The first step I walked in, the smell of wonderful cinnamon made me feel so relaxed and soothing. The owner, Mr.Kim was wonderful. He speaks fluent English and... More

I have lived in Korea for 14 months and stayed in many hostels. This one is the best. We recently stayed here for 3 nights in a double room. Not only was it an amazing price and a fabulous location, a 2 min walk from the bus stop but Chung Hee was super friendly and accommodating. We came to tackle... More

We loved staying here for 3 nights in the spring on our trip to jeju. This place was excellently located, very close (walking distance) to the intercity bus terminal so you can basically get anywhere on the island you want. The homemade breakfast was awesome!

Centrally located, surrounded by shops and restaurants, only a short walk to the intercity bus terminal, and bus stops for routes within the city are just nearby. For the room, it's very very basic, mine had the mattress (thick one though) placed on the floor as a bed or tatami however you want to call it.

Mr. Chung-hee's place is very homey, warm and cozy. You wake up and take your breakfast listening to the soothing strains of classical music. Breakfast consists of homemade bread, homemade jams (cinnamon is my favorite), grilled eggs, yogurt, orange juice and coffee/tea. For anyone who has forgotten to bring vitamins for the trip, Mr. Chung-hee has an array of vitamins... More

Really impressed with this hostel; was a little worried 50,000won would be too much but it was worth every penny. The location is bang in the middle of the main area of the old city; catch any bus from the airport going to City Hall and it's 2min walk. From there you've got all the bars and restaurants- it's got... More
