Crossroad Backpackers, Seoul
Dirty and rundown hostel
Mattress was terrible. It was so thin and uneven. I waited15 min for check-in because the check-in staff left the hostel. That was unprofessional. The 2nd floor hallway smelled like sewage. Bathrooms and rooms were not cleaned. The bathroom was cleaned only once during my 3 night stay. The trash can in the bathroom were overflowing and yet were not emptied!!! Disgusting. People kept leaving the outer door and the room door open. The outer door lock on the 2nd floor did not work properly. A huge security concern!!! I will not return to this hostel.

A great choice
This hotel is really great for solo travel, as it's a very social hostel! I had a great time here. The facilities are probably about average for the price and area, but the staff are quite friendly!

No thanks
Location is perfect, the hostel is cute. But I will not stay here again due to other guests. I did not sleep for three days, and I had to get up early for tours. This hostel is very social, which is fine. But the days I was there, the other guests were having parties and yelling late in the night. The last night, when the other guest was still yelling at 3am I was really considering to check in at another place down the road. The common room is right next to the dorms. Staff is on duty 10am to 11pm

Decent cheap hostel very close to party area
Pros: rooftop lounge, full kitchen, friendly staff Cons: awkward common room arrangement, thin walls

Staff don't make this hostel stand out
CRBP is in a great location, you've got shopping and nightlife near Hongik university, with quick and easy access to several subway lines. Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend staying here mostly because of the staff. They are friendly enough (usually said hello and goodbye) however, when I asked a question or for help I was given an answer and the staff didn't try to find a solution when the answer was I don't know. I stay at places more than once if the staff go above and beyond. For example, if I need to print something, then it would be nice to use the printer at the hostel, and pay per page, if necessary, rather than the staff telling me to go to an internet cafe to print 2 pages. The area that people can gather and watch tv or eat is also very, very small. The staff would sometimes sit on the couch and watch tv, and also use the kitchen table to work on their laptops. If location if all that matters when finding a place to stay while travelling, then CRBP is good for that. Regarding the cleanliness of the room, I found a receipt under the bed from September. The linens are clean, and the area by the mirror is dusted, but they don't clean the rooms thoroughly after guests have left. There are also some finishing touches they need to work on, like providing trash bins that you can open by stepping on it, rather than using your hand.
