the hotel location is really convenient! we couldn’t expect better location for our second trip to seoul. the room was a bit small but it wasn’t a problem for us! however, the wifi wasn’t really good in our room, got a lot of connection problem during our stay. Having a breakfast included in the price of our booking was also really good! there were a lot of choices and everyday has different food options

I stayed at the 57 Myeongdong Hostel for two and a half weeks this summer. The location was very convenient- just one block from metro station and Namdaemun market and steps away from restaurants, shopping and great street food at the Myeongdong night market. The hostel was clean and safe. We stayed one night in a smaller standard room and the rest of our stay in a deluxe room with a view. Both rooms were pleasant, comfortable, clean and as represented on the website.The included breakfast provided a lot of choices and it was a great way to start the day. I enjoyed the rooftop picnic tables. The view was beautiful and gave me a peaceful way to experience the city. The staff spoke English so well and they were kind and helpful. They patiently answered lots of questions for this inexperienced traveler and made my trip with my daughter so much easier and relaxing. This is a hostel and so of course it is a different experience than a luxury hotel but that is exactly what I wanted. Little things like washing your own dishes with other guests gave me the chance to connect with travelers from other countries which added richness to my travel experience. Last but not least, the very reasonable price allowed me the freedom to spend money on activities that we really enjoyed while we were in Seoul. Thank you to all of the staff for making my trip so memorable. (Especially the lovely man at the entry on the first floor who never failed to wish me a good day and welcome me home.) We look forward to staying with you again on our next trip to Korea.
