There is a stream of K-Pop on the TVs at this memorabilia-adorned hostel in the heart of Hongdae's bar area next to Hongik University. But even if you aren't a K-Pop fan, designer-like dorms make Kpopstay an excellent choice – soft beds in pod-style bunks with total-privacy curtains and especially large individual lockers.
