The hostel is a great place for friends and activity participants to live in. It is really a big place and have all kinds of facilities, they also have sown free walking tour program for guests but sadly I didn't have time to join. Maybe when you come here you can join the program and let the Korean youth take...

The hostel is quite new with huge nice rooms with bathrooms . We were surprised at how nice the rooms were. The only way one can tell that you don't live at a hotel is that they don't come and do the beds and clean the room. The room was nice and clean when we arrived. Every day they filled...

This place has a very good location, 5 minutes from the nearest subway. Located in a quiet area of the city. You can catch a cab from the door. Rooms are spacious and the whole building is well maintained.

Although they called it "hostel", I think it more like a budget hotel. I stayed here in September for a business meeting. I shared room with a colleague and we got 3 single beds room. The room is spacious. I got no difficulties in placing stuff and luggage (compared with common hostel). Each bed equipped with 2 power sockets and...

If you want to have a good time in Seoul, try to avoid this place. The wifi connection is extremely weak inside the rooms; I asked different staff members if they could do something about it, but essentially all they had to say was, "Sorry, that's just the way it is." There is no food nearby, so if you wake...

This place is pretty much a hotel, for the price you pay its well worth it to stay here. The bedrooms look like Hilton hotel rooms with the same kind of layout and furniture...a desk area with 2 seats,nightstand, 2 big beds, closets/wardrobe, etc. Someone even comes in to make your bed and pick up trash,and replace towels every day....

I stayed here for one night and I'm delighted with the cleanliness and comfortable room, friendly and helpful front desk staffs, and of course, its location. I walked to the market and Times Square which was 10 to 15 minutes' walk (or more, I can't remember). Safe place and I wish I had stayed there longer :)
