        Lee is very friendly. The other guests are very friendly too. The place is clean and well kept. Lee instruction to the hsotel is very accurate and good., make it very easy to find the hostel

        Breakfast starting at 8 am is a bit too late. Should be 7am. There is no table to sit to have breakfast. The shower should be separated male from female. There is no hooks in the shower cubicle to hang your towel or clothings.

        Mr. Lee, is really helping person, whenever asked for. the place is peaceful, people who stayed with me were very nice and respectful to each other. There were lot of things in bathroom, so no need to carry your own, It seems that Mr. Lee care for his guest very much personally. His nature is always helping to the people, and respect a lot to females guest. I love his attitude. when I plan again to visit korea, I will stay again to his place. Hope He maintain the same way in future.

        Its a small house, with no balcony, but its ok.

        Mr. Lee is super nice. Though the location seems far from the metro station on map, it is actually a short walk. Quick Wifi.

        It would be the best if the toilet can be cleaner.

        We researched a lot of places for staying in Seoul. This hostel places in a great area, very close for the subway station. Mr. Lee's hostel gives safety feeling. We leave our stuff in different places, nobody took it, same with food. We were staying for almost 2 weeks, so become friends with everyone who is staying where. No problem with Internet access, friendly atmosphere, clean hostel and low price for all of that. Sounds great! Especially, I would like to thank a lot Mr. Lee who provided us information about sightseeing and helped us a lot with everything. Mr. Lee, FIGHTING!)))

        I like the cute design of the hostel and also the good smell of the room. It's clean and comfortable. I don't really know about the bed because i only used it for 1 hour. The owner is also very friendly. He let me in when he was asleep (it was 4am!!)

        Actually i had to get a breakfast for the service as i paid. But i left the hostel so early (6.15am) and the breakfast time starts at 8am. So i couldn't try what kind of breakfast did they serve and i had to buy my own breakfast. I tried to go to the kitchen but it was locked even if i had told him the night before.
