I spend 4 nights last year in this guesthouse. I don't know who is the staff and who's the guest, because everybody was so friendly! They feel like a big family and as new guest I find they're so helpfull. The location was perfect if you just bring a backpack. Easy to find if you have the map. But if... More

Our winter stay in Korea had been awesome because of a comfortable place to stay (private room) and good people we had met while staying there. Check in was a breeze. It is a cozy place to rest after a biting cold day. Thanks for the wonderful accommodation Big Choi! We'll be back!

Each time, my partner and I have reserved a private room (two single beds). It's sparsely furnished but very functional, with working A/C in the summer and a space heater in the winter. The shared washrooms... More
