Room and Location
The location is very ideal. The place is next to hongdae and sinchon; very great stations and neighborhoods to be in. No complaint about this.
The facilities were dirty. Hair is all over the room and there are a lot of bugs (possibly bed bugs). Also, there is only one bathroom for about 15 people, which is very inconvenient. Be prepared to bring your own toiletries if you stay here. You will probably not sleep well, because other people leave and come as they go, and of course make tons of noise. The walls are thin so if people talk in the lounge area everything can be heard.... Moreover, seems like the host is almost never around for check-in, so if you get lost, don't count on them. Just putting that out there. I wish that they do not post the photos of the location #1 and confuse it with location #2. Location #2 does not have pretty facilities. There should be a disclaimer.
There's no breakfast included nor cooking facility as well, but a kettle handy for hot water. However the area is loaded with all dining options really has no need to eat in. Super handy location!! When exit subway station at exit 8; turn to your right immediately then you will find your way to the hostel. Also the building has numbers of different accommodation operators within; to make sure you are in the right place walk straight thru the gate, is located sort of ground / lower ground level.
There's only one bathroom between all accupainces; most of time there's no one minding the place which is fine if all travellers have decency being considered of others. It will be really handy to have a separate basin and mirror such for just hand washing tooth brushing make ups in the common area ; given the options to divide traffic of occupying the bathroom.
I love the location.
The host is friendly and the people there at that time are friendly too
A bit difficult to get to from the train station
