Great value in the center of Seoul
Wow, we both were very impressed by this hostel. Great professionalism from the front desk team, small but sparkling clean rooms with wet room. Free buffet breakfast and complimentary water, tea and coffee at all times. The central location make it all as you’re in the middle of a cool and trendy neighbourhood with plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. Excellent value for money option. I’d stay there again with no hesitation.

Everything was great but we were not Able to consume the whole duration of our stay since we had to go home to the philippines on our 3rd day. So we were expecting to receive a refund for the 4 nights that we were not able to use but sad to say we were not refunded. There was a Threat for complete ban for filipinos Within the next 48 hours so we were forced to rebook our flights even if we wanted so Much to stay. When we asked the front desk they told me that they cannot make The refund. I Hope in some way you would try to Look into this matter since 4 Nights were Not used.
