“Awesome place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

My 7 nights in Suitcasers with my family is awesome. Room is tidy and clean with a kitchen that operates well. (I can also cook there!) Staffs are very helpful and always cater to our request and questions! Will definitely go back to Suitcasers again when I am back to Seoul.

Travelled with my boyfriend and 2 other friends from 10 January - 19 January 2014.

The staff are very friendly, willing to go the extra mile to help us with all of our requests from reservation phase till our departure.

It might be a little hard to locate Suitcasers when we just arrived but with the map that they have provided, everything is really easy! The location of Suitcasers might be a little dangerous if you are a solo female traveller and is thinking of staying out late as there are a couple of drinking places nearby. But do not need to worry about the security of Suitcasers as you need to enter a pin in order to get in. We feel totally safe throughout our stay!

If you are travelling light and intend to do some laundry over your course of stay, they have 2 washing machine at the top floor (which is also the place for breakfast) which you can use on a first come first serve basis. And if you require dry cleaning services, they can do so at a cost.

Breakfast everyday is simple with bread, jams, cereal and milk. It is sufficient for travellers who are on a tight budget.

There's a 24hrs convenient store (GS25) nearby if you need to get any necessities, food and etc. There's also a microwave and a stove on the top floor if you need to cook or heat up your purchases from the convenient stores or those awesome food that you have gotten from Lotte Mart that is located nearby at MyeongDong.

There are restaurants, pubs and roadside stalls along the road that leads to Suitcasers and they open till around 5am so, no need to worry about meals at all if you need some supper in the middle of the night!

Suitcasers is a 5 minute walk away from Cityhall Station, 10 minute walk away from Namdaemun and around 15 minute walk away from MyeongDong shopping area.

The rooms are clean and spacious but the bed were a little stiff. There are toiletries provided in the room (body wash, shampoo, conditioner, facial wash and toothpaste). If you need toothbrush, you can get them from their counter.

Our stay was perfect! Special thanks to Sam and his awesome team for everything! :)

we stayed for 2 nights here. suitcasers is near from anything, GS25, subway, street full of food, just few minutes by subway or taxi you can reached many of Seoul attraction. The staff are very welcome and very helpful. They give me a very detail information about everything that we asked. The room and bathroom is clean. Breakfast is enough for us. We recommend for any traveler to stay here!

It was my first time to Seoul and staying in Suitcaser was the best decision of the trip!

Despite arriving at 12.30am beyond their counter usual operating hours, we were welcomed and given a slow detail explanations of the do & don't during our stay and how they can help to make our stay more enjoyable and comfortable. Very personal touch rather than those usual hotel style where they just gave you the room key and wish you goodnight.
Another nice thought that they will give you little notes in Korean wording which will help taxi drivers find the direction to Suitcaser. This proved to be life saver when we finding our way back from War Memorial and Dongdaemong.

We stayed for a total 7 nights with double & triple rooms on level 2 and 3. First impression that the rooms are smaller than we like, maybe cos we have 2 large luggage. No space to leave it open. On the other hand, we love the spacious bathroom. 2-3 people can fit in easily, important for us as we have young kids. We got to praise their effort on the cleanliness of the hostel.

Communication is never an issue at Suitcaser, Sam, one of the boss, who speaks good English while 2 real friendly & helpful female staffs, from Hongkong and Taiwan, are able to helped us with whatever questions we threw at them in Chinese and Cantonese. Sam also helped us with food delivery and airport transfer. On night of departure, Cherry (i hope i get the name right) helped us with luggage and kids onto the Taxi despite it's freezing cold outside.

Location of Suitcaser needs no further endorsement. It's located in the centre of several attractions (City MRT, Meyongdong, Namdaemong, Lotte Mark, Nasam Park, GS25 store etc). All within 3-15 mins walking... Yes, i did WALKED to Nasam Park from Suitcaser haha...

Big big kudos to Suitcaser! We will be back...

P.S: Yes, my wife and I agrees with other reviewers, Sam is very handsome & the nicest Korean we met in Seoul. LOL...

Room Tip: If you like quiet room with least human traffic, go for level 3. If you like being close to kitchen...

Suitcasers located in a very convenient location as it is surrounded by few famous attractions such as Myeongdong, Namdaemun Market and N Seoul Tower. We stayed there for few nights and all of us were enjoyed the stays. Food can be easily accessed and a convenient shop GS25 is just around the corner. The rooms may seen small but its cleanliness earned more points. The good looking boss and staff were helpful and nice. Glad to know them! Thanks, Cherry (the pretty) and Sam (the handsome)!! =) Hope that we didn't give u all any trouble during our stays in Suitcasers.

(p.s. We are the 8ppl in a group from Malaysia. Hope you still remember us.)

We stayed at Suitcasers for a few nights. We enjoyed the stay and liked the location, room cleanliness, great eateries nearby and especially the helpful staff. The breakfast is simple yet sufficient for us. Everything is great except for the tough bed we had throughout the stay. Will recommend to anyone who need a comfortable room and helpful staff.

Me and my mother stayed at Suitcasers for 3 nights during our 7 days in Seoul. But to due impressive reviews in tripadvisor, this guesthouse is always fully booked. It is in a very convenient location and very easy to find even though we were on a DIY tour. What I loved most about this guesthouse is that it has an elevator which was my primary concern when travelling with my mother. Staffs are friendly, rooms are clean and free breakfast is included in their rates so what else can I say? Suitcasers is almost perfect!
