Arlene from Philippines
Solo traveler
1 Person in 4-Bed Dormitory - Female Only
Stayed 4 nights in April 2017
Central Location
This was my second time at Bong Backpackers. The location is good but I find that their cleanliness level somehow diminished. I arrived with a bunch of garbage in the front yard. Also, they told me to transfer to a 6-bed mixed dorm from a 4-bed female dorm on the last night because they overbooked. I didn't mind because I will leave anyway and they returned the difference to my booking (a little amount) but this should not have happened in the first place. The reason why I'll go back here again in my next visit is because it's in a central location and because the young Filipina who worked there (sorry dear, I forgot your name) rocked.

6-Bed Dormitory -- Mixed
Stayed 1 night in January 2017
Value for money
Location: very easy to find. staff provided the map so you can easily navigate the hostel. located in the sungkyungkwan university area. streets lined up with various restaurants, CGV cinema and shops. Transportation: near a bus stop. 1 minute walk from airport shuttle bus. 5-7 mins walk from Hyehwa station. Bedroom: booked the dormitory. the bed was not that clean, many hairs on the floor. bed was not that comfortable. the other occupant there turned the light off at 10 pm. so be careful not to make noises at night. apparently some occupants live kind-of-permanently there. but they were friendly. Facility: laundry (with staff help) and small kitchen with fridge. they let me used their vacuum cleaner for my luggage. Bathroom: toilet and shower room were separated. toilet was pretty clean, but not the shower room. they don't provide basic toiletries (no soap and shampoo) but i got a towel. Staff: not the chit chat type. the staff ready to help when you need them. they replied your mail very fast. Breakfast: toast and jam. coffee too. pretty basic.

Edali from South Korea
Solo traveler

Stayed 5 nights in December 2016
Very good.
I stayed here many times (every time I went to Seoul actually), and it's pretty good. It's in a university area so there are many restaurants around the area and convenient stores. Subway station is a short walk from the hostel and right in front of the hostel is A bus stop in which also you find the buses to the airport. Maria is so nice and the beds and rooms are comfy.

Twin Room with Shared Bathroom
Stayed 6 nights in May 2016
Location, Friendly Staff, Clean
Great place to stay away from crowded touristy areas. This area is near Universities, so great cafe and cheap food options, lively pubs at night and barely 5 minutes walk to the subway which is a direct line (3 stops if my memory serves me well) to Myeong-dong - really convenient. We stayed in a private twin room, comes with a safe and hair dryer. Staff is friendly and helpful and speaks english fluently.

It's close to the subway and plenty of cheap restaurants, you can walk to some of the palaces, and it's comfortable for an underground dorm, feels cosy and clean
