Planning your future Seoul City tour on a budget? Staying at the heart of Seoul is cheaper than you think.
As a budget traveler, I make sure that accommodation will never be on top of my expense list. That’s why I consistently check websites such as agoda, airbnb, booking.com and the like, to score an affordable yet favorable and safe place to stay during my tour. Cleanliness and proximity to tourist attractions are my considerations as well. In my recent South Korea tour, it was my first time to try staying in a guesthouse.
During my stay here, I met international travelers across the globe such as Russians, Belgians, French, Indonesians, Hongkongese, Japanese, and Chinese. Three of which joined me in touring around Seoul!
For about $10-$15 per night, there’s also a complimentary unlimited American breakfast served from 6AM to 10AM. The hostel is maintained by the guesthouse owners on a regular basis. Since we’re talking about South Korea, undoubtedly there is high-speed Wi-Fi too. They also provide small-sized and large-sized lockers for each guest which are totally free as well.
