Liked: We arrived after reception was closed but the staff gave me detailed instructions on how to get in and also left a welcome sign and my room key for me. :)The room was spotlessly clean and everything we needed was provided for us.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Great hostel. It was in a convenient location close to Gyongbokgun Palace, Insadong, etc. We could walk to most major places around the area within a 20-25 minute walk (the palace was only 15 minutes away). I appreciated how clean the place was too. I would recommend this hostel to a friend.

Disliked: Nothing, really. It was a modern hostel so if you are looking for a more traditional Korean style location, this would not be it. Also, Korean style showers are bathroom-shower combination rooms, meaning you shower in the same area as the bathroom/sink area. Not bad, but everything gets wet so be aware.

Liked: The place is lovely and nicely decorated. My room is clean and there is free wifi and towel. Staff is friendly and she does a great job in explaining the facilities of the hostel.

Disliked: The location is shown wrongly on Hostelbookers' map. It appears to be close to Seoul station on the map, but in reality it is close to Anguk metro station. I chose the hostel because I thought it's close to Seoul station, so I was not very pleased when I found out the actual location.
