Fantastic friendly staff, transport links everywhere, clean, and a fun place to stay”

I really enjoyed my stay in YaKorea, mainly because of the friendliness of the staff. They were very helpful , and Victoria even took me shopping for hours! As well as giving me plenty of local intel and insight. But all the staff were lovely and helpful and it's definitely somewhere i'd reccommend and come back to myself. You won't struggle to find transportation either because buses and subways are all a few minutes walk away. Get a T Money Card from the airport or any convenience store and use it on the transport while here!

Nice place to stay!”

It was a nice place to stay that i ended up staying there for 4 nights! Went to seoul for bts concert and chose this place as it was not too far from the olympic stadium. Just a walking distance to subway seolleung station and near to bus stop! There are few convenience stores around too. The staff was friendly and nice. Check in time is 3pm, if you arrive there early you can leave your luggages there first if you wanna go somewhere else. Luckily i got the lower bunk bed as it was a first come first served basis. The room was cozy and clean, the bed was nicely made and comfortable! There's a locker available for each customer in the dorm, but you need to prepare your own lock as it's not provided. Just that I'm not satisfied with the 3rd floor female bathroom as it will get clogged when take shower there. For the toilet maybe the hostel can consider to prepare bidet? There is a paid laundry service available, but the staff just mixed my clothes together with the hostel's towels and blankets. I think customers' clothes shouldn't be mix with others, as customers paid for the service, this is to ensure cleanliness. Overall everything was good, hopefully they can make some improvements for customers to have a more pleasant stay and I'll be more pleased to stay there if i will go to gangnam again next time!

Cheap, good location but only 1-2 shower room per whole floor ”

I booked for 4 bed dorm spent 3 night within 30$. Very good location, easy to go from seolloung station, near stores, friendly and very very very helpful staff. The thing I don't like is share plugs and light in the room. They should have small lamp for reading for each bed. And no curtain to cover bed when you sleeping and someone get in. It's annoying. Should have plug to charge phone for each bed. Not so good shower room. And enter like 1 by 1 only but they have clean towel and shampoo and shower cream for free. I would recommend if you don't mind about privacy. It's just good to spend short time, save money for other things. But if want more comfortable and privacy, you should go for another choice. After all, I recommend this hostel.

A basic hostel that's an excellent value for the area”

A basic hostel that was already a good value for Seoul in general, but especially so in the expensive area of Gangnam. Not the most modern or well maintained, but it served its purpose well. A good option if you'd like to stay around Gangnam but don't want to pay exorbitant prices. Room type: Bunk bed in mixed room Lockers • Size: About the size of a carry on+ extra lengt Bathrooms • Number: 3 bathrooms for 6 rooms on the main floor (floor 4), plus extra showers and bathrooms on the floor below • Hair Dryers: Y Common Area: Dinner table next to kitchen and laundry Amenities • Included towels: Y • Light in bunk: N • Outlet by/in bunk: N • Bunk curtains: N • Included breakfast: N Misc • Set up bedding yourself: N • Break down bedding yourself: N • Laundry: Drop off at desk for 6k • Elevator: Y Value: Very cheap for Seoul in general, and especially Gangnam Notes: Shower water sometimes fluctuates to cold very briefly (but it wasn't so bad that I had to jump out of the shower)

I came for BTS final concerts in Jamsil Olympic Stadium. The closest subway station is Seolleung Station, around 600meters away. And only 2 stops away from the stadium. I had a good stay in the hostel.. Comfy bed & pillow. The staffs that I met were also kind and friendly. The shower on the 3rd floor next to room 10 needs to be cleaned thoroughly. It always got clogged when showering.

Mixed feelings”

I made 2 separate bookings and on my first day it was not so pleasant. However, on the 2nd day, it was a tad better. I had such a bad impression when I first entered the hostel. It was very messy, like a lot of stuff lying around. And when I entered my room (shared 4 female room), it was very stuffy and smelled like food. And the shower was clogged and full of hair (super gross)...same goes with the sink. Thankfully on the 2nd day, the shower was less clogged and the sink was all good. FYI, the shower is a communal shower room, though you can lock the door and have it all to yourself. However, this hostel has an excellent location. 7-min walk to Seolleung station and 3-min walk to the bus stop that goes to Gangnam station and express bus terminal, close to a GS25, restaurants and cafes. Also, it's the cheapest in the area.
