Great location
The hostel is very near between 2 subway stations (Dongmyo & Sinseoldong) so it gave me more flexibility in taking public transport. Just beware that there is another Hostel Korea nearby (it is tricky to find the place at first). Overall I had a pleasant stay.

Nice surprises.
Convenient location for shopping and bus stop from/to Inchon International Airport. Owners didn't talk much but they answered all the questions.

Hostel Korea
The area that this Hostel is located in is very convenient. You are close to Dangdaemun Shopping mall, Dongmyo Station, Imperial Palace, local food shops, and much more. Beds are comfortable and overall clean. Bathrooms are a little sketchy, but this place is such a great deal! So cheap. Highly recommend for anyone staying a week or less or just looking to save a lot of money. Helpful and nice service as well!
