Great place to stay! ”
Clean, cozy and cheap! A place where I really felt like home. If u r in Jeju u should definitely stop here! Super friendly staff, super clean place, comfortable bed, Wi-Fi works really well. I appreciated the fact that they use curtain for the bed, u have more privacy! I'll definitely come back here one day!
Clean,spacious & fully equiped hostel”
Worth to stay overall. Nearby many choices of food, near to market so no worry on food.There have washing machine & you just pay 2000 won for daily breakfast. Elevator is available so no worry if you have heavy luggage. Location is convenient to go anyway by public transport. Airport bus stop is nearby.
Really nice hostel with big lockers for storage. Beds each have curtain, light and socket. The BBQ for 15000 was a great way for a solo traveller to experience Korean BBQ. (Most people eating there were Korean) Slight negative: One shower/toilet room in room.
Good Choice but Cleaness to be Improved”
Good location in the middle of the city, with beautiful view close to the sea. Have nice common kitchen and garden, also cute dogs. Quite good choice for budget travellers. However, one crtical improvement point is cleaness of the bed. There were someone else’s hairs when first unfolded the blanket. Hope they care about it better.
The staff here were excellent. They seem passionate about the activities of Jeju. They printed me off detailed maps and step by step guides to reach various destinations. 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.
Nice place to stay”
Rooms were comfortable and loved how each bed had their own curtain and sockets. Would be nicer if breakfast was provided. Near to bus stops to go to other parts of the island. Good food options nearby. Recommend to stay here if staying in Seogwipo. Good place to meet other people.
5-7 mins walk from bus stop (600 bus from jeju city to seogwipo), easy to find with google map. Quite modern building with garden, coffee shop, lift and combination lock. 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).
Great stay, and awesome host”
It was perfect. The host is super nice. Especially if you're indonesian, the host can speak bahasa, as his wife is Indonesian. The room was well equipped and clean. Each bed has curtain and electricity plug. The host even walk us to the nearest bust station!
relaxing and plenty to explore”
the hostel was close to the airport bus stop. the reception can speak English fluently and helpful in giving tourist information. it's close to the food street and shopping areas. the cafe where breakfast is served is very relaxing and the wifi is very good. breakfast is simple but adequate. there are also several tourist attraction nearby which you can have a relaxing walk there. overall, it's a relaxing stay.
good place for backpackers”
there is a cafe in the backpacker's home which allows you to plan your trip in a nice atmosphere and meet other backpackers at the point to share experience. although the staff may not have good spoken english, they are always welcome and helpful. but it would be abit noisy until midnight because of the music playing at the pub. luckily all my korean roomates are very kind and polite
There is a small bar in the guesthouse, but it has a stage and enough space if you wanna dance. They often open mic from 9.30p.m to 10.30p.m, I had chance to sing here, it is super awesome. This is an ideal place for both group travellers or solo traveller. I would like to come back here and see the very hospitable host again!
Awesome Hostel 👍”
Fast WiFi, good location, bed with curtains, and a huge kitchen where you can cook and meet people. Additional 2k for breakfast.
they were really kind
Exceptionally good guest house”
I liked everything about this hostel. The wonderful owner and staff make sure the guests are happy and comfortable. The included breakfast has nice variety and there's a fun BBQ nearly every night. Highly recommended!
I loved the cafe, great food, friendly staff... The location is good, only a short distance from Olle Trail #6. My room was spotless and very modern. The front desk staff were a bit underwhelming as far as friendliness, but that was the only downside to my stay. Would definitely recommend to others!
Perfect Spot and Good Vibe”
Was there with my girlfriebd to trekk Hallasan national park. Got a nice private room: comfy, clean, spacious with a private terrasse. Located in Seogwipo nearby market and restaurant. Outside fire, pub amd restaurant, kitchen to cook your stuff, and laundry. So nice! And staff are georgeous! Especially Kenny! Many thanks to you guys!!
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 :)
Very Comfortable and Clean Guesthouse ”
I booked Annex-Double Bed Room but was given Annex-Family Room which is very spacious. It has its own bathroom. Heating system in the room was good and it is located opposite a food street. Restaurants are everywhere, easy to look for food and desserts. The building itself has parking spaces but very limited. They provide breakfast buffet with limited choices at KRW3,800 and BBQ dinner buffet at KRW15,000 (booking required).
Nice base for exploring Jeju ”
Rooms in the new annex are modern and clean, having 2 power sockets in your bunk bed makes recharging phone/tablet/camera really easy. Lockers are not extremely tall so a big suitcase/backpack might not fit in (but then we're in Korea so risk of theft is really low). The evening BBQ (unlimited black pork for 15000KRW) is a nice way of meeting fellow backpackers (though most people were Koreans when I was there). There is a curfew at midnight but it does not look to be enforced. 5 min away from bus stop from airport and to other parts of the island making access to the different Olle Gil sections easy (hotel is near the end of section 6, start of section 7).
Stay Here While in Seoqwipo”
I really enjoyed my four day stay at Backpacker's Home. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The rooms were cleaned everyday. The shower had great water pressure! The bunk beds had curtains for privacy which is an excellent idea. It was close to tourist activities like the cheonjiyeon waterfall and the submarine tour. Great places to eat around town as well. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay.
