My room (109), smelled a bit like a wet cloth that didn't dried properly and the first floor male bathroom smelled sometimes. The personal was friendly and the people too.

It's very useful for guests to go this hostel easily from an exit of a subway.

I was at a loss to find the front desk. It was in the basement. The direction should be needed to inform the front desk. フロントの場所がわかりづらかったです。地下にあると言うことをわかりやすく出して欲しかったです。

Vvery conveniently located outside Cheungjeungono station in downtown Seoul,the lavatories smelt a bit.Liked the fact that there's no curfew,the personnel are fabulously helpful.They organised the DMZ tour for me.Good self-serving kitchen,smokers' room,Would have loved to go on a pub crawl.Evidently,as the receptionist lady told me;it had just concluded the day before my arrival.Would have liked a free breakfast,considering that I booked hostels at Busan and Gyeongju at similar prices.
