Cheap hotel, nothing more

Posted Mar 22, 2018
The hotel is very cheap and that's the only good thing to it. The door was not able to lock, so when i had to leave i had to take all my belongings with me. The TV was not working. The room was very dirty, not cleaned since long time ago and under bed plenty of trash like tissues, bottle, ect. The location on the other hand is ShinChon wich is a good neighbourhood with plenty of clothing shops and more. Ewhra Woman University Station on line 2 of Seoul Subway is 3 minutes away from the hotel. The staff has permitted to me to send a parcel to their adress and i was able to pick up this parcel afterwise. Cooperative staff. So in final, the cheapness of this hotel and the cooperativ staff are the only good thing about him. Book this hotel only for the very cheapness.

First time in a Hostel.

Posted Jul 3, 2017
Pros: Strong AC. Good location. Close to subway. Friendly staff.
Cons: Beds were hard and uncomfortable. Towels were too small.
Location: Great places to eat close by such as "Waffle it Up", and good street vendor food. Lots of women's clothing and cosmetics shops close by.
Let me first say that the staff was friendly and had a pretty good grasp of English. They helped set up a transport for us to get to the airport on the last day. The Air Conditioner worked very well, which I was concerned about before making the trip due to all the reviews I had read from Hotels in Seoul stating that the AC was generally poor. Our room AC kept our room very cool. Our bed was very hard and uncomfortable. The bunk beds for our daughters were also hard. The towels were very small. They were the size of hand towels here in the US. You could use as many as you liked however. The location was very good. The area around us was filled with shopping and eating places. we were within about a five minute walk from the subway which we used every day. We had a working mini refrigerator in our room which was also nice. There was a microwave in the kitchen area in the basement that we used as well. Our room was in a fairly run down building, but fairly clean. The water pressure fluctuated a great deal which caused problems for a family not used to a "wet bath" in the first place. We were very pleased with the price. This fact, and the fact that this was our first trip abroad and our first time staying in a hostel, makes me reticent to state much more from a negative stand point. However, I think our next trip abroad we will be staying in a good hotel and plunk down the extra money for more comfort and amenities.

First time to stay at hostel in Seoul.

Posted Sep 28, 2016
Location is okay, easy to reach. Staff is helpful when you have question. Breakfast room - too crowded, every morning you have to grab your breakfast. (dish/cup/cooking tools not clean up by user). Room - there are insects moving around, sheet not clean, floor dirty, shower position awesome. I have been stayed at hostel in Japan, they are cleaned and tidy, facility is in good condition.

It is value for money. Near train and bus stations. Lot of restaurants around the place and they also close late at night.

Budgeted hostel provided all basic facilities needed.. Towel & drinking water are also provided. Located in the shopping district of Ehwa U, various convenient stores around. Not far from subway.

It was end of winter and its all good. Though its hard to find halal food in the area. Nice that the hostel provide facilities for us muslims in the pantry. Close enough with the subway station to go out and explore. Great stay and look forward for the next visit anytime soon.
