    5/5 Excellent

    Functional and good value

    Great place for the price. I don't think I've found many hostels that include a private bathroom and shower plus AC for $25. I'd highly recommend if you just need a comfortable place to crash in the area.

    Great location, so-so cleanliness, friendly staff

    Hostel has no elevator and the owner may or may not be there to help you (I had to frantically pack my things the night before my check out as the owner informed me she would not be available the morning after unfortunately). However, the staff are very friendly and try their best to help given the circumstances. The location is very convenient which was the best part of my stay. Single rooms are quite cheap and have an individual wet room with toilet and showerhead, which was really great. Just be warned that if your luggage is heavy, the single rooms are on the third and fourth floors so expect to have to drag it up (although there is a metal ramp on the side to assist with this). Not sure if I'd want to stay here again but seems to be decent compared to other places in Korea, based on reviews by people online. If you're travelling alone and want to be within walking distance of Gwangjang market (a must-go), Dongdaemun, and Myeong-dong (about 20 minutes by foot), this has an ideal location with basic living quarters, so weigh the cost-benefit of it to suit your situation.

    5/5 Excellent

    Recommend to people who like silent.

    The hostel is near to the Gwangjang market and Cheonggyecheon stream. The overall was good. This hostel has plenty of bathrooms. One who wish to book this hostel need to take note that this area was less busy and all shops will be closed after 7-8pm.

    4/5 Good

    very small, but convenient place

    I had the last room at the 2nd floor, it was really hard to get to my room. I couldn't find the room at once. But the staff was very polite and kind. It was really quiet so I had to be really quiet also. And I think the wall were too thin? I guess. I could hear everyone move or go down stairs at night time.

    Pros: It was super quiet, very accessible to train station and night life.

    Cons: The windows were really small. I had only partial of the room with the sun and not on the bed.

    Location: train station was close, food market and other accessible stores were near.



    It was a pleasant stay although a few things.... The check out time is too early (10 AM). There is also a $10 deposit fee upon entry. If you go past the 10am checkout time, they keep the $10 deposit fee. The shower is also unacceptably low. Barely any water comes out and the owner had declared it to be like that in all rooms. So this hostel is a pleasant place to stay if you cannot find another lodging anywhere else in Seoul.
