Budget hostel - not for the fussy
First of all, you have to set your expectation right. This is a hostel, not a hotel. Don't expect hotel comfort and service. Even though it does look a bit like a hotel, it certainly is not a hotel. There is no hotel lobby. You enter the hostel through an old office building and take the lift to 13 floor to the reception. The staff in this hostel speak fluent English and are friendly and helpful. The room is super tiny - the smallest room I have ever stayed in. For two person, it will be really cramp and if you have two big luggage, you will not have any space to walk.The toilet is even worse. It is at most 1.5m by 1.5m. There is basically no shower area. You have to shower in front of the basin and so your toilet will be all wet. You cannot throw toilet paper into the toilet bowl and will have to throw it in the bin. For room service and cleaning, you have to inform the hostel staff for them to clean your room. The walls are not concrete wall, they are false wall with soundproofing. Hence, you will be able to hear your neighbour talking. The breakfast is really simple (some bread, salad, corn soup) and you will be very disappointed if you are expecting a buffet spread. Having said all these, you will be able to save half your hotel lodging fees compared to the hotels nearby. The price is very affordable and the room is generally new and clean. The location is extremely convenient near to subway station and airport bus stop. Myeongdeong shopping street is below the hostel.

Nice Place, Great Staff, Better Kitchen Please
Nice hotel in a great local. The staff were kind and attentive. There was a troubling aspect to my stay, however. The common area saw breakfast served with guests tasked with cleaning their dishes. I noticed several guests not using soap and only giving their cups, dishes, and utensils a cursory rinse under the water. NO SOAP! The staff then told me that no further cleaning/disinfecting was done. THIS IS VERY TROUBLING DURING A HEALTH CRISIS. Anyway, I made sure to wish my cup beforehand after that.

Lovely hotel in a great location. It had an amazing view from the rooftop and the free breakfast was great. My only issue was that the bed was quite hard so it was uncomfortable, and the room was quite cold with no way to make it warmer.

Great value for money and close to everything.
A cosy little room but you are not in the room often only to sleep. View was pretty cool. Breakfast was great. staff were friendly and it’s so close to Myeongdong shopping street. They were doing renovations but that didn’t deter from our enjoyment. Bathroom was tiny but the shower was good. For the price I would say it’s great value for money.

My stay here overall was pretty good for the price I paid. It is in a great location. A couple minutes walk from Exit 5 at Myeongdong Station, Myeongdong Night Market, and shops/restaurants. The staff were nice, helpful, and spoke English. Breakfast is included and the options each day were great. The room was decently sized and had two sources of heat: one over head and one large space heater. Not

Location is brillant. Just off the busy myedongong street . Very near to bus stand for limo bus to the airport. The staff can speak english and they do almost every thing. The dinning area is open at all hours and we could have free coffee and tea, use their crockery for our take away, subject to us washing up of course. The only thing I could not get use to is the tiny bathroom. Its even smaller than the bathrooms in Japan. The door is literally at my knees when I sit on the toilet and I am 5 foot 5". But other than that everything is fine.
