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

For those who are adventurous, backpacking/traveling alone or with friends and don't mind sharing a bathroom, I totally recomend this place. It's a traditional Hanok House filled with many interesting things, a dog and guests from all over; the owners are nice, yet not much talkative. The guesthouse is near the train station, and close by many tourist atractions; the... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. My Korean friend made the reservation, but I could have done that myself by email, because the owner speaks English very well. We were expecting an ondol style room, but our 2 persons room had a "normal" bed. Most guests here are backpackers and stay in one of the dorm rooms: mixed or female.... More

I'm doubting on whether to give it average or very good. Homo Nomad is a small guesthouse in Gyeongju, south of the Tumuli park (northern entrance is 700 m away). The website gives good directions on how to get to the guesthouse, so for once I wasn't lost in Korea. The owner/manager speaks good English and is very helpful. Breakfast... More
