  1. Never try.

    “Facility run-down, no crowd. Waste of money. Staff friendly as they probably thought I was Korean.“

  2. Deserted mansion like

    “Came here Thursday 30 Aug 2018 8-11. Quite a test of hopeful thinking as you enter to explore this sprawling estate of beds but wonder where the people are. You sit there with five other guys ( 2 asleep) thinking that any moment a flood of guys would enter... But it never does. I heard that it's only really busy Friday and Saturday nights and if tonight was indicative, then that's probably true.“

  4. First Timer

    “So after reading about the different Saunas I decided to give it a try. Since I was staying the night in Itaewon Hyundae Sauna was my go-to place. I actually didn't know what to expect but I got in and paid 15000 won for night entry, received 2 towels and a pair of shorts. Went to have a shower first and was slightly disappointed that the baths had no water in them.

    Anyways I went upstairs after the shower, the darkroom is really dark and I didn't have my phone so I got around blindly. Guys were mostly sleeping so I went to chill in the video room. I was playing solo watching the video, one guy sat on the couch with me but pulled out his phone and started playing games. A few guys were walking in and out but nobody was playing. After about 45mins of playing with myself I decided to call it a night. As I was about to walk downstairs one guy stopped me and initiated so we got on the nearest bed.

    A few people walked past shining their lights (which I didn't mind) but it seemed to freak this guy out. Eventually another 2 guys started playing and he got up and walked. So I went down to the smoking room and another yummy local was sitting on the couch and greeted me. Needless to say we were both found wanting and headed upstairs to play.

    I guess if I'm around again I would give it another go. Not bad for a Monday night.“

  5. Worst experience I've ever had!

    “It looks like the beds have never been cleaned. There is people sleeping in the rooms. Way too dark upstairs. Filthy. Avoid this place and just use grinder in Korea. Saunas in Korea are not normal like the western world.“

  6. Cold sauna

    “This was the worst experience ever. Not only were they using the sauna to heat up their room. They were rude when I asked if they could crank up the heater.

    I was going to the second floor to let it get warm (they also were hanging the wet shorts they had just washed. I guess it’s also a drying room) - the owner came right after me to open the door and I politely asked if they could leave it closed cuz I wanted to come back when it was hot. They said I was cold to take a shower. I said I came for the sauna not a shower. They started yelling and cursing me in both English and Korean. And then the owner yelled at me “get out!” I said okay but I want my money back. The guy who works there for heated and all up in my face, continuing to curse me out in Korean. I said why don’t you say that in English (he had also yelled at me in English) - they said I was rude - I said I haven’t raised my voice and I just want the sauna to be hot (it was 25c. Not even luke warm) - they continued to talk about me in Korean as I changed. Literally pushing me out the place. I said don’t touch me.

  7. Biggst sauna in Seoul

    “I'm here today, the place is quite large it was fun but many people using their flash light when others are having their fun.

    I'm play with a white guy and many people walked past and flash on us. This is quite annoying! Then this guy straight walk away. I hope that the authority can ban the use of phone in here.“

  8. More like a sleeping facility

    “I visited it at 6pm. Well...there were 2 guys:) As others said, pools are empty, but at least showers were working.

    Upstairs is pitch dark and there are beds for sleeping. There is a dry sauna, more like a warm room, rather than sauna. I don't know if its populated after midnight.“

  9. 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.“

  10. 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“

  11. Ray

    “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“

  12. 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“

  15. 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.“
