“Ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

This is the second time staying at Boa Guesthouse and just like the first, it didn't disappoint me.
Great location (close to Hongdae area and metro), the place is clean, facilities like washing machines and dryers and friendly/helpful staff.

Yes, the walls a little bit thin but I guess for the price you're paying and it being a 'guesthouse' you'll have just have to compromise a little. At the same time it is up to your fellow guests with the level of noise they make.

Thanks for making us feel welcomed. Will be back next time I'm in Seoul :)

I am JUST getting to this review (after saying in the Summer of 2013). I went twice, and left for Tokyo for 2 weeks. They were kind enough to store my extra luggage (I was abroad the entire summer, so I had a LOT) even though my time away was a bit over their "limit" on their website.

ALL of the staff were super courteous and helpful, from helping me buy movie tickets (hard to do without an alien registration number or social security number) to giving me directions/recommendations.

The building was always spotless, and the room, while small, was very comfortable (I loved having my own private bathroom!). The location can't be beat--it's only about 1 block from the Hongdae Station, which is on the 2 subway line that circles around Seoul, and on a new airport-shuttle line that takes you to both Incheon and Gimpo airports in under an hour.

I've been recommending this place to all of my friends/relatives who will be going to Seoul, and I would stay here again in a heart beeat!

I had a wonderful stay at Boa Guesthouse in Jan '14. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The area is fantastic and very convenient. It's on the Airport line so no need to transfer trains (with heavy baggage), and easy to get to all areas of interest. The local area is bustling with great restaurants, entertainment and shopping. The room is clean and provides everything you may need. Plus the free breakfast was simple but great for a budget traveller. Highly recommend this as a place to stay, and would stay there again.

If you are a young foreign visitor in Seoul Boa guesthouse is the place to stay. The location is a awesome. 200mts From hongik university Subway station (line2). You can Get anywhere From That station. Also, Hongdae is known for Its restaurantes shops and clubs. Convenience stores are nearby (gs25 and lotte mart) the guesthouse. I stayed in a One room with private bathroom equipped with tv and refrigerator. Rooms are cleaned if requested with no extra charge. They gave me towels too. Breakfast is included (eggs coffee bread and juice). Kitchen is Nice and spacious. Staff are friendly and always willing to help. I will definitely come back.

The service provided is comparable to 5 stars hotel. You’ll find friendly and helpful front desk staff with excellent command of English available 24 hours. The room is clean and with no cigarette smell, you’ll appreciate it if you are not a smoker. The hostel location is strategic; it’s close to subway and easy to locate from Subway exit 4. Overall I’d a pleasant stay and will definitely stay here again for my next visit. A big thanks to the staff that assisted me at late hours and early morning, I was really impressed by your excellent services.

Room Tip: Hongdae shopping is nearby.

My brother and I stayed there several nights. It was extremely clean, the bedroom was great, the staff is super friendly and even when one of them didn't speak english, she'd still do her best to help us out. It's like a home. The self-service breakfast is awesome, orange juice, tea, coffee, cereal, eggs, toasts. The kitchen is free-use and spacious, the living room is nice too. Free laundry (really helpful). The price is very accessible especially it being in Seoul. The location is fabulous, it's really easy to get there, very close to bus stations, to the metro station and relatively close to great places to visit. Hongdae is super good location and the guesthouse is at the heart of it. On the whole, I would totally recommend this place to anyone staying in Seoul!! We had a great time.
