Nice hostel with a very good atmosphere. The hostel is not overly big and has some good common area's, so it's easy to meet other travelers. Staff is A+.
Good and professionally run hostel. It is quite a huge hostel though, and therefore lacks the atmosphere that some good smaller hostels have. You can meet someone and never see them again. There's also a relatively large amount of older people and families on a holiday. And last but not least: it's often fully booked, which sometimes makes it hard or impossible to lengthen your stay on the spot.
Maybe the nicest guesthouse owners in the world. Doldam and Sue will go above and beyond to make your stay memorable. This included cooking a lovely meal when all restaurants in the village were closed (keep that in mind, most places close very early). Because it's the shoulder season, it wasn't very busy, so Doldam even took te time to show me and the other guest a part of the island. Highly recommended.
Min and Jake are always keen to help and show great interest in their guests. It's also a very social place, making it easy for solo travellers to meet other people. The hostel has just been open for 4 months, and the guys are constantly upgrading the place. During my trip, the temperature in Seoul dropped quite a bit and the hostel could get cold. But recently some good quality sleeping bags have been purchased and some heaters have been bought. So I'm sure it's fine now.
A top notch hostel with staff that couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Daniel even managed to find the cab driver who took off with the bag of a girl that just arrived and hot it back. It has the most comfortable beds I've experienced so far with sheets that are custom made and therefore are a lot bigger than standard.
