    I like the location of this hostel. It's very near the place that I go to participate in my TOEFL ibt exam. It located in the center of Seoul so you can easily get the subway and go anywhere.

    I do not like the smell in the room. It's not quite comfortable for me. I think the hostel should deodorize the room before the guest check-in.

    Perfect place and price for such quality of hot water in the shower and only toast with jam and cofee as a breakfast.

    Breakfast and water temperature. I was realy waiting more than 10 min, but it was still cold.

    Location was good and staff were friendly. The room was nice and warm for winter. Not the cleanest or most comfortable but for one night it was fine.

    I have spent one night and it was early november. The room was sufficiently warm. That's the only thing I liked.

    #1 The toilet was poorly equipped. The hot water shower wasn’t working well. #2 The breakfast was literally poorest I have ever seen. The dining space was too narrow and no more than 4 people can sit there. Even l, the table was dirty. Can You believe to see a used shaving razor on your dining table? #3 There was no staff on the desk. Even at morning 9am. So I cant ask anything I want during my stay. #4 Now, their position. This hostel is at very bad position where the online taxi service can't get into. #5 Though it costs around 30 USD, I have found other places in korea offering better service than this hotel with less amount than this.

    The location is near to the Gongdeok Station which has many interchange lines, easy to go to ICN airport, no need to change the line. Naru house is near the convenience store (eg: GS25, CU) and there is supermarket not far from the guesthouse (note: just walk and explore the area). Theres an Octopus Restaurant near the guesthouse which a Muslim like me can try. Several coffeeshop across the road. Staff is so good, helping me to find my lost purse during my stay, and luckily I found it. Staff also willing to help us to order delivery food, so nice and kind. I stay 1 week on early spring (April 2019) and late autumn (Oct 2019) which was a bit chilly at night, and the heater (room heater and hot shower) working nicely and Im satisfied. The breakfast is okay, they provide cereals, 우유, 빵, yogurts which you can always eat them as many as you want.
