My worst ever backpacker experience Oct 09, 2012
I recently stayed in Myeondong hostel for 6 days. It was a very horrible stay, the service was poor and the place was smelly and there is no elevator. The highest level is 6th floor, so you will be expected to carry your luggage all the way up. The only plus point is the location is 5 min walking distance to the main Myeondong shopping street, and 1 min walking to the subway.

We stayed in the same room for 6 days, however there is no room service throughout the stay. When we asked the receptionist what about the dustbin waste, we were told to empty it ourselves in the kitchen waste bin.

The kitchen waste bin area is very smelly, the waste has pilled up for days and there is even liquid spilling off to the floor. it was a horrible smelly area, no wonder i didnt see any guest using the kitchen facilities.

Both my roomates and i had rashes and itchiness after staying in the place. Its basically self service, hence you have to get your toilet roll, towel etc from the reception. However, the reception area could be empty at times, hence locating the receptionist is a problem.

We wanted to move out and ask for refund after the first night, however this was not allowed.

Would not recommend this place to any backpackers. i have stayed in more than 10 other backpackers inn in korea and other countries, this is my worst ever experience and i will never come back again.
