Fabulous 8.8 From 172 reviews

STEP INN Myeongdong 1, Seoul
city center, right next to myeong-dong cathedral. clean. BUT TOO SMALL. felt like staying over at friend's room, not a hotel room. still, considering the location it is reasonable. I really loved the sunrise from the small window.

Very Good8.0
This place I thought was great! It was in a great location near eating,shopping and public transportation My only issue was the mattress it was hard but I slept fine I wasn't there for the room

Nice spot
Staff was beyond friendly and helpful. Room was clean and quaint. I think I was sleeping on a box spring but since I like a hard bed I didn't mind. Each bed frame was just plywood but ingenious how there are plugs into the headboard with USB plugs as well as 220v too as well as storage box under the bed. TV had plenty of stations, WIFI was great. Located on a wonderful walking street full of foods and people watching right downtown.

Great Location But Room Needs a Closet
The bed was very hard and there was no closet! I don't mind sacrificing a little for location but not having a good night's rest and not being able to store my clothes really diminished the experience. I also didn't like having to wash my dishes after breakfast. I'm on vacation to get away from chores.

STEP INN Myeongdong 1, Seoul
The location is great! A bit difficult to find at first, but right in the heart of the shopping area of Myeongdong. It's on the 14th/15th floor of a building, so did not have any street noise. I stayed in a room with three other girls and shared a bathroom. In hostels, I generally prefer communal bathrooms outside the room because of the noise component, but some might find the in-room bathroom more to their liking. The front desk was open 24/7 and the staff was always extremely friendly. The breakfast is simple, but always had me feeling ready to start my day. Overall, a great experience for a solo traveler such as myself.
