I'm a 25 year old American woman telling you that those old reviews are really poor. All the staff is so kind, the entire place is very clean and welcoming. There are pools ranging from 18°C ~ 40°C with lockers for your belongings, showers with shampoo and conditioner provided, towels and robes provided. There are multiple saunas; dry, wet, hot rocks, oven-style. Massage chairs, massage jets in the baths, sea salt scrubs for purchase, full body oil massage for purchase, salt water bath, cold bath, green tea bath. There's an outdoor bath and a rooftop patio with many beautiful plants for relaxing. There's snacks for purchase in the main floor and an actual restaurant on the top floor. Everything you purchase using a bracelet that is also how you access your locker (which you can access any time easily throughout your stay) then pay for anything additional you purchased on the bracelet when you check out. It's affordable for all of these amazing amenities. And when you get tired there are large rooms with "pillows" for relaxing in and even beds in the lower level if you decide to stay the night. Open 24 hours. There are also lotions and hairdryers provided. This is my new favorite place ~

I went here on a whim. I did the 120,000 massage package deal. From what I remember, it includes body scrubbing, oil massage, cucumber facial, back and front massage, and some kind of looking like mud body and facial massage. First, when I got there---I was greeted by the front desk lady. She told me that the daily price in the evening is 16KW (I was there around 4:30 pm). She gave me a shoe locker, and then you pay and go down to B2--That is the main sauna, and it's also where you get your message too----Also where you can store your big clothes and personal items. Per the front lady's directions---You must do a 30 minutes sauna cleanse before you go get the body massage---So I did that, and then after 30 minutes, I went to where the massage place was----And started my massage time--about 1 hour. Make sure to look for the women aka ahjuuma in red bra and undie----or just in bra and undie. Overall, it was a pleasant experience----And I feel relaxed and clean!!!

B1---Is the front desk and entrance
B2- The main sauna
3rd floor- You can wear your robe and have some food/snack here. Typical Korean food like----sofu stew, chicken feet, juice, etc. Pretty decent price too.

Be careful of your personal items-----There are reviews of people stealing!!! Make sure your locker is locked.

Hope you have fun!

Don’t waste your time. I went through the door and was immediately turned away. The woman at the counter just shouted “No! Corona!” while three other (Korean) women walked past me. I stood there for a moment surprised and the two woman at the counter just laughed at me. Glad to see they can use corona to justify their racist BS.

If you’re not korean don't bother come here. Please do not waste your time and energy to visit this rude, racist, not welcoming, rude-face-front-desk short hair lady. Sincere advice to my fellow Malaysians and all tourist wants to experience jimjilbang, please please please do not come here. They also not allow luggage storage. We actually don’t mind if they dont allow us to enter, but their service is so frustrating, disappointing, and irrittating. I never write a review before this but this is so disappointing which triggers me to put this in trip advisor. Not recommended.

If you come for relaxing, feel the jjimjilbang experience, really not recommended! Dont waste ur time coming here. Lady with short hair (maybe manager or owner) not welcoming people nicely and rude to us. Theres a lot more sauna to be reconsider than this which better service and worth the money.

Within less than 1 hour my belongings & cash were stolen & the rude staff did not care at all and did nothing to help or compensate. Still made us pay. As the only foreigner there it did not make me feel safe especially as the staff's response was that it happens all the time, it's very normal.

If you are comfortable being naked around your friends this is a great spot. We soaked for about a half hour before getting a full body scrub, Korean style. Most everyone seemed like locals and no one was self conscious. Robes are provided for moving around the spa. Loved the red clay room and the relaxing rooms after our treatment. There are TVs in which were a little annoying. No one seemed to be watching so I got up and turned the volume down so I could take a little nap which was lovely. I wish there were more of these in the states.

I went here for a relaxation day for my birthday :)!!! It was nice. This is an only woman spa, so that was nice. They have two hot sauna pools, two pool (one cold and one cool/warm), and two sauna rooms for relaxation. A massage water chair area. They also have spa treatments, like massage, but I only did the sauna experience. Overall, it was a pleasant. Just do your thing, and feel comfortable.

After a red eye to Seoul and realizing this place was walking distance from my hotel, I was in. I have been to other Korean style spas so I had a base understanding of how to get by. This spa was nice and traditional. The staff was very nice. Not a lot of English but enough to get by and not a lot needed. They have a spa menu in English and the restaurant menu is also in English. Two most important things. Most signs are also in English.

I had a scrub and hip bath (v-steam) both were great! Highly recommend both. The scrub is serious exfoliating so be prepared.

I wish I had time to try other treatments (like massage, some sort of mud bath...) as they looked really interesting and popular (lots of Korean ladies were booking these treatments).

I felt welcomed and treated kindly by other spa goers. I spent 4 hours there and then slept like a baby! :-)

I arrived, paid 14,000 won for the bathhouse with cash and received my locker key. After being in one of the pools for less than 10 minutes a worker started speaking to me in Korean and ask me to get out of the pool and go upstairs to the front desk. This was very embarrassing and in front of several people. I walked upstairs in my robe, the front desk woman kept telling me I needed to pay in advance (with a cellphone translator app), I kept saying in english that I paid her a short time ago. She just kept saying sorry and that she needed money. I told her that I would go downstairs get my clothes and leave because I already paid. When I returned upstairs I asked for my money back and they gave it to me with no problem. As a Black woman who's lived in Korea for over a year, It didn't feel coincidental that I was given refund and asked to leave but not welcomed to stay.
