Welcome to our hostel

If location, location, location is what you want, then Seoul International Youth Hostel is the place to stay. Located in Namsan Park, very close to the downtown area, Namsangol Traditional Korean Village and N-Seoul Tower are a 10 minute walk and Cheonggyecheon recreational park is a 15 minute walk.

Facilities include restaurant, self-catering kitchen, Internet access, laundry, rock-climbing site and a free pick up service by way of reservation. For a little bit of fun the hostel organises a ‘Gangnam Style’ tour! See the history of the Gangnam district and how much the area has changed.

Dongdaemun, Namdaemun Market, Insa dong and Gyeongbok Palace are all 10 minutes by subway. Also visit the Namsan Park which is one of the biggest parks in Seoul.

The staff was very nice and the cost was very affordable. The only area that I would have a negative comment about is that certain guests at this hostel stay late till 11pm/12am and make loud noises in the hallway.

다 좋았습니다만, 침구류가 너무 부스럭대는 재질이었어요. 감히 몸부림을 칠 수가 없었어요. 다른 사람들 수면에 방해될까봐서요.

Ideal hostel, a bit sterile but an excellent hostel The booking system needs to be fixed I was told that there was only one bed for one night . I was the only person in the room with about 8 beds and I expect that was the case for a while. Kind Regards Keith Dales
