Nice hanok in Seoul”
Quiet, clean, good location.
Pleasant. Nice owner, however speaking very little English. Tiny clean traditional room. Thin walls, so noisy co-guests can be a burden. Breakfast needs improvement.

Traditional Korean Inn”
Culture; Location
The inn is a traditional Korean hanok house and is located just steps away from the Samcheongdong hanok area with art galleries, restaurants, and shops. The room itself was cozy and clean with a futon spread out over a heated floor, but shared bathrooms It's a real cultural experience. I would stay again.

For Trial is OK”
clean . traditional. view
It is a special expereience to stay in a traditional Korean House. Although it took 15mins for walking from the subway station, Gain guesthouse is not difficult to find. Gain guesthouse is smaller than I imagined. Eventhough I staied in a family room for 2 people, It was just enough. There is no garden I expert but I appreciate Gain for her very clean and simple environment and I enjoy to stay here, however the price a bit high.

Experienced korean history with comfort”
Owners were really nice! the toilet is indoors! and it is really beautiful!
Although the Guesthouse is slightly further up the hill, it is very easy to find. In addition, the toilet is indoor, big and very clean. Everything (towels, soap, shampoo, toothpaste) were provided for us. The owners checked what time we would like to have breakfast and promptly prepped our breakfast in the kitchen. It really has a nice ambiance to it.

It is a pleasant stay in Gain”
Traditional Korean style housing, freindly staff and great breakfast.
I am very glad that I choose Gain Hanok Guesthouse for my stay in Seoul. My Korean friend warned me before I go that those traditional style house could be very cold during the night because the door are made of wax paper, just like the old Asian movie and you need to go outside the court for bathroom but this is not the case for Gain. Their bathroom are actually inside the house so you don't need to go outside, and even though the door are made by wax paper, it is not that cold at all as the floor is heated, I actually feel hot during the night. Seoul temperature was about 25F during the day when I was there. Breakfast is American style, including cereal, milk, cream soup and toast. The homemade strawberry jam is the best. This hostel is hosted by a couple who also living in the house, they are super nice. They know basic English so communication is not a problem. The hostess showed me places to visit around the area. She also helped me to look for bus schedule when I told her when I leave. Actually I just want to tell her that I have a early flight (8:30am) in the morning and want to know how to check out, but she and her husband are so eager to help and the husband ended up drove me to the Limousine Bus station at 5:20am. Gain is located inside Bukchon Village, one of the must see area. It is about 20 mins nice walk to Jong-no 3 ga or 15 mins to Anguk station. You can take Limousine Bus 6011 or 6002 from ICN and walk up to the hostel. One thing to aware is that the address listed in agoda (1-38, Gahoe-dong) actually can’t be found around the area. The hostel is between Bukchon-ro and Bukchon-ro 11 gil. Just search by hostel name on google and you should see a lit sign "Gain" when you get there. Let me sum up here: Nice traditional Korean style housing, Friendly staff, Great Breakfast, Clean Bathroom, Fast Internet, Close to Bukchon village and Jong-no district. So if you are looking for something different, Gain is your choice.
