It's my first time to travel by myself in Seoul and I was really excited and at the same time kinda nervous because I am not used travelling alone. This hostel made my stay more comfortable. The facilities are complete and the Line 2 and 9 for train stations are just few steps away. Indeed, a good value for money! And all their staff are really approachable and friendly especially to one female staff who even made her way to have some little talk with me and asked me about my fave areas in Seoul, and etc. Surely, I will book this place again for my South Korea trip again 😉
