So I asked a friend to help my find a cheap accommodation in Seoul, South Korea during winter end of the year. I don’t really need a posh hotel. I just need a place to lay my head at night coz I know I’ll be out most of the day, touring South Korea again (God-willing).
Today, my friend got back to me with a list of guest houses that are affordable and near shopping centers – coz it’s all about it, a shopping trip. Not exactly, per se… It’s just that I have a couple of days to do it.
So here’s the list of cheap accommodation in South Korea:

2. Namu Guest House
Located in the quiet place surrounding residential area is this cheap guest house with rates from as low as 22,000KRW to 110,000 KRW.
