    All necessary provided and also clean.

    Next room talking in the midnight 2am and I can hear very clearly and it really noisy. Sound insulation no good, so I suggest must set after 12am, not allow to open TV or talking phone. That will disturb next door.

    The location was very convenient close to the subway line 1 and 6. The atmosphere was nice and cozy. I liked the design of the room and it was quite clean. I had my own washing machine in my room, amazing!! overall a good experience :)

    I usually don't mention things like that, but the matress was really terribly hard, not very comfortable... The walls were quite thin, you could hear everything from the room next doors. The staff was not very helpful and seemed a bit unprofessional. The kitchen space was very tiny. When more than 4 guest want to have breakfast at the same time, it's a bit chaotic...

    I really like how attentive and helpful the staff and owner to our needs. Our flight got delayed for 4hrs so we arrived at the hostel around 4 am. When I messaged them about the flight delay, they were courteous enough and made sure our airport service knows about our new arrival schedule. It was a smooth experience for us from the airport until we checked in since the owner was on standby. She has walked us through on the self check-in process though it was already 4 in the morning. Aside from the cute and home-like vibe of the hostel, it is also conveniently situated to a train station, shopping and grocery stores, and restaurants. It's also one station away from Dongdaemun and same line to City Hall and other key places in the city. Breakfast is really good as well! I will definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who wanted to have a good accommodation in Seoul. ♥️

    I hope there's an elevator in the building so it would be much easier to bring the luggages in and out of the room. But the owner also set our expectations before arrival so it wasn't that much of a surprise. :)
