Fabulous 8.8 From 53 reviews

Very good 8.0
I've stayed here a couple of times. The owner is very nice, and they have a good breakfast. The bed wasn't the most comfortable. For the price I would have liked a little better bed, but I still liked the place enough to return. It's Close to the subway.

Loved it! Staff was super friendly and helpful and we loved the fat orange cat. Kitchen has good selection of free condiments. Floor heating was really nice, room was super warm. In a really cool artsy area with tons of restaurants. The underground bar across the street is cool. Highly recommend!

위치가 좋아요~
위치가 좋았습니다. 3호선 안국역에서 가까워 대중교통으로 다니기 좋고 경복궁, 운현궁, 북촌은 걸어서 다닐 수 있었습니다 인사동 골목 자락인 것도 좋고요. 호스트께서도 친절하셔서 편히 지냈습니다. 아침도 좋았는데 테이블이 조금 작아 아쉬웠습니다. 다음에도 머물 의향 있습니다.

場所はアングク駅6番出口から二分です。設備は古いですが必要なものはそろっています。正式な名前はINSA HOSTELです。価格から考えて納得していますので、次回も利用します。
