Perfect for backpackers

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 8, 2014

I stayed here for 3 nights in the fall of 2009 for a Halloween trip to Seoul. I was in an 8 bed mixed dorm which only cost about the equivilent of $20. This included a free breakfast of toast, cereals and juice. Wifi is also included.The hostel isn't a small building on its own, but rather a collection of rooms located in one very large (appears to be some sort of office) building. The owners are extremely friendly and kind, which is why I say it feels like home. They left very cute messages in the dorm rooms in an English that was broken but very friendly. At that time at least, they welcomed backpackers to come sit in the lobby and chat with them over a provided breakfast.

If you're coming to Seoul to shop, party or visit the touristy things, then this is a good place to stay as its only a short walk from the Hongdae area, close to three universities, and not far from the metro station. Their website is very informative with exact location information, current contact info and photo gallery.

The only thing I'd be careful of is coming home at night. This hostel is located on a large road with some busy traffic. If you're walking home drunk, make sure you're looking both ways and being safe. :)
