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.

This looks like a fun and affordable way to travel. And I’m sure you get to know some neat people along the way.
It sounds like so much fun to stay in a hostel. I would love to visit South Korea and a hostel would make it economical.
These are cute! What was your favorite part of South Korea?
The next time I am in Seoul, I will need to take a look at Step Inn. Looks like a great place to stay and has more of a hotel feel than a hostel feel.
These look like great accommodation options! Thanks for sharing
These hostels look great! I stayed in a bunch of hostels when I was backpacking in Europe. They’re so great for young travelers.
I would love to travel to Korea! I’ve never been and i feel so bad about it. Next year for sure.
These hostels seem like a good place to stay while in South Korea. Thank you for sharing these amazing pictures and your experience.
Hostels are fun to stay in. I’d love to visit Korea!
These sound like nice hostels. I do stay in hostels a lot when I travel because I love to meet new people. I think I like best the last hostel, because I do like the privacy curtains of the beds.
I love staying in hostels! Thanks for this review of hostels in South Korea, I will keep them in mind. I have yet to visit SK but definitely plan to in the future.
a cost effective way to travel keeping more money in your pockets so you can use to explore the cities and sites
You have good choice, also I can imagine how good to save money while traveling.
There is great selection of places to stay and you can save some money as well. Thank you for the recommendations x
I’ve never stayed at a hostel before but I have always been interested in them and if I would like it or not!
I’ve never stayed at a hostel before. I’ve always been fascinated and curious about it though. Maybe one of these days.
The rooms look simple but functional. The most important thing is that it will be safe.
Looks like a great place to stay. Much more authentic traveling experience than staying in a common hotel.
SOUTH KOREA looks like such a fun place to visit.
I’ve never stayed in a hostel but this one looks cosy and homely.
This looks like such a great place to adventure to!
What wonderful places. I am going to save these recommends for the next time I go to Korea!
I love a good hostel! Looks like you found some really unique ones. Those cubby style bunks rule, and anytime you can get a REAL breakfast is pretty special. You hit the jackpot on all 3!
Oooh nice! I would love to go to Korea, so it’s great to know there are affordable accommodation options!
I love the look of the lazy fox. 🙂
I will definitely be using this site
Lazy Fox perfectly describes what I want from my trip to South Korea.
Sounds cool and affordable, perfect for solo travelers. I wish I did it before 🙂
