Shinchon Hostel
Ranked #93 of 587 Speciality Lodging in Seoul
Reviewed 14 February 2012

It was our first time to go to Korea and we really loved it there. Shinchon Hostel is perfect because it is near Ehwa Women's University subway station which makes it much easier to get to other places. There is a lot of shops around it for shoes, clothes, accessories & many other items. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can also cook & eat all you can at the kitchen.
When we come back, we will surely stay in this Hostel again! 2 Thumbs up!!! =)

As they say in real estate, location is everything. The Shin Chon Hostel has the best location anyone could ask for! It's right near Line 2 and has a ton of great restaurants and shops nearby that make for a great time.

My wife and I stayed at the Shin Chon Hostel for 11 days, and it was really the best spot we've been since we left the United States. There is a nice big common area downstairs with a kitchen, computers to use the Internet, and a big flat screen TV to relax. The rooms are really great too, with nice, comfortable beds and floors that are heated.

The guys who run the place are very helpful and speak Korean, Japanese, Chinese, and English. They are full of great tips on Seoul and were wonderful hosts. For someone who is looking to jump right into Seoul, the Shin Chon Hostel is the perfect place to start.

Room Tip: rooms on the 1st floor are right next to the front desk, and thus are somewhat loud.
