  • Overall, the hostel was average. We had trouble finding it based on the directions given.The beds were okay, but the whole bed nearly tipped over every time I tried to climb into the top bunk, and creaked and screeched every time I moved. My main complaint from the overall experience was the lack of access to outlets for people using the top bunk. We couldn't really charge any of our devices during our stay in the hostel. Also, don't go to the arcade mentioned in the directions, it's a rip off.

  • Mr Bong is a gentleman and a very, very nice bloke. I hardly ever write reviews, and even more rarely say nice things but I would genuinely recommend this place wholeheartedly. The place is nice , staff are all lovely , good choice

  • Over all, the room was okay. Beds are clean, staff is super friendly. Uncomfortable: Street noise, a bar next to my window and no ventilation in the bathroom. (There was a window, but it was blocked because the shower curtain was mounted against it). I think this might be the reason why hundreds of small flies lived there and in the whole room. My door's security passcode matched the passcode for a public door that everyone gets told about on checkin, this should definately be changed.

  • Security was bad, noise was not controlled, toilets were not clean, did not even get a reply from the hostel when I told them my things were stolen.

  • The Bong House's promotional deals are the best we encountered in our travels across South Korea. It was about 10,000 won per night. The facilities are adequate but are well maintained by the industrious staff. It's location in Hyehwha is very convenient and provides quick access to GS 25 / Lotte / CU marts, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and a subway line
