Great location to reach the city center or Seoraksan park, the bus stop is just around the corner. What I would like to especially highlight is the attitude of hostel staff. We wanted to go to Naksansa and then to Gyeongju, the receptionist was so kind and created us detailed itinerary in EN/KOR with explanation where to find bus stops / buy tickets etc. she even checked all the buses via phone! That's what I call perfect service, thanks a lot :)...btw and don't touch Gulumi ;)

Yoo was extremely helpful, giving an in-depth introduction to the hotel and the surrounding area. Staff at The House Hostel are very friendly and always ready to help.

Very kind and attentive staff, great breakfast, super clean, very pleasant place to stay. The only thing I didn't like were the dorm beds, which squeak a lot anytime someone moves.

This is only the second hostel I've stayed in and altho the first was an amazing experience arriving at the house hostel felt almost like I was staying in a five star hotel. Amazing place, extremely helpful staff and I just loved being here, hopefully I'll be able to visit again :-)

Absolutely loved this hostel and everything about it. Location was perfect, just around the corner from the bus terminal. Exquisite attention to detail and unique decor was just jaw dropping. The beds were comfortable, linens clean and new, and bathroom ensuite. Yoo the owner was informative, kind, and accommodating. I would stay at this hostel every time I visit Sokcho!

A lovely hostel with beautiful decor! The host, Mr Yoo was very friendly and helpful; he gave a lot of tips on sightseeing and food around Sokcho. Good location with the city within walking distance and bus stop right outside the hostel.

A perfect hostel! I didn't expect such a good hostel and really enjoyed staying there. The building itself is beautiful and has fantastic design. The managers are also extremely friendly and helpful. They offered me a better room since there was an available one. Also it's very budget-friendly. Very much recommended indeed!

Everyone is very friendly and speaks English. The place is big and clean. The rooms are charming and interesting with an eclectic feel. The place is a little old but in great condition. Everything is very clean and orderly. It feels like a bed and breakfast more than a hostel. The main hostel guy is super charming and has the best advice. Do what he says and you'll have the most wonderful time. If I return I will definitely stay here again, hands down. Loved it! Amazing experience!

I am so lucky to find this hostel. The place is a good location. The bus stop going to Seoraksan is just few steps away. The Bus City Terminal (not the Express Terminal) is located just few blocks away. The view down the road is a sea view which is fantastic. Mr. Yoo is very accommodating and very helpful. I will come back for the autumn season next year and will stay here again.
