A great hostel, in a very convenient location with lots of great places to eat nearby and Hyehwa station only a 5minute walk. It was very peaceful and the facilities were in good condition - a perfect place if your looking for somewhere a little more quiet in Seoul!

I really can't understand the good ratings! it was the worst Hostel i've ever experienced. It was dirty, disgusting and we can't even sleep the night because It was too loud.. after 3 days we can't stand anymore and changed hotel. The breakfast didn't exist and neither the personal. The onliest positive thing was the location.

I started off rating this guest house with 3 stars and, reflecting back on my experience, what stood out was how much Mr. Bong was very friendly and helpful. He has good tips for local places to eat and even went out of his way to walk us to a restaurant. The house itself is pretty standard. The beds and...

Nice place to stay. The staff was really friendly and welcoming. I stayed in a separate building- it was nice and quiet. I had to walk outside a few steps for the bathroom, but considering the bathrooms were separate they were super clean which I definitely appreciated. I don't think there was any wifi in the building I was in,...
