Very happy I managed to stay here for at least one night even without a prior reservation - this place is extremely popular, so booking in advance is a must.
But do remember - you pay for the traditional experience, not the comfort. So this means sleeping on the hard floor in a tiny room with paper-thin walls. Perhaps this is exactly why you came here in the first place, but it still needs to be said. :-)
Located in a housing cluster next to the burial ground of ancient Korean kings, it may be a bit difficult to find at first - but they have a huge sign on the wall, so if you pass by it, you will not miss it. It is some 20 minutes walking distance from the bus station.
Simple breakfast is included and you can enjoy it in a sunny inner yard, where the only disturbance to your inner peace is the owner's dog enthusiastically running around.
It is a great starting point for exploring several Gyeongju sights - e.g. the burial ground or Observatory, but you will need to do a bit of walking to get dinner in the city center.
