The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Hongdae
Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s top art school. From its assortment of murals to the occasional amateur street performances, creativity and expression make up the wild and beating heart of vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.

This place is run down, dated, dirty. Calling it a Spa from Hell would be too nice to describe this spa.

Go somewhere else if you value your health and don't want to get sick!

Came here yesterday with a friend. We walked out in 3 mins. This place is beyond filthy. If you want to get sick , skin rashes or who knows what else, be my guest!

Take a short metro ride to Sparex in Dongdaemon. It's not only cheaper but 10x cleaner.

Please take this warning seriously!

Steam bath spa is a specialty in Korea and I really wanted to try. This spa is close to where my hotel is, so I decided to get it a try. Price wise, it is very reasonable but the facilities are very old and run down. The steam room is nothing spectacular. The resting room is dirty and there is this gentleman cleaning and stacking the mattress making a lot of noise without considering people are sleeping and resting. Unless there is no other choice, I will not recommend this place.

This spa is easily accessible for those staying in Hongdae. The staff don't speak a lot of English but they are willing to help. There are lockers outside the spa – ignore these as they aren't used. If you want a scrub, make sure you have KRW.20,000 cash,which you can give to the Ajimmas in the bathes who do the scrubbing. You'll.pay KRW.10,000 at the front desk to use the baths in addition to this.

Your shoes go in a small locker with a key, then you'll also get a larger locker with an RFID lock for your clothes. I got this wrong the first time and put all my things in the one locker. I was eventually corrected by one of the staff. Learn from my errors and have a great time!

This was my first time at a spa, it was near 2am and it was after a night of drinking at a baseball game.

Paid 9000 won to use the sauna area.
Guy inside guided me what to do with the lockers and sent me on my way. I thought it was pretty nice and refreshing. Sauna, bathe, shower was refreshing. Even brushed my teeth and what not.

Contrary to some of the reviews read, I got quite a relative pleasant experience here. Counter service was good. There will be uncle inside the changing room who later guided me as this was my first time here. The only thing I hoped could improved would probably be including some of the English translation.

FYI, I visited close to 12 midnight.

I stayed happy day spa 2 times November 2017.
I paid by credit card and I did not get receipt at 2nd time.
When I came back to my country and check how much I paid,
I paid double price which I paid at first time.
So be careful.
You should always ask to get receipt.

If you are thinking about using this facility, i would like to tell you not to do. Staffs are very unkind(they are only kind for so-called 'health club(fitness club)' members. And electric key does not function properly. If u want feel BAD EXPERIENCE in Korean, then I do not care.

Old and worn out. Basic facilities. Staff in jjimjilbang incredibly rude, shouting at you if you fall asleep. Will never return. Siloam is much nicer in my opinion.

This is my 2nd Hanjeunmuk in this trip. I came in around 5pm. Not many people. The staff was ok with English and staff let me kow the $tix by pointing the pictures. I saw some wastern customers already in the spa. I didn't order any body srub as i just did it days ago. B1-spa and shower, B2 gym, resting area. B3- Hanjeunmuk, and huge rest area.( As i remember) good place to stay and sleep if your flight (arrives/leaves) in the middle of the night. Save $.
