Simply the way in which they handled my booking a room for two nights via booking.com makes me angry. It clearly stated that I'd pay cash when checking in, and no credit card booking was required. Then I received an e-mail asking to confirm my booking, and asking for my credit card number. I did not feel comfortable sending that...

In the beginning, it's not easy to find the hotel as there is no door by the street. Finally, we got it with help of many students. Many many girls are around there because Sookmyung Women's University is close by... hahaha The room is small but clean, and rate is not expensive. The room service is very good, thank you!...

The room I've stayed was cozy and...

First of all, we followed the stated address (5 minutes walk away from the subway station, Sookmyung Women's University), however we only knew that our room needed another 10 minutes walk up to the hill after check in!!! It is very inconvenient for people who are carrying...

Thought I would give a long review of this place, with the intention of making it a better, improved place for travellers like us. We stayed at U&I Hostel in Sep/Oct when we visited Seoul. The hostel was located on the 3rd floor, which means there are two flights of stairs to navigate before reaching the hostel main door. If...
