Seoul City officially launched the new Hi Seoul Youth Hostel, which is capable of accommodating 330 people, in Yeongdeungpo-gu Seoul on March 28, after completing a test operation that began on March 2 and lasted for over 20 days.
The Yeongdeungpo Branch of the Hi Seoul Youth Hostel (total floor space of 9,807㎡) comprises seven stories and one underground level, and has 95 guest rooms capable of accommodating up to 330 people. Located in close proximity to the city center, the hostel is expected to absorb part of the rising demand for accommodation among foreign tourists, including those from China, thus helping to ease accommodation shortages in the capital city.
Hi Seoul Youth Hostels are located in places with good transportation, and provide visitors with convenient access to major tourist attractions in the city as well as nearby places of interest for sightseeing.
Hi Seoul Youth Hostels offer a wide range of rooms, including rooms with a single bed, rooms for up to four people, rooms for groups of six to ten people, and family rooms, enabling diverse groups, individuals, backpackers, business travelers, and family groups to use them comfortably and conveniently.
Hi Seoul Youth Hostels also have specialty rooms designed to cater to the more specific requirements of families and the disabled. They also include a convention hall with 120 to 200 seats, a large-scale conference room with 60 to 80 seats, various medium conference rooms, and seminar rooms.
Since the rates are relatively affordable at youth hostels, visitors can use convenient and clean hotel-grade facilities at low cost.
