We stayed here for two nights. we slept in the four dorm since we were four. price is fair but cause we didnt pay for next day even if we told them we will they gave the room to another ppl and we had to change the next day. the people are nice tho. sure helpful to show us where to go and how to go. the place is a bit quite tho esp at night if u want to go out for drinks.

It's rare to find Korean who speaks English, so a blessing to find all staff in this hostel speaks fluent English. They are also very helpful and friendly - especially the red-haired male (sorry, we didn't got a chance to ask your name...) who gave thorough info on spots to visit in Jeju and helped us to translate to our taxi driver. Room is quite clean. Not spacious but quite comfortable. Wifi worked fast. Don't worry if carrying luggages as they have an elevator. Location is only 15 mins from airport and just within a walking distance to the traditional market and fashion shops in Blackpork street. No need to worry about food but some are a bit pricey. Only a minor downside, they don't provide towels. Other than that, definitely a recommended place for budget travelers!

I stayed at the hostel in mid-June and was planning for 1 night initially but it was too good it became 4 nights! Hostel Korea Jeju (I thought the HK stands for Hong Kong at first but ITS NOT haha!) is a fantastic place to crash in Jeju! The dorm I stayed in was perfect, clean and well-maintained. They had a huge pantry which could hold a party if they wanted to and the common area was my favourite spot as the ambience was GREAT as there was always good music being played! Kudos to the manager for that! & the staff were super knowledgeable and helpful in giving you information you required to explore Jeju plus they were also a friendly bunch making my stay very pleasant! I also like how the place is well maintained in terms of cleanliness and very well organised with information signs on how and when to use something. Overall, HK Jeju II is AWESOME and I highly recommend it to anyone swinging by Jeju!

Pros:
- Convenient location: it is located right next to Black Pork Street and major shopping alleys. Many restaurants nearby.
- Bed sheets looked clean
- Staff speaks good English.
- TV and mini-fridge is provided for private double bed room. Amazing for a hostel!

Cons:
- Renovation needed definitely. I stayed in an en-suite room and everything (bathroom, room door, windows, beds etc) shows signs of wear and tears. The bathroom door was stuck and couldn't be closed properly.
- The windows and sliding doors inside the rooms were very dusty.
- The front desk closes at 10pm. You couldn't find any staff for help after that.

At similar price, you could have found other newer and cleaner hostels within Jeju-City Center. Would recommend if you have very tight budget.
