I and my parents stayed in Nahbi guesthouse for 2 nights. No doubt, we enjoyed staying here, It is located within 3 mins walk to Jung-ang market, where you can buy local food and things there; around 10-15 mins walk to the Terminal Bus Station and City tour center. You can take bus no. 70, 50 or 51 in front... More

Nahbi is very conveniently located near the express bus station in Gyeongju, and was very easy to find based on the detailed information sent to me by the hostel. I arrived earlier than expected, and found that the owner wasn't there, but he had left his friend waiting for me in case I would come early. I thought that was... More

Good hostel in centre of Gyeongju, helpful maps and they speak english. Underfloor heating made the room nice and warm, and very large bathroom. Towels available on request. Common room very small, but chicken and beer night was organised though we didn't attend. Complimentary breakfast not bad.

A very simple guest. However, the guesthouse is very sensitive to the needs of backpackers. They pay attention to minor details that foreign guests would appreciate- having printed copies of direction, food, bus numbers and other useful information. The staff also speaks fluent English and is helpful. It was winter so nobody hung out in the common area but the... More

My first stay at a hostel/guesthouse and might I say that I was not disappointed. Affordable for the traveler on a budget, the family-sized room that I stayed in came with it's own private bathroom. It was clean and there was enough room for 3 people and luggage. The owner speaks really fluent English and was quite helpful in recommending... More

The guest house located in a very convenient place, easy to take a bus to Bulguksa and to some main attractions just by walk since Gyeongju is a small city. The owner is very friendly. The room is quite clean with a resonable price. I will go back there if i got another chance to go to Gyeongju.^^

I had a great and fun stay at Nahbi's Guest House. The hostel is located in the near of the central bus station (5~10 Min. by feet); where you can also get on a tour bus which goes all around the nicest sightseeing spots. The stuff is really kind, helpful and gives a lot of information about the tourist attractions... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nahbi Guest House offers some of the lowest prices among South Korean guest houses.It is a low-budget hostel, for backpackers who want to meet and interact with other travelers from all over the world.We offer friendly service, a tonne of info about Gyeong-ju, and neighbouring cities and we are conveniently located in the down town area close to many attractions. We are clean and cozy, but definitely not your 5 star hotel. Please keep this in mind, before you select us.If you are looking for luxury, please don't make a reservation. If you're looking for international conversation, hostel facilities, and service with a smile, book away!Hello! My name is T.J. the owner of Nahbi. I opened this guest house so that backpackers could get together with others who travel all over the world freely, like a beautiful butterfly.I hope that you will meet good friends who come from various countries in this guest house and make good memories. Thank you. ... more   less
