At first, I was a disappointed at the dorm type room I was staying. There was little to no room for moving around the room especially with all the luggage since the time I checked-in the dorm rooms were full.
I tried to not think dwell to much about it and reasoned out that I’ll be staying out most of the time to explore the city and that’s the greatest thing about this guesthouse! It is one block away from exit 9&10 of Myeongdong Station. So if you need to travel thru subway, which you will most of the time, it is very efficient! Also near the bus stations and airport limousine stopover (got to Incheon T1 after 1 hr from Myeongdong).
You would think that it is very noisy and crowded since the area is literally IN Myeongdong, one of the most touristy area in Seoul, but the location of the hostel is just around the corner where the music is not much heard and not much people or sellers walking around which is good.
It is also a few bus stops away from Namsan Tower, Gyeongbukgong Palace and Dongdaemun area.
Shopping would be best in the afternoon in Myeongdong since it gets too crowded in the evening. And try the restaurants around the guesthouse as it’s not as crowded as that of the restaurants inside the area.
Overall, if you’re not claustrophobic and don’t mind sharing your space to a lot of people. This is good enough for the price range.
Also it doesn’t hurt that their laundry service is free, although no dryer but at least you can wash your clothes if your staying longer.
