          1)Is this 'hostel' accommodation different from a room in a budget hotel? (in terms of privacy & facilities). 2) Is the hostel suitable for a couple on a shopping trip in Seoul?(convenient access to Dongdaemun market, Itaewon, Myeondong) 3) How does Yellow Brick Guesthouse differ from Yellow Brick 2 Hostel? 4) check-in & check-out time, hot-water & tea/coffee making facilities, lift/elevator to upper floors? 5) contact e-mails for enquiries?
