Poor1.0 / 5
If you like disgust
I was absolutely disgusted with this place. I was traveling over 3 weeks in Korea and I had stayed in numerous cheap hostels, but this place was by far the worst hostel I have ever been too. The floors have not been swept for months, the ways had water leaks with poor patching, and the bathroom sink leaked all its used water on the floor running right to your feet. The place has a drug house/brothel kind of appearance with how grungy it is. There were lots of mosquitos and I found brown spots on my pillow case. It was so gross that I couldn't stay anymore nights after the first night.

Video Directions
Kimchee Guesthouse has a walking video of how to get to the guesthouse from the closest subway station. That's what sold me. A lot of guesthouses are hard to find even with a drawn map. This was fool proof.
