Bed so fluffy I rest well
Refrigerator, I’m upset that I didn’t use it
-Hotel location strategic and subway station is within walking distance (SinSeldong Station) - a lot of restaurants and convenience store nearby hotel - value for money if u compare with other hotel in Seoul - Hotel staff is friendly and attentive to ur questions, they willing to help for food delivery during our stay. - toiletries and towels are available
- no escalator, and a bit harder for those families with kids - hotel is hidden inside a small alley so some take more time to find it
Friendly staff, comfortable room, nice location and reasonable price. Highly recommended.
The single room to just myself for that price was a bargain along with the privacy. The breakfast isnt more than a 'mehw', but at least it's something. The staff was friendly. The location ok
Cleanliness is definitely an issue here. My sheets looked like they were unwashed, I found several strands of long black hair, which surely wasnt mine, plus there was some sort of glitter and what looked like a painted finger nail on the sheet. The kitchen was equally dirty as was the room, you best walk in and out in the same stride. I didnt fancy the bathrooms much either.
The breakfast was modest. There is coffee, tea, bread, butter, jams and they also have rice and a dish. The kitchen space was small so we need to take a turn but that is not a problem. You can use the kitchen to cook your food but make sure to clean after that. The hostel is near the Sinseoldong Subway station and there is also a bus stop which includes an airport shuttle bus. The bus for the airport is no. 6002 and it cost 10,000 won. You need to turn right at the junction when you come from the hostel to go to the bus stop. There were plenty of convenient stores, a pharmacy, grocery shops, a fruit stall, cafes, and restaurants nearby. The walk from the station to the hostel is safe as the road is busy although once you are nearer to the hostel, it's a bit dim there is a surveillance camera and it is not deserted.
