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.

    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!

    Pedro's House is a great place to stay if you're heading to Gwangju. Great central location, easily accessible to the subway, and Pedro is super nice and accommodating. He knows everything there is to know about Gwangju and whatever problems you might face he's always eager to help. Definitely stay here if you're heading to Gwangju

    Pedro was great - really helpful and friendly. The breakfast was pretty decent and freshly cooked (and free!). The hostel was easy to find and very convenient for both the metro and the bus station. And most importantly, the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and well cared for. A really lovely place to stay.

    Pedro's Hostel is a nice small hostel close to Sangmu-district (lively district next to Downtown in the east) in Gwangju. It is very clean, has comfortable beds and wifi everywhere. Pedro, the owner, and Lea, a french girl now working in Korea for several years are super nice and always about to help you with everything. A small breakfast and coffee or tea are provided in the coffee shop belonging to the owner as well.
