Our first stop in South Korea. Travelling as a family of four with children aged 8 and 6. Given a family room of bunk beds with private bathroom. We thought it was great!!

Good for budget traveler, but not easy to find cos the house hide inside a small narrow street and surrounded by the old building, if you decision this house, you need to do more map research cos most of the Korean don't know the road and direction and also don't know English.

My friend and I had a private room with a bunkbed, bathroom, TV, converter and some other basics. Breakfast was just toast but it was good and the laundry... More

The subway staff helped to make a call to the guesthouse, and Jeffrey, the guesthouse owner, came all the way to the subway station to bring us there. He even carried my luggage all the way! The guesthouse is conveniently located... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm room, with 3 of the beds made up (4th bed had no pillow or linens). We paid the rate for 3 people, breakfast included. Breakfast consists of toast with jam or peanut... More
