Caring people in a great location
Lovely people at Banana Backpackers! I must confess I did catch the flu and was a bit of a mess, but they were very helpful and caring! I stayed for 14 nights in total. You do, however, get what you pay for. The quality of the room and bathroom was average, but bearable. The heated floor wasn't done correctly (?) (Don't know how to word it), as only certain parts of the floor heated up. The location is good as it only takes about 5 minutes to walk to the station and there's plenty of restaurants around. It's also easy to order take-out on yogiyo. I'd recommend this place to those who aren't picky about the look/feel of the room and just need a place to rest!

Decent Hostel.
This was a decent hostel. It has everything you need for your stay. The room is a bit small. The bed was clean and comfortable enough. The location of the hostel was great. A lot of convenient store and restaurant near by. Bus station is right outside and Seoul station is about 15min walk away.

Good 6.0
There was no-one at the reception when we arrived in the afternoon despite that the reception is supposed to be staffed then. After waiting for 15 minutes we finally had to call the given phone number so that we could check in. In total it took almost 30 minutes before we were able to do so. Unclear it this was normal or an exceptional occurrence since no reason for this was given. The staff was friendly when they were there which they were after that though. The double bed was uncomfortable - very hard and you could feel the hard springs in the bed. It is located relatively close to Seoul station - around 5 minutes by bus or 20 minutes walking up and down a hill.
