      Great location. Staff was great. Lots of space. ”

      Clean room. Location is close to few attractions in the city. Had no problem with parking, it can be crowded but the staff manages it, just don't forget to give your car keys to staff if you are blocking another car. Kbbq every night, a great way to meet new friends whether Koreans or fellow foreigners. There is a little bar with open mic for the singers out there. Breakfast can be bought for 4k won, but there is also an open kitchen if you want to cook for yourself

It is located near some good restaurants and is about a 25 minute bus ride from the starting point of the most popular route up Hallasan.

The room is clean and comfortable. Good to have curtain and light in bed, and toilet in room. Staffs are willing to solve your problems and suggest you to go somewhere (as we planned to climb Hannasan but it was closed because of snowy weather). 25-30mins walk to Jeongbang waterfall, 새섬 새연교 and 10mins to Olle market(올레시장).

      Comfortable Stay”

      Friendly staff, clean rooms, good location

      I stayed in a double bedroom and I thought there would be no private bathroom in our room but apparently there is and it is very clean and satisfactory. I arrived earlier than the check-in time but only had to wait for a few minutes for them to finish cleaning up the room and I could already enter my room. I also made a booking for my friend who came with me who stayed at a dorm of 4 people, but when I had a look at their room it was just as nice. There were two double-deckers beds attached to the walls, and each bed had a curtain for the customer's privacy. Another feature that I liked was the door lock system which used passcodes instead of keys hence I didn't have to worry about forgetting or losing my keys. The common room for cooking and storing our food is also comfortable and well-equipped with all the cooking instruments. The city is within walking distance and there are tons of diners nearby. The staffs are also helpful and friendly. There was also Bbq held which I couldn't participate due to personal reasons, but it looked nice and lots of people gathered together to have fun. Overall it was a comfortable and great stay worth our money :)
