Budget Accomodations in South Korea
19th June, 2010
I apologize if I am posting this in the wrong spot, as I could not find where to ask questions about Korea. I am going to SE Asia for 3.5 months, and will be spending the first 2 weeks in South Korea. I am concerned about the prices there compared to the rest of my trip.
Has anyone stayed in a cheap place that they'd recommend in South Korea?

Where will you be in Korea?
In most cities, the most "budget" you will find is the "love motels" at around 40-50,000won (45-50$) per night. If you are traveling in a group, hotels with ondol (where you sleep on a floor mat) is the cheapest way to go because you can cram more people into one room.
In Seoul, budget accommodation is harder to find, but still there. When I am in Seoul, I stay at Sae rim Hotel. It's 50$ per night and in a terrific location. Depending on the room you get, some are really clean and nice, while others are a little grungy. There are other hostels and cheap hotels around as well. In Seoul, love motels tend to be pricier.
Another option is the jimjilbang, which is a bath house. At some of them, you can soak in the bath and then you are given a robe and a blanket and can stay overnight. You have to look around more to find these, but it's a cheap option as well.
