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 hostel (public area, dormitory that I stayed at) is spotlessly clean and I had very good sleep during my stay. The front office staffs were very kind and helpful. Fellow guests, just be prepared for power walks up and down Namsan every time you leave and go back to the hostel, unless you get taxis to pick you up or send you back :) It was nice to get to walk in the area towards Chungmuro Station. :)
