My friends and I stayed here for a night before our other accommodation was ready. From the airport, it is rather convenient. Just take limo bus 6002 at gate 5b for 10k won, stop at dongmyeon station, and walk for less than five minutes. with that said, location wise isn't fantastic as there isn't much food nearby. While kwangjang market...

For someone in a tight budget, this hostel is a great place to stay. It's got the amenities that you need and it actually feels a bit like home. There's a place where you can hang out with friends and the rooms was actually comfy. More importantly, it's located near the train station. LOL.

“If you have some leeway regarding your budget for accommodation, get the ensuites. The place may be nice but I would not be able to guarantee all of the guests would be too. You will have your privacy and be much more secure.”
