    Property condition


    • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

    The entry and stairs was scary. Listing wasn't super obvious that this was a hostel/guesthouse. The room was tiny. Also advertised with breakfast included when it didn't offer it.

    Stayed 1 night in May 2019

    Good Location !

    4/5 Good

    Excellent for the money, convenient location

    For what you pay, it's worth it. Clean, adequate room. Conveniently located, right in front of a central subway stop. Many restaurants nearby and a 7-11 right downstairs.

    Pros: Expedia

    Cons: bigger rooms but then rates may go up

    Location: lots of eateries nearby, not high end ones though. Good as a staging area to explore Seoul if you use the subway

    Stayed 2 nights in Jul 2017

    5/5 Excellent

    Best value for your buck! 5 Star Hotel Standard

    Size of Room Rooms are generally quite squeezy but they are very well designed to store your big luggages! We had a double bed room with minimum walking room space. However, it was able to store 4 relatively big luggages nicely. Toilet Toilet space isn't skimped on as well! There was enough leg room for your business. They also have a great toilet bowl = Warm toilet seat with automated bottom washing mechanism. It was a joy to doing business in the toilet! My gf complained I spent too much time in the toilet than I spent time with her. Doors are also rubber sealed at the edge to prevent water from splashing out of the toilet when you shower. There is also a ingenious bund to keep water from flowing out from bottom seam of the door. No bath tub in our toilet, but that wasn't an issue for us. Water heating was fantastic as well. I didn't need to wait too long for the water to heat up (winter time). Facilities There is a nice cosy corner on the top floor of the accommodation to cook your meal. They provide the basic kitchen facilities you will need - water basin, microwave, heating element, cups, utensils etc. There is also a small table to sit about 8 people at any one time for you to have a warm quick meal. Location: Location is fantastic! It is basically just right next to Exit 4 of Dongdaemun History and Culture Park! You can also reach the location from Incheon by bus 6001. Drop in front of the Tokyo-Inn.com. and 20 steps away from there.

    Pros: Everything!

    Cons: Towels provided can be a little bigger. Hard to differentiate floor mat with the shower towels.

    Location: Shopping at Doota, AM PM Place, Migilone and many mroe shopping malls there!
