    Would definitely come back”
    Gemma, our host, was extremely kind to meet us in the wee hours of the morning to allow us to check in. She has a kind, calm demeanor that makes you feel welcome, safe and at home immediately. The room was very clean. The bed was comfy. The essentials were there: small table and chair to study, small towels for our use. The guest house was quiet. There were clear reminders in the room to make our stay and the stay of other guests pleasant. There was soap and shampoo for use in the shower area. The toilet was clean. Breakfast was prepared by Gemma’s mother which we enjoyed. I had to leave my daughter for her to be fetched. But when she wasn’t fetched, Gemma’s own dad I think helped my daughter. Gemma also accompanied me to the airport limousine bus station giving advice on how much it would cost. My daughter & I love Gemma and her family. It was near the University, near many food choices, and we could walk to a place celebrating Catholic masses. Will definitely come back.

    The host ms.oh is a great host . She made us felt like home and is very helpful and taking care of our needs. She did extra such as accompanying us taking bus first day of our trip to get us to the famous chicken soup . She also drive us to Korean buffet and to the hills for sight seeing on our last day . She will try everything to make your itinerary works and We enjoyed so much staying in her guest house for 10days. Duri guest house will be our choice again if we go back to Korea !

    It feels like home. The family is nice and welcoming. It is at a convenient location. It is in a quiet area.
    It is a nice guesthouse just across from Korea University and a two minute walk to the subway. It is also only seven stops a way from Samcheong and Geongbukgong. The family is very warm and welcoming.

    Tiny space, bed bugs and mosquitos”
    Location, owner responds fast to queries, big washroom.
    I am confused as to why the reviews on this guesthouse are so great. Let me start with what I felt was good. First of all, the house is about 2-3 mins away from the nearest subway. It's pretty big too, I think it has 2 or 3 levels and there's a garden and their dog, Duri. The washroom is really big and clean too, and the owner responds pretty quickly to your queries via email. That about sums up all the positive aspects. On to the negative ones:which was along the corridor. This means that in order to go to the washroom we had to leave the room, walk along the public corridor outside the house, then enter the house to use the washroom. I told the owner that it was terribly inconvenient so she offered us sandals that we could wear to and fro - this was a fair solution so we accepted it. The room was tiny for 2 of us (if 1 stands by the door, the other has to sit on the bed because there is just no room especially with your luggages on the floor) but I understand because we paid little $ for this and after all it's not like we were gonna stay in the room all day. Two things I cannot accept was the fact that we woke up with bed bug bites, and the fact that our room (and the washroom) had very active mosquitos that wouldn't stop buzzing/landing on our faces even when we sleep. Our booking was for 4 nights but we checked out after 2. I flagged this to the owner and showed her the bites all over my arms and she said they change the sheets but I seriously doubt it. I guess if you're looking for really cheap accommodation, you could consider this. But I'm definitely not coming back again. It's not worth going on vacation and dreading heading back to a place where you can't relax and have a good night's sleep.

    Stayed for 7 nights. Love this place! Really feels cosy and homely. The manager of the guesthouse and her mother were the nicest hosts! Different breakfast was served every morning. Simple yet so delish! Especially love the porridge ahjuma cooked. And duri the dog is so cute!! Location wise, i found it convenient. Food available near anam. Subway just 3 mins away and airport bus stop about 8 mins walk. Best of all is valued for money.

    Considerate, convinient , and economic
    I was a student of Korea University. I brought my family to South Korea last month for my Phd Graduation Ceremony. Duri Guest House is very close to Korea University, as well as 3 mins walk to the subway station which is very convinient indeed. We spent 7 days at Duri Guest House, the host were lovely! Manager cooked Korean pancake for my mom when we were about to leave. I believe Duri Guest House will be my home in Korea whenever I visit there.
