2/10 Poor

Great set-up for a horrible place. Unattended reception with unlit corridors led to dirty, filthy rooms with crumbling wallpapers and no heat system. Hair on the bed (not mine) and public toilets with unclosed doors (hopefully it closes and locks, just that as I passed by it was wide opened, both male & female). The room was so uncomfortable that I didn't want to touch anything. The tiny space didn't bother me as it was expected but the overall quality of dodginess really put me off that I decided to leave and look for another place to stay on the same night. I'd rather stay in a Korean sauna. Avoid.
A very uncomfortable room.
Looked OK but didn't bother to try the water.
Unlit corridors.
Unattended reception during check-in hours.

6/10 Good

It's tiny, but that was expected. What wasn't was the condition, the room looked grimy, filthy. The wall paper was held on with thumb tacks, the fridge was musty and smelled (it's unplugged and left closed if nobody's in the room), the air vent was filthy. The bathrooms weren't as bad, but I'd still wear sandals to the shower just in case.

10/10 Exceptional

Ace in the Hole - Great Value for Price
This was a great place for the night as I had just arrived in town and needed a place to stay that was close to Nambu Bus Terminal. I had to catch a 6:30am bus the next day. Clean room, shared bathroom (but rooms have their own shower), really great wifi and is located in a grwat neighborhood filled with bars and restaurants. About a four block walk from Seoul National University of Education subway station. Really really quiet at night - slept like a baby. I arrived after 10 and while the host did not speak English she was wonderful about showing me around the facilities etc. This is a good place for foreigners to stay and feel comfortable and safe. :) Will stay again and may actually investigate monthly rates.
