Nine of us stayed at Twins Minbak in July, and whilst we thought that the hostel was clean and efficient, we felt very uncomfortable spending time in the hostel which is very, very quiet and located in an extremely hot building. The lack of toilets (only one male, one female) became a real issue, especially as the female toilet was... More

Twins Minbak is clean and pleasant but not an extremely busy or exciting place to be. The dorms are priced reasonably. Niice location. Unexpectedly Korean. The bedsheets are ripped but decent and there seems to only be two single bathrooms- one men/one women. They accept both Euros and Swiss francs.

overall a decent hostel.... a bit pricey... good helpful staff..okay atmosphere...good beds and facilities... good place to crash for a night or spend a couple of days. a bit tough to find though in the night also the website is not updated completely so take the information there with a pinch of salt.

For first in a long time i felt so good about staying outside my home among so many people. Hosts are so warm and nice to you and even the guests who were staying especially the koreans. I wanted to continue my stay even though i had booked it only for one nite. I will surely go there to stay... More
