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

I took my parents to Gyeongju for the weekend and we stayed in this small friendly guesthouse. My parents had a small room with bedding laid out on the floor in the traditional Korean style. I stayed in a bunk in the women's dorm room with just one other guest. The house itself was really cool, an old building with... More

The guesthouse is located in the older and quieter part of Gyeongju, it has a charming quaint atmosphere and the owners were rather friendly. Located just a short walk away are the Daereaung Tombs as well as the Noseodong tombs. The Cheomseongdae is not too far away too. Transport wise, there are bus stops nearby with buses that goes to...

We stayed here in a family room. It is an exquisite interior with wood panels and sliding doors and paper windows (inner) and a marvellous staircase. The outer courtyard even has a resident, very friendly dog, who appears to understand all languages from the comfort of his kennel. The plants are gorgeous (fig tree) and create lovely shade. The location... More
