Good 7.6 From 63 reviews

Had I not gotten very specific directions from a local store owner, I would likely have passed the alley where this hostel entrance was. The owner/manager that welcomed me was very friendly and held my luggage til check in. Although, 'holding luggage' meant leaving it out in the entry way which did not seem safe, it seemed someone was always at the window. The rooms were dated and although there was a full bathroom in my private room, it was not particularly well kept. I would not have taken a bath in that tub. The heat was not turned on til 7pm, so it got a little chilly before then, but was just right for sleeping. (There is no heat in the bathroom, though, which made showers chilly.) The free breakfast was barely what I would call a breakfast. Toast with butter, juice and instant coffee. Left a lot to be desired. But it was a cheap place in a good location for shopping and catching the subway. It felt safe enough even being down a narrow alley.

Great location that we will sure come back again
It's a great stay at Kimstay. The boss is a very friendly and nice person. Me and my hubby actually book again the stay after we are back from Busan. He treat us nice ginseng tea home made by his mother after knowing that we are actually on our honeymoon trip. Thanks for the 'manpower' :) We enjoy very much the stay at Kimstay. The location is definitely convenient. Worth for the price that we are paying.

Friendly staff and convenient location
My sister and I stayed at Kimstay and we had an awesome experience!! The staff was not only friendly, but exceedingly hospitable making sure all our needs were met. Locationally speaking, there aren't many other better places than this- it's very close to the airport bus stop and even closer to the Sinchon subway station. It was a little bit difficult to find, (it's in a small alley behind U-Plex) but once you find it, you will see just how convenient of a location it is. The rooms were clean, the entire place was clean, and the wifi was fast. I would recommend Kimstay to anyone wanting to stay in the Sinchon area.
