I stayed here for 2 nights and the host made the stay feel like home. We had Korean makkerli and talked about jokes until 2am.. The room is comfortable and hot enough to have a pleasent sleep in winter, the public area is huge and with great view to the sea. The host is pretty passionate to help everyone reach...

Popcorn Hostel is the dirtiest hostel I have ever stayed in (and have stayed in more than 100 worldwide), they never clean the rooms, the lounge the kitchen or bathrooms. I had to find a broom by myself and sweep up days or possibly weeks or dirt from next to my bed. See attached photo. Dirt is not the only...

Our friends recommended this hostel but we were very disappointed when we arrived. It is very poorly maintained and managed. We booked it because of the bunk bed in the private family room for our daughters. We found our room dusty. My daughter looked under the double bed and it was very dirty with dust balls and trash. Parts of...

If you want a regular bed then you should be in a shared room with multiple beds. I stayed in a single private room. It is just a bedroom and a bathroom. It is very much a traditional Korean room. The mattress is a fold up type on the floor. You unfold it and put your sheets and blankets on...

We were upset to find this beautiful hostel in a very bad state of neglect. So many things here are broken or non-existent. It started with the bed in our double-bed room, which was missing entirely. Instead, the mattress was just lying on the floor. Then, it appears that parts of the toilet are missing too. The next morning we...

We stayed here for 3 nights in December and had a great stay. The staff were friendly, the breakfast was adequate and the dorm room was perfect for us. Location is great right near the beach with lots of restaurants around and close to the metro station. It was all very clean and I would highly recommend it!

The first impression of this hostel is the reception guy has spent time to take care of us and all guests and he can speak English very well. I went there for 3 persons and stayed together in a room with private bathroom..The room is wide and comfy, the place is near Heaundae beach and easy for transportation. Will stay...

This hostel was clean, classy and in a great location. I travelled at off season and so there were only 5 guests staying in the hostel when I visited. As such the atmosphere was somewhat lacking but the staff were friendly and gave good recommendations. Would definitely recommend to others and would love to visit in the summer.
