Really nice hostel, very friendly and helpful staff and generally nice feel and atmosphere, great location in the heart of the city a short walk from the sea, plenty of places to eat nearby too - a good base to explore Jeju from and very close to the airport.

We had a very great stay, the location is perfect and staff is very friendly and speaks fluent English. The bathroom ensuite is ok, but showers on the corridoor are much nicer. All in all, perfect value for money and the staff is very helpful for all kind of questions :) Thank you!

The hostel smells very musty, but it looks pretty clean. The bedrooms have air conditioning, but the beds themselves are not comfortable at all (I woke up with pain in my back everyday). The staff is very friendly and helpfull, and the wifi works fine. The breakfast is very limited, but a few slices of toast is all I need in the morning. It is located near the port and the bus stop closeby quickly connects you to the bus terminal and the airport. However, it takes a while to be somewhere nice

Nice and helpful staff. Close to airport and not far from bus terminal from where you can take busses around the island. Get a tmoney card so you can travel around without paying too much extra.traveltime to beaches on the west and east as well as udo island between 1 1/2 and 2h. But nice scenery on the way. If i had known anything about jeju before i would have stayed on udo island or hyeopjae beach. But i wanted to relax and not to party.area around hostel not beautiful at all. Not even nice.

Breakfast should start at least at 7am, especially for those of us who want to grab a bite before making the early trip to Mt. Hallasan. The staff were very friendly, and helped me when I had any questions.

Besides the fact that the hostel owns only one fork, everything else was totally perfect. I've never been to such a clean hostel. The whole staff was amazingly friendly and always helpful. The location couldn't be better.

Place could have been cleaner for the price. Was very humid/damp even with the AC on. Staff were amazing and great location made up for some of it.

Great and cheap place to stay in. Ventilation in the rooms and bathrooms can be improved as there is a slight mouldy smell. Staff was very helpful with directions, and quick to reply emails.

It was all good. The staff was really kind and helpful, especially since a lot of flights off the island were getting cancelled due to a typhoon. The guy at the front desk was really patient and answered all kinds of questions from stranded travelers. I had the private triple suite, which is awesome because it's often awkward travelling in a group of three. It was clean, comfortable, and a good location. Although the facilities were good, they were nothing special.

Everything was great except the cleanliness. The rooms didn't seem clean and the bathrooms smelled. The main bathroom in the first floor was always out of toiler paper. The staff is super friendly. The hostel is located very near all the black pig restaurants. This hostel has a basement and many guest go there to drink and relax. I think it is a good hostel to meet young people and party together.

The Forest Hostel was fantastic! We immensely enjoyed our stay with them. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful. We happened to be visiting when a typhoon hit and ended up being stranded on Jeju for two extra days. The staff immediately booked us a room for the remaining time which took so much stress and anxiety off our shoulders. The hostel has a great atmosphere and a nice public space for hanging out. It is close to the ferry terminal and several bus stops. I would stay there again.
