Hot shower with great water pressure. A/C kept the room cool. Wifi worked well. The common kitchen was well equipped and fresh eggs, bread, peanut butter/jelly are available each morning. Tea and coffee...

I stayed at the Chocolate tree for a 5 day stay in Seoul in a private room. It was an affordable, solid place to rest in, with all the basic necessities and a common kitchen for cooking & supplied breakfast (toast, coffee, eggs etc.).

the location is good. close to shopping spots. and there is Issac breakfast and famous shinchu standing BBQ. the shower is a bit too little and the bathroom door needs more water-proof work on it. other than that, it was a great experience of visiting! will definitely stay there again.

Stayed here twice during my first visit to South Korea. The staff were superb. Helpful, friendly and spoke great English.

We booked 3 beds on a 4 beds female dorm room. The bed are relatively smaller than your normal single mattress but the room are clean and cozy.
