Liked: Close to nightlife area and subway station. Not that expensive. The double bed was a good size.

Disliked: There are better hostels in the area. Front door is not locked have to keep shoes outside of the house so have to make sure they dont get wet if it rains.

Liked: Great hostel, the staff was super friendly and always willing to help and give suggestions. The common area was really easy to hang out in and meet other travelers and the dorm room I stayed in was nice and clean. Wifi worked from my bed which was really nice. Everyone goes out together on weekends so it's an awesome place to go if you wanna party!

Disliked: the water in the shower kept switching between hot and cold, that's all though

Liked: It's located near Hongik University, so perfect for those who like to party. It's also rather central in Seoul, so it was easy and comfortable to get around the city to go sightseeing.

Disliked: We stayed in the basement which was always full of mosquitos. There was a computer and a TV, both didn't work, and the bathroom was tiny. The showerhead was right between the sink and the toilet bowl with barely any space between, so you had to be really careful to not get your clothes all wet.
