Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between sauna and jjimjilbang admission?
Sauna admission is to the “wet” areas: showers, hot & cold tubs, dry & steam saunas. These are separate for male and female.
Jjimjilbang admission includes the above sauna admission plus the red clay & Himalayan salt saunas, ice room, common rest area and use of uniform. These areas are for everyone together.
All body scrubs and massages include jjimjilbang admission.
Do I have to be naked?
In the “wet” areas (showers, hot & cold tubs, dry & steam saunas) we do ask guests to be completely unclothed. Your body must be showered clean before tub use (and before a body scrub or massage) and having a bathing suit on could trap impurities. Similarly you wouldn’t shower at home with anything on. This is customary in Korean culture (as well as in many other countries such as Japan, Finland, Sweden, etc). We have towels you may use while walking around or in the dry & steam saunas.
Many guests have expressed trepidation about being naked in a public bathhouse, but most have found you get used to it fairly quickly.
The common areas (including the red clay & Himalayan salt saunas and the ice room) are clothing mandatory areas (we provide you with a uniform).
Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes, we have gift certificates which can be made out in any amount you choose (minimum $25). These are physical gift certificates (not digital or email). Until we have our web store up and running, these do need to be paid for and picked up in store.
If I buy a 10 pack of sauna or jjimjilbang tickets, can I share them with someone?
Do you have Wi-Fi?
Yes, we do have Wi-Fi… but wouldn’t you rather unplug? (:
Do I need to make reservations?
For sauna or jjimjilbang only admission, no reservations are needed.
For a treatment such as a body scrub, massage or yoni steam, reservations are recommended to secure your desired time slot. Walk ins can be accommodated on a first come first serve basis as long as open time slots are available.
Is there a time limit on the sauna or jjimjilbang admission?
There is no time limit.
