I liked the location: close to the Dongdaemun weekend market, the traditional market, and my favourite, the Dondaemun craft market (note - closes Monday). Easy access to bus system, plus the 6002 airport bus, , which is great, I don’t like the windowless room. Three days is the max for me.

great location, lovely staff and able to make an egg breakfast in the mornings. Beds were comfortable and there were fresh towels everyday. Only thing the air conditioning unit would make a loud noise every few hours which would sometimes give me a fright or wake me up but besides this minor issue everything is a thumbs up. Will return again.

Excellend location
The hostel was very near the subway which makes travelling easier. It's very close to Dongdaemun Gate (Heunginjimun Gate) and DDP as well. Walk further along the block and you'll find cosmetic stores and food hubs. You get more of what you paid for at the Egghouse Hostel. They let you cook your own eggs with unli coffee. What more can you ask for? ☺️☺️
