It was fine for one night. The owner was nice and friendly but was mostly absent when I was there. The breakfast is available all day, which is nice. I thought it was strange that there were no sheets, just sleeping pads and comforters on the beds. I did wonder how often they get washed. I never encountered anyone cleaning the rooms or common spaces, though it was very slow when I was there. There are only a few lockers for valuables for the whole hostel. It has a nice vibe otherwise.
Can't reccomend enough. Felt like a korean home stay and was very welcoming. The owner was nice enough to cook two traditional korean meals for the guests including a full korean bbq for Xmas day. Will definitely stay again next time I'm in gwangju!
Ok, the owner was extremely helpful and nice. He helped me a lot, and every time I saw him he was giving someone advice or directions. However,the place I arrived to did not meet what was advertised. The listing says linens included. It did NOT mention that did not mean sheets. The only linens offered were a nonwashed comforter & mattress pad. NO sheets. Also a safe neighborhood but only 3 lockers for the entire hostel & neighbors kept coming and going and sleeping on the couch. Flophouse.
