Bong House (Bed & Beer)
Bong House is situated near the Hyehwa metro station on the subway line 4, a mere 5 minutes walk. It's also situated right next to Sungkyunkwan University and thus it boasts a very lively student atmosphere with shops, convenience stores, restaurants and small eateries. Not to mention easy access to the rest of Seoul.
I also have a bar, Bong Bar, just next to my main Bong house. Where you can play darts or free games of pool, and drink a bottle of beer every night of your stay for free. My old motto was;
B&B (Bed & Beer) : Free pool games and one complimentary beverage for each night you stay!
As of 2011, I have split my guest rooms into 3 categories.
The main Bong House. With many rooms offering 2 to 8 bed style rooms, and some single rooms. Comes with 2 common rooms, where you can hang out and meet people from all over the world. Also with a computer and free wifi access, free use of the washing machine, 3 bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen.
Nicknamed by our guests, as the 'mountain view' apartment. It boasts a rooftop terrace, with views of the mountain range behind Sungkyunkwan university that's just across from the apartment building. It comes with an ensuite shower/toilet. Wifi access, and even a fridge. It houses up to a maximum of 4, is within a minute's walking distance from the main house, and can be booked by a lesser number if necessary.
This is a fully furnished room with an accompanying stove in the kitchen, ensuite shower/toilet, wifi access, computer and even a washing machine. Up to a maximum of 8 can occupy the room, and depending on the season, can be booked by smaller groups(even couples) if the need arises. It's also located a mere minute on foot away from the main house.
