    They provide you with bananas in the morning and a bottle of water when you check in. Location is good, 동대문 is right around the corner.

    I was shocked when I saw the building itself. It’s super old and the pictures provided on have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE REALITY. Everything is old, bed sheets and towels are all stained, mattress is super uncomfortable. The whole building smells of cigarettes even though you can see signs ‘no smoking’ pretty much everywhere. To be honest, you can find rooms with similar conditions in this area for a cheaper price. And for the money they charge you can stay in a better hotel. They trick you with pictures here, so If you choose this hotel, erase the image they have created with pictures they have provided.

    The owner was so kind and helpful when we carry heavy stuff, especially our luggages!! It was also a few steps away from Dongdaemun Station exits 5 and 6, and a few minutes walk from Dongdaemun Design Plaza and Dongdaemun's malls, so getting around was very easy. There are also eggs, sandwiches, wafers and water in their tiny kitchen to keep you full.

    There is no elevator in the building and the stairs are quite steep.

    They have the deck staff 24hr and have to snack and small dinner area to warm some food I buy from the market and make lil party there. The room aren't small like I though. I think it really good for small luggage. If you don't have too much stuff, stay 3~5day and travel around Dongdaemun here is really great the local restuarant near the hotel is really delicious have a small 7-11 mart next alley with the hotel too. But overall I think this place is really good value if you seeking for hotel outside the Myeongdong/Hongdae

    For me its little but to communication with staff in english so it might have some mistake and misunderstanding (ex.check-out time I sent the email and they approved before I went there 3 weeks but in the time the staff tell me to rush and get all the thing out of the room even we didnt finish packing but they still help and let's us keep our luggages and help we to kerry all the bag to the bus sta. That I really appreciated with so I think if you want to request or change anything confirm it with the staff twice for sure~) The room haven't the bidet shower but they already tell the info in the prop. :)

    The hotel owners were so accommodating and they always make sure all the supplies were filled before the day starts and before the day ends. We love their extra effort on everything. More power!
