Hostel Korea 11th - Changdeokgung
Ranked #32 of 623 Speciality Lodging in Seoul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 October 2017

Walking distance (about 10mins?) from Anguk station exit 2/3 and airport bus stop. There's 2 convenience stores besides the hostel.

Small towels provided. Not much place in toilet/bathroom to put clothes and toiletries.

In room, there'a mini fridge, tv, flask, cups, wifi & in-room slipper. There're 3 of us & not many accommodations have 3 single beds for triple share but Hostel 11th has which makes it a good option for people (travelling in group of 3) who do not want to share bed.

Basic breakfast (toast, ham, cheese, cereal...) provided.

There're washing machine but no dryer. Have drying rack though.

Friendly staff. One of the staff (a guy whom I forget to get the name) helped us to order food delivery and when the food arrives, even come to our room to inform us (no phone in the room).

The room we stayed in, a plank of the bed frame is loose which resulted in one of us accidentally knocked into it & fall.

Otherwise, overall stay is pleasant.

Nice hostel. They had info about nearby attractions, and were able to book guided tours for me.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get reimbursed when I found out, a day after checking in, that there was a discount for HI members. They suggested just making a reservation without paying for it in future.

I was also a bit concerned about luggage being stored in the stairway.

The hostel is very good located, the rooms are not very clean and the breakfast is a little less than ok.

The crew is very friendly but speak less than average English. I didn't like the fact that the hostel doesn't have areas to socialize but I recommend it if you want to visit all the main spots of Seoul.

I went to this hotel several times and was never disappointed. The quality of the service in a good location, for a cheap price is part of it.

Nice people in the staff, good place for non-smokers, and especially very nice rooftop.

For the price, the quality of this hostel is one of the best. Thanks for all!

It has been a wonderful stay at the above hostel in Changdeokgung. The staff are friendly and very willing to help in any way from suggesting where to visit during my short stay and also guiding the direction to hard to reach areas.
