  1. Meh

    “Went here on a Saturday night in Oct 2016, stayed from 1 am - 4 am. The place looks a bit worn out, half of the showers not working, the baths were out of service. The sauna is decent size.
    It's a pretty large place, and not expensive to get in. Clearly a lot of guys use this place to sleep after a night out, as an alternative to a hotel, while waiting for the public transport to start again.

    The few twink guys that were there were sleeping, the active crowd were mainly daddy types, both local and foreigners from all places. Not my crowd, but if you're into that, this place is prob great, there was a lot of action. When I left a bit of younger crowd came in. They were Asian but not Korean, and I always prefer to eat local when I travel.

    The major dislike is the lighting. The second and third floor are so dark, that you can't see anything. This being not weird for a darkroom, but because a lot of patrons bring their phones or lighters in, which they use as flashlights, they light op the room or shine on where the action is going on. Not only do I find this extremely rude and annoying, it also makes that your eyes have a hard time adjusting to the dark, and basically you see even less, unless you join the smartphone light game. In my opinion the management should ban the phones from the darkrooms, as obviously nobody can check if they just use the light or even make some souvenir snaps while they're at it.

    Overall not a bad place, if this is the crowd you're into, and decent value for money.“

  2. drop in quality

    “I've been there recently again, on a saturday night. The place was quite packed, but not much action going on. Spotted few drunk old men, which is something new, and it didn't make things more pleasant.

    Condoms and lube couldn't be found, so i left soon. Not sure i will be patronizing this place again... compared to few years ago, it got much worse“

    “Definitely not recommended. No good looking locals, only foreigners. Mostly chubs and over 40s patronising this sauna. Went on 3 consecutive nights and couldn't find any good looking guys“

  4. Magnific & Wonderful

    “My first time was unforgettable in Sauna Hyundae.
    The location is not lost. The quality of the place is average.
    The action starts from 12 pm on weekends, nice atmosphere, very nice asian guys.
    The only negative are the lights used in the darkroom. Otherwise all good, it is a recommended place to visit. I hope to return to Korea this year and return to the Sauna Hyundae“

  7. Pictures not reality

    “The pictures on the homepage shows not reality. Pool broken down, sauna a place where the staff dry towels, bed linen dirty, on the beds sleeping staff guys, a place without comfortable feeling.“
