This place is just amazing. Super friendly, and very friendly owner. A price that cannot be beat. I would recommend this place to anyone.

As soon as we walked into Nahbi Guest House, we were immediately greeted by the sweetest man ever! Right away we felt at ease and welcomed by his staff, as well as other guests.
Not only is the price extremely right (the cheapest we had found in the area), but you also get free breakfast. The roof top party was a treat too. There, we were introduced to many Korean foods, drinks, and traditions.
I MORE than highly recommend staying at this hostel. We left feeling happy and completely satisfied with our last minute decision to stay at Nahbi!
T.J. is a fabulous host, and we will be telling our fellow teachers to make a trip out to see him, for sure!

My friends and I are exchange students in Seoul and we wanted to get out of the city and see more of what the country has to offer. Gyeongju has a lot to offer. We were expecting it to be tough to find a place to stay, but it was no problem. The tourist information center gave us the info for Nahbi and made a reservation for us. This hostel is located quite close to the express bus station in Gyeongju (a 7 minute walk, according to the pamphlet). When we got there, the owner was waiting out front. He showed us to our rooms, which were extremely clean and bright. The owner has really thought of everything. Bus schedules and tourist attractions are posted on the walls. There is free wi-fi and internet access. There is also free breakfast (eggs and toast). He gave us free dinner too, which was a delicious homemade ddeokmanduguk and there was plenty of soju and makgeolli at no charge. We had a little dinner party on the roof.
The beds are really comfortable and they give you a mattress pad, sheet, and duvet. Everything is super clean too. The only downside is the bathroom, which is clean, but old, and much better than showers and toilets i have seen at most other hostels.
Check out is at 11, but you can leave your stuff in a locked storage room after checking out so you can visit all the tourist spots. The hostel is centrally located within walking distance of many of the tourist sights and on Sunday's there's a market right out front. For 15,000 won per person, the whole stay was an unbelievable value. I would definitely stay again.
