If you are planning to explore Seoul, South Korea, JIN Guesthouse is a good choice for your low budget. The guesthouse near the Chungmuro Subway Station (just walk around 5 minutes) Cinema, foods stall, Korea House, Namsanggol Village, 7 Eleven, Burger King and Family Mart. The guesthouse so very clean and their staff super duper friendly.

I wasn't having doubts on a guesthouse, but eventually it turned out great!

Therefore it forced us to have breakfast somewhere else before someone wakes...

I stayed for 3 nights. The place is very DIY... and more like you just crash at one of the bunks at someone's apartment in a mid-rise building with bunch of other travelers. For me it worked, as I almost never slept. There's a cool rooftop where people gather and socialize. Since it's not a typical hostel, no crazy parties...

The guesthouse is conveniently located behind the Korea House near the Chungmuro station at downtown Seoul. There is a convenience store in front, so you don't have to go far to find your necessities. It also near key places of interest such as Myeongdong, N Seoul Tower, Dongdaemun, and a stop for the limousine bus to the airport. The service...
