Good for sleepcaytion :)”
We arrived later in the morning in short (late check in) no FO at that time but there is note on the door telling your room.number and where is key.. :) breakfast is bread and coffee All in all good value of money
Not so good”
The price was reasonable, but I felt a little stuffy because I had a room underground, and I felt sorry for the dark interior. Most of all, I felt sorry for the Korean man because he was a little blunt. It was also inconvenient to have the bathroom back up to the first floor. But the location was really good. It was close to Daehangno and it wasn't hard to get to Hyehwa Station. Oh, the atmosphere wasn't very good because I piled up supplies at the entrance. I don't want to recommend it in general.
A good stay”
Mr. Bong let me check-in very early and the staff name Mimi is good to talk with. She’s kind and helpful for all my needs. Thank you for the stay, I had a good sleep in 6 bed shared room, shared bathroom.
Fine place. Not enough clean . To small breakfast. But enough to put your had in thr end of the day.
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.
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.
You get what you pay for”
Pros: great location, comfy well heated rooms, warm showers and affordable. Cons: staff do not interact with travellers, no atmosphere, no security to speak of - after the front desk closes at night the front door still remains open and the dormitory is kept unlocked at all times with only 2 lockers for 6 beds, one single toilet that is only cleaned once daily for the entire place - makes zero sense considering the number of beds in the hostel. I have travelled all over Asia for the past 7 months and this is one of the few places I would not stay at again, unless I was really running out of money.
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.
Clean, New, Good location”
I stayed here for 2 nights during winter season. Everything is new, bed, mattress, deposit box etc. quiet place. Staff here can speak English. Super great location near to bus station, Cineplex, fast food, subway station. Great value for its price.
My friend and I are happy to stay at the Bong backpackers. The location is good, we walked to Dongdaimum about 20mins and to Hyewa station about 5mins. Restaurant closed to the backpacker. The only thing to concern is the toilet(only one)..but they also allowed to use staff’s toilet. So there will be 2toilets only
Proper efficiency for back-packer”
Many places to playing, clean bed and kind staff. It's really good for backpackers but who want to looking for high facilities like hotel or room with bathroom, it will be inconvenient.
central location, great staff”
Our stay at the Bong Backpackers was great. Yong and Angelica were very accommodating and helpful.
Very good location and comfortable to stay
The place is in a great location and easy to find. It is near the bus stop a few mins walk from the subway. Near the restaurants, other shops and convinient stores.
Like Home! ”
I stayed there for a month. I felt really confortable and I felt like at home there! A soap in the toilets and a little improvement about the cleaning and it will be the perfect place to stay!
The only good thing about this place is the location. other than that, the guests that stays there either gonna keep you up at night from snoring or switching on the lights. 1 cubicle for toilet and 2 shower cubicles.
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.
