6/10 Good

I liked that it was close to Myeongdong, but that's about it. The room was slightly smaller compared to other hostels I stayed in, and the bathroom leaked into the bedroom if the shower hose wasn't placed strategically (the water pressure was also ridiculously hard). The toilet roll is also hard to access (you'll get what I mean). BUT, the staff was kind and friendly, and honestly for the price and location it's one of the better hostels if you're not too picky.

Great option especially when trying to save money
A short distance from all the touristy streets but convenient to everything. Newly 'remodeled' but still some work needed - the wall paper was peeling in our room. Staff was fabulous and very helpful, speaking very good English. Small rooms but hey, who is hanging out in
