My husband and I have traveled to many countries and stayed in all types of places on a tight budget. But this is by far one of the worst places we've ever booked. It was last minute booking so I had no time to read reviews, BIG MISTAKE. We checked in and out in less than an hour. The smell... More

The room was covered in mould and seriously unpleasant. For the money youre better off buying three beds in a hostel dorm if you dont want to spend the extra on a private room somewhere else. Youll have more space and it will be cleaner. See the photos for reference

We booked one night in a standard double room. It was really cheap due to reserving it after the check-in time. The hotel is really close to the Sinchon station. The hallways of the hotel are quite narrow and the ceiling is low. The man at the reception was friendly and helpful. The room itself was in the basement floor,... More

The location is the most important thing about this hotel. It's within walking to distance to Anguk station, Anguk being quite a vibrant area itself. You can also walk to other location like Jongno-3 and Gyeongbok Palace. The room itself, well you get for what you pay for. It's reasonably sized and has room keeping every day. The mattress was...

It has been about a year since I stayed, but I thought I would contribute as I'm using the site to plan my next adventure. THE GOOD: Great location. You are about 2 minute walk from Sinchon Station (on the green/6 line). I very easily got from Gimpo to the hotel, with one line change I believe, and should be... More

Room is soooo dirty ! Hair everywhere dust everywhere i cant touch anything!! Plus stuff is unkind. I Never stay again this hotel... めっちゃ最悪なホテルです。 ベッドは髪の毛にほこりだらけ。 床も髪の毛だらけ(と言うか部屋代にあるもの全てほこりだらけ。) おまけにコンセントは1つしかつかえない、オンドルもきかない。 2日宿泊予定ですが明日出ます

WS Hotel is not true to the pictures provided. The room was unexpectedly small, with malfunctioning TV and fridge. The toilet and fridge has a horrible smell that sets people off.

I stayed at WS Hotel for 5 days in October 2014. The location is excellent, very close to the subway and near Honggik University. However, the hotel itself is terrible.

“Purchase the most expensive room. For me it was only about $8 a night more and wore it for a slightly larger bed and room. When coming from the station with luggage, use exit 7 as it has an escalator, rather then carrying you bags up the stairs at exit 8.”
