It's a wonderful place, the owner and his wife are really nice and they helped me a lot. The location is great near the subways station and there is a lot of restaurant and coffee shops. The rooms are good. Thanks MJ & Geoffrey.

Stayed there for 6 days with my wife. Room was nice and the staff were friendly although some of them cannot speak English. With free breakfast when you stay, just ask them or go to level 1 by 7:30am. Will come back again for sure

Stayed here for 10 days. Firstly, it wasn't that easy to find due to it being in a small street and there was only a small A4 size paper signage pasted outside a convenience store on the main road. The locals around the area couldn't exactly pinpoint us to the correct location as well. Upon entering the guesthouse, it had...

This hostel is very well situated (right next to Hoehyeon tube station and Nandaemun Market) although a little difficult to find at first. It is also very close to N Seoul Tower.

We stayed at Seoul Backpackers from April 13 to April 20, 2014. We arrived at the hostel around 7 a.m. However, we learned that the hostel opens at 8 a.m. So we waited for an hour to arrange our stay and deposit our luggage. It's very accessible since it's located near Hoehyeon Station (Exit 4) and Nandaemun Market. Lotte Mart...
