The best thing about this hotel is the central location: it is near everything you need. Also, getting a cab when you need it is extremely easy. It probably never took more than two minutes for us to get a cab every time we needed one. You get what you pay for - modular toilet that is like slapped in the room, room is simple. The hotel is clean and everyone is nice and helpful.
Just a word of caution with the language barrier - as much as the people at the ground floor are friendly and nice, make sure you get your message across loud and clear because I was sent on a wild goose chase once with wrong directions - they apparently didn't understand where I wanted to go and I lost a lot of time on my last few hours in Seoul because of this. They gave good recommendations though where to eat good authentic food in the area.
Downside is that we had to wait quite awhile for our room since we arrived early in the morning. TIP: go to the main lobby on the higher floor, not the ground floor in the morning to freshen up as the restroom is very clean there vs the ground floor restroom which is communal and not very clean. Or try to see if you can use the spa facility.
Other than that, travelling on a budget this is a good place to stay.
