The best decision of my Korea stay was to stay in Namu Guesthouse. What you can expect is a cozy and quiet home, with wonderful hospitality provided by the owner, Yeowon and her staff. They infuse the house with warmness and a lovely energy that is infectious. I think this is what raises Namu above the rest of the accommodations... More

We didn't quite know what to expect when we booked this hostel. Based on the price and reviews, it didn't seem like a bad place. We were completely blown away by the hospitality when we got there. The owner is such a lovely woman, who really cares about her guests and is willing to do anything to help them out... More

Namu Guesthouse was my first love in Seoul. Between exploring the vast and impressive city of Seoul, this guesthouse pushes all the right buttons to get some needed homely comfort. I often found myself relaxing in the living room for much longer times than i planned. If you are travelling for a longer time, or you're just a family person,... More

I have been here twice last year and i am still thinking about how great it was! The first time was a planned visit, so they were expecting us with a warm bed. The second time we had no place to go, rang them up and immediately could we stay there. Amazing service, amazing people.
