Close to transport & relatively clean

About 10minute walking distance to the nearest metro station. It’s not spotless, but relatively clean. The Lounge did have a bit of a smell situation going on. Our stay was quiet as not many guests were occupying anyways.

Stayed 2 nights in Jan 2018


Good for the price

The hostel was really empty when I stayed there. I was the only one staying in a 6-bed room which was nice but it would have also been nice to meet people. The staff were to themselves so didn't really get to meet them. The bar area is fine but everything was pricey. BATHROOMS WERE GROSS. Mold was growing everywhere and the beds had hair all over them, walls had snot, and there were mosquitos. As said in the title, this was a good price for the place but the location of the hostel was a bit creepy to walk to in the middle of the night. Not angry just not sure how to feel of it.

Pros: Price and the idea of a bar in the main area.

Cons: Cleanliness

Location: Hongdae shopping district is nearby- about 20 minute walk but this hostel was in an alley.

4/5 Good

Convenient location, walking proximity to Hongdae

Shared the room with with 5 other guests, making it slightly cramped. The breakfast they provide is toast with spread, anything else such as coffee or tea is chargeable. While it is not the cheapest hostel, it is located in a convenient location, walking proximity to Hongdae.

Pros: Ammenities include shampoo, bodywash and toothpaste

Location: Major supermarket, various convenience store and eateries nearby

I really enjoyed my stay there! The staff are really nice, friendly and helpful. The pub is good though! Location of the hostel is pretty convenient, it is near hapjeong station and in walking distance to hongdae. But the hostel is a bit difficult to find at first time, anyway, google map will help. I would probably stay here again if i go Seoul next time!
