My friend and I stayed here in June 2014 after she had stayed there previously. I can't decide to give this place a 3 or a 4... It was my first hostel experience and after hearing horror stories from others, I was pleasantly surprised that I had such a pleasant stay here. Accommodations: We stayed in a double room that...

Staff is very Friendly. Always willing to help. Beds very comfortable. Rooms have more than one (single) bed and have lockers where you could lock away your valuables during the day/night. Showers, bathroom, toilets always neat and clean. They also have a kitchen where you can help yourself to what is there. This is definitely also a nice place to...

This hostel was perfect for me. I spent around 10 days here in total and it was the ideal mix of chilled and social. It is a very small and personal hostel so you get to know the guests really well. I got to know so many people and that ended up changing the course of my stay! It's a...

Don't expect too much. It's a cheap hostel with a good location. Room was small and extremely stuffy with no air-circulation or window. Had to walk through a communal bedroom to get to our "private" room. This place would be unbearably in the heat of summer. I was breaking a sweat falling asleep on a mild May night. Comfort here...

I liked this hostel. The location was right in the middle of Itaewon and just a 5 minute walk from the next metro station. The price was affordable, staff was super friendly and helpful, it was clean and breakfast was included, which was good. It was just toast with jam as well as Korean tea and coffee, but it was...

Staying in Itaewon

Neighbourhood Profile
Itaewon
Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison, Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here, trendy international restaurants dot the area alongside hip lounge bars and some of Seoul’s hottest club venues. After dark, Itaewon comes into its own as one of Seoul’s top party scenes. The crowd is a fascinating patchwork of all backgrounds and identities, including a small but thriving Muslim community (centered on Korea’s sole mosque), the LGBT community (with a string of popular bars and clubs), and a wide range of ethnicities and cultures scattered around. Those seeking a quiet respite should head towards the eastern end, in Hannam-dong, which not only has one of Korea’s best art museums, the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, but plenty of mid-range to upscale restaurants and cafes.
