Very friendly owners & a great location for easy access to metro, food markets, central areas eg art gallery, the “underground” river/ canal etc. You can make free Korean tea & coffee, cook for yourself, there’s a fridge, the laundry use is free, there’s no curfew.
Only the bed was a little hard for me.
its for peoplel who are looking to travel alone, not a hostel where u can meet people or socialise with other people, but the rooms are good. location is near a train station and centrally located, one lively area nearby with good cafes and restaurants, not like those very touristy areas though. i whammed my nail into another room door badly (both facing room doors open outwards) but the lady was nice, she took me to a medical shop and paid for the pain killers. you have to push hard to pay by card if you want too. they usually want cash. overall good experience if you are looking to travel alone and don't want to meet people in your accomodation.
The room is clean and warm.
There is no elevator
Location, nice hosts, easy check in/check out, near several subways, near hip restaurants/bars
A good place for young backpackers who loves to eat. The hotel area is surrounded by lots of restaurants. At night there are Pojang Machas just at the end of the street with live seafood. lt's walking distance to Insadong and is near a lot of tourist sites.
The hotel is right beside a bar. So at night, there are a lot of drinkers and smokers loitering outside. The hotel is nicely soundproofed so that the noise outside cant be heard inside. The hotel is in an inner street and may be difficult to find on your own at first.
Located in Seoul (Jongno), Apple Backpackers is within a 15-minute walk of Jogyesa Temple and Cheonggyecheon. Featured amenities include a computer station, multilingual staff, and luggage storage.
