Highly recommend!
Super clean and neat room, it may look very petite from the photos but it is still spacious enough to open your luggage. The location is super convenient where you can find all kinds of foods nearby even in the late evening. Metro stations are not difficult to find, just 5-7 mins from walking. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Their breakfast is very basic with some ham, toasts and cereals. Will visit this hotel again.

I highly recommend!
Great hostel/B&B in the heart of the Seoul shopping area. Close to the subway, and tourist areas. The staff was superb, the room was clean and very comfortable, and the tiny washing machines, were a great add-on. I highly recommend.

Myeongdong street is just downstairs! Philstay is located just infront of a 24h restaurant which is quite popular, there is a 7-11 store, pharmacy and olive young drug store nearby too! The receptionist is really helpful and friendly. You can drop off your luggage before your check in time and you can just shop downstairs until your time to check in! Overall, would recommend!
