Travel Gay Reviews of GM SaunaLeave Review

  1. D De

    “If you are not big and beefy this place is not for you. The reception worker was blind enough but the guys were nothing to write home about... just average beefy guys. Also coz some of them have big bellies the is kinda difficult to see I wouldn't waste my time unless bears are your into fetish.“

  2. B Buzz

    “Vile is the only word I can think of for this disgusting facility. We stayed for 10 minutes and left. I can be trashy, but this place is a new low. I stepped on a body in one of the rooms. He grunted.“

    Not a sauna

    “Went there on a Saturday night. The good thing is probably the cheap price.
    But this is no sauna, it is more a cruise club. The patrons were bears and cubs, I was the only one who wasn't.
    Do not expect to get any action if you are not GMPD. I was told by the staff working there, this venue caters to GMPD.“

    Be patient

    “Well my visit was kinda short like in mun hwa because I need to catch the last AREX train to Incheon Airport for my very early flight to J..

    I was there around 630PM and there were I think 10 of us.. a pair playing in the mirror maze room, some are sleeping?? Others are on all areas.. I was there trying to get there attention but no one bit..

    I am just about to just rest for sometimes when my 1st guy tap me [ the reviewer goes not to describe, in some detail, what appears to have been a very fulfilling visit ]

    I moved out the place satisfied.. indeed, patience is a virtue sometimes...

    PS.. hope lets be responsible when visiting places like this.. please throw your used balloons and lubs on the trash bin, not just leave their on the beddings..“

    Hot place

    “I was here at a Wednesday afternoon. It was not very crowded, maybe 7 at one time. But guys came and left. The crowd was really good mixed. There was no chicken run and nobody was looking for the nicest prince. They played more less together.
    I don't know why they call themselves sauna, for me it's more a cruise club, but I do not care, the main thing is that I have fun.
    The stuff is very friendly and helpful. It's a good place for foreigners.
    And important too, while I was there, it was very clean.“

    “Don't understand low points, maybe because of ruined dreams? An excellent, foreigner friendly sleeping facility( jjimjilbang).

    After 7pm it costs 14000 and is worth every penny. 3rd floor are lockers, free coffee machine, shower room with basic accessories: toothbrush, skin cream and lotion, hairdryer... things you would never find in European saunas.

    Downstairs, 2nd floor, there is a mirror maze. Upstairs, 4th floor and 5th floor, sleeping rooms with blankets provided. Due to the permanent activity or heavy snoring I found this place very difficult to sleep, but it is not the primary function of this place. After 11pm there were like 15-20 persons, some left soon, new have arrived.“

    So so

    “Went there on a Saturday night. The staff was very friendly and helpful to brief me about the whole place. However, my expectation could not be met. Only around 15 people there, mostly 50+ uncle.“

  9. A Anthony

    “I had some hesitations going there. I am European and some places are for Asians only. Reception is very friendly. I went upstairs and was grabbed by a hunk of a Korean guy followed by others. I was totally fulfilled when I left.“

  10. c curious

    “how much is the entrance fee?
    rate d same for locals and foreigners?“

  11. M Mike

    “can i bring along and wear my indoor slippers in the sauna premises? Thank you“

    Great first visit

    “First visit here in June'16. Place is a little older, it doesn't have a sauna or pool, just a communal shower area. Very friendly staff at the reception, and the place had the best quality a sauna needs, men eager to play.

    Plenty of guys at 11pm on Friday night, all types of shape, sizes and age. Its a place for bears/chubs and people who love them. I was here for 2 1/2hrs and hooked up with 6 guys. Was weak in the knees when I left. Level 3 has a few dark rooms with single mattresses all over the floor, side by side. Level 2 has rooms with long communal bunk beds that guys climb into to. Basement is a maze with a few dark rooms and rubber mats. Thanks guys, I had a great time here.“

  13. J Joe

    “Last night I was go there at 8 45 pm. He got my charge ia after 9 pm entrance fee charge 140000. Before 9 pm is 70000. I don't care more 70000. So i was pay him but i am not happy so i write here. And not so many people there. “

    Under renovation?

    “Been there twice last week but it seems close for renovation. Is it open now?“

    Great first time

    “Firstly, it's not really a sauna since there's no sauna or a bath area; it just has a shower area.
    I happened to visit last night (a Sunday night). The garage layout is a bit strange, but the garage area is how you get in. Once you get to the glass door, there are lockers for shoes. Put your shoes in one of them and bring the key up.
    For me, while it wasn't the hot bear owner; the person who greeted me was nice enough. I told him it was my first time and he was very kind in explaining how things worked. He gave me a robe and a locker key in exchange for the shoe locker key and went to the locker room to change then shower. After the shower, you can grab some packets of condoms and gel and either go up one floor or down one floor.
    The upstairs is just a dark area with lots of bunk beds and also various tiny and narrow rooms. This is where the action happens, at least on a Sunday night. Lots of people just getting it on. I found some beds with just one guy and when I saw one I liked I just lied down next to him and started touching him and it led to much more fun.
    The downstairs is a maze of mirrors, a tv room, and a smoking room. There wasn't much happening there but the guy at the front told me that there were about 100 guys at the facility the night before so i'm planning on checking it out on a weekend, hopefully soon!
    Generally, the area was clean and I even saw the guy cleaning up here and there. Definitely planning on going back for some more fun!“

  17. T TGA Staff

    “Thank's for pointing out our mistake and apologies for the inconvenience. We have updated the listing.“

  18. J Jon
    the address is at "Dongdaemon History & Culture" station

    “The address is at "Dongdaemon History & Culture" station, not "Dongdaemon station" which is a separate area, caused us some wasted time. The sauna is fun and has my type.“

  19. J Joseph

    “I' ve been there couple of years ago and YES the owner is HOT and very polite guy. Just wanna confirm about the crowd on weekdays, its Wednesday and am willing to go there not sure if come back without pleasure and wasting my money. Any suggestions? ?“

  20. D D

The owner is a hot hot HOT muscle bear. Gggrrrrrr. The place is super clean with free condoms, lube, coffee, toiletries etc.“

    TGA Response

    “Hi Michael. Our map location is accurate (we've been there). In addition to our map and location description, if you check our pictures you will see entrance.“

  23. M Michael
    Disappointed non-customer

    “This is another place that I could not find. Street numbers are meaningless in Seoul. I followed the directions on this site but to no avail. How about a sign? How about an address that is meaningful? I walked along and around the street for 1/2 hour looking for 303-1 but did not find it. I found 301 and 305 but 303 was not marked in any way. Neighbours had no idea either.“

  24. W What
    Definitely Open

    “Was there today. Around 10 people total, spread across two main cruising grounds. Place is well kept up. The management doesn't seem to have any policies against foreigners since I met and played with a guy from India.“

  25. D Don

    “Is this place friendly towards Americans? I want to come and play“

  26. C Christoffel
    GM A Great Place

    “I visit the place on a regular basis. It is cleaned twice a day. Great crowd and lots of action. Sometimes the crowd is more Korean on Korean action. It used to be very, very busy but for some reason it has cooled down, but is still a great place to go.“
