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”.

    We had an excellent stay at Pedro's House during our trip to Gwangju. Our room was clean and stylish, and the hostel had a really interesting and laid-back vibe. The complimentary breakfast was also great! Would wholeheartedly recommend.

    Pedro's house is a lovely place to stay in Gwangju! Pedro is a really nice person, with great English and can help you out with any questions. The dorm was very spacious with clean washrooms and great wifi. The breakfast is one of the best I have had in South Korea. The cafe is also a nice place to hang out for an evening with a lot travel items and books!

    This is my second stay here. Pedro is very friendly and hospitable, and the overall atmosphere at the place is very warm and welcoming. Absolutely clean, and had no complaints. There’s a cafe downstairs to hang out to do light reading or meet other people. Directions provided was clear. A cooked breakfast is provided at no charge so don’t skip it. My only regret was not staying at Gwangju for another day or two. Will definitely return here!

    Super friendly and helpful owner and staff. The room was clean, spacious and nice. The location was quiet but easy to get into the busy places of the city. Overall, one of the better places I've stayed and hope to be back one day.
