great location，helpful staff。 the young man with glasses is really nice.
Quiet environment. Near to Cultural and Entertainment Museum Near to train station Fresh eggs, bread and jam, and kitchen provided.
Mosquitoes People passing urine outside along the streets
The manager Mr. Hong is very nice and helpful. I booked 2 rooms, triple and double. Instead, he gave us a whole house for our comfort and privacy. He also let us use the washing machine and lend us d Tmoney card for the subway. The rooms are very basic, clean and comfortable. I would highly recomend this place. Kuddos to Mr. Hong, would stay in this hostel again if we come back to Seoul.
Mr.Hong is very nice.The room is spacious.I have a back pain and cannot sleep on the hard mattress so Mr.Hong provided me an extra soft blanket to sleep on and I had the best sleep in Korea here.
The wall is quite thin so if other guest uses the washing machine at night,then you won't be able to sleep.No bathtub,only shower.
The place is strategic. If you value your money and time please choose ABLE Hostel! The manager (Mr. Hong) is very helpful and attends to our needs in a flash!
the manager is so kind and can speak english very well.. near subway station very clean and cheap
Manager is very nice. Manager and staff are kind of helpful. Good location.
No lift and elderly should consider to climbing the stairs. However, Manager is strong to help bring your luggages up and down.
The quality of service to their guests, white linens, cleanliness.
Very narrow stairs. Water closer for the shower and the lavatory is the same. The time indicated as check out is not correct. It did not indicate that there is an add-on cost if payment is made thru credit card unlike other hotels.
Clean room with comfortable beds. Hot water is strong. Mr Hong is very helpful. He assisted in my Everland booking n also helps whenever he can on making reservation. Location close to subway n some malls.
Only bread, jam & milk for breakfast. No varieties. When asked, I was given a box of eggs. To have the same thing for 6 days is really boring. Only provides small towels.n changed every two days. They should consider providing chairs in the room. Stayed on the third floor and found the staircase too steep for old folks.
This was my 3rd stay at Able Hostel so if it weren't good, I wouldn't be back. Great value for money at a fantastic location. Wonderful staff who go out of their way to make our stay comfortable.
The location was fantastic, being very close to the heart of shopping mecca and a stone's throw away form the entrance to the subway. The 2nd guest house was right opposite the DongDaeMun Design Plaza and the bus-stop for the airport limo bus was next to the alley that led to it. The 2nd guest house was also newly renovated so everything was very clean and seemed brand new. There was a water dispenser and a common cooking area on every floor. There were lots of food options around and a night market right at the doorstep of the 2nd guest house. The staff were very helpful and acquiesced to our request to a change of rooms for our next stay to one with a washing machine in the bathroom and an elevator in the building (in the older 1st guest house). We stored our luggage with them for the 3 days that we were away in Jeonju and upon our return, our luggage was already transferred to our new room in the other building a few streets away.
There was no elevator at the 2nd guest house and the staircase was very narrow. It would have been impossible for two of us girls to lug our suitcases up & down without the help of the hostel assistant, Mr Kim. The reception area was also in a separate building so it was a bit inconvenient.
If you're looking for hotel comfort with personalised service, this haven is where you should be. Accompanied with the every frequent and initiated how-are-you and do-you-need-any-help, the service and help rendered by the hotel owner, Mr Hong were impeccable. If you're new to Seoul, the tips and recommendations by the owner will save you time and effort in planning ad worrying too much prior your trip.
Location is very near from subway station...interchange of 3 lines metro. Close to dongdaemun market
A little bit bad smell when entering the main door of hostel
Close proximity to Dongdaemun History and Culture Park subway station.
Room is quite run-down, but was told they are moving to newly renovated site in a few months time.
Location convenient. Staff pleasant, helpful.
Cleanliness of beddings. Unit is too far fm reception due to the move to new building.
Mr Hong and staffs are very friendly,the place is very convenient as downstair has a convenient store, airport limousine bus stop is inly 3 mins walk to reach.
Mr Hong and staff are very accommodating and extremely helpful. They are always ready to lend a hand even at late hours. Location was nice as it was close to the subway, night market and shopping centers. Nicer if they were in a plush location.
They can improve their facilities with a TV and more kitchen utensils. Internet was sometimes down.
owner very helpful..location is good..near to subway..shopping mall..really enjoy our stay at able hostel..will recommend to our friends!
The boss really nice , caring n helpful. We felt so touch when he helping us to carry two large n heavy luggage , rushing to catch the airport bus. We felt lucky for choosing this guest house.
Excellence location, clean, safety, good service & kindly of manager/boss~ Mr.Hong, Highly recommend visit again
Location was very convenient since it was located near a train interchange. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Room was not clean and the bedsheets were dirty. Toilet light was extremely dim. As there are many Russians living in the area, I would not recommend being out too late at night as it occasionally feels rather unsafe.
The hostel manager is so friendly and helpful! We really felt like guests here. Able Hostel is very close to the train station and airport bus station. Will definitely book again!
The staff was extremely helpful. Mr Hong and Dan aided us whenever we needed help with reservation or recommendation during our trip. The location of the hostel was very convenient to the subway and to shopping areas.
Everything was OK,big room,clean, and good located,the staff was polite and kind:)
Location is superb! It is just 5min from Exit 12 (with escalator, 4 floors to road level) of Dongdaemun History & Culture Station. You can also use the escalators at the Lotte Fittin during opening hours (just 2 floors to road level). Airport Bus 6001 also stops right outside the Hostel! The Manager, Mr Hong is very, very helpful. Sent an email b4 our trip with pictures on direction to the Hostel. Friend needed to buy some supplements for the liver for a family member and Mr Hong went out of his way to google for the product and tried contacting the company selling it. There was one evening where we needed to do last minute shopping at Namdaemun Market and Mr Hong helped us surfed the net to check the closing hours. Though the twin room was small BUT it has almost everything - toiletries and a hair dryer! You just need to bring your own towels. As it is Spring when we visited, we requested Mr Hong to turn on the heater for the room. It was nice & warm when we returned late at night after long hours of cold outside. We will definitely come back again :)
