This was the hanbok place that was included in the Discover Seoul Pass, where you can get to enjoy the experience for free for 1.5h. Reached early on a Sat morning and was lucky there was not much of a crowd. You get to pick out 2 hanboks to try on and I had fun mixing and matching the jacket and the long dress. There were a lot of choices for females, but not so much for males.

The experience also include a free hairstyle (top up of 1000-3000 won needed for hair accessories/more elaborate hairstyles). I also rented a handbag for 2000 won to complete the look. As I didn't think that 1.5h is sufficient, I also topped up 10,000 won for 1 more hour of rental.

Enjoyed my experience at Hanboknam and strongly recommend it! However I would suggest to head there earlier as it got super crowded at around noon - afternoon period, when I returned the hanbok. Hence service might be lacking and wait times will be longer (for dressing rooms and staff to tie your hair).

My husband and I had such a fun time selecting and wearing our costumes throughout our visit of Gyeongbokgung Palace. It was tricky for us to find the location. I called the number and the receptionist was so kind to come out and find us as I told her where we were (we were not that far away). They were helpful in helping us get situated. Our ticket said to come between 9:30-10:30, and we appreciated beating the crowds that gathered more throughout the day. They were all friendly and helpful. You can choose between traditional and royal (I think those are the categories), which are different in price. We just paid the difference of 10,000 won because we wanted to rent the royal costumes and my husband wanted to add the traditional hat. By the time we returned our hanboks, the rental place was really busy.

Our pictures from our trip were wonderful! I highly recommend this experience. The location of our rental place gave us time to eat a delicious lunch in the area. We went back to watch the changing of the guard after we returned our hanboks, and then we just walked to Bukchon Hanok Village afterwards, which was a great experience.

Okay guys, I get it that you may be busy and swarmed. But something is really wrong if both of your stores are operated by staff who do not practise simple courtesy to all their customers.

I rented a hanbok from Hanboknam Changdeokgung branch on Tuesday 31 Oct. The store had a good selection and the young woman assigned to assist me was very helpful and kind. The manager of the store however was something else. When I came back to the store, I opened my locker and went to change up. When I came out a few minutes later, my locker was locked and the key on my locker door was gone. So I told the manager that one of her customers must have taken the key and used the locker. She didn’t bother to listen to me and talked over me and insisted I pay for the “lost” key. I tried again to explain to her that I did not lose the key as I had opened it to get my clothes out but to no avail. One of her staff tried to explain to her but she told her off and then a Korean customer tried to help me by explaining to the manager. She retorted “How do I know the customer would return to open the locker?”. I gave up and paid her 10,000 KRW as she refused to give me back my ID unless I pay her. It was a very bad experience. She is not fit to be a manager as she treats her customers with not just disrespect but disdain.

I came early but even the nicest outfits and accessories were too worn out . Hairdo was just ok because the person was in a rush and didn’t tie hairs securely.

This is one the most seen attraction at Seoul! There are rent services for wearing the traditional Hanbok which gives a free entry to the palace areas. The structure is very beautiful and the Fall Season gives ample photo ops!Overall, a super memory for life!

There was a good range to choose from and the staff were very helpful. The location is easy to find (a yellow building on the left in a side street off the main road)
Only 5 minutes walk to the palace entering by a side gate near the palace museum
Advance booking avoids the queue

I wanted to wear some traditional clothes while in Seoul and this was a great way to do that and see the palaces at the same time. I went for the 2.5 hr option so that I would have to look at the palaces. When in the shop I was told what I needed to get and was left to look at and choose at my leisure. There were size guides on the wall to help you choose. After choosing you get changed and there are lockers for you to put your possessions. Even though the weather was terrible for the first part of my rental, I enjoyed looking around the palaces in traditional gear. The shop was easy to find and very close to the palaces.

It was very fulfilling to be able to try wearing traditional Korean attire. Two and a half hours is enough to go around the Gyeongbokgung Palace grounds and the surrounding areas. We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that entrance into the Gyeongbokgung Palace is free if you're wearing Hanbok. Some of the Hanbok at the store we went to have some defects though (missing buttons, small tears, little stains, etc.) so make sure to pick yours carefully. Overall, it was a very good experience. Wearing the Hanbok is a must while in Seoul.
