Near dongdaemun shopping area ,near subway , in the food street
Good location, close to the subway and to the airport bus, uncomplicated stay
Small room, basic breakfast, during the night rather noisy from the restaurants and Karaoke Bars
towel is too small
We stayed here twice over one long period of stay in South Korea. First time, we got room on the 5th floor, and the 2nd time on the 3rd floor. 5th floor room has better ventilation, but 3rd floor room is a lot more convenient if you have heavy luggage because there's no elevator in the building. There's also water filter in every floor if you're thirsty and the scale to weigh your luggage. The hostel provides towels, toiletries, and so on. You can also use their washing machines to do your laundry. Also, the hostel has a perfect location. If most of the places you want to visit are in North Seoul, they're basically 15-20 min away from DDP. There's also a bus that goes straight to Itaewon. Overall, it's a great place to stay considering the price and the location.
The owners have a cute dog, and there's a distinct smell of dog pee in the 2nd floor where the reception is. I do realize it's problematic in the middle of Seoul, but please walk the dog.
Considering the location of the accommodation, it is very cheap. There is a subway station with three subway lines nearby, and the airport bus stops rather close, too. Also, you can use their washing machines with no additional fee.
There is no elevator, so if you're at the top floor, it's a bit inconvenient. Although there are signs everywhere that say the staff will help you with your luggage if you ask.
With a stay at Philstay Dongdaemun in Seoul (Jung-gu), you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Dongdaemun Design Plaza and Dongdaemun History & Culture Park. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, a computer station, and luggage storage.
