This is a Trusted Review. Why?

If you are backpacking alone, this place is good because the hostel in-charge, Yong, is extremely friendly and helpful. If you are a k-pop fanatic, just let him know and he will be more than happy to assist you in checking for latest free concerts (and how to get there), the venues of the three big entertainment buildings (SM, JYP, YG), etc.. At night after a good shower, you may hang out in the common room to watch tv or have a chat with the other backpackers and Yong.. it was a good stay, wished i could have stayed longer there =)

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This was just the friendliest, most clean and wonderful hostel during my 5-months of travelling around the world. Though it's not in the most central part of Seoul it's located near a lively area in Hyehwa with so many nice restaurants and bars. The owner Yong is really dedicated to making this a great place to stay and taking care of his customers. I would definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Seoul! Sini, Finland

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

When I arrived at Korea Central Backpackers, I intended to stay a night or two until I could find a better place to stay. I found the experience so enjoyable however, that I spent the entirety of my stay in Seoul there.

KCB has a warm and relaxing atmosphere to it, the host speaks fluent English and was very helpful in every way from traveling to getting the bare basics. As a guest you are given 100% freedom of coming and going as you please, there were no strict check in or checkout times. The facilities were new and clean with access to a lounge area, computers and a TV, bathrooms and showers.

In addition to being a great place to stay, the price is very affordable and the location truly is very central in Seoul. I think one would be hard pressed to find a better place to stay, even when comparing to high priced hotels.

5/5, highly recommended!
