My trip to South Korea was good but what made it better was my accommodation. I stayed in a few good hostels in Seoul and one in Busan. I did this in order to see the standard of hostels in the country. Of course, 3 hostels is not enough to guarantee if its high or low. These are my choices.
Lazy Fox Den Hostel, Seoul
Lazy Fox Den Hostel in Seoul was by far my favourite hostel. It was Mapo-gu area, not far from Hapjeong station. The hostel is about 5-7 minute walk from the very popular location Hongdae. It has 3 floors plus a rooftop with good size bedrooms and bathrooms on every floor. The common area is welcoming, and everyone seems to be there once they check in. The staff are friendly, funny and helpful.
Lazy Fox Den Hostel was no ordinary hostel to me. It was a hostel they made me feel at home. We had lots of fun nights out from dinner to partying. The staff were beyond kind and we have create long lasting friends. The people that I met at the hostel we wonderful, caring and adventurous. There is a few vlogs on my channel WORLDOFFAZ to see what we got up to.
Lazy Fox Den Hostel – 10/10
Step Inn, Seoul
Step Inn is based in the popular shopping area of Seoul, Myeongdong. At first I thought it was a lovely hostel and staff are so nice. I got into my room and felt surprised. The rooms were lovely and look more like a hotel than a hostel. Step Inn is great for all those who want to shop for K Beauty, street food and shop till they drop on the high street. In the morning, their is breakfast with the basic needs to start the day.
Step Inn: 8/10
TraveLight Hostel, Busan
Travelight hostel is based in Seomyeon, Busan. The hostel is cosy, quiet and the staff are friendly. In the morning, they make individual breakfast for everyone in the hostel. That is the first time I have seen such services at a hostel. The rooms are clean, the bathrooms are big and the best are comfortable.
Seomyeon is very central in Busan as its where you can go shopping. Its noisy at night but I did not notice it most the time. Under the hostel there are arcades, mixture of shops and around the corner were a few old ladies selling street food. Its definitely a good area to stay in.
Travelight hostel : 8/10
All the hostels I stayed at were booked through Booking.com. I checked through 3 to 4 different websites for the best reviews and price. Bookingcom provided it all for me. I have to say the standards of some of the Hostels in South Korea are really good as well as the price.
