Had stayed here with my family last week. i had no major complain. Everything was fine. Location was great. Very near to the metro (hongik university; line 2, exit 4). Most importantly, no climbing uphills. Only 1 train to get to Boa from the airport. We took Arex for 3850 won. Staff was helpful and speak fluent English. Very clean room. good facilities (kitchen. board games, free internet, free international calls, prayer room, launderette, etc). They even have the kiblat signage for the muslims. Cutlery and utensils for the Muslims are separated. Plenty of coffee shops around. There are convenient stores nearby if u wanna buy groceries. The only drawback is the small towel, but that's not a big deal actually..:) Will definitely stay here again if i ever visit Seoul in the future.

Room Tip: For a family of four, sweet room is more spacious.

My friends and I settled for Boa Guesthouse after a long search for accommodation in Seoul, as few guesthouses were able to accommodate to our request of allowing a group of 5, as well as safekeeping our luggages while we were away in Jeju and Busan. Boa accepted our request readily and we are very thankful for that! The price is also very affordable for such a large group of us too.

We stayed in sweet rooms during our 8 nights in Seoul. Though small, it was very well-maintained, clean and cozy for the 5 of us. The room came with free Wifi, a fridge and hairdryer. Laundry facilities are available at the roof garden. Boa, Miri and Pitt are all very warm and forthcoming in helping us with any doubts or requests that we had (within 5-10 mins upon request for help with any room issue we had). We felt a little warm during the first few nights in the sweet room but Boa helped us resolved it quickly.They have helped us with getting to various locations and booking of taxis to Gimpo Airport (as our flight was at 6.20am) as well. Thumbs up to the hospitality of all the staffs! (:

Breakfast is available for free as well. Simple ingredients (bread, cereal and raw eggs) are provided with utensils available to whip up your own breakfast. The kitchen is open 24/7 so everyone is able to cook meals as and when they require. Games and entertainment are also provided in the dining area (mini pool table, DVD player etc.). We had the chance to meet people from all over the world too (from Bangladesh, Austria and many more!).

The location of the guesthouse (in Hongdae) was really great, being in the midst of nightlife and lots of shopping. With convenient stores, small eateries and cafes within close proximity, you will be spoilt for food choices in Hongdae.

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay in Boa Guesthouse. Thank you Boa and the team for making our stay in Seoul so awesome!^^

Staffs are helpful and friendly, always with bright smiles to welcome guests in/out of building. Rooms and the private bathrooms are clean and comfortable. There's a lift in the guesthouse so it's very convienent for guests with much luggages. Overall i'm happy with my 8 nights stay and will consider BoA again for my next trip. ^^

This is a really great purpose built hostel/guesthouse. The rooms are of high quality for the price, with AC, a fridge, real down-bedding and WIFI. They are always clean.

There is also all of the amenities you would expect at a guesthouse: a knowledgeable reception, a kitchen open 24 hours, free breakfast (cook the eggs provided or cereal), a DVD player, free laundry, a roof garden etc. The common area is a good place to meet a diverse bunch of people, as BoA typically hosts Singaporeans, Japanese, Malays, North Americans and Europeans.

The location in Hongdae is great: really close to the nightlife and a short tube ride to the city centre, but you are on a good street for some peace and quiet.

The staff is lovely and work hard to make you welcome. Overall, this place caters perfectly to travelers' needs and is well set up and branded so as to be cosy and appealing. I expect that when backpacking really takes off in Korea, this guesthouse will be leading the pack.

I was the who managed our Big family trip to Korea, they were all asking me if how I find BOA Guesthouse because its so nice. I am very glad that they like it!We didnt had a hard time in looking for the place too,
Even the little boys like BOA, we are in Philippine airport already and they keep on saying BOA!
Ive been to some guesthouse in HK,Taiwan and Singapore, but BOA Guesthouse is the BEST. Everyone are comfortable in their rooms, it is indeed clean and very organized.
One thing that I was disturbed is the old lady who was cleaning the place she's not smiling and keeps on looking on our eggs, I dont know may be she taught that we ate all the eggs, we are 15 people but we only cooked 12 pieces and sometimes 8....(",).Anyway our trip to Korea made more memorable in BOA Guesthouse because besides our outside tour we had a chance to bond during our dinner in their cozy kitchen.Thanks Ms, Boa and to your family for all the help!!!I finally have one sure place to stay in Korea...

Please check your photos on our website. Take care till we meet again. Hope to see you soon again :)
