My first stay in Seoul. The owner was very helpful, friendly and patient. The common room was our chillax place after a whole day of discovering Seoul. I especially love their kitchen with cooking utensils and stocked fridge. We made our breakfast before head out. It's convenient. However, the condition of bedroom can be improved. The area below my bed... More

Although we arrived at 5AM at the hostel, the staff waited there for us. they are friendly and helpful. they even recommended nice tourist destination and places for us to eat. the place is quiet and very accessible to subway. We plan to go back there in winter and we will definitely stay at Bangrang Hostel.

We stayed in Bangrang hostel for a week. It was very convenient for us to take the subway as it is super close to Chungjeongno station (line 2,5). You can even walk to Seoul station (line 4) depending on your destination so you don't have to transfer too many times using the subway. The staffs were friendly and helpful, and... More

The owner is nice and friendly, the facilities are great and the location is very convenient; easily accessible to lines 2 and 5 at Chungjeongno station which will get you to most of the popular areas in Seoul. Very affordable price and a great place to meet new people!

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
