I had a wonderful stay here, but as many reviewers have pointed it out, this place is not for comfort and it actaully was the most "backpacky" place I've ever stayed. Rooms are quite small and not very clean. BUT!!! There's something inexplicably charming about this place. And I will never be able to forget my early morning walk to... More

I just spent 4 nights at Saranchae - and loved it. The room was small, but you don't need much space with the beautiful courtyard, where most guests relaxed and chatted with each other, or just sat to read or eat. We had a room with the traditional bedding, which was fun and I slept surprisingly well on it. The... More

If you NEED 5* comforts then this may not be the place for you! But for everyone else, you have to go here. It is beautiful. After weeks in Seoul, Tokyo, Busan and many other big cities Gyeongju was a delight, and the tranquility of waking up in Sa Rang Chae, having a coffee in the early morning sunlight, chatting... More

We have been here just for 3 nights, but this guesthout is the best lodging option for travelling in Gyeongju with a company of friends. It's not far from express bus terminal and close to Tumuli park and Anapchi pound. The owners were very friendly, also the price is really cheap. If you want to experience living in a traditional...

My wife and I stayed two nights at Sa Rang Chae, and we enjoyed our experience there. We booked a double room. The bed is a mat on the floor, which is hard but not uncomfortable. Our room was very cozy--just the sleeping space, a coat rack, and a closet. There's also a small exterior area with a sliding door,... More

Sa Rang Chae is placed near the wall that runs around Gyeongju Tumuli Park, the staff is very kind and makes you realy feel at home. The accomodations are traditional hanok rooms placed around a picturesque courtyard. The common room is very lively and full equiped for cooking and waving on the web. Breakfast included. Unfortunately I stayed here only... More

I have visited Sa Rang Chae about 5 times during my stay in Korea. The owners are very friendly and they are travellers themselves. Be aware once a year they take a vacation so book accordingly. Great in all seasons the rooms are authentic Korean, lots of Korean customs can be learned here. Easy access from either the bus or... More

One of the most charming places where we have stayed during our trip through korea. 15 min walk from the express bus station, 5 min taxi ride from the train station. Owner provided a map and detailed route instruction upon booking. We arrived earlier than check in time but we could leave our bags in a separate room. Owners speak... More
