We went in this guesthouse as a group of 8 people. Rooms and sheets were really clean and the lounge is really confortable (by the way the music was always nice too!). It also offers what we can call a power breakfast regarding what we usually have when breakfast are included in the price. That is a really good point... More

The best place in South Korea that I stayed at! 3 days of pleasure with the great stuff, and perfectly located just 5 minutes from Haeudae Beach. Free WiFi, free breakfast with bread and juice and the friendliest stuff!

This is definitely the best hostel I've ever stayed in. It was very clean, close to the bus stop, close to the beach, and so affordable. The staff is incredibly helpful. There is also an adorable cat that is always getting loved on. I stayed here for two nights and had a great time. It's about a five minute walk... More
