This was the second 24 Guesthouse I stayed in while I was in Seoul, it was very simple but very conveniently located. Downstairs is a convenience store that I went to often for snacks and drinks. Directly around the guesthouse is a vast array of Korean and Japanese restaurants, cafes and much more. Within a 5 min walk is the main street of Insadong and another 10 min walk down that is Gongbukgang Palace.
I had a single room which was big enough for me to relax in but to some it may seem cramped. There was a bathroom in the room and there was a free breakfast of toast and ramyun 8am-10am on the floor below. Really my only complaint was that outside was a little noisy in the streets at random times up to 4am and the walls are VERY thin so if the people in the other room are moving around or talking you will hear them.
The people at the front desk are very nice and are able to speak enough english to communicate. They will do your laundry and return it to you for a small fee as well.

One of the best part of my recent trip to Korea was Hostel Beige. The room was soooooooooooo comfortable and hotel staff were courteous and kind. I loved the softness of the bed spread. The decors were trendy and not cheap looking.
I thought I was going to get 2 star ( mediocre) rated motel service and comfort level but I felt more comfortable here than any other 5 star hotel.s I stayed before. Its location is near 3 subway stations. 5 minutes to Dongdaemoon market on foot. Best restaurants locals hang out. Yes, the restaurants ( or eating joints) are not fancy but if you go for the taste, they have the best ones here near the hostel. The hotel price is reasonable. The airport limousine bus stop is right across the hostel. There are lots of fun street vendors. However, if you are prince and princesses, this area may not work for you but if you are visiting Korea to experience the local culture and food, this is the place to be.

The room - Double Deluxe Korean Style - easily accommodated 3 adults and 1 child. They had provided us with two futons which were very comfortable. The bathroom was large and toilet was separate for added convenience when there were four of us. The closet was large, fridge was large enough to store a few bottles of water and juice, a kettle was provided as well as coffee and tea bags. We liked that they served breakfast - which was delicious and filling - so that we just came down and came back up after eating to get ready for the day. There is free laundry in the basement - laundry soap provided as well.
All in all we enjoyed our stay at Sunbee Hotel amd would stay at this hotel again.

The location is the best part although I heard from room mates that it's a bit hard to find at first as the entrance is on a road that looks more like an alley. I arranged the airport pick up for a fee and was met by the owner, who reliably waited as my plane was late and customs took a while. You can take the airport bus or use the metro. Both have stops that are quite close to this hostel.
At check in your bags are carried to your room, which is nice if you are on the higher floors.
I found the staff to be friendly and willing to please but they have difficulty with English so we had some communication short circuits. I stayed almost 2 weeks purely due to the great location. For help with sightseeing there several tourist information booths in the vicinity and I got lots of help there with along with booklets, maps and so on. This was much easier, and a better source of information, than asking the staff. Also, the main tourism office is roughly a 10 minute walk away (keep walking past the post office) and offers free 3 minute phone calls, internet and more. The entrance is below street level. There are lots of banks nearby also.
Another good thing is the free use of a washing machine. Clothes spin dry quite well. Finding places to put your clothes out to dry is another matter, but still, its nice added value. I also appreciated the hot and cold water dispensing machine available for guests. I refilled my water bottle from this frequently and had no tummy troubles

Main issue was that my room was not ready when I arrived at1600hrs. I was asked to wait for 1 hour whilst the room was cleaned. I sent an email of complaint to the manager but have received no response. Considering check in is from 1400hrs this is very poor.
Otherwise the hotel was pleasant and comfortable although the rooms are very plain.
It's main attraction is that is in a nice area 'Insadong' convenient for the metro 200m and is central to the Palace district for sight seeing.
On balance I would use this hotel again.

"Great hotel! Great location in the center of Seoul"
We loved the GS Hotel! We were picking up our son after he served a 2 year LDS mission in the Korea Seoul Mission. The hotel was right in the center of Seoul and close to many things we wanted to see. It's also close to the subway system. We originally booked a few night in the GS Hotel, but ended up staying there nearly the whole week. It was well worth the extra few dollars to get the breakfast. The room was clean. The hotel staff was extremely professional, friendly, and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Seoul area.

We are a family of 5 and we booked the apartment style room which has 2 bedrooms. The space was comfortable and large enough for us. The hotel location was excellent as it was in a quiet area, steps away from 24 hr convenience store, walking distance to 2 palaces, bank, Isadong market and subway stations. The hotel staff, Kevin and Daekwon were friendly and super helpful as they provided valuable info such as which subway to take, that airport bus would be better than subway etc. We also appreciated the convenience of the complimentary breakfast of toast, eggs, meat,cereal, juice and coffee. Thanks Stay in Gam for making our vacation in Seoul so enjoyable.

Room very small for 2 people with medium size luggages. Quite clean. Bathroom smelled, they only left a refreshing spray bottle . AC was shut down at night, we had to open the window which got a lot of noise from outside even at the 10th floor.
Room smelled cigarettes even it was a non-smoking room.
Room quite old.
