“Cosy. Warmer not good. Not easy to find at first.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Stayed at this guesthouse on 8th Feb 2014. Got to know this guesthouse while google-ing for guesthouse in Seogwipo. Our choice of guesthouse was not available and so I booked this.

Response: Prompt. Might be due to the language barrier, most replies are just 1 liner and sometimes does not answer fully to my queries. As there isn't any reviews nor agoda for this guesthouse, it is difficult for me to ascertain whether to book this guesthouse. Booked via booking.com instead. However, saw a blog entry on how good the guesthouse is and I booked it since I cannot find another better choice at Seogwipo during point of reservation. Most others were either full or too pricey. I asked several questions via email but most replies are quite short and not that helpful.

Location:
There is a map given on their website and several pictures to indicate. However, it is quite misleading and resulted in us making a wrong turn upon seeing GS25 (after alighting from the correct bus-stop). Thus, we could not find the place and had to take a taxi instead. However, once we reached the guesthouse and managed to know the surroundings, the place is actually very easy to locate from the airport bus bus-stop as long as you do not make the wrong turn. If you alight from the bus stop and going to the guesthouse, make sure you saw a long slightly steep slope up after walking for about 2-3 mins. Else, most likely you have made the same wrong turn as us.

The location is near to a food street (as shown in my picture). Thus, finding food for meals are easy. No worries about that. Anyway,the guesthouse does not provide breakfast.

It is just located about 5-10 mins walk from the airport bus bus-stop.

Room:
Room size is average. You will still have sufficient space after putting your luggage. As we went during winter, floor warmer is very important and essential. However, for this guesthouse, the warmer is not evenly spread out. Insulation of the room is also very bad. You will feel quite cold if you are not under the blanket and also when you are out from shower.

In real fact, most of the floor area feels cold despite having a floor warmer. We increased it to a higher temperature but to no avail.

The room is very basic. A bed, a TV, two cups, a comb, refrigerator and clothes hanger. (See pictures for these)

Service:
The staffs speak very very minimal English. We use gestures most of the time. They are quite friendly though and assisted us to find a restaurant nearby that we wanted to go. Other than that, it is very difficult to communicate with them.

Overall: I will not choose to stay here again unless no other guesthouse available. However, this is very cheap. We booked 1 night for 30000 won.

*As this guesthouse has no review yet, I cannot add pictures. Will add pictures subsequently if possible.

Stayed February 2014, traveled with friends
