Great location in terms of both transport (especially the airport bus) and closeness to all the facilities Seogwipo has to offer. Magnificent breakfast and owners who not only give advice but even supply "can't go wrong" paper instructions in English and Korean as to how to get to places of interest by bus.
really love the pavkage from the friendliness of the staff to the room to the breakfast..location is nice nearby many attraction and i near to airport limo..nice stay! though 11pm curfew is a little problem but i guess for safety purposes..
The best hostel I've stayed in for a long time. However, I think it would be really easy to sneak in and take the room keys from the counter. That's a security issue

I stayed 3 nights with backpackers and I didnt regret at all. Basic needs were all met!! Roy and the bosses were very friendly and helpful. I was even invited to have lunch together with them at a traditional Korean restaurant and that is one of the best bibimbap I have ever tasted!
Breakfast was better than other hostels, and the owner gave me very helpful information, which was good. But beds were too small for me so I had to fold my legs when sleeping. and they don't have living room and close all the facilities at 11. since there was no light available on the bed, I could do nothing but counting sheep at night. also, 10% of the fee I thought I had paid through this site wasn't included in my payment, so you have to pay 10% more if you make a reservati through this site.
Staff were helpful, great breakfast and easy to reach location. Good facilities that are underutilised in terms of connecting people/fun. Overall is an excellent option and would definitely stay there again.
