Nice place to stay. The staff was really friendly and welcoming. I stayed in a separate building- it was nice and quiet. I had to walk outside a few steps for the bathroom, but considering the bathrooms were separate they were super clean which I definitely appreciated. I don't think there was any wifi in the building I was in,... More

Location of the guesthouse, it is about 10 minutes walk from the Hyehwa subway. Lots of eateries near Bong... More

Bong house is a very chill and spacious hostel/hotel. It is very clean and quiet and has literally the best, smartest, and most attractive staff ever. Mr. Bong is also very nice and knowledgeable. Thanks for being my home in Korea for a month!

This place is affordable and budget friendly for group of friends. Although room is small, it is clean and comfortable. Moreover, the staffs are very attentive and friendly. The location is also strategic and the station is located near tourist spot like dongdaemun. I will definitely return to Bong house again in the future!

Strategic location where there are a lot of restaurants and beauty stores nearby. Walking distance to subway station. Staffs here are friendly and helpful. They can speak good English and thus communication is not a problem. Simple breakfast is provided too. It's worth any penny.
