service breakfast with only 1 egg/person, bread and coffee. The night shift staff is very friendly. She even helped me to order food to the hostel. The daytime staff is not friendly. Location is great, only a short distance from the subway, but it took quite a while to reach Jongro -3 station from Icheon airport.

Very good value. Breakfast is excellent. Help yourself with the eggs, coffee, tea, milk, bread, juice, jams in the common kitchen. Location is ideal since it is in right next to Insadong and the 2 major palaces. Compact & clean.

Very good location, clean and comfy room, professi”
This hostel is close to Jongno 3-ga and Anguk subway stations and, hence, it is a good location to explore all of Seoul. The room was very clean and comfortable. Also, the front desk staff were very polite and professional. Finally, there is a nice coffee shop on the first floor.

Everything is great from the free breakfast to the location of the hostel. It's near exit 3 of Line 3 Jongno-3 station. The palaces are also walking distance from this place. Staff are nice they ordered food for us at 10pm. Our room was cleanly maintained. Will stay again next time.

Cool hostel”
Pros: 1. location is perfect for tourists especially. Bec its walking distance to insadong, cheongdokgung palace, bukchon hanok village, jongmyo shrine, cheonggyecheon. Its also near myeongdong, namdaemun, dongdaemun. 2. Many cafes around the area esp. in the alleys. The hostels cafe is good too. Always drank their cafe mocha. Many shops too where you can eat. Just walk around and explore. 3. There a nice cgv cinema nearby incase u wanna watch a movie. 4. The room is comfortable. Unless youre looking for a big space, this aint for you. It got what I needed. Cons: 1. No elevator. Wasnt a prob for me though since i just brought a handcarry luggage. But for travellers who have a big luggage, might be hard for you. To conclude, id definitely stay here again!

nice chic hostel which needs improvement in some a”
not so specific instructions on where to find the hostel. there is no beone grocery shop opposite to the hostel which made it difficult for us to locate it. just an instruction in their website to go outside exit 7 or 8 of jongno 3 sam ga station and that's it. there is no instruction if we're going right, left, up or down the road once we're outside (unlike in smile society in bangkok where there are landmarks provided and specific directions to find the hostel) since we arrived midnight, there is no front desk personnel who received us in the reception. good thing that there were 2 korean sisters who helped us locate the hostel, get inside and check-in our room. we haven't received any note or advance info from them should we arrive past their check-in time of 11pm even if I made a note that we will be arriving very late. just imagine arriving at the hostel at 12mn with nobody in the reception. we don't know what to press to get inside. when we were finally inside (thanks to the korean sisters who discovered what to press since there is a key lock system in the entrance door), another hurdle was to get inside our room. the korean sisters went upstairs to look for somebody who could help us but no staff was inside. i also asked them to read any notes placed in the reception as the receptionist might just left our key. there was a note but it's not intended for us. so what we did was just to get the key that we saw in the reception. the next morning, we registered in the reception and the receptionist informed us that we should be in room 208, not 206 because i booked good for 3 persons but room 206 is only good for 2 persons (2 single beds). i also mentioned about our experience last night and suggested that they could have emailed us or placed a note but what i received was just a simple sorry and that's it! no mention on refunds for the wrong room given and the inconvenience we experienced =( shower gets too hot immediately. it takes time for me to look
