From $26

There are several reasons you need to stay in the closest hostel. :-)

1. The only hostel and guesthouse you can see from the Hongik Univ. station.

( We hope you don't waste your time in the street with your big bag. Seoul's summer is really hot and humid. )

2. 24hours air-conditioning. ( Owner doesn't care about the earth but guests. )

3. Flexible check-out depending on the reservation for rooms.

4. A Good owner who do this business for fun. (Also a professional backpacker who have visited 50 countries and more than 150hostels in the world.)

5. The closest hostel like the name

(Only 1min. (120meter / 400feet) away from the exit3 of Hongik Univ. station. - Exit3 is the closest exit you can reach airport express and line no2 in the same time. Stations are quite big in Seoul.)

6. We use good amenities for you.

7. Tour Service such as the cheapest DMZ tour.

8. Perfect travel plan for Seoul and Korea.

9. The Owner Rick has a certificate to teach Korean. (If you are going to stay in Seoul for studying Korean, Rick is willing to help you without surcharge.)

We will give you the perfect service no matter what the price is. We decided to be in this industry, because we love people, especially travelers.

Lee will help you get everything you need in Korea. :-)

Hostel has 9rooms in 2 buildings but 1 reception.

1st building has 4rooms(reception building.)

- We didn't open the whole availability in the hostelworld.

However, we will let you know when you might stay in 2nd building that is even closer to the same station, if there is overbooking.

(Every guest preferred that building because of better facility and easier connection to the subway station.)

Koreans and minors cannot stay in this property because of law.

'No show' and “Failure to cancel before 3nights of your arrival' will cause the first night payment.

(If the reservation is more than 3nights, we need to charge 3nights in total.)
