Bong Do Lee, would like to welcome you to my guesthouse, Bong House. I have rooms to suit every type of visitor to Korea. From young people, be they friends or couples. To older and more mature folk, and even to families and women seeking a safe and secure environment to take in the sights, sounds and even smells that is Seoul and to a larger extent, South Korea.

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.

As of 2011, I have split my guest rooms into 3 categories.

(Social Accommodation)

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 free wifi access, 3 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen.

(Ensuite Accommodation)

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 7, is within a minute's walking distance from the main house, and can be booked by a lesser number if necessary.

(Fully-furnished Accommodation)

This is a fully furnished room with an accompanying stove in the kitchen, ensuite shower/toilet, wifi access 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.
