Pros: Super easy to get to from the airport on the airport bus. Love the area that it's in with the palaces close by, and the subway extremely convenient. The ten bed female dorm was actually this set of cubbies and not bunks, which gave the feeling of more privacy, and my dorm mates were pretty quiet but friendly. Like the roof terrace. Cons: No sink in the room, bring your own towel. Tons of school kids arrived at 11pm and left at 8am, which I found a little bit strange.

it's easy to access public transfortation and somewhere to see. The room for interational was clean and good to sleep and stay..and safe. ther is a town of Bookchon. Bookchon is a place of some Korean traditional houses there. so although i'm Korean., it hasn't visited a lot or i could not remember i was been there. it's very good to stay. I recommend you.

The space restaureant and common area is very limited and the restaurant is connected with the receiption area, it seems the space is not enough to accommodate all in one time especially during the breakfast time. And the dust bin is our room is not clean up every day, even when we placed it outside in the corridor, the cleaner also outlook and didn't remove the rubish. On the shole this is a good hostel and I will recomment it to others.

I especially want to thank a staff member by the name of Ji Hyo/ Ji Yen who went over and above the Korean hospitality to assist us during our stay. Her kindness and willingness to assist left a deep impression in me. Thank You so much Ji Hyo ssi!!
