Great value for money and close to everything.
A cosy little room but you are not in the room often only to sleep. View was pretty cool. Breakfast was great. staff were friendly and it’s so close to Myeongdong shopping street. They were doing renovations but that didn’t deter from our enjoyment. Bathroom was tiny but the shower was good. For the price I would say it’s great value for money.

Seriously no atmosphere at all....
Staff are nice, rooftop terrace is nice, the local area is nice... There is just absolutely no atmosphere in the place....Not ideal for the solo traveller.

Economical choice
Cheap hotel in the myeongdong area. Issac toast is just around the corner, and the train station is just a few min walk. Breakfast was surprisingly not just bread and cereal. There were wieners, eggs, cheese and salad. Room was decent , but felt unclean somehow with the marks on the walls and stains on the sheets.

Think twice before booking
Room temperature cannot be controlled. Super shivering cold, need to even wear a sweater and jacket to sleep. Toilet is tiny, hardly can turn around. Sink and shower is attached obviously to save space. Will not return. Location was perfect for shoppers at Myeongdong though. A part of the room does not have blinds near the toilet and outside can view in if you're changing clothes....a big no no !!

Great location!!!!!
Overall nice place. Very small but you get what you pay for. No regrets. Close to everything and everywhere staff very friendly. 24/7 corner store around the corner. Restaurants everywhere. Check out pink mart right next to the hotel cheap souvenirs. Breakfast is good. And you wash your own dishes very fun actually!!!!!

Budget hostel - not for the fussy
First of all, you have to set your expectation right. This is a hostel, not a hotel. Don't expect hotel comfort and service. Even though it does look a bit like a hotel, it certainly is not a hotel. There is no hotel lobby. You enter the hostel through an old office building and take the lift to 13 floor to the reception. The staff in this hostel speak fluent English and are friendly and helpful. The room is super tiny - the smallest room I have ever stayed in. For two person, it will be really cramp and if you have two big luggage, you will not have any space to walk.The toilet is even worse. It is at most 1.5m by 1.5m. There is basically no shower area. You have to shower in front of the basin and so your toilet will be all wet. You cannot throw toilet paper into the toilet bowl and will have to throw it in the bin. For room service and cleaning, you have to inform the hostel staff for them to clean your room. The walls are not concrete wall, they are false wall with soundproofing. Hence, you will be able to hear your neighbour talking. The breakfast is really simple (some bread, salad, corn soup) and you will be very disappointed if you are expecting a buffet spread. Having said all these, you will be able to save half your hotel lodging fees compared to the hotels nearby. The price is very affordable and the room is generally new and clean. The location is extremely convenient near to subway station and airport bus stop. Myeongdeong shopping street is below the hostel.

Stayed in a standard twin room, even though I was travelling alone. For someone of big size like me, I find the room space acceptable. Bed was comfy n even though toilet was a bit compact, I had no complains. Love the view from the full length window.
