This hostel is my go-to accommodation every time I'm in Seoul (stayed 5 times since 2012). I first stayed here in April 2012 for 3 nights and I vividly remember falling in love with the traditional korean wooden (exterior) door welcoming you to its premises. Have stayed in a 4 and 6-bed mixed dorm, double private room as well as...

My first stay in Seoul. The owner was very helpful, friendly and patient. The common room was our chillax place after a whole day of discovering Seoul. I especially love their kitchen with cooking utensils and stocked fridge. We made our breakfast before head out. It's convenient. However, the condition of bedroom can be improved.

Although we arrived at 5AM at the hostel, the staff waited there for us. they are friendly and helpful. they even recommended nice tourist destination and places for us to eat. the place is quiet and very accessible to subway. We plan to go back there in winter and we will definitely stay at Bangrang Hostel.
