Overbooked!!!!

They overbooked the room. That never happened me before! They moved me another hostel and gave me 4 person room instead of 6.

Alcoholic club

Posted Jun 28, 2016
Rude reception, and some of the staff would not even greet me back. I was told by several other guests that this was their regular place to come to Seoul to get drunk. I couldn't sleep at all on the second night.

Nice affordable hostel

Posted Feb 20, 2016
For the affordable price of Kimchee Hongdae Guesthouse, this hostel is a decent stay while staying in Hongdae. There are little eateries close by the hostel and to get to the subway and main happening spot in Hongdae, it takes about a 15 minute walk. It was hard to find at first, in a small alleyway, but the area is a quiet one. Service was nice and always willing to help. If you're looking for an affordable stay, this would be a place to consider. Although (as expected of what little you pay) there is no elevator and the bathrooms are kind of old. The walls are kind of thin, so you can hear what's happening in the bathroom too... Overall, an okay experience.

If you like disgust

Posted Nov 8, 2015 on Hotels
I was absolutely disgusted with this place. I was traveling over 3 weeks in Korea and I had stayed in numerous cheap hostels, but this place was by far the worst hostel I have ever been too. The floors have not been swept for months, the ways had water leaks with poor patching, and the bathroom sink leaked all its used water on the floor running right to your feet. The place has a drug house/brothel kind of appearance with how grungy it is. There were lots of mosquitos and I found brown spots on my pillow case. It was so gross that I couldn't stay anymore nights after the first night.
