    Great stay!”

    I had stayed here in the past and wasn't too impressed, but my have they improved! There's new management running the hostel, and they have done a great job upgrading and renovating the place. A full size bed, with personal wifi connection, tv, and a restroom in-suite at such a good price! The lounge is cozy and there's even breakfast included. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The location was good, just a short walk from the train station and easy access to anywhere in Seoul. There's also plenty of restaurants and convenience stores nearby. The staff are fantastic as well. They were very friendly and welcoming. Definitely recommend!

    This place ia like the Center of it all! Close to the Busy Area of Places to Visit but also Close to Residential and Local Places. This is something i really LOVE about this place. From Incheon Airport it is so easy to get there just take AREX then transfer to the Purple Line and go down to CHEONG-GU Station. If your on the Purple Line go to EXIT 1 if your on Brown Line go to EXIT 3, the Cheong Gu Station is a Transfer Station for Line 5 and Line 6. If your coming from the Airport take the ARWX then Transfer to Line 5 (Purple one) Going back to my review, i was so surpriaed how easy to find this place also i got overwhelmed by the place. I booked the 10Bed Dorm Type with Shared Bathroom. As an introvert i really didn't expect that it will be loud, but some of the guests are so loud around 1am to 3am. But its alright the Hostel provides Free Ear Plugs 😁 Living in a 10Bed Dorm is like having 9 other Siblings, all of them are friendly and respect each other in taking turns when using the bathroom. The Kitchen and Dining Area is Cute and Cozy and you can store food in t he fridge, just put your name and expiry date of the item so that when the staff checks it. It would be easier for them to clean. Also CLAYGO is a must (CLEAN AS YOU GO). Regarding the Staff, the Manager is Friendly but expect most of the time it is Self Service in this Hostel. That's because everything is provided to you at the Reception Area, just READ their NOTES. For FIRST TIMERS upon entering the Hostel, there's this Large Screen that has the FAQ's so please do READ for its a Self Check In. You can find your NAME and ROOM/BED Number PRINTED on the Sheet of PAPER at the LEFT SIDE of the SCREEN. BREAKFAST IS FREE AND VERY BASIC. EGGS, NOODLES, BREAD. COFFEE is available and WATER too. For USAGE OF TOWELS, a designated TOWEL BASKET is ASSIGNED for EACH Area and you can find it printwd on the top of the Towel Basket at the Reception area. I would give this Hostel an 8/10 and i will definitley staying here again. THANK YOU SO MUCH YAKOREA!

    Just right”

    I stayed in a 4 bed dormitory, they provide lockers for ur stuff, curtains on bed for privacy, and u share the bathroom as was just enough for 1 person to move around, more importantly, it was clean. It’s perfect for solo travel and ones in group..downside is being checked-in with a noisy room mate. But well, you can always pay more for a quieter room.. Will definitely be back here when I’m in Seoul. Kudos!

    You will have no problem checking in late here. There are instructions if you will check in with out the staff in the place The bed is good, it has locker and free amenities such as towel, toothbrush, shampoo and bodywash. The restroom is also clean so I definitely recommend it The only con is there is only one cr for the bedbunk room The train is also nearby. So you wont have a lot of problem if you have multiple suitcases
