I was sceptical when i first saw the review on the place, however i still decided to stay in this place. I did not regret staying in GuestHouse Korea. I met many wonderful people there and there are parties organised from time to time. The staff there are really friendly and helpful too. Definitely recommend the place to others.

I've been to Seoul twice, and I decided to come back to Guesthouse Korea the second time, simply because I felt so at home. Both times I travelled with friends, and I experienced a really warm welcome from both staff and other travellers. My friend and I stayed in a double room. For two girls with big suitcases, I'd say... More

This was the most affordable guesthouse i could find in Seoul. And the location was so convenient - near many historical sites, cultural areas, eating places and accessible to 5 subway lines. But the room was too small and messy. The lounge and rooms were not sound-proof, so it can be annoying at times. The heating facility did not work... More

I never expected much from a budget hostel like this but I really was satisfied with it. I thought it was a bad choice based on other reviews but luckily when we stayed, I was satisfied of what I got from the price that I paid. The location was good, it was just across Changeokdung and near Gyeongbokgung Palace so... More

I stayed in this guesthouse for 5 days. The cheap single room was quite small but at least the bathroom was ensuite. The location is good because it is near two palaces, Insadong area, Jongmyo shrine, and Jongno 3 station which serves 3 subway lines. There are also numerous convenience stores nearby. My room was at the ground floor and... More
