8/10 Very Good

Close to transport & relatively clean
About 10minute walking distance to the nearest metro station. It’s not spotless, but relatively clean. The Lounge did have a bit of a smell situation going on. Our stay was quiet as not many guests were occupying anyways.

4/10 Fair

Good for the price
The hostel was really empty when I stayed there. I was the only one staying in a 6-bed room which was nice but it would have also been nice to meet people. The staff were to themselves so didn't really get to meet them. The bar area is fine but everything was pricey. BATHROOMS WERE GROSS. Mold was growing everywhere and the beds had hair all over them, walls had snot, and there were mosquitos. As said in the title, this was a good price for the place but the location of the hostel was a bit creepy to walk to in the middle of the night. Not angry just not sure how to feel of it.

Convenient location, walking proximity to Hongdae
Shared the room with with 5 other guests, making it slightly cramped. The breakfast they provide is toast with spread, anything else such as coffee or tea is chargeable. While it is not the cheapest hostel, it is located in a convenient location, walking proximity to Hongdae.

I really enjoyed my stay there! The staff are really nice, friendly and helpful. The pub is good though! Location of the hostel is pretty convenient, it is near hapjeong station and in walking distance to hongdae. But the hostel is a bit difficult to find at first time, anyway, google map will help. I would probably stay here again if i go Seoul next time!

Great Place to Stay
I stayed for a week and had a great time. The owner was very nice and his staff were great! The location was far from the tourists places but you can easily figure out how to get there by subway. Hongdae is also walking distance from this hostel where you can experience the nightlife. There is a market close by called Mapjeong where you can enjoy local food. Mapo Dumpling is close and it is open 24 hours with $3 ramen soup to cure your hangover. It is across Tous Les Jours which is also a great place to relax with coffee and pastries.

Close to train station
Abit of walk from Hapjeong train station. But from there there is lot of bars and food options in hapjeong and just one station from hongdae. U can walk to hongdae even.

Nice Hostel
The staff were very kind. The room I stayed in was fairly clean. But it had a little vanity in it and when I opened it, it was filled with dead bugs. The stairs were fairly steep but thankfully a staff member helped me carry my luggage up to the highest floor where I stayed. In the morning there was a terribly annoying ringing sound like a cellphone alarm that went on for 3 hours! I can heard the people in the other rooms complaining about it too. I was unable to have breakfast because the staff couldn't find the food! We just had water. One guest got pretty upset and left the place in an angry state. I had to check out early but the check out area was locked so I had to leave my key in the room.

2/10 Poor

Pretty Average
This hostel is located close to Hongdae and convenient to public transport but if you are thinking about the single room your money is better spent elsewhere. Perhaps the dorms are better value as there are plenty of good reviews but the single room is very disappointing. Although this is a hostel the pricing for a single room is similar to that of many of the local 4 star hotels, however the service and amenities do not come close. There are very steep stairs and if you have more luggage than a backpack getting up to your room is quite a workout. The front desk is closed between 10am and 3pm and I found the staff quite rude even when the desk was open. If you need to speak to the manager he is there only on Fridays so good luck with that too. We booked for 8 nights but only stayed for 3. They have a very strict cancellation policy so we chalked those extra 5 nights up as a lesson in being more selective for the future. But I hope this review is helpful to anyone else looking to stay here.
