Banana backpackers

Price,value for money,service
The guesthouse is a good 15 minutes walk from the Sookmuyng university subway station next to a busy boring street. A bit far as I'm a fast walker some people will need more time. The rooms are big but, strange to me, have no curtains so you walk up early if you're a light sleeper like me. Apart from this big negative point all was fine, nice staff and you can take your own, towels,toilet paper and soap/shampoo that is widely available. I don't use the kitchen but it seems good.

price,many things available
Good, see my previous comment. They had some rules including not drinking alcohol in the room. Maybe they had some negative experience with it but I didn't like as I'd like to have a few drinks in my room after going out. Though I have to say they were not too strict on it as the employee mentioned that drinking a few beers is not a problem. Close to Itaewon one of the busy area's in the evening ( 3 subway stops, although you have to change lines) Or 10 minutes by taxi for 4000-5000 won.

Friendly Staff

Friendly Staff, Good Price, Peaceful Surrounding
The overall stay with Banana backpackers was good ! Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a weather forecast board at the lobby and umbrellas are provided. Location is easy to find and the map provided on the website is very detail. It would be great if breakfast is provided.

Cleanliness, friendliness of staff, location
I booked a room last minute at Banana Backpackers Guesthouse and was very happy with the choice. The staff was very friendly, the room very clean and comfortable. I will definitely consider staying again if/when I'm in Seoul!

Awesome place and staff

the staff are great and the beds are super comfy.
Fantastic! Although it's a bit tricky to find. Just head for Yongsan high school and it's up a side street.

Friendly guesthouse

nice location, cleanliness, spacious room
The guesthouse just moved to a new location after I checked-out. I'm not sure about a new place, but surely will stay if I visit Seoul again.
