Right outside of Euljiro 3(sam)-ga EXIT 7, and next to a Police Station, it was easy to get anywhere and feel safe at night.
Very clean and comfortable. It has a communal kitchen where everything is available to those who stay there, for free. Kimchi, rice, noodles, instant ramyun, coffee, everything. If you get a room with your own bathroom, that's awesome - and if you get the rooms without, it's still pretty good because the bathrooms are clean and very centrally located.
Washers and dryers are available too. Free-use.
If that's not enough, there's a convenience store just across the road from the hostel.
The owners and staff were friendly, though only a couple would be able to speak English. They speak in Mandarin, Korean, Japanese and English. They helped with making phone calls, to arranging taxi pick-ups.
It was also very very affordable - I even got a discount for staying a whole month.
The only down side was that the rooms and beds were small - if you're a normal sized girl, that's all great, but if you're a big-sized person, you may need some time to adjust and get used to the room.
