Recent guest reviews

Really great experience, worth the money. Excellent staff, especially Crystal, very friendly and helpful!

It was located in Gangnam Area and the staffs were super nice. Thumbs up

I enjoyed my stay @ kimchee GH, staff are very kind and friendly

I decided to use this place as there appeared to be some good reviews. It's the 2nd week of December and there was no heating in this place. My body literally shivered and tightened up the entire night. Make matters worse, the walls are thin and made of some kind of thick styrofoam barrier. There was loud foreign language talking from 12am to 5am (I kept looking at my watch agonizingly waiting for the day to come). The room is the size of two normal size closets and half the size of a walk in closet! Shower is just a phone booth size thing which includes the toilet and the sink- all in one. Breakfast was self-serve in a youth hostel type of setting - and this was the only normal thing about the whole experience. Miserable experience. No night staff. Avoid if you want to remain healthy enough to enjoy Seoul.
