    I would absolutely recommend staying here. Clint's welcoming and kind demeanor made my trip to South Korea wonderful and memorable. The town itself is beautiful and charming, and the hostel is located in a very convenient location to anything you might want to do. Clint is very knowledgeable about what there is to do and see in the area, and he is very helpful with navigating how to get to certain sights. It felt like a home away from home. I am very grateful to have stayed here.

    I've been to many hostels, but none compare to the feeling I had when staying at Hanjin. Mr. Kwon, the host, makes you feel at home from the very beginning - whether by giving alot of tips about the city, being super cool about everything, having the occasional nightcap from his ginseng soju with all of the guests, and just providing a very home like feeling to each guest. Also, the rooms and clean and cozy, and the price is great. If you're in Gyeongju, you should definitely stay here.

    This hostel is a true gem. It’s been running for almost 50 years by Mr Kwon and his father, and you can tell it’s seen so many interesting faces in that time. Yes, the rooms are a bit shabby, but they’re comfortable and clean, and incredibly cheap (Mr Kwon only charges enough to keep the place going). The hostel has the most amazing roof space to chill on, and the whole atmosphere is so relaxed. Mr Kwon, the owner, is quite genuinely one of the most helpful people I have ever met.

    We booked this hostel because of other reviews raving about the owner, and they were pretty much spot on. Mr Kwon is an extremely likable guy, and does everything he can to help you have a great trip. I'd heartily recommend staying here!

    Clint Kwon, owner-operater, took care of me in Gyeongju. From riding his bike to fetch me when I first arrived and couldn’t find the hostel, to providing expert advice on where to go and how to get there, to going out to dinner three nights with me and other guests, to doing my laundry in the Hostel’s washing machine for a reasonable price, Clint came through. He was there each of my five days and available to talk.

    Among all the hip, new hostels in Korea, this is not one of them. The place has a huge rooftop that looks like it hasn't been visited in years, with whatever furniture there is crammed into a storage room. The inside common area is small and not very inviting and my room had only a tiny window to open (therefore constantly hot) and a very dysfunctional mosquito net. On the plus side it is clean, centrally located and Clint, the owner, is super nice and helpful.

    The owner was very nice and I suppose this hostel did the job, but the environment was miserable. There were things crowding the common areas and there was one bathroom and one shower for the whole place. As far as the room, the bed was a mattress on the floor with a top sheet laid on top, the walls were stained, the lights for the room were in the hallway. Overall, it felt like a drug den.
