Everything means cheap price and clean bathroom and good location. :) The place is just 2 mins from the main street of Gangnam and there is a small... More

This hostel is located right in the middle of Gangnam. It's actually quite hard to find if you don't speak Korean and don't have a map, but it seems they have some directions on their website which I did not look at. Other than that, this is a great hostel, everything is new and clean and they give you a... More

Great place to stay, good service and easy to get to. I was just in Gangnam for the one night, and when I found the entrance to the hostel it looked kind of shabby and by the time I entered the decrepit looking elevator, I thought maybe I'd made a mistake, but one I got up to the fifth floor...

The JA in Gangnam is a flat in a fairly old apartment which was not the easiest place to find, but as soon as you open the door, everything is perfect. If you don't know where to eat or have fun or relax, ask Dan or his wife and they will tell you/ look it up if they are not... More

Neighborhood Profile
Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam
If you thought business and fun couldn’t mix, look no further than urban Gangnam and the nearby neighborhoods. On the surface, Gangnam comes off as a strictly business district with a plethora of high-rise office buildings jutting into the sky and the steady streams of office workers bustling about. But interlaced within are a string of shops, restaurants, bars, and other spots for entertainment. If Myeongdong is the generic meet-up and hangout spot north of the Han River, Gangnam is its answer for those on the south side. As evening comes, Gangnam comes alive with its countless neon lights attracting hordes of office workers, friends, and couples for food, drinks, perhaps a bit of singing at a noraebang, and more drinks. And the smattering of clubs around also draws plenty of folks looking to unwind and show off their moves on the dance floor. On weekends, the crowds gets bigger, the energy buzzes to a seemingly nonstop high, and Gangnam makes it clear why so many call Seoul the city that never sleeps.
