When I was just arrived, it's a bit tricky to find this hostel. I'm lost, tried to contact the owner but then internet was off. But I was lucky, because someone helped me to find the hostel. He walked me there, and so glad that I met Tae Young - the owner, he read my message. He had already waited for me accross the street. Thanks to the nice Oppa who walked me to the hostel. I stayed here for 5 days. The hostel inside as same as the pictures shown in website. Nice interior. Actually, I was a bit worried because the shower room as you can see on it's photos. But it didn't happen as what I thought before, it went well.. Breakfast was nice, starts from 8-10am, milk, orange juices, cereals, eggs, breads, peanut jam, butter, chocolate pasta. I was really enjoyed the breakfast time, talked with other room mates from different countries, and the musics as its backsound. So nice.. The nearest subway to Blueboat Hostel is Chungmuro exit 5, about 8-10 minutes walked. But my room mates told me, it's more closer to Euljiro-1(il)ga Station. I don't know which exit, sorry. It's near to Myeongdong main street about 10 minutes walk. Gwangjang Market-you can just go by taxi only for 3000-4000 KRW. Its also not really far to go to Gyeongbokgung palace. Just few blocks from hostel, you will find many coffee shops, and restaurants. They clean your room everyday, towel was also provided. Wifi worked really well! So fast. Blueboat was also safe, after around 10 pm, they will locked the main door, only the guest with key can enter, also, thanks to one of the staff that helped me to book Nanta Show ticket with 20% discount! One thing that I would never forget about Blueboat is Tae Young. Not only because he's helpful, but the day before I left, I told him that I will leave early morning, so maybe we couldn't meet again the next day. I asked him to wait for me, and yes, he was waited for us! We took some pictures together, and by chance we went out for a moment on that chill midnight. Just a light chit chat but it was really memorable, he feels like an old friend to me. Like oppa ! ^^ Thanks Blueboat Hostel, Tae Young and staffs! I wish I could go back to your place soon.. See ya!
