Liked: Very helpful english speaking staff (think they were from serbia, if I remember correctly). Well located near the food street. Laundry even with drying which other hostels sometimes lack.

Disliked: Lockers are not in the dorms, location is up a hill which could be a pain for people with more bags.

Liked: After trudging up hill, everything is up hill in Seoul the security door is flung open and you are greeted by Philip from Serbia with a big smile, who is sitting behind this big desk surfing Facebook or managing the hostels beds. Have a seat in the kitchen and you will soon learn all about Serbia. I was shown a short video on Serbian history via Youtube and later was introduced to Serbian accordian music, which really made me laugh. Philip is 20 and I didn't think people his age liked this kind of music.It is very close to the bar scene. You could easily stumble back here and crash out for a few hours.There are many foriegn food places not far away. Turkish seemed to be the cheapest and most available.

Disliked: It was on a hill, but then again, you are in South Korea everything is on some maze like hill anyhow.

Liked: Stayed in a double room that was in a separate building from the main part of the hostel. This was great since the the building we stayed in was very quiet at night. The beds were soft for Asia and comfortable. The staff was friendly, the showers nice, the location excellent and the room secure. I would highly recommend this place.

Disliked: It's a small thing but while the rooms had air conditioners, the hallways and bathroom didn't. But that's a tiny problem for a great hostel.

Liked: Clean and comfortable. Very close to the night life and a 2 minute walk to the subway. Staff were brilliant

Disliked: My room backed onto a road with bars on and due to no air con/fan had to keep the window open. Think I just got unlucky with the room though as other single rooms had air con

Liked: Great location, very clean, staff were super friendly. Rooms were cozy, clean, and everything seemed new.

Disliked: The downside to the hostel being in such a great spot was that the noise from the street was really loud and was that way until really late (4-5 AM). Made it difficult to sleep - might be quieter in the other building.

Liked: A great place for foreigners to feel more at home and comfortable while in Seoul as the owners are foreign themselves. The location doesn't get any better than SP when staying in Itaewon as it is only a few steps away from the main strip. The water dispensary fountain was also much appreciated.

Disliked: A bit lacking when it comes to the facilities (i.e. desktop computers, bathrooms, and the mattress they use is a flimsy thin mattress that isn't all that comfortable).

Liked: Location- very easy to find. Located near the main street in Itaewon.

Disliked: Itaewon is the foreigner district of Seoul and has a lot of drinking. A lot of the people at the hostel are westerners travelling in from other parts of Korea to get drunk there at the weekends. If this is your thing then great but wouldn't advise for older people or those wanting a good nights sleep!
