Great service, great location for a good price
The location could not be better, it’s right at the insadong street. The rooms are in good condition. The room I got even had tv and our own washroom. Cleanness was good for hostel standards. The kitchen might look overwhelming but the breakfast was really good. The owner is a really nice guy and was always making sure people had what they needed

Comfortable, clean and very well situated. The rooms have little extras, like a bedside lamp and multi plug access by the bed, hangers and rail, and it's quite spacious. The surrounding area is charming with a wide selection of restaurants and it's on the doorstep of the city center. I will definitely stay again when in Seoul.

I've stayed here a couple of times. The owner is very nice, and they have a good breakfast. The bed wasn't the most comfortable. For the price I would have liked a little better bed, but I still liked the place enough to return. It's Close to the subway.
