Saunas and Jjimjilbang for Men

      Some of the businesses listed here are noted to be traditional Korean jjimjilbang, or overnight sleeping facilities. Jjimjilbang may not have a sauna, or even hot water facilities, although they may function as de facto cruising spaces for Korean gays. Facilities at Jjimjilbang tend to be modest compared to more sophisticated urban saunas and bathhouses.

    • Hamilton Hotel Sauna UTOPIA VERIFIED DEC 2023
        179 Itaewon-ro, Utopia Map

        Not gay, so be discreet or go to one of Seoul's other all-gay saunas. It does pick up some gay customers due to its proximity to the Itawon gay scene, but management discourages open activity. The vast majority of guys in the 2/F sleeping area use only a towel for cover, if anything at all. There is some action, especially Fri and Sat nights and Sun afternoon. The crowd is on the younger side, some very cute, Koreans and foreigners. Closes at 10pm.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "I went to He's last Sat night. The crowd there is normally hot guys in their 20s-30s, and some 40-somethings, too. On this evening there was a group of ajoshi who were touchy and pushy and wouldn't leave others alone despite being told "I'm not interested." I like He's and wish all customers would behave respectfully. It is never appropriate for anyone to pester or force themselves on others." -- Waygukin, Apr 24, 2023

    • Mun Hwa UTOPIA VERIFIED SEP 2023
        Utopia Map

        At the Jongno-3-Ga station (Line #1) take Exit 1 and walk straight ahead (west). Turn right into the alley just before McDonald's and follow it north. After a dozen or so steps you'll come to a junction and the alley jogs slightly to the left here - continue forward (north). Near the end of the alley, on your left just before T-Motel, there's a sign that says "sauna" in English. Smokey and dingey, but still fun. Three bathing pools: cold, hot and hotter; also a steam room and a dry room. Downstairs and upstairs resting areas. Active, especially on weekends. The guys don't wear towels, but they usually carry one to make a token pretense to modesty. G/F has lockers and bathing area with standing/sitting showers, a couple of baths, and a steam room. The upstairs sleeping/play area is nearly always active, divided into 5 or 6 large rooms, all brightly lit, and some people just going at it in full view. The crowd is mature Koreans, daddies, and ajoshis (uncles). Open 24 hours daily and can draw a lunchtime crowd. Bring your own safety supplies.

        "Mun Hwa is a place where seniors go, mostly over 60s, and many of them are not gay." -- Kidon, Sep 22, 2023
