Very good 8.0
Ideally Located
The staff were very friendly and helpful the hostel was right next to the metro so was ideal for me to get around. Place is clean and plenty of hot water. All in all had a pleasant if short stay.

Fair 4.0
Poor service
Nothing like what it showed in the pictures. I was very disappointed with the front desk. This male staff with the tattoo is very rude as I had some questions to ask.Actled he is letting me stay there for free and doing me a favour.

Clean and good but a bit inconvenient
The hostel was okay, but the reasons I decided to move to another hostel were: toiletries were watered down, guest towel cabinets were empty, no electric outlet at my bed (not any extension cord). Apart from that the room and bed were pretty clean, and other travelers were friendly and easy to talk to! This hostel has a communal area to hang out, making it easy to make new friends. The train station is one minute from the hostel, and it’s really easy to get to anywhere around Seoul.

A basic stay
An ok place. There are a total of 4 toilets and 8 showers total for who knows how many guys to share-so it is possible that you'll have 2 wait...rooms pretty basic-which is normal among hostels. Lounge seems comfy and kitchen to use. The location is very good-walkable to all major spots. overall it served it purpose:)
