Liked: It's location is really convenient - all the main sights are either within walking distance, or you can walk to the Intercity bus terminal for sights further away; the owner is really friendly and helpful, and always comes to have a chat with everyone at breakfast; during the winter the house seems to be well heated; the beds are very comfortable, and the area is very quiet so a good night's sleep is guaranteed!

Disliked: Liek most people have said, the shower and toilets are outside. However, this isn't a really bad thing - if you're feeling groggy in the morning, a cool breeze will certainly give you a good kickstart.

Liked: This is a very atmospheric hostel and the owner is very nice and helpful. Probably the nicest place I stayed in while in Korea.

Disliked: The bathrooms are ouside, which isn't really a problem when the weather is nice, but could be ucomfortable when it is cold or it is rainy. I also dislike soft toilet seats:-) Towel not included. No biggies, really.

Liked: Whoever is looking for a nice quiet place to relax and enjoy a bit of korean calmness can find it in this guesthouse. The owner is super friendly and would help me out whenever I had a question. She would even drive me to the bus station because I was late!Once you found it, it is a really good location to explore the numerous sights all around Gyeongju. It may be hard to find in the first place though, especially if your taxi driver doesn't speak a word of english...The outside toilets and showers aren't a problem at all. During the day there is music running in the common room, which you might find annoying but only adds to the character.Also, the breakfast is not that big, but enough for a first snack after you woke up.They are quite strict with the 'lights out' in the common room to ensure that no one is disturbing the other guests' sleep.All in all I can only recommend this wonderful place.

Disliked: Breakfast is a bit too small.
