Friendly staff and clean”
Generally, my stay at minjoonggak was good mainly because it provides a comfortable, clean and safe place to sleep in. Firstly, The staff is extremely friendㅣy and will go all out to help you, Even though he speaks little English, you can use signs or pointing to express what you wish. Even though the place may seemed difficult to reach (from Airport limousine 600), it is actually quite simple once you get used to it. Minjoonggak is about\3000 taxi fee away from The Newkyongnam hotel bus stop for airport limousine. The room that i stayed in was a 4 bed room dorm for females. it was rather spacious. i think the best thing about minjoonggak is that it is 5 minutes walk away from seogwipo intercity bus termninal, 30 minutes walk to cheonjiyeon water fall and seogwipo submarine. if you are interested about olle trail in jeju,minjonggak is the place for you because the manger is part of the olle committee.
Hospitable, Good Location, Not the Best Rooms”
Airport limousine 600 drops u off a little further beyond New Kyeongnam Tourist Hotel. Get off the limousine bus, walk back towards New Kyeongnam Tourist Hotel. Don't stop here. Keep walking...until you come to a junction where 4 or 5 roads intersect. Three roads go upslope. If you see this junction, congrats! Follow the path up Seomun-ro, and on 3rd left turn, you are at Minjoonggak! It's not labelled in English, only in Korean. Check-in was fast. I got a bed in the dorm room on the 5th floor. Well.... not so much of a bed - it was a mattress on the floor with some covers and blanket. Bathroom was ok... Water coming through the showerhead was erratic; it was intermittently hot and cold. The guesthouse is 3 min walk from the old bus terminal which brings you to places around Jeju island. The guesthouse is opposite Food Street. Walkable to Seogwipo city centre (about 5-10min) for some shops, restaurants and a wet market. Also across the road from the guesthouse was a motorbike shop; 100cc scooter for 25000 won per day. With this, you are good to go around Jeju island! I navigated with a paper map. It wasn't too hard; you just need to know which town you are heading towards and follow the signs. Major roads are numbered, so that would help too. When lost, locals are happy to help you find your way if you ask. Minjoonggak is a good start-off point to explore Jeju-do. It's a 5 min ride to Cheongjiyeon waterfalls. I spent one day riding from the guesthouse towards attractions in the right half of the island (Sancheon Ichulbong Sunrise Peak, Jeju Folk Village, Manjanggul Cave). Another day was spent riding on the left half of the island (pass by Hallasan Hills, visit Mysterious Rd, Loveland, Jeju City, and museums in Jungmun). The only thing I didnt like was that in dorms, people sleep very early (around 10-ish). On my last night, the owner invited me and some guests for Jeju snacks and drinks. It was a very friendly affair and gave a special touch to round up my trip.
Excellent location, friendly staff”
I loved staying here. The guesthouse is located in central Seogwipo - the main bus station (Junggang Rotary) is only about 5 minutes walk away, and you can also walk to many of the good restaurants at Arang Jeul Food street (just across the road!), even walking distance to the Cheonijeon waterfall (25 minutes). The guesthouse staff are very friendly and attentive. They will help advice you on how to get to places. Most of the people who stay here are walking the Jeju Olle. The guesthouse is along one of the Olle routes. Place is clean - there are lots of rooms (6 floors!) - but still quiet. stayed in the female dorm - there was even a TV and hair dryer in the room. Locker also provided. The dorm bed is affordably priced - high recommended!
Reasonable price, convenient location, all rounded facilities and nice staff”
This guesthouse is very popular among koreans and also foreigners! For me travelling alone, I got to meet korean people and luckily a lone traveller from my country! The room is big and spacious with individual lockers and very comfortable with heated floor. There are towels provided everyday and toothpaste as well. There is also a fridge on the 4th floor and kitchen with washing machines on the 5th floor for everyone. This guesthouse is just a minute walk away from the bus terminal so it is very convenient to take the bus to attraction areas in the south of jeju. If you're a walker, you can also walk to some tourist spots in seogwipo, like oedolgae and the cheonjiyeon waterfalls. (around 30 minutes) The staff was really nice too. One night, me and my newly met friend asked for recommendations of BBQ pork restaurants and he offered to take us there right to the entrance of that restaurant. We were so grateful and enjoyed the dinner there! Also, there is a long street with many restaurants and a market nearby so it is not difficult to find delicious and indigenous food to eat!! I will definitely stay here again in the future!!
The staffs was very friendly. Everyday we were offered oranges. We will come back and stay at Minjoonggak Guesthouse if we are coming to Jeju Island again.
Great choice in Jeju”
The owner is really nice. I have arrived to the guest house really late, about 1p.m but the male owner didn't mind and took me to the room immediately. If you have any problems, just tell them and they will try to help you as much as possible. The location of this guest house is so convenient. It nears Arang joeul food street and Olle market where you can find a lot of tasty food and local delicacy with reasonable price. And it has some bus stops around. It is a nice place to stay in Jeju and I highly recommend anyone who want to stay at Seogwipo choose this guest house. I had a wonderful time in Jeju :)
perfect location to explore Jeju”
I stayed for 2 nights at ondol room for 3 persons with my friends.. we really enjoyed our stay in Minjoonggak because the room is spacious and comfortabale, close to street food and close to seogwipo bus terminal. Really recommended for budget travellers!!!
Location is near bus stop in walking distance. The room is clean but need to walk up and down the staircase to my room at 4th floor. If you need to go to uptown Jeju-si, be prepared for the bus travel around 1 hour from Seogwipo. Overall is nice guesthouse.
Overall we had a wonderful 3 night stay at Minjoonggak. Friendly boss. Great location with food streets nearby. The room is big and clean with attached bathroom. It's one of the best guesthouse that I had stay in Jeju.
Budget guesthouse but the cleanliness OK”
We are family traveller with young children booked this budget guesthouse for 3 nights due to worth the price, from reading some reviews. When we came to GH, the owner asked to pay for the addition of 2 kids but he gave us discount and he was quite informative and friendly welcoming us. The minus, I thought the owner can speak English very well (again based on customer reviews), but the fact he couldn't, I know that he willing to help us a lot, fortunately when we arrived to that hotel, another guest whose Korean but able to speak English as our translator and told us much about the tourist areas, no other GH have cheap price like in Minjoonggak, etc. The location just about 100m to Seogwipo-si & Old Intercity Bus Terminal, so we can sightseeing and go to tourist areas by bus. Recommended.
Feels like home!The best GH in Korea I ever stayed”
Pros -We arrive at 10am, but staff allowed us to check in early. -Great location about 2 minutes walk to intercity bus stop(Jungang Rotary) -Near to food market(I forgot the names) -Spacious room with Flat screen tv, computer,mini fridge,mirror and attached bathroom -Free laundry services, microwave,shoes drier,fridge on the rooftop. -Friendly and helpful staff with minimum english -Free simple drink (coffee&tea) for breakfast -Superb wifi! Cons None Best guesthouse in Jeju!!!and Korea!!
get more than what you pay for”
The price is the cheapest I found so I didn't expect much but the 3- bed dorm is layed out nicely. There's TV, hairdryer, shampoo, body wash, soap, and small towels. Room and the ensuite bathroom is spacious. Location is around 5-6 min walk from New Kyungnam hotel stop of bus 600 (airport bus to Seogwipo City) on one side and around 3 min walk from Jungang Rotary on the other side. Almost across arang joeul food street. Near bus stops/bus hub and lots of restaurants and stores nearby. For the price, you really get more than what you paid for
I'm not good enough, but thank you for feeling good.
Perfect for your basecamp in Jeju”
To get there from the airport, I took bus number 181 about 1 hour. I stopped at Jungan Rotary. I walked around 4-5 minutes to the guesthouse. I was arrived at there around 1:30 PM. And I could immediately check-in. The room was spacious. I have two pillows, one is thicker than the other. I find the bed is hard. The bathroom is old but works perfectly. There are toiletries available. If you leave the room, put your key on the receptionist table so they could clean your room. The service is good. They changed the towels and emptied the bin every day. The facilities are good, it isn’t luxury but they have many things, like oven, microwave, shoe dryer, 2 washing machines, water dispenser, fridge, a drying rack. So you will get anything you need. Sometimes the internet was a bit slow. Location is really good. Many buses to reach many tourist destinations. Perfect place as your basecamp in Jeju. And on foot, you can reach interesting places, like the food streets, a waterfall, etc.
Great budget Guesthouse”
The location is great, with the free city parking (from 6pm-9am) within walking distance (parking is something to consider for those who drives in Seogwipo). the local market is also within walking distance with lots of eating places across the road. The room is big, with attached toilet. Though the staff may not speak English well, but he is very helpful indeed. All these comes with an unbeatable price.
Mingjoongak Guesthouse is very near to airport limousine bus stop and just a few meters away from the bus station. It's also near to some tourist spots in Seogwipo. The room is spacious and clean.
Good location with great food options”
The guesthouse is located right next to the food alley so you'll have lots of options on where to eat. It is a 5-min walk from the bus stop. I wouldn't recommend carrying heavy luggage as it's all stairs from the reception to the rooms. I stayed in a rooms with two other people and it was pretty spacious considering we all had our own luggage. There were enough electrical sockets for our use and we had a bathroom to ourselves. The dining area is on the top floor but looks to still be in 'renovation mode'. There is a microwave for guests to use but I didn't stay much there so I'm not sure if they have a fridge too. The location of the guesthouse is great there are tourist attractions near that you can walk to and a park as well. The host was very helpful too in giving directions to where I wanted to go. There is even a map in the reception area of the bus numbers that you can take and their arrival and departure times. Would stay here again.
Old but clean”
Room is big enough for 2 adults and a baby. Very near to old bus terminal just 3minutes walk. 10 minutes to famous wet market. And 1.6km by waze to the nearest halal restaurant. Got refrigerator, big tv, hair dryer, nailclipper. We didnt bring our international plug and luckily the uncle at reception borrow us his plug. Tq uncle. Got washing machine upstair. We went during winter so we never use it since no dryer machine. Also got microwave, toaster, shoe dryer all located upstair. Very helpful with free map at reception area. Uncle try hard to help us looking around seogwipo and 1 nice lady with fluent english give really good direction to each place i wanna go.
Strategic Location and Cheap Guesthouse in Soegwipo City, Jeju”
Strategic Location and Cheap Guesthouse in Soegwipo City, Jeju. We stayed 2 nights at this guesthouse... location in city center soegwipo... price is value for money........... recommended...
What a shame, I just stay here a night. Point; they have floor heater, bath tab, shampoo, toothpaste, iron facilities, TV, wifi, hangers, hair dyer, water dispenser, washing machine, microwave, shoe dryer, rooftop, private bathroom and toilet, large room. We have 2 big luggage, and my friend could sleep on the floor too! Next to Lab Coffee. Near bus stop and 5 min walk to central bus stop to go around Jeju. Minus; no lift, kitchen or food lounge looks old. If you're muslim, just bring your own small travel rice cooker and cook. Simple. No halal food around but have market you can buy groceries. Take care.
NIce budget hotel”
