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.

Stayed for few days here in July 2013. We reached early and Yeowon was expecting us to reach at night. It was really great to see a warm welcome from Yeowon after a tiring journey from Busan.

Stayed at Namu in August 2013 (once in room C with my partner, and once in the dorm room alone), it felt like my home away from home. The ladies are so nice, and always cook surprise breakfasts for everyone. The place is clean, and 'homely' - in fact I honestly feel like its my Seoul home. I will visit... More

I stayed at Namu Guesthouse for 3 weeks during October 2013. I travelled to S.Korea alone and decided to take out a 3-person room just for myself, as it was my first time travelling and I was sceptical about sharing with people I didn't know. I LOVED my time at Namu, and always felt like it was my "home" when... More

So, bottom line is, it's just damn comfortable! The staff is super nice and accommodating and make you feel welcome. The rooms are clean, neat and has everything you need.
