    Home away from home. There is something magnetic about this place.

    Can't think of a dislike.

    Birdsnest is like a second home to me. Been staying there for weeks/months, spread out over 2 years. The prices are great and the staff becomes like a family. I always hangout in the livingroom just talking, watching tv and occasionally eating and partying together. If want quiet the upper floor is usually silent and calm. It's walking distance to the center part of hongdae and the subway. And the area near the hostel have alot of beautiful small coffee shops and restaurants.

    Rooms are a bit small so not much space to store items. Beds on the harder spectrum.

    The comfy atmosphere and nice staff!

    The restroom may be slightly messy because of other guests. I guess it really depends on your luck.

    The location is great. The French man who checked me in was helpful, friendly, and very kind.

    At around 1am, another staff member checked a couple in our dorm room. They were Chinese but spoke Russian exclusively. The girl had to be carried because she was so drunk, and the staff member still checked them in. The staff member was literally walking this couple around as the man carried the passed out woman. As soon as she was thrown on the bed she vomited. At least 3 times that night she was screaming and vomiting and the guy she was with kept calming her down. This woman should have never been let into this hostel. She could have died from alcohol poisoning or perhaps may have been raped by the man she was with as she was drifting in and out of consciousness. This is unacceptable and I have no idea how it happened. I wanted to ask for a refund but I simply left the hotel at around 5am.
