          I've already written a raving review. I wanted to extend my reservation at the hostel, but it was cheaper to do so via Agoda. The owner even suggested that I rebook with Agoda. Again, I have nothing but great things to say about BlueBoat Jeonju!

          I have nothing negative to say about this hostel. It's beautifully designed and decorated, clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. The owner is kind, helpful, and welcoming. I like the security measures that are in place. The hostel is in a shared building. They keycards give me peace of mind knowing that strangers who are not lodging at the hostel cannot enter. If I'm ever in Jeonju again, I won't stay anywhere else.

          For solo traveler this is really a good stay. Washroom/bathroom is so clean and bed is comfortable. The Jeonju famous chocolate pie outlet PNB is just across the road. Hanok Village, Jeondong cathedral and Pungnaptoseong gate are about 10 minutes walk away. Shopping district is also nearby. It’s was an enjoyable stay.

          Location of the hostel is very close to famous places such as the cathedral and hanok village. The hostel is just right opposite the famous PNG Bakery which sells the Jeonju famous Choco Pie. The hostel was clean and with a convenient common area for travelers to have meals and interact with other travelers. Overall was a satisfied stay at the hostel.

          It is approx 25-30 mins brisk walk from the Intercity Bus terminal but Blueboat is very close to the Hanok Village and all other attractions. PNB is just opposite too if you don't want to wait for your choco pies in the Hanok Village. Host was especially welcoming, friendly and hospitable. Entire hostel (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and common areas) is VERY clean; you leave your shoes at the door and putter around in bedroom slippers. Dorm room was nice size (4-br) - it is code-lock so I felt safe leaving my belongings even though there was no personal locker assigned. Had a great and comfortable stay.

          Good: 1) Good security! Only able to access to hostel by passcode and huge locker assigned to each guest in the dormitories. 2) Blinds are attached to each bunk bed for privacy. 3) Clean shared bathroom and common pantry area with free basic tea and coffee provided. 4) Basic toiletries (including towel) are provided. 5) Near Hanok Village and other attractions. 6) Ever-ready to guide and share information owner. 7) Lift landing despite only at 2nd level. Not-so-good: 1) Distance a little far from bus terminal. Nevertheless, detailed directions given by owner to make an easy way to the hostel. Will stay in Blue Boat again if I return to Jeonju.

Beds were comfortable, the underbed locker is a genius idea along with a roller shade for maximum privacy. Will definitely recommend this hostel again.

          May disappoint if you are on a holiday”

          Went in early spring (the temp when we are back in the rooms avergaed 7-8degs). They were so lean on facilities that you had to switch on and off the lights and heater in the shared bathroom when entering and leaving. There is no dry place to dress yourself in the cubicles without getting wet in the process. Towel provided was a handtowel size. It was freezing too because the common corridors were not heated.

          Reviewed April 07, 2019

          Thank you for your review. We are sorry you didn't feel comfortable on your trip with your mom. We have a individual control system that can be adjusted for each room, not a central control system. So guest can adjust the temperature to suit him/her because each person feels different temperature. This has caused many guests to have a high satisfaction, but we feel sorry for you that you were uncomfortable with this. We are sorry the inconvenience of using the shower room and towels. In general, we use a 35*73 size towel in Korea. We hope you understand it as a cultural difference. If you go to a hostel in Korea, you'd better check to see if they're offering a bath towel. (Of course, bath towel is provided at hotels in Korea.) Based on your feedback on the shower facility, we will try to find ways to improve it. It's going to be a Blueboat Hostel with better facilities through feedback from our guests. Thank you.

          the room is clean and its like capsule hotel, so you have a bed of your own and drape to close it. the staff give good advises for what to do and eat. for the cons- there is only one toilet for men, whice make them nit that clean as well. there is common hall but you cant be there after 0000 and between 1100-1500, so isnt nice for solo travellers who wish to know others. i asked to watch tv only till 1200 (for nba playoffs), and i had to beg them to let me do it...
