Budget traveller's best friend

If you are not afraid of a bit of shabbiness and want to spend your money on something more fun than lodgings, this is your hostel! The location near Seoul station is convenient, and the closest subway station is just a minute's walk away. For those days when you don't feel like going too far for dinner or coffee, the Sookmyung Women's University area offers a bunch of small coffee shops and restaurants. I stayed in a single room that was very affordable and even had a private toilet/shower. The room was definitely not fancy, but considering the price very decent. The only thing missing in the room was a fridge, but I consider that a minor flaw. The biggest plus was the super helpful and nice staff who would provide you with any kind of advice and info. When I visit Seoul for the next time, I will definitely stay here!
