        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!

        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.

        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).

        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

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!

        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 :)

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).

        Location, BBQ

        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).

        The helpful staff, the private bunk beds, the clean room

        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.
