Good for big group staying. Location-wise is uphills. Located near Chungmuro Station. About 5 mins walk to the metro station. Great for backpackers and easy on the wallet. Several type of room rental you can choose. Kitchenette on the top floor. This place offers rooftop area to chill and relax.

Although the youth hostel in quite comfortable, the place is huge, sometimes very noisy (used mostly by big school groups) and absolutely not cosy. The ensuite bathrooms are very small but clean. The shared bathrooms are more spacious (showers separated by a glass panel only). The roof terrace is very nice. Located 15 min. walk from the subway station, on...

Cons: - It's a little bit out of the way and some taxi drivers may not know where it is even after keying in the address in the GPS. It can't be seen from the main road either. But. Chungmuro and Myeongdong Subway Stations are quite near to the hostel (10 to 15 minutes' power walk down the hill). -...

Among the youth hostels I've stayed in this has been among the best (I've stayed in youth hostels in the US, Canada, Portugal), certainly in terms of price and location. I'm paying about $15 a night for a 10-person dorm room and while it's off peak there's only about 4 others in the room. The rooms are cleaned every day,...

Staying in Namsan

Neighbourhood Profile
Namsan
Situated in the center of Seoul, Namsan is Seoul’s most well-known hill for having the iconic N Seoul Tower perched on top of it. It’s not just the picturesque views from Namsan Park that make it a top draw, but N Seoul Tower’s status as a site for lovers from around the world who come on a daily basis to place a lock on the tower’s fence, professing their love to the external world. Nature lovers will be rewarded should they take the time to walk through the often overlooked Namsan Park with its trails of beautiful scenery that change seasonally, excellent views of Seoul, and attractions such as Namsangol Hanok Village.
