Birdsnest Hostel in Hongdae

DISCLAIMER: BIRDSNEST HOSTEL HAS MOVED TO A NEW PLACE UNDER THE NAME OF 'THIS IS.. GUESTHOUSE'. THE NEW LOCATION IS JUST CLOSE BY. DROP BY ANY QUESTION.

It's May already. Been couple of months since my trip to Korea, 
and I've been missing that country ever since. 
Ahh,I need to go there again and stay longer and explore more! ^_^


So this post is gonna be about the Birdsnest Hostel,
 that I stayed while I'm in Seoul.
 It's my second hostel after Namu GH.

Owned and run by Mr DongUk Lee.
It's a hostel that he just set up after coming back from his RTW trip.

We first arrived at the hostel without any reservation,on one cold day..
Luckily, DongUk  attended us.
We asked whether any rooms available and he said yes.
Later he lead us to our dorm room.




We opted for the mixed dorm, 18000 won per person/night after 10% winter-discount.
However, he told us to stay in the female dorm,with the same price.
Thanks! Usually female only dorm a bit pricy,but he's so nice to let us.

For a budget traveller like me,
this hostel is great for my money already :D
Free breakfast & wifi are included.
Hot shower, soap & shampoo are provided too.As well as towels.
Hair dryer, ironing board & iron to ease the travellers.
Ah,ondol/ heated floor also made available when it's cold ;)
Usually on less busy day, we could chat with the owner.
Since he's a traveller himself, he has lots of story to share too.
He's very kind & always wanted to help us in any ways he could.
