          This is my 3rd stay in ZAZA, mostly my friend would booked on behalf of me. But this i chose to book in Agoda to give a great review Location- it's in the opposite side of shopping district of meyongdoong, near airport shuttle bus and near the train. so it is very convenient. outside there's an ATM and a convenience store. Just near the place there are lots of food shops . staffs- the owner and the staffs are really friendly, they are willing to help anything. I buy a lot of online stuffs before I go to korea and they would assist me. cleanliness- its very clean, the room is like an apartment actually. very comfortable facilities- is good. value for money- the best ! once again thank you so much Mr. Min I will book here again Merry Christmas.

          Had a great time in Korea. Very accessible to train and Myeongdong. English speaking staff. Food shops are just located outside. Hostel type so you have to prepare your breakfast yourself and wash your own dishes -- found this pretty cool. Hehe. Rooms are really comfortable. No elevator, but not an issue. Would go back and will stay here if i am on a budget. Frontdesk staff may not be at the frontdesk the entire time. I guess that's the way it is. Not a big deal to us.

          This hostel is very near subway station, airport bus station and myeongdong shopping area. Very safe for a woman solo traveller. Also there are lots of restaurants outside. I highly recommend this hostel, also they let you check in early, I arrived around 8:30 and I thought I have to leave my luggages but the staff told me that my room is ready and I can check in and have breakfast, for me that was wonderful. Thanks Zaza.

          strategic location but small room”
          The room is very small. Don't be cheated by the pictures provided. The only merit point is its strategic location (very near to myeongdong train station and shopping street) and security system. Bathroom is very small and the cabinet inside which was not cleaned at all. I had to wipe it before putting my stuff. Also we were expected to bring out the trash by ourselves and dump it outside the building. Mattress protector were yellowish so we instead used our own stoles/towels as a blanket. Towels were old and yellowish too so we did not use it. We had booked a double room but was given a twin room. Overall I won't recommend this hostel to anyone unless the person has budget constraint and is comfortable to prepare own towels/blanket etc and put all toiletories on the toilet bowl cover.

The only two small drawbacks are without elevator and u have to take off your shoes before go into the hostel. But sometimes the host helps customers to take the luggage to room:D (The host is nice~) If u want to stay Seoul for more than 3 Days! Its really a good choice to stay~
