          For shopping enthusiasts, Dongdaemun is a must visit.
          Enormous shopping centres – stacked with multiple
          levels of boutique and independent shops – offer the
          latest in Korean fashion, cosmetics, accessories, and
          other goods while prices are relatively low. The night
          shopping (between late night and early morning) is
          particularly well known here, making Dongdaemun a
          place where you can literally shop until you drop. If

          Hello, is there free luggage storage after check out in this hostel? If yes, how long can I store the luggage there? And is there restriction on the size of luggage to be stored? Appreciate much if I can have your reply asap as I'm going to live there soon. Many thanks!
