Stayed in this guesthouse for 4 nights with my sister & friends and we really felt like it's our home away from home.

We had enjoyed our stay on the rooftop and it felt like home instantaneously. The room was big enough for the four of us but the bathroom was rather small. The location was great, 10mins walk to Hyehwa station and many local restaurants and convenient stores. The owner had personally came to our room to greet us which was so... More

Bong House is not next to the subway station but the direction the owner gives is very clear. There are everything you need in the neighborhood, food, grocery etc. The owner Mr. Bong is very friendly, he is well traveled and knows what a backpacker needs. It's a great place to meet some people, around your age, excited by traveling... More

The owner is HIlarious. Place is chilled out. Free beer in the pub downstairs is usually the start of something good in Seoul. Suppose though it depends on who is staying there. But it was good craic when I was there. Few all night shops around the hostel too. fairly safe.
