I traveled v my friends together and we stayed at chingu hostel. Chingu people are very friendly and helpful. I feel like they are friends more than like staff. Bed conditions is good and hostel always keep clean. Don't make yourself be alone, try make friends with chingu people and get fun ^^

Chingu guesthouse is great. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The facilities are nice with good WiFi, TV, and good showers. But the best thing is all the great people that are staying there including the staff. If I come back to Seoul I will definitely stay there again.

Let's just start by saying that Kim's Guesthouse really feels like your second home and not just another hostel. The vibe around the staff and guests are really relaxed, funny and respectful. Everything is being cleaned daily and the location is great for both food and nightlife. Everything else is accessible by metro about a 5 min walk away.

Good stay, was upgraded to a 4 person dorm when paid for the 8 person room. Lots of long term guests that were friendly. Tidy and welcoming. Near a subway station and a popular young persons area with lots of shops and restaurants. Coldest AC in Seoul I would say.

The ac is gold here and the staff is nice. Great location and close to the convenience store. Not far from the subway station, roughly 5 minutes walk. Nice neighbourhood and a pretty quiet place despite being so in the hotspot.

First up, this is a great hostel. It's comfortable, clean, has A/C, good wifi, plenty of computers, laundry facilities, and has everything you need. It's also great value for money. But what makes this place special is the staff. The guys here went above and beyond to help us out when our band was staying there on our tour of...
