It&'s like living in a massive family. Sam is very kind and helpful. Bathroom is nice. Beds are comfortable.

Not a lot to be honest. It wasn&'t that it was so bad, it&'s just that there are nicer hostels in the location for the same price.

  Customer Review 

Nice location to stay, warm and friendly staff, good facilities, good wireless. Vibrant nightlife in this area, a lot of places to eat out at. Not faraway from the metro station, the directions on how to get here are good.

I didnt expect such a excellent spot before my trip but it is actually one of the very best hostel that i have stayed. The location is amazing, it locates in one of the very best region in Seoul. Not the most fancy one but for sure it is the very best spot to explore the true korean culture and food. The property owner Mr. Choi was very helpful and friendly, i did feel the hostel is my home in Seoul. Had a excellent staying and no doubt this spot will be my option for Seoul.

Mr Choi was amazing. He was extremely friendly and sat and hung out with us for a little while. He was of outstanding help for knowing Seoul. A great friend of ours decided to get into a fist fight (in a bar, NOT at the hostel) and our gracious host cleaned our drunk friend&'s wounds and iced his hand. HIGHLY RECOMMEND AND BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE. These are good people.
