“Very Nice place with good staff”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

A Very nice guest house, clean and with good beds. Thanks to the staff who is kind, very helpfull and speak a good english. Lot of restaurants, bars, shops ans convenience stores around the guest house. We had a really good time and I strongly recommand that place for all people who want to enjoy nightlife in Seoul.

Stayed August 2013, travelled with friends
Thank Jérémy B

Fisst of all, be aware there there are 2 forune hostels in seoul, the other being the fortune downtown. i was nearly fooled by this. we booked a family room which was described as having it's own bathroom in bookings.com site and it didn't. I was a bit peeved and gave out a little. however, the place was only open a week or so and we seemed to have the place to ourselves. it did not have the facilities of some hostels such as abr and food etc. but the staff could not have been more helpful. the beds were lovely. the bunks seemed wider that the normal. the place is in a really vibrant area and the streets are jammed at the weekend with young people. great atmosphere and loads of restaurants and Bars. Be careful as well of directions on booking.com site. they are too vague. good map on Agoda site. my son is now living in daegu and says that he will return with his mates to this hostel so he was impressed. again, the staff were the big plus in this place.
