This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Staff were great and other travellers were easy to get along with! The place is in a great university location so there are lots of restaurants, cafes, bars and theatres.
It is a proper back-packers hostel, no frills and just what you expect for 20,000 per person for the night... And that was a holiday weekend!!!
Perfect for keeping it under budget!!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The location is really an advantage. It is very near to the Sungkyunkwan university so breakfast are always cheap around the area. It is very near to the bus stop and Hyehwa subway station so traveling was never a problem.

The lady owner is very helpful and willing to go out of her way to even show us stuffs and how to get around. You can get towels, extension cords, and whatnot from her. I missed my flight and had to change my dates of reservation during heavy travel season and there was no problem given from their side. Really nice people.

The rooms might be a little too small if you're a luxurious traveller. But if you're a student and just needed a place to sleep and keep your stuffs at night, it's really more than enough.

You might want to get a private room though. My sister and i got a private bunk so we had the room to ourselves. But there was 2 bunk beds outside the room and i pity the fellas sleeping there.

Feel free to ask about anything else.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Besides the decent location and friendly staff, we were very disappointed by the Windflower Hostel. I would have gladly paid a bit more for a better place. Another guest had left soiled underwear in the bathroom and there was no toilet paper at all, nor were there towels or a real shower that didn't get the whole bathroom wet. They also advertised free b-fast but it wasn't available anymore. Our "private" room didn't feel private at all - it was separated by only a very thin wall and a door with gaps around the sides whose lock could easily be broken through. The bed was in bad shape, too. Overall, I'd recommend looking elsewhere unless you're desperate!
