I had a fantastic stay at Gyeongju Guesthouse. The owner speaks very good English and was very friendly and helpful, including giving me recommendations of what to see and detailed instructions on how to get to each place. The hostel's atmosphere is very warm, and the owner actively encourages guests to get to know each other. If I ever go back to Gyeongju, I would definitely stay there again.

Hey there, i´m a guy from Germany, who stayed at the Gyeongju Guesthouse for one night in March. I didn´t like the atmosphere, because it wasn´t pretty familiar, although the owner is a great guy, helping wherever he could. Greetings.


Convinent location to the train station and about a 10min walk from the bus station, 15min walk from the museum. The nice old man at the front desk when I checked in didn't speak any English, but there was a list of info in the room on the back of the door re breakfast, check-out times etc.


The place is nice, and location is amazing!!! but the stuff is not able to speak a decent level of english! What made my stay uncomfortable. The man in the front desk didn't even try to understand what i was saying and kept talking to me in korean. At night there was another man in the front desk with a bit better English that explained things .


Gyeongju Guesthouse, is a great place to stay! The staff are very friendly and helped me and a friend plan a hiking trip to Namsan(?) National Park. Had a dinner at the guesthouse with guest mates one night, was the only foreigner there, so it was really great experiencing Korean culture. Location was easy to find, and close to Anapji. (Though a little hard to find places to eat) Would totally recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Gyeongju!
