Very good location and friendly staff. Room was okay but the bathroom could be cleaner. Should at least provide some basic amenities such as hand soap and shower lotion.

Worth to stay here with this price!
This hostel is very close to Jongno 3 (sam) ga Exit 6 subway station. It is an underground subway station on lines 1, 3 and 5. It is very convenient to travel to many places without interchange. There is no daily housekeeping during our stay but we are allowed to change new face and shower towels daily. I'm not sure why there is weird smell on the towels, maybe they should use perfume detergent to create better scent on the towels? The breakfast is pretty simple; bread, biscuits, eggs and jam. There is a convenient store just opposite of the hostel, so you can grab anything easily by few foot steps. You can top up your T-Money card at the convenient store too. There are many eateries nearby the hostel, we noticed that most of the customers in the restaurants or stalls are local people. The room is small and it will be difficult for you to walk in the room if you are using big luggage bag. The washroom is very small and it is advisable to hold the shower head to avoid everything to get wet in the washroom. The staffs are very friendly and able to communicate with us in English. Overall there is nothing to complaint with this price as the hostel is located at a strategic location.

Fair 4.0
Staff - tell nothing to the guests regarding the self-serve utensils or amenities — if u are not doing housekeeping, you need to let me know where are the new bed sheets or rubbish bags. And when I asked this to the staff they are a bit irritated. Amenities - No cups (only small ones in paper can be found in lobby) or bowl or kitchen utensils. Nothing except a bed basically Breakfast - just bread, boiled eggs and small biscuits? The worst free breakfast I have ever seen that I would rather not to eat Cleaniness - the pillow cases are so dirty, the floor is dirty, and not to mention the bathroom Location - the only thing that is counted as fair, not very close to the subway, but it has a pretty chill neighbourhood Overall, definitely the worst hostel experience I have ever had. You are charging low but it doesnt equal to poor service quality.

A good choice for short stay
Pros: Staffs were friendly and helpful. Convenience store is just infront of the entrance. Toilet is a bit small to me. Subway station is interchange of 3 lines- very convenient to go anywhere. Lots of cafe & bars nearby. Cons: nearest subway station has no elevator & escalator. Not recommended if you’re bringing heavy luggage. Girls be careful and travel in a group. One night, there’s someone following us at night when we’re heading to the hostel ㅠㅠ it was around 9pm.
