      Very informative and helpfull staff. Very clean in general.. Not to easy to get to, but once you call from the subway station, a staff member will come and fetch you!

      The staff was very personable and helpful. They often go out of their way to accommodate you and help you with anything you need. Its a nice place to socialize or crash after your night out.

      Then bathrooms did not have much ventilation.

      The staff are very nice! Although it was fully booked, we could sleep in a dorm, even if we were just two people. Lots of restaurants and bars in the area!

      Even though Kimchi Hongdae Hostel was unbelievably cheap, the staff were so friendly, multi-lingual, and informative.

      I think the staff at the Kimchi Hostel is really helpful and friendly. The beds are clean, and usually the guests are considerate about noise at night. The location is also great for me, because I like going to Club Evans, which is close by.

      I don't like it when guests are noisy in the middle of the night, but that's not anything the staff can help.

      Our stay was great. Staff was very nice. Bed was firm yet comfy. Location is very good. That said I highly recommend watching the video tutorial that is provided when you book. It is not far off the well beaten path but tucked away none the less. I will be back for my next Hongdae weekend!
