    Equus + coronavirus?

    “I try to find it, but nothing visible as on the previous pictures.
    It's may be close due to the protection among hotels and bars.
    Has to be confirmed by other people.“

    • R R

      “Dude, it’s on Covid-19 things! Everyone is avoiding crowded place, and maybe there are some rules about public places during this pandemic era!“

      New place in Nonhyon station

      “New place in Nonhyon station.“

      • D Daniel
        Where is the new location?

        “Can you tell me where the new location is?“

    • K Kein
      New location

      “New location
      서울특별시 서초구 강남대로 545-18“

      • D Delicious
        Foreigners given 3rd degree

        “I tried to check out Equus tonight but they asked a million questions and wanted my ID number etc before considering allowing me in.

        First he asked how old I am when I'm clearly over the legal age then he asked when did I come to Korea and I told him I've been here for 3 years.

        I offered to show my QR that shows that I'm vaccinated but the questions just kept on coming so eventually I just asked for my money back and left.

        If Koreans are scared of corona maybe they shouldn't be going to saunas in the first place.

        If someone is fully vaccinated and wearing a mask then what exactly is the problem? It looks like a thinly veiled attempt to cover xenophobia.

        Oh well, I'll just keep my money.

        I hope the rest of you have better luck.“

        • 거짓말하네

          “There are rules in public places because of the corona virus, haven't you been banned from violating those rules? The staff there don't ask for money, right? I know because I've been there for 5 years, I wrote a lie to get sympathy.“

    “Nice place. I found all the action I was looking for. I want to go back again.“

  3. B Ben
    mixed feelings

    “I had little trouble finding the place, anyhow I found the entrance and went down stairs. Right behind me came this really good-looking Korean guy -older but looked fit and had long hair like a rock star, and I got excited to get it on with him. I got inside and was kind of waiting for him to come in. However they turned him down because his hair was too long, and it wasn't "masculine enough" WTF? All the guys in there were either average built or fit, but they all looked the same - the Korean plastic face-ish - it's boring. I love Korean men, but why do so many guys all look the same? It's like I'm having sex with robots.“

    Qiute nice place.

    “Came here at late-late night on Friday. That was my first experience to visit cruising bar. The entrance was easy - just paid 13000 won. Then put my clothes off and went to take a shower. Then it was a big surprise for me that the most of cabins were occupied by mature men who were asleep! And I could find only the one cabin with the action. Then I heard a voice from another cabin and decided to check it. There were 3 men there. One of them was asleep and two guys were trying to have a fun. I joined them.

    They were Koreans (aged over 35) and I was the only European there. So they immediately began to satisfy me. 5 minutes later one young guy joined us. Finding him I preferred to move to another cabin. We had a great action! He made his best to make me happy. The rest of the public who was not asleep tried to join us but we preferred to stay alone (because I actually prefer younger).

    After that I tried to get another action with another guy. Came back to the first cabin I saw a couple playing, but found just only a single person who let me know that I shouldn't even try to do something with him. So I suggested that would be enough for me and left that place. I met a young handsome Spanish guy at the exit who just came but didn't try to do something with him. Just only wishing him good luck.

    So at the weekend it's a quite good place to have a sex, but you should come here not too late if you don't want to see sleeping people.
    I was lucky and had a nice adventure.
    Wish you the same!

    And a few words about the place. It is really too dark there. I prefer to see my partner but it was difficult. And I saw mobile phone flashes. That means that someone made a picture of me and my partner - he couldn't see our faces but that really was not a good surprise.“

  5. R Roy
    Equus sauna overall

    “I understand why phone flashlights are forbidden there, its annoying when people just shone the light on us but its too dark and sometimes I left my belongings and I just have to use my phone's light or I cant find my stuff. So I think it would be better to have more light or at least mini lights that we can turn on or off manually in each room to make it easier to look for condoms, lube, underwear and etc.

    Otherwise the staff are friendly, they always clean up the rooms after being used and prices are same for locals and non locals (13,000 won)

    That place will only be crowded during the weekends and usually after 11PM. There are usually likr 4 to 5 people if you come earlier than that.

    P.s.Sorry for using the phone lights“

  6. M Michel
    Cozy place

    “Yes it's true, it's a small location. But much more important are the guys in there. At my visit it was not so crowded, but still I had a lot of fun. The stuff is very unobtrusive. Prices for foreigners are still the same as for locals.“

  7. t total
    Just as other said

    “Visited today at 10pm, just follow the indications written, there is the sign. Equus just before gs25 store.

    So foreigners pay the same price 13000 after 6pm. It has one big room divided to multiple cubicles. During my visit there were 6 guys only. So i played a bit with one tasty chubby guy and left. There are showers, toilet and 1 private room without a lock:) Maybe there will be more guys after midnight or during weekend. Please send ur comments“

  8. T To
    Not so foreigners friendly

    “Be informed that since September 1 all foreigners pay double than locals!“

  9. H Huan
    So far so good

    “I was here in Juseok holiday. At 10pm, it had just 5 guys, but more than 20 men till the midnight. I love this place and will come back soon, for sure.“

  10. D Duy
    Few people

    “Just only 5-6 people at 10 - 11pm at Wednesday. Dont know is it better at weekend or not but I dont think this place worth a visit.“

  11. n nate
    Please make a general cleaning for a day

    “Is quite place for cruising.. but its should be clean and sanitized.. I've been there twice and I had a terrible skin rashes twice. Enjoyment is good but we have to prioritize health and safety.“

  12. D Dan

    “Equus is very small. No cruising area, no private cabins, no people.“
