    This hostel is located near Dongmyo bus stop and 2 subway stations (Dongmyo and Sinseoldong). They have everything we need, from hot and cold water, towels, bathroom stuff, kitchen utensils, hair blower, flat iron, even laundry machines. They also serve simple breakfast, coffee, tea, toast and cereals. I really commend the host and staff for being so kind to us, almost every day we encounter problems and they really help us. Thank you so much Mr. James, for being so kind. Jeongmal kamsahamnida!!

    Near bus stop to catch airport limousine early in morning.

    Breakfast service not many choices compare to our last year stay. We came back here for that service but really dissapointed this time. Washer machine and dryer time 9.30am-11.30pm which is very limited time for us. There's one night we used it and before 11.30pm the machine stop working and our clothes still soaking with water. We need to wait until tomorrow morning to settle it. Because the machine will start on 9.30am, we need to cancel all of our itinerary during that day.
