Very friendly staff! Even though there was a fun and bustling neighborhood just outside the building, my room was very quiet. Close to both Insadong and Gwangjang Market. I will definitely stay here again.

One of the best part of my recent trip to Korea was Hostel Beige. The room was soooooooooooo comfortable and hotel staff were courteous and kind. I loved the softness of the bed spread. The decors were trendy and not cheap looking.
I thought I was going to get 2 star ( mediocre) rated motel service and comfort level but I felt more comfortable here than any other 5 star hotel.s I stayed before. Its location is near 3 subway stations. 5 minutes to Dongdaemoon market on foot. Best restaurants locals hang out. Yes, the restaurants ( or eating joints) are not fancy but if you go for the taste, they have the best ones here near the hostel. The hotel price is reasonable. The airport limousine bus stop is right across the hostel. There are lots of fun street vendors. However, if you are prince and princesses, this area may not work for you but if you are visiting Korea to experience the local culture and food, this is the place to be.

This hotel is great for people who want to stay slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but still be close to sightseeing spots, great food, cafes, and transport. The winter weather was chilly, but the rooms remained nice, cosy and restful. Seoul has a lot of great cafe spots, and we recommend those in Bukchon and Samcheongdong, which are both a leisurely stroll from the hotel.

The location is the best part although I heard from room mates that it's a bit hard to find at first as the entrance is on a road that looks more like an alley. I arranged the airport pick up for a fee and was met by the owner, who reliably waited as my plane was late and customs took a while. You can take the airport bus or use the metro. Both have stops that are quite close to this hostel.
At check in your bags are carried to your room, which is nice if you are on the higher floors.
I found the staff to be friendly and willing to please but they have difficulty with English so we had some communication short circuits. I stayed almost 2 weeks purely due to the great location. For help with sightseeing there several tourist information booths in the vicinity and I got lots of help there with along with booklets, maps and so on. This was much easier, and a better source of information, than asking the staff. Also, the main tourism office is roughly a 10 minute walk away (keep walking past the post office) and offers free 3 minute phone calls, internet and more. The entrance is below street level. There are lots of banks nearby also.
Another good thing is the free use of a washing machine. Clothes spin dry quite well. Finding places to put your clothes out to dry is another matter, but still, its nice added value. I also appreciated the hot and cold water dispensing machine available for guests. I refilled my water bottle from this frequently and had no tummy troubles

"Apartment Hotel, quiet area but easily accessible"
The staff here is so sweet. My wife and I loved interacting with them, everyday. And the apartments are beautiful lofts. Way better than staying at any hotel. It was only a few minutes walk to hyehwa station, too! So my wife and I were able to get around Seoul, like champs. We will stay here again and recommend everyone look at staying here.
