I loved the really homey feel. The decor and \attention from owner made it seem like the most personal hostel experience I had in South Korea. It seem like staying in someone's home. We got stuck on a bus in Chosok traffic on the way to Gyeongju, and arrived very late. Owner was super understanding and pleasant. She also told... More

My friend and I stayed at Homo Nomad for 2 nights during our trip to Gyeongju. It is very nice bed and breakfast place that delivers ultimate value for money. You will be sharing your room with some fellow travelers depending on the room you get. The breakfast was simple and but nice. The guesthouse provides easy access to the... More

Homo Nomad Hostel is located very close to the main tourist attractions (Royal Tombs, Cheongsomdae etc), also the busy city centre or bus/train station can be reached with convenient 15min walking. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, they can help with bus schedules to Namsan, Bulguksa and Yangdong and infos on what to see in the city. The hostel has friendly,... More

If you are thinking about a very good sleep, this is the place! It is so quiet and comfortable. And the house itself is such a Korean traditional style. Kao is definitely not a "what's up./Check it out" kind of active person, she is quiet too, the info provided whenever you ask is always adequate and exact. I like her... More

When we got there the place looked very nice and well designed. We've been charmed by the cool way this place looks like. The owners were not home and Kao left us a nice note. We felt positive about this place. But during evening time when Kao and he husband came back home everything went south for me. Kao is... More

The house has a pretty cool lay-out and with the seating areas downstairs it's easy to chat to other people. We stayed in a double room on the ground floor and in the mixed dorm. Both were fine, nothing fancy. The double room can be a bit noisy as it's right next to the area where people will pass by... More

Nothing much to say about this guesthouse. The guests are very independent and the owners didn't seem to be around a lot. The location is okay, you could find something more centrally located and maybe even a little cheaper. We had a traditional skype private bedroom and thought it was fine. No lost space in the room and not much... More

Homo Nomad has a special laid back feel that some will enjoy and others not. The best thing about it is the location. It is within walking distance of everything you will want to see. The toilets and bath are shared and outside(!) which can be a bit daunting when it is chilly and you need to go at 4... More

We choose 5 nights stay in Gyeongju, its a cozy Town with a lot to experience in it and around. Really nice people, Kao & her husband owned the Guest house, a traditional construction with man & woman dormitory & 4 privates, including 2 in a Korean traditional way. Well! it was my second traditional experience, it's almost like doing... More

The building itself is very homey and clean; the people are okay as well. The rooms are small, and we slept uncomfortably on the floor ("Korean" style). The roof is very low, which makes it feel cramped. We also got a room that faced the outside street and vendors rolled by at 7am, VERY LOUDLY proclaiming their wares so we... More
