Among the youth hostels I've stayed in this has been among the best (I've stayed in youth hostels in the US, Canada, Portugal), certainly in terms of price and location. I'm paying about $15 a night for a 10-person dorm room and while it's off peak there's only about 4 others in the room. The rooms are cleaned every day, there's little noise to bother, and the hostel is located right near Namsan and Namdaemun, Myeongdong, where I usually walk to for dinner. There's a shower and bathroom combo unit inside the room, and solid lockers and power converter rentals too.
If you do take the 6015 bus from the airport, the driver might not speak English, so be sure to remember Astoria Hotel, which is close enough to the hostel.
No breakfast, though I think you can pay at the restaurant at the lobby.More
