Bangrang Hostel Seoul Reviews
Nice atmosphere and value for money Jul 05, 2011
This hostel or guest house has a very good location in central Seoul, at an intersection of subway lines 2 and 5. In couple of metro stops away are many sights, including palaces of Deoksugung and Gyeongbokgung and shopping areas like Namdaemun market and Myeng-Dong.
Hostel offers both dorms and double and single rooms. During my 3 week trip I slept in a mixed dorm for 6 persons and 4 persons, 4 persons dorm for females and in a single room. The matresses are korean style which means they're kind of hard. I like it but this might be problem for some.
Service at the place is very good. Places owner, Seung, a guy in his thirties speaks fluent english and is very helpful person. He willingly tells about sights in Seoul and has good tips for shopping as well.
The bathrooms are not excactly top notch but there is at least enough clean water for everyone to go around. I did witness some crickets and a cockroach at few instances so if you have a serious phobia of creepy crawlies maybe Hilton is your choice. But otherwise I really don't have any complaining about the hostel. It's good value for money and the 24 hour lounge is very cozy and they have free internet and wifi. There is no curfew and all and all the atmosphere is verry chilled.
