I recently had the pleasure of staying a few nights at Bounce Guesthouse in Seoul, South Korea with two lovely hosts: Anson and Scarlett. This homely pad is a great place for young people looking for a friendly place to socialise and meet like-minded travellers.

This place is near other hostels. I've tried 2 others in the area, and this place is definitely one of the better places. This not a party hostel, but one can have a good time at nearby bars and clubs depending on the other guests.


I can't say enough positive words about Bounce Guesthouse. The hostel is clean, secure, and in a great location. The staff made me feel like family. Don't hesitate in choosing to stay here.

My favorite place to stay in Seoul. They helped me when I needneeded it most! Good people and a great time!


Everything was clean and it was close to all the happening places! The beds were comfortable had a curtain for privacy. The staff were very friendly and helpful with booking activities. I really enjoyed the CooKorean class they had the pamphlet for and I would definitely recommend this hostel and the cooking class.


This was our first time in Seoul. We felt right at home in this guesthouse. Friendly owners, they were really helpfull. Even booked a DMZ tour in advance at our request! The place looked really cute and it was cleaned every day. The only thing that I want to point out is we thought we booked a private room ensuite. But we had to share the bathroom with the friendship room. It was a bit unclear on the website, so maybe that can be changed? But we really liked the stay and loved the area!


A very homely and cozy hostel close to Hongdae, the busy university district of Seoul, full of street performances, all the bars and cafés you could ever dream of, and, of course, tonnes of chic clothing boutiques. The hostel is cleverly located in a very quiet neighbourhood despite being such a short walk from all of the tempting madness of Hongdae. The staff are very friendly, and the two owners, who are there at some point every day are very welcoming and can also collectively speak 3 languag


A great hostel! Very clean with a very nice staff. Only a ten minute walk to the downtown area!


Bounce Guesthouse was really great and spacious. Each floor has its own common area with a small kitchen and living room which gave us extra room to hangout. It's just a few minute walk to the subway station and to downtown Hongdae


Fantastic hosts who were warm and welcoming, and no surprise the staff were too. Well-located in Hongdae and 30/50 mins to Gimpo and Incheon on AREX. Comfortable bed and duvet, with privacy curtains, personal lamp and wall plugs, and one towel to use. Very clean and cosy with a common area on 2 levels, and since the hosts stay in the guesthouse, it's decorated and furnished as if it were their home. Would 100% return to this home away from home and highly recommend you to check it out too.




Very clean and quality hostel – the owners' former Singapore Airlines experience definitely shows through in the attention to detail put into the place. A bit of a walk on the far side of Hongdae, the sleepier side, but only takes about 10 minutes to get to the happening part of the district. Would recommend.
