  • This hostel was excellent. The staff were very helpful and out-going, and my stay was very enjoyable. The hostel is within walking distance to many attractions in Seoul (the subway was also very close by if you don't fancy walking.) My only (little) complaint: It gets a little cold in some rooms during winter but there are portable heaters and blankets you just gotta ask for them!

  • Staff is awesome. Super helpful. Facilities are OK - not pristine clean, but not bothersome. A lot of travelers come through Bong House, and there are a few long-term stays as well. Overall, Bong House is what I imagine a hostel to be.

  • Really enjoyed staying at Mr Bongs. The staff are so nice and helpful. The downstairs bar is just perfect for going down and having a drink and a chat with either the staff or other tourists like myself. Really good location as well
