The Maru, Seoul
Great value
It was pouring when I was in Seoul, so it was nice to be able to do laundry in the hotel.

Good for solo backpacker.
I booked a twin bunk room because there is no 2 single bedroom when I made the booking on the website. The room is.very very small, about 7 sq m, which is totally different from what the information provided. The only thing I like about the room was the bedsheet was clean, at least I dont feel itchy when I sleep on it. This guesthouse is near to exit 3 and exit 15 of the seoul ktx station, cross the road and walk toward.the left side, then walk straight for about 5 mins. Mura guesthouse is about 2 streets away from ss guesthouse, turn right into an alley, which you will see 7-11 store, and Mura guesthouse is right above 7-11 store. If you are travelling with your boyfriend or husband, make sure you book a 2 single bedroom, as the room is slightly bigger and comfortable. As this is.a.guesthouse, dont expect any service at all, you have to go to the.front desk and get towel / toilet paper yourself. To me, this guesthouse is more suitable for solo backpacker and who are really tight in budget, not a.guesthouse for.couple.

Convenient, very near Seoul Station
Stayed a night there to catch the first train at Seoul ITX Station at 5am. Room was small but very clean.

Convenient and good value for money
The room I booked was very cheap, but very small. I wouldn't want to stay in the mini room for an extended period, I think, but as a short overnight stop near the train station, it was very practical. There is a small communal kitchen area allowing you to cook your own food as well, which could be helpful if you are staying for any length of time, though I think it's a little at the mercy of the hotel guests at that point. The room had air conditioning, to make for a very pleasant environment in the room, and also had a small shower room, at one end, which wasn't anything fancy, but was clean and serviceable.
