Korean vlogger Jina Kim stayed at the cheapest Airbnb in Seoul so you don’t have to! (Thank you, Jina!)
Jina decided against doing a room share as she really values her privacy. Also for privacy’s sake, she hasn’t shared the exact address of the Airbnb. She was pleased with the security of the building considering that she needed to enter two doors before accessing her room.
Despite a fairly positive first impression, she noticed a strange smell in her Airbnb almost immediately.
In spite of the odd smell, she continued her tour of the room.
After looking around a bit more, she was ultimately pretty happy with the place, noting how clean everything, including the kitchen, was.
Jina shows a bit more of the apartment and we can see the bed is right next to the kitchen.
Before lying down, Jina sniffed the bedding to make sure it was okay.
Jina explained that the type of apartment she rented from Airbnb is called a “one room”, and that in Seoul, there are “so many one rooms.” She did note that the location of the apartment was convenient because there were so many restaurants nearby, including a tteokbokki restaurant she filmed on her way the Airbnb!
With that being said, she decided to go out to have a meal, however, before leaving the house… She realizes where the smell from earlier was coming from!
The smell was coming from a drain in the floor in the bathroom!
To find out more about the Airbnb, you’ll have to watch Jina’s whole video below, however, do you think you could tolerate staying at a cheap rental if it meant living with a strange smell for the duration of your stay?
