Its a comfortable hostel with clean facilities. The bed covers were white and fresh, and all the facilities were quite new. There is a bakery cafe conveniently located on the first floor for quick breakfast or coffee. One thing is the location as it the subway stations are a distance away and there are not many choices for restaurants.

I like the management system of this hostel. As I was a single tourist who stayed in three beds/room, the hostel did not put others to bother me. It makes this trip more convenient and impressive. However, breakfast cost (7,700 Won) is a bit expensive for students like me. I strongly hope they revise this cost in the near future to benefit all of the guests. The location of the hostel is quite far from metro.
