Property Description

Pedro’s House is located in the heart of Gwangju, birthplace of Korean democracy and capital of traditional cuisine. The hospitable city offers something for everyone: provincial cultural experience, local cuisine, beautiful hiking trails of Mudeung-san, vibrant nightlife and sports arenas. We are located nearby the best park in the city with historical relics honoring the May 18 democratization movement.

Our rooms have spacious and comfortable western-style beds. The intimate setting of the guesthouse is cozy and feels like home. We offer a complimentary continental breakfast including juice, coffee and tea. Guests can spend time outside in a hammock on the roof or veranda. Get the feeling of a homestay as Pedro’s father is a city taxi driver and his mother is a vendor in the local fish market. Pedro’s family can offer you services like taxi rides directly from the hostel and tasting fresh seafood before it hits the market.

Guests will feel special and taken care of. It’s more than a stay—it’s a learning experience. The hostel serves as a stepping stone and a knowledge base. It is a true hub of information unique to southwestern Korea.

Hyun Seok (Pedro) is a world traveler and fluent English speaker—he can share insider travel tips. He hosts a travel club, “Lonely Korea” (find on Facebook) for foreigners who want to travel all over the peninsula. Look into his rare book collection to get ideas during your stay. The theme here is “less is more”.

Latest Review

" Pedro's house was by far the most inviting, interesting, and pleasant hostel we found in Korea. Pedro is friendly and knowledgeable, and the travel cafe is a great space to sit and daydream. It's very close to the subway, convenient for parks and daytrips outside town, and a pleasant walk to the bus station. "
