Is located close to important see sightings. Easy access to public transports however location isn't fancy. But hostel itself has Korean style, especially lobby. Security is great! Easy communication with staff. For this location & Koran style the money is worth.

I love staying here!! I been to Korea 3 times, and all 3 times I have stayed at Bangrang Hostel. Why? because it is so central to all the hot spots, and there is a jjimjilbang close to the hostel. 12 mins walk away from Seoul Station, 30 min walk to Ewha district and a metro station outside the hostel, you can't really go wrong!! The only thing I can think of that might be annoying is the shared bathroom and shower in each floor. You may have to wait, but I never really had a problem.


I really enjoyed the Hostel. If i had to make it better, i would suggest some fruits or other options included in the breakfast.... or a coffe. or a videogame in the television room (hehe)! The hot water of the shower had problem on the last day os my staying... The rest, i have nothing to complain about it :-D


nice, clean, quiet hostel. rooms are a little small but the facilities are clean. it's about a 10 minute walk seoul station. staff is helpful and replies to emails promptly. they have free postcards that you can send. overall, a nice and quiet stay :)

Good location for visiting most of the sights in Seoul and situated in a quiet neighborhood. The single private room is rather small (a single mattress an some place to leave your bag), but more than enough to spend the night in. THe staff are also helpful in pointing out the sights and recommending things to see. :)


Helpful staff. Need to tell customer prepare towel in advance.

I like this place. Quiet hostel good subway lines. Not a party hostel.


Great hostel in a really central location. The desk staff were really helpful and gave great advice on places to visit in the city.
