Reviewed 10 February 2014

i have been to seoul for three time
here is my first choice in seoul.
reasons just like the following,
1. cheap
2. convenient.
only 5 mins to subway
3. good service
4. wifi available
they provide computer in the room as well.
you also can use wifi in the hostel,
even can rent wifi-egg to use outside (there is a promotion for no rental fee!)

by the way, the food in sinchon station is too nice!

Room Tip: there is no elevator, but its fine, the staff would help you to move the luggage, no high floor

Good location to metro.
Staff there are nice and hospitality. Fluent in Korean, English and Chinese.
It's really relaxing to go to the kitchen and have a cup of tea or coffee.
Recommend this hostel to people plan to visit Seoul.

And the location is so nice that you can eat whenever you want, also it has kitchen. Near the subway.

My family and I stayed in BK for 4 nights, the staff were very helpful and friendly, they provide good services and introduce in details. Thus, you can stay in BK as your home. Before arriving Seoul, the staff answer my questions quickly through email.
For accommodation, the rooms are clean and feel so warm when staying in room (as I go to Seoul in winter). Besides, BK provides the daily commodities to the guests so you do not need to bring many stuff to there. :p
The location is very well,it's very near Sinchon station and you go to Hongdae and Ewa Uni by foot. Besides, you can find many famous restaurants near BK.
I will choose to stay in BK when I go travel to Seoul again.

I have stayed here twice during my trip to Seoul in 2012 and 2013. Location is good with good foods around and near to departmental stores, rate is reasonable and the staffs there are helpful. Was pretty amazed by one of the staff Eric who can still remember who I am when I return to Korea in 2013. Will definitely stay here again the next time.
