YaKorea Hostel Gangnam
So kind Hostel!!”
We stay longtime this guesthouse. so clean, resonable price. I love it. and Especially kind staff NeNa. When I come korea, I`ll be back this hostel. Highly recommended!! P.s. Special thank you. Nena
I came for one night and ended up staying for 6 days because l felt at home and comfortable. Not only the staff but also the temperature inside is warm, my stay was in november cold and l liked spending time in my warm and spacious dorm room and the kitchen. Even though it is usually quite crowded and people chat in the kitchen till late, the environment is very cozy and people have nice vibes here. The kitchen has utilities and you can shop from nearby marts and cook. Towels are provided, laundry is available. There are several bathrooms that you can use, l suggest the owner to provide some racks to put clothes or other stuff, and fix some showers which don’t have hot water, only that was uncomfortable. Metro and bus station is nearby. Very pleasant stay for such cheap price!
only a nite stay”
I only stayed for 9.5hrs so can't comment much. I arrived at almost 1am and left on the same day at 10.30am. The keys was left at the check-in counter so it was no fuss. The room has no individual power point or light for each bed so charging was a pain since I was on the upper bunk. The bathroom was weird with 2 'somewhat' communal shower... you have to pass by the person who is using the basin to get to the showers and if you are lucky, the inner shower room has a door that you can close, so passing the outer shower space to get to the inner shower. If someone is using the outer shower, you will be practically opening the door to a naked person taking her shower right infront of you and somehow try not to get wet while passing thru. There is a table with hair dryers and combs but no powerpoint nor mirror so you gotta use the powerpoint that is next to the wash basin. There are bath soap and shampoo dispenser but empty, so not sure if provided but I had my own, so that wasnt a problem for me altho it is quite common for guesthouse/hostels in Korea to provide them. Wifi is good and room is spacious enough with a good size locker. We have to take off our shoes at the entrance but no shoes provided, so waddling from the shower out to the corridor with wet feet and getting onto the bed is kinda uncomfortable. Tried to get a towel in the morning at 9am but no one at the recep counter. Room was on the 3rd flr and the recep counter is on the 4th. Not sure about the location but basically booked this as it was the only one left in agoda which is in Gangnam (not too far from the Express Bus Terminal) and at a good discount since I booked it last minute. It has a small kitchen just next to the recep counter, didnt use it so cant comment.
I stay there last Monday. The price was awesome for Gangnam are and since i have rewards from Agoda, i pay nothing for 1 night stay :) The place is really homey and the staff really nice. The building has its own elevator so it won't be a problem for you who has big luggages. Free rental for towel as well. Many stores outside the hostel like convenience stores and restaurants. There is no body soap at women toilet on 3rd floor. The walk from Seolleung Station quite far but of course walkable ^^
I would like to recommend this place to my fellow travellers. It was clean, friendly and located at a convenient place. Moreover it was affordable. I extended my stay another night there as i met some nice room mates while staying at the dorm. Would definitely return and thanks for a great stay.
Nice staff and clean room”
I only stayed here for one day but the staffs were nice and friendly. the room was better than my expectation, would stay here again if I have another chance to come back to Seoul
Ina is the greatest human being to ever grace the presence of this terrible earth”
During my stay, the only thing that stopped me from falling into a deep depression was Ina's warmth and kindness. Talking to her makes me forget about the cold winter outside.
Generally speaking it was fine, but not really my style. I don't think I would stay here again. The rooms are not all that soundproof and I don't care for community showers and such. Also, the lights from buildings nearby made the room quite bright when the lights were off, and when the sun came up at 6:30, so did I. It was clean and the staff were friendly and responsive to my emails and text questions. Yes, I would recommend this place if you don't mind the things that bothered me.
I was hesitant on booking this place due to mixed reviews. I stayed for around 5 days. It wasn't bad! But I can see where past guests have had an issue. And this goes for any guesthouses/hostel. Do not get a room near the common area. Even though there is a sign posted in the kitchen to keep quiet at 11PM (can be made a bit more obvious or bigger) there still will be a bit of commotion. I stayed on the 3rd floor and it was fine. I made friends with guests and staff. Very nice atmosphere. Initially I had a top bunk bed but I didn't feel comfortable on the top bunk so I asked if I can get a bottom bunk and they happily obliged and said as soon as theres an opening I can switch keys to get a bottom bunk. They have a laundry and dryer you can use for 4,000won I believe? and also have a water dispenser.
The hostel is surrounded by office buildings, but good thing is there are a lot of restaurants around. Happening areas like Gangnam station is 20-30 minutes away by foot. This hostel is the most budget one I found in Gangnam area, not to expect superb facilities with such cost, but I would say the staffs are the less friendly ones I met throughout my 2+weeks trip in South Korea. Not to mention particular case, but can tell the difference of friendliness between YaKorea and other hosts I met. And one thing, they have quite a number of staffs which I am not sure some of them whether are the guests or the staff, except there was one guy who wear the t-shirt with Yakorea wordings. Don't really recommend this guesthouse, unless you are looking for a budget hostel in Gangnam, and don't mind with the talking, laughing sound of the guests?staffs? till 1am in poor soundproof rooms. FYI, you gotta pay 4000 won for the laundry service.
So kind Hostel”
We long stay this hostel. so clean, neat and good location. Especially kind staff NeNa. When We come Korea, We willl come this guesthouse. Special Thanks. - Staff : Nena
Not bad to stay 1 or 2 days.”
Mostly it was good trip with this accommodation. Location was really good and close to subway station and cleanness was also not bad. I was able to take a shower with hot water and a room was well heated. Generally, I think it was reasonable. But if I staied 4 or 6 dormitory, it would be uncomfortable. I think there were few wall socket in the rooms. so someone charged her cellphone at corridor until 1am and she couldn’t stay at room in case her cellphone could be stolen. while cellphone was charged completly. (Actually, she made noise a lot.)
I won’t recommend this guesthouse. ”
The reasons are, 1. When I first move in, it was a mixed room, the staff said there were two guys, one it smelly the other one is cute. I’m not here to see guys, it’s sounds a bit frivolous and rude to say their guest smelly. ( even it’s true. So the room smelled) 2. The kitchen was too small and close to bedrooms, people were chatting out loud during mid of the night. Maybe it’s a good place for party animals. 3. The staff couldn’t find my key deposit when I checked out and asked me do you put deposit here? I’d like to say, otherwise how can I get the key? Even though she found it after all, but it waisted my time.
Fully Recommended ”
I really love this place cause the bed are comfortable .... and the host/staff are super nice to me ..... it is close to the solleung train station ... many shops are around there .... so of course no starving.....there are one staff look like GO ARA :) .....
I had dinner in the area and had to wake up early to catch my bus at the Express Bus Terminal (just a few stations away), so the location was ideal; it wasn't next to the subway station but a short walk away. The staff is only on duty until 11pm so it's self-service/check in after that time. Upon booking, I notified the hostel through email that I'd arrive a bit past midnight; they then replied to acknowledge. They followed up by email with instructions on how to check-in after 11pm, but by that time, I didn't have internet access so I was clueless upon arrival to the hostel. Fortunately, the one of guests in the lobby noticed me and helped me out. This was the only hitch in my experience, so I hope they improve on that by informing guests of the post-11pm check-in procedures upon acknowledgement of booking confirmation. Despite that, it was an overall good stay and would recommend the hostel, esp. if catching a bus at the Express Bus Terminal in the morning.
only one shower room
It was great to consider its price. If I have a chance to visit gangnam, I'll book again.
Clean and tidy. Staff were helpful all the time
Great value for money, clean and tidy ”
