Stayed 1 night in May 2023

a very reasonable price. The location is the best to see the palaces of Korea”

Although facilities are insufficient, this is the center of Seoul, where the Joseon royal family used to be. 3 minutes walk from the station. It's really close. The accommodation has been renovated from a traditional house. The quality is not good, but it is suitable for backpacking. There are many rooms and many foreigners. It's a very small room, but instead you can get intimate with your roommates. a friendly employee Make sure to go to Daiso! :) (Sorry for the broken English. It'st a translator!)
