Exceptional 10.0
Best Hostel in Seoul
Had a great time here. Everyone (including all the staffs) were very friendly. I ended up going out with them at night. It was my second time staying. Close to areas near Gangnam. Best hostel to stay in South Korea. I'm returning there again soon. =)

Tiny but cozy
Despite the small size, Kimchee Gangnam Guesthouse still could have kept better cleanliness. Room and bathroom facilities are noticeably grimy, and even the bedsheets were stained. Still, it was a cozy and convenient stay in a really great part of the city, while also being quite and comfortable enough to recommend if you're traveling on a budget. If you need to save your cash for the rest of Gangnam, this hotel is a pretty good idea.

Good 6.0
Just stayed for 1 night while in Seoul. Who will get small private room 506 - be careful, shower is leaking and possibility to wake up in flooded room is high. Except of this - everything was ok: common area, building, staff.

Good location!
I’ve stayed here for several times because of the good location, only 2min walk from metro station, and the reasonable price of single room. It’s also convenient for taking the rest after shopping in Gangnam area.

It was great! Though I stayed in a private room, the bed was a little hard, I didn’t mind. I made myself breakfast every norning and was doing things at my own pace and customer service was buce.
