This was the first time i have ever stayed in a hostel/back packers type accomodation, and was only due to the fact my budget was restricted as i was travelling onto Tokyo. I must admit i was pleasantly surprised by this place. The location is very convinient and literally a 2 minute walk from Hoehyeon station. Its also right opposite...

Very slow and lousy service. Staff wanted to collect more than what was reserved,and had to be pointed out to its website to furnish proper charge. The check-in at 2pm is also very elastic timing. We ended up waiting at the barren lobby for more than 1 hour!

I have a great stay at this hostel for 3 nights. The hostel is near to Nadaemon Market, just walking distance with many eateries. The room is clean and spaces compare with the previous budget hostel that I stayed before. Very near to subway station too, once you know how to take the subway, it's easy to explore Seoul. The...

The hostel is a nice cosy, budget accommodation for all. Room is clean and hotel is accessible if you know the right direction from the subway station. Staff is approachable and helpful. Many many eateries surrounding the hostel too. However, toilet was remarkably empty with no hooks, hangers, bars or shelves. No space to place any toiletries, towels or clothing.

I am experience travel from Australia and would not recomend booking this hostel. The hostel is very shabby ( for example the toilet dispenser fell off the wall ), sewer gases leaked into the bathroom and antiquated box television did not work normally. Location is not that exceptional and hostel is in a very narrow alley way where you have...

I stayed in Seoul Backpackers for 3 days before departing to Jeju. It's very near to subway. Make sure you took Exit 4 at Hoehyeon station cos it's the nearest exit. I booked triple room and it's quite spacious. They provide free tea and coffee but no breakfast. You can also do laundry with charge of KRW5,000. There is an...

Had a great time going around in Seoul. A memorable 4N/5D stay. The staff were great. Clean place, good value for money. Only 3min walk to the subway station. The Nandaemun market is just across the street.

This hostel was conveniently located few minutes from the subway. Basically, if you just need a place to drop your stuffs and be out all day to experience Seoul this is it! Not to be worried though, staff speaks limited english but is very accommodating with our DMZ tour arrangement. They have a driver who picks you up from hostel...

This is my first experience staying in backpackers & it has been a pleasant experience. We stayed at the 2nd floor (family room), where there's a queen sized bed & 2 bunk beds. Enough for 4 people. - value : 👍 - location : near subway. Get out from Hoehyeon station & exit at line 4. The hostel is just...
