This place was splendid. We arrived at night from the airport and had no trouble navigating Seoul's subway system to get to the hostel (the instructions the owner gives to you are very straight forward - you don't need to spend money on a cab!) As far as the "hill" people were talking about in the negative comments, it's more... More

I stayed in Bangrang hostel for 2 months. I was so lucky to come across this lovely hostel on my first visit to Seoul. Bangrang hostel is easily located between exit 5 and exit 6 of Chungjeongno station. Before coming to Seoul I had not done any research, however, the kindly owner introduced the city in great detail to me... More

I decided to stay at this hotel after a couple of my friends had commented on what a great accommodation it was. It was pretty easy to find as the staff send you an email beforehand which provides you a detailed step by step route on how to get to the hostel (whether it be train, bus, etc). My first... More

Me and my sister selected this place for the last leg of our tour after reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Place wise, it was in a good location, very near Chungjeongno station and the airport bus stop is just down the road. There are convenience stores and places to eat nearby as well. Nanta theatre is within walking... More

Went for a holiday to Seoul with my brothers. We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was really friendly and kind to us. The location was great - less than 2 minute walk to the Cheongjeongno Station. The room and bathroom were really clean and the room size was perfect. The common room was comfortable with free wifi, great... More

I was there with my 4 friends for 5 nights, and we’re very satisfied with the stay. It has great location, near from Cheongjeongno Station, free breakfast, free wifi, and good common room. It also has digital lock with password which is very safe. Staffs speak English fluently and showed us how to get many places in Seoul.

My cousins and I stayed here for 6 nights. We enjoyed our stay in this Hostel. Since we are four in the group, we took the largest room on the 3rd floor and we have our own toilet. Our room and the toilet are clean. There's also a washing machine downstairs that's free of use so in case you've run... More
