Not only that, the last minute plan...

Yeji, Yejin, Jiho and the rest of the staff were the best you will find in any hostel in the world. They are extremely friendly, helpful and hard working, ensuring that all the guests are happy and that the hostel is extremely clean.

Perfect place to stay if you're looking to get around Seoul. You'll have an easy access to the subway (about a two-minute walk from Hongik University) so communicating is a breeze. It's a walking distance from Hongdae where you can get the best street food and feel of the Korean youth culture.

“I prefer the rooms on the second floor because they are right beside the kitchen and the common room with computers.”

“Staying on the 3rd floor may be a little loud at night when people come and go, but I really didn't mind it. You meet a lot of different people when you stay on that floor.”

“The upper floor dorms also have the only kitchen and lounge, and the only access from below is via an outside stairway, so if you want to save constantly slipping shoes on and off, stay on the upper floor as I did, to have everything at your fingertips.”
