Mr. Chung-hee's place is very homey, warm and cozy. You wake up and take your breakfast listening to the soothing strains of classical music. Breakfast consists of homemade bread, homemade jams (cinnamon is my favorite), grilled eggs, yogurt, orange juice and coffee/tea. For anyone who has forgotten to bring vitamins for the trip, Mr. Chung-hee has an array of vitamins... More

No regrets selecting this hostel for 3 nights stay. The location is great with easy access for around the island. Many food choices around the hostel and not forgetting the fabulous host. He is such a gem and he made our stay in Jeju even more wonderful. The simple breakfast spread he prepares for all his guests every day is... More

He is very professional: before your stay, you receive informations about jeju island's main attractions and the best way to come to the hostel by e-mail. At the... More

Really impressed with this hostel; was a little worried 50,000won would be too much but it was worth every penny. The location is bang in the middle of the main area of the old city; catch any bus from the airport going to City Hall and it's 2min walk. From there you've got all the bars and restaurants- it's got... More

The double room was comfortable and clean. Very friendly staff and located in a very convenient position, very close to bus stops good for going to the airport and other parts of the island. The area is very crowded with many shops, restaurants and bars open at night. Absolutely recommended.

Excellent hostel with lovely host. Good location 2minutes away from City Hall and lots of good food nearby. If using a Lonely Planet book be warned that it is marked on the map as if it is on a main road but actually is on a side street. A local restaurant called the hostel for us and the hostess came...

This place was awesome for my boyfriend and I. The room was quite nice for South Korean motel standards. Everything worked great in the room, AC was awesome. IPad was a nice touch. It is near a bunch of hofs and bars, so I see what people are saying about noise, but it was fine for me. I'm not a... More

I used tripadvisor many years but this time comments from other reviewers were disappointed. I lived three nights here in a 3/F double room which I totally couldn't sleep for all 3 nights. The double room is situated in 2/F and 3/F, facing the walking street and opposite to a pub just 3 steps walking distance. People screaming, shouting downstairs... More
