Mapo-gu is the district in Seoul with a large concentration of hostels and affordable guesthouses in Seoul. Backpackers who are looking to experience living in dorms, making new friends or most importantly are on a tight budget will do well to start looking for accommodation around this area.

- Some have cheaper room rates as compared to downtown Seoul
- Cheaper foods because of the many universities, catering to students' needs
- Nearer to Incheon Airport: taxi, AREX and airport bus cost less
The price listed below are for rooms with double occupancy, and for a single bed in a dorm. Not all these places have female only dorms so you need to check their sites to confirm.
A lot of thanks to our friends at Cari Forum, who listed most of the places pinned here.
