At $35-$45 a night, this is a budget stay. Rooms are a little smaller than a college dorm room, but they are clean and comfortable, with wifi, television, and a private bathroom that includes a tub, not just a shower. It's within walking distance of Nakwon and Insadong and a short subway ride from the rest of the city. The staff was friendly and tried hard to communicate. Beds were doubles and somewhat hard--typical for Korea. Pillows and blankets were also standard for Korean budget hotels. Overall, the room was a clean and comfortable place to come back to at the end of a long day, gave us both a good night's sleep, was convenient to exploring Seoul, and was not at all expensive: exactly what we were looking for. We'll use them again if we're looking to overnight in the city.

We really enjoyed our stay in this hostel. The staffs are all helpful and courteous. Simple breakfast are being served everyday (bread, cereals, banana, coffee etc.). The room is clean and neat. We love the modern look of the bathroom. The lobby and pantry have a very welcoming ambience. We also love the location since it's very near to tourists spots and 2 subway stations (Jongno 3 and Angkuk) and the airport bus station (6011). We love the experience here and we'll definitely stay again in the future! :)

The hotel is easy to find by using the 6002 bus from the airport and getting off at the YMCA stop then 5 mins walk up Insadong. The staff were excellent and the room clean and roomy. We found it easy to walk to the palaces, along the river and to visit the Rodin museum. Also Insadong is very lively with plenty of restaurants, bars and the Alive museum.

Enjoyed our stay here. Was much cleaner and newer than other hotels we stayed in. It was simple in the room, but clean and modern looking. Enjoyed the tub. Very close to the center of Seoul and to Insadong, where it was fun to walk around and shop.

"Small & simple hotel with high quality-price ratio"
Very close to the most touristic places of Seoul, nice decoration, as new condition, very good quality bed, all what is necessary for those who just look for a room is there. The room includes computer, TV and mini-bar with a few soft drinks included in the price. Simple continental breakfast but good quality. This is not a business hotel: the rooms are small and there are no dining room, lounges, saloons or similar.

Don't know what previous reviewers were complaining about - if the comforters were too hot they could have turned up the AC to make the room colder :) close to Insadong and subway; clean comfortable rooms. Problem with AC was fixed within minutes.

Great traditional place to stay, rooms arnt huge but are clean and are pleasent to be in. The staff are really helpful and are just nice people as well.
Also in a great location, 5 min walk from the Subway, right by Changdeokgong Palace, 10 mins from Insadong.
Be warned this is a traditional Hanok so theres shared bathrooms and you will be sleeping on futons on the floor. But if you're looking for a traditional Korean experience this is the place to go!
