Im a Filipino and a regular client of Hostel Tommy, I travelled more often in Seoul and found this amazing place its near the subway of jongno, I love the yellow color and charm vibes of this hostel, The bed was extremely comfortable. The room was spacious and clean. The vintage aesthetics were awesome and you can go to rooftop for relaxation... you can play guitar if you want... Mr. TOMMY was so friendly he can assist you and take some photos you can check to his IG i highly recommend this Hostel.

In actual, I have stayed at HostelTommy twice (in 2017 and 2018). Already fell in love for this place in 2017, from very minimum basic necessities provided to several improvements made when revisited in 2018. From 2019 until now, I can see my good friend Tommy (through his Instagram and Facebook) has put in a lot of efforts to make more improvements to the hostel. Please experience it yourself, because I also really want to visit again and again.

Highly recommended place to stay in South Korea when you are travelling on a budget. The room is spacious enough for me and my friend. Everything we need is there, including umbrella and selfie stick (just make sure to return them after using😂). The staffs are also very helpful and approachable. Uncle Tom was incredible too as he can speak many languages, including Filipino. I can never forget that day in the dining area where he surprised a guest from Kazakhstan by he speaking his language! It was just amazing.😃 He is attentive to the needs of his guests (thank you for the heat packs😍) and makes sure to interact with us during breakfast (which is free 😁). The location of the hostel is also very good as it very near Insadong and Exit 7 Jongno 3 Subway Station. It is near Changdeokgung Palace and a temple, thereby the area is generally quiet which makes it perfect if you want to rest after a day full of activities. All in all, Hostel Tommy is a perfect place to stay. Will surely be back in the future. 😃 P.S. I miss this doggy from our room. P.P.S. You can follow Hostel Tommy on Instagram! At the end of his guests'stay, Uncle Tom asks if he can take a pics and upload on his account.😉 (Hi Uncle Tom, screen grabbed this pic from your IG 😁)
