Amazing 11/10 stay
From check in to check out everything was amazing. The host was very nice and friendly, let me check in early and we even chatted a little before I headed out for the day. Room: The room was very cute, extremely clean, and amenities + water bottles were provided. I had my own private bathroom which was great. There was AC and heating, and floor heating as well. It was cozy, enough space for my suitcase and shopping bags. Location: It's in a great location! Myeongdong is a great place to go shopping and it was in walking distance so I could shop and then walk back to drop off all my bags and then head somewhere else. The station was maybe a 4-5 min walk away? It is up a hill so if you have some mobility issues then it might be a little hard. Also, in winter it is a little slippery but not very bad. Overall, this was an awesome place to stay! Very cute, clean and convenient. Will definitely book again in the future and recommend to all my friends !

8/10 Very good

The host/staff let me store my luggage for a few hours before the check in time and after my check out so that was very nice. The hostel was clean in general, the lobby was very spacious with lots of chairs to sit around and there's a corner with a good collection of LPs. I was also able to use their washing machine/dryer during my stay free of charge. Although I stayed in a room with no windows, it has 2 twin size beds so there was a lot of space for me to put my things. The small bathroom doesn't have a divider between the toilet seat and shower area so everything gets wet. There are also instances where the water from the shower seeps through the bathroom door so I had to face the nozzle away from the door. No breakfast is included when I stayed but there are coffee and sandwich shops down the street. The hostel is 6 mins walk to the myeongdong subway station, the local bus stops and airport bus stop. At night when walking the street towards the hostel I could see namsan tower at the top of the mountain. Overall my stay was comfortable and the staff was really attentive and always ready to help. Thank you and keep up the great work!

6/10 Good

Staff seemed pleasant. Check in was easy, check out took a little longer as I had to wait for someone to show up to the front desk and there was no means for calling them once at the front desk. Property was very secure. The room we stayed in was very small, and the bathroom/shower area was minuscule, but was well kept. The towel provided was more like a flannel, but it lasted for our 5 day stay. The first morning I showed up to breakfast I arrived at the start and nothing was prepared yet, and had to serve myself whilst everything was put out. Selection was always the same every day. Bread, that can be toasted. Cheese slices, jam, butter. Two types of cereal. Milk. Water dispenser. Coffee machine. Orange Juice. Also there was a basket of eggs, and 2 utensils for making scrambled eggs. Me and my girlfriend wanted to try on the traditional clothing that is available in this dining area also. Unfortunately though there was only female clothing available. It was fun, and was a nice extra experience to the hostel. Overall it was a pleasant stay. We spent most our time in Korea away from the hostel, so it sufficed as somewhere just to come home too and sleep. The main plus of this hostel is its location. It is very easy to get too from the nearby subway station. Takes just 5-10mins to walk there, and has many places on the road to eat, and get supplies. It is ideal for walking to the nearby markets, and to Seoul Tower. The subway nearby can easily take you anywhere you like.

The check-in process was smooth by friendly staff name Jenny if I'm not mistaken. The room wasn't same as shown by pictures during booking process so we're not feel happy. Breakfast was great.

Perfect location but shower room is too small
It’s very enough to stay for sightseeing and shopping around this perfect area. However, we needed to wait staff to check in for 10min and the shower room is quite small with toilet, we needed to wipe after using shower.

2/10 Poor

Not worth the price!
First and last visit. The triple room is very small for a family of 3 (its like a room for 1 adult only), different from the images uploaded. Limited space in room to put luggage, bathroom, hang clothes. Broken bed (not firm) and plug extension. Duvet cover is bad (easily messed up). Cheap mirror.

Starria is the best ! close with everything and they give you breakfast which super awesome except there were 1 time it was very late. they prepare at 8:30am but its fine, at least they extend the breakfast time. laundry is 3000won and they do everything for you and your cloths smells good too. the lift is the major catch for this place !! love it. super convenient. the staff are helpful but not as friendly, probably cause they don't speak good English. but anyways, sometimes I even scared to speak to them cause they don't really smile. but other than that everything is good. Don't mind to comeback and recommend the place.
