It was Contact-less resting place.
A page with instructions and entry details with my name was outside the main door. Entered without any reception, and none was required. The place has clean sheets and stuff. Walls were with stains... For a place to sleep, and just sleep, this was fine. Cooking place was available bus without coffee or anything bread...! Stayed two nights with wife and baby!! Small double bed room. Subway and bus station were at walking distance. It was easy to go to dongdaemun or itaewon or Seoul Station.

Worn but cheap
We stayed 6 nights in a twin 'bunkbed' room. The accomodation was fair value as it was cheap, beds were comfy, had Aircon and although basic you got a free breakfast with coffee. There are downsides with it being cheap as it is pretty well worn. Our toilet was broken with the pump running water through the cistern all of the time, the fix was to turn the water valve off at night to stop the sound, but you then had to turn it back on to do the toilet, also the fan in the bathroom intermittently made a loud screeching sound and the toilet smelled after showering. The host was quick to respond when we highlighted issues and fixed what he could. If on a tight budget, it is ok for a few nights.

Avoid this hostel
TLDR: look for a another option. If their policy let us check out early and refund the remaining days we would have - and it was still a near thing. The good: it’s cheap, you’ve got your own bathroom, there’s wifi, toast and jam, your pretty close to bus and train stations and they let you to check in late even if through a flawed process (see “worst” below). The bad: It says there’s a partial reception - we were there 5 nights and we never saw anyone despite coming and going at varying times. It’s in a sketchy looking neighborhood. The hostel and rooms are also very run down and dirty looking. I’ve included pictures. In five nights, they did not change our sheets once despite appearing to (my bed was made once but a chocolate stain from the night before remained) and it was dusty under the bed. The worst: They have a poor security policies. Due to some travel delays we didn’t arrive at the hostel till well after check in. We’d emailed them last minute to inform them of this possibility but hadn’t received a reply back before we took off - they sent us a response with the entry code for the front door but we couldn’t reply because we’d lost our Internet and it was nearly midnight before we got it back. Likely because they hadn’t received a response, the hostel decided to take a laminated card with my name on it with the ENTRY CODE in it and TAPED IT TO THE FRONT DOOR. And that card looked reused. Needless to say, we kept our door bolted whenever we were there.

The location is great, very near subway and easy to take a bus. The host is so kind. He let us check-in before the time. Thank you.

Easy to get in and out. Great location. Good TV. But, "Continental Breakfast" is peanut butter and jam on toast. Bathroom and rooms really need cleaning. Coffee ran out.
