I think this hostel had the best style of security. Your security code is sent only through email after you book. The owner speaks English and is very friendly and accommodating. The hostel is self service but has everything such as breakfast, shampoo, toothpaste etc. The location is easy to find. Convenient in getting a bus or taxi. Has 24hr...

I have lived in Korea for 14 months and stayed in many hostels. This one is the best. We recently stayed here for 3 nights in a double room.

Centrally located, surrounded by shops and restaurants, only a short walk to the intercity bus terminal, and bus stops for routes within the city are just nearby. For the room, it's very very basic, mine had the mattress (thick one though) placed on the floor as a bed or tatami however you want to call it.

Mr. Chung-hee's place is very homey, warm and cozy. You wake up and take your breakfast listening to the soothing strains of classical music. Breakfast consists of homemade bread, homemade jams (cinnamon is my favorite), grilled eggs, yogurt, orange juice and coffee/tea. For anyone who has forgotten to bring vitamins for the trip, Mr. Chung-hee has an array of vitamins...

“The Single rooms are not big but have their private bathrooms and they are clean and nice. The Bunker (dorm) rooms are very nice. There is enough space for your backpack next to the bed and the bed is very big and comfortable.”
