“Best Guesthouse around here !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

The owner is very kind and all the staff too, they are helpful, they can talk in english it's very usefull. Rooms are perfect, cozy, we spent a very good time in this guesthouse. Situated near Hongdae the center of Seoul's nightlife, it's a very good place to stay. Near the subway station Hongik univ exit 4 :) I will stay here at the futur if I come back in Korea !

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We came without reservation but they made all possible to find the place for us for 2 night and even spent their time to call around and find something else for the third night:)
Location is perfect for young people who like the night life (as it is a walking distance) and very convenient to get a train to the airport.
Someone said that the room is too small? If we wanted the palace we would stay in Hilton,but for that price the room is just fine. It's not the space it's the staff that makes the stay memorable- we really felt that we were welcomed in Boa, the staff gave us the tricks about prices for main attractions and always greeted a with a warm smile.
We are definitely staying in Boa next time we are passing by Seoul:)
P.S. as we arrived the staff gave us a small souvenir - a hand fan with Boa logo that we are keeping using on our travel:)

Boa Guesthouse was really convenient and it is about 5-10 mins walk from the subway. The staff there are really helpful. The room is really clean and they gave good facilities like washing machine which allows us to do our laundry,

Boa Guesthouse provided more than what we pay. I had 5 pax room for RM360 per night which is RM72 per pax. I think all the hotel price in Seoul is around there although is quite exp compare to other Asia country like in thai and so on. But i have no regrets and very satisfy for what is provided from Boa Guesthouse. Morning simple breakfast is provided, kitchen area for cooking, pc together with printer is provided, washing machine on the roof tops, and the staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. No complaints and very patient even i asked tons of question. Very comfortable to stay although room space is not big. Definitely will go again for my next visit.

This was a high quality Hostel near public transport in Seoul. The Hostel has very good facilities, including a free washing machine.
I stayed in a single room and the were enough small extra's included to be 3* Hotel quality.
The Hostel was fairly quiet when I was there, but there was plenty of room in the common area/kitchen to help meet other travellers.

We had a twin share room at the hostel. Our room was clean and had everything we need (including good air conditioning). The staff are very friendly and helpful. The only issue was that the noise of the bathroom in the floor above was a bit noisy late at night. Overall good value for money.

Boa Guesthouse was an excellent place to stay for the price that they charge you. Excellent value. The place was clean and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good (eggs, toast, cereal, milk). No complaints at all and I would definitely go back to stay there!
