Perfect location by the train station. Staff tries to be very helpful, even those who can't speak any English. Security is pretty average, no special atmosphere there. Generally good, but not more than for 1 night.

If you stay in South Korea you have to go to Gyeongju. And Gyeongju Guesthouse is just the place to stay. Located less than 3 minutes by foot from the Station you can also access a lot of the citiy"s attractions from the Guesthous by foot. The hostel has a huge kitchen and common area, wich lacks a little of atmosphere but as of it's size you have to have the chance of meeting many nice people.

Really 2 minutes from the train station. Manager very nice and explain everything to you. 24 hours breakfast. Ypu can hire a bicicle and make a very interesting route that the manager makes for you. totally recomended.

Great location to get too many places in the city and it's surrounds. Excellent value for money. Breakfast provided. The owner and the staff were very friendly and made us feel so welcome. It's possible to rent bicycles from there too. Great place to stay.

This is a great hostel. It was the best service I've experienced from any hostel I've ever stayed in; my friends and I were treated extremely well.

Picked this GH for a 4 night stay because of location (near tourist office and food market) and reviews. Owner and night manager were friendly, however overall place lacked atmosphere. It had a large kitchen and common area, but the one cleaning lady for the GH always struggled to keep it clean (dirty floor, overflowing bins), as so many people didn't clean up after themselves. Bathroom were cleaned daily, but walls mouldy & sink leaked. Very small rooms, no door key, just a locker.

Advices and help were great, the room was convenient, the comment on cleanliness is due to the sink leak, and a few odd leftover items in the room. In the end we spent a good time in your place!

Dirty laundry. A very small number. Was declared an extra bed. Upon arrival we were told that extra mattress - it's just a blanket on the floor. O_O After a request to change the dirty linen, we were told that, yes, well, the laundry will be new. It never happened. Pay towels. More in this hostel to stay I will not.

The location is excellent and it takes only a few minutes to walk from the railway station. The owner is very generous that he offers bread, egg, jam, butter, tea and coffee all day. The people stay there were mostly Koreans who are very well-behaved and considerate. Really enjoy the stay there. But I suggest the owner to fix the pipe and fan in the bathroom. The pipe leaked water from the sink and the fan was very noisy.

While we were there, the other guests were all Korean natives on vacation. Speaking only English, it was hard to communicate. The guesthouse owner speaks decent English, but with a heavy accent so it may take awhile to learn to understand him. Nevertheless, he was very helpful, showed us how to get to some of the better tourist sites, and hooked us up with bikes to get there (5,000 won a day). Overall a great place.

This is the best hostel I've stayed at in Korea. The place looked very sketchy when we first arrived, and we weren't sure we had made a good choice. We proved to be wrong. These were the most comfortable beds I've had in Korea in 5 months. Private bathrooms for every room, breakfast (toasts, jam, coffee, eggs) available 24h/7. The owner is an experienced traveller and knows a lot. Best location, we could walk to pretty much every place (except Bulguksa and Seokguram). I would go back anytime.
