If you are planning to explore Seoul, South Korea, JIN Guesthouse is a good choice for your low budget. The guesthouse near the Chungmuro Subway Station (just walk around 5 minutes) Cinema, foods stall, Korea House, Namsanggol Village, 7 Eleven, Burger King and Family Mart. The guesthouse so very clean and their staff super duper friendly.
