            It is easily accessible to the public transportation route, friendly caretaker,good wifi, simple breakfast and 24hr kitchen for food and drinks, a good value for money, close to eating, shopping outlets.

            Room cleaning if possible to be done daily, face towel is to small for bathing or shower.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            Good assistance from the staff , good suggestion for the food and there is on THAI staff for Thai people too. It's location is not to far from Ewha women university and can easily find from the map they give with the email from this hostel. Breakfast is a self service style and you can do fired egg and omelet by yourself. I do recommend this hostel to my friend.

            They do not accept the credit card. You should pay with only cash.

          • Group of friends
            5.0

            All staff at Sinchon Hostel are young and energetic people, very helpful and speak good english. They good at guiding us to use the train lines.

            What we did not like: 1. Bathroom too small and dirty with molded wall 2. We can hear noises ( people talk, children scream) from next door room

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            It near the subway station & airport bus station. There is washing machine for clothes cleaning. Kitchen can be used anytime as well as the computers. No worry about getting hungry, restaurants just next doors. The staffs were able to speak English & Chinese well which help a lot.

            The bed wasn't that comfort & water heater is not consistent. Water can be very hot & cold after sometime.

          • Single
            7.4

            staffs are very kind, and location is excellent to me.

            between the rooms you need insulation to protect noise.

            Cool staff guys, Not bad self service breakfast. Fair price. Good place in Seoul.

            It has two building, the left on is not good, no elevator, bad smell, not clean. But the right one is better. Breakfast is self service, you should cook for yourself and wash your dishes after meal! It is simple, egg, noodles, tea and coffee. I never suggest this room in fall or winter, it is too cold, they turn on the heater just during the night! I got a bad colds during my stay there.

            7.8

            What I like about shinchon is its surrounding area, ewha women's university, many interesting coffee shop and budget friendly shopping area, also near to airport limo bus stop and subway.

            If I can get the cleaner room, that would be perfect.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            The location is quite convenient, near a Metro Station. The area is quite nice.

            The kitchen was a bit crowded.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Breakfast and easy wifi

            Housekeeping must not dispos any items whicu belongs to guest. As for us ,, my wife left her facial soap and shower cap is missing from the toilet.. And she is very up set with that cuz she must clean her makeup..

          • Single

            The location, staff, and security were very good. I also appreciated that the room included a small refrigerator. Although I did not use the hostel's cooking facilities, many other guests did during my stay. Also, the hostel's travel instructions from the airport and location map made it very easy to find. Lastly, the hostel's staff were quite helpful and answered all my questions.

            Since this was the first time I stayed in a hostel, I was not exactly sure what to expect. During my stay, I did find the place somewhat noisy because of the late hour activities of the other much younger guests in the hostel. Also, my room lacked a window to the outside which made it feel like a cell, but this was a minor issue for me.

          • Group of friends

            Good place and friendly staff.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            The room and bath are spacious and beds are comfortable. Additionally the staff are friendly and courteous. As for location wise, it is very easy to find and moving about is simple. Good as home based for travelling in Seoul. There are several food places just outside the main entrance. The best point having a supermarket a stone throw away.

            There were only 2 working stoves to cook breakfast in the morning. Not ideal when there is a crowd. The tv should comes with remote :D

          • Family with children
            7.8

            They have very friendly Staff, very accommodating. It is very close to cheap shopping for clothes and shoes.

            Garbage was not collected regularly. Bathroom is plain and has mildew

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            The staff were very friendly, accommodating and helpful. They even let us borrow their special debit card to get a discount at Lotte World.

            Self service breakfast.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            Cleanless, fully support staff, location, free and strong wifi, breakfast, kitchen facilities.

            No mat in my room so everytime I come out from the bathroom, the floor of my room will be wet.
