    This place is nice. They have a big-unusual-shower room which made quite experience. The receptionist was good. She was friendly and helping. They provide free towel in case you forgot one. The place is about 10 mins from Hyehwa Station, so be prepared for walk. However you could enjoy the journey along the path. A lot of convenient store nearby, mart, and stall food. Bubble Milk Tea shop is the best closer one. Tips: please turn on gps maps while you want to go there. It was in the alley after the road, so you might get lost if you take a wrong turn.

    If they could provide body shower and shampoo would be really appreciated.

    Very central hostel, close to the metro line and Seoul train station.

    Rooms are really small and breakfast is inexistent (just some bread and nothing else).

    The place is small but everything is very efficient. The reception people are friendly. And the location is superb.

    Only one table for all the people to sit down. Toilet could have been cleaner.
