Liked: The host Mr Yew was very nice and he assisted to brief us about the attractions around Sokcho. He also lent us his bicycles for free to ride around the area and recommended us cheap and nice restaurants. Rooms are clean and very good atmosphere in the room and dining area (country style) and we love his dog. Thanks Mr Yew!

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: The hostel looks exactly the same as in the picture - the front facade, the kitchen... And more importantly, the hostel owner, Mr Yoo is really the most helpful owner we've met so far. We really would like to thank him for making our trip so memorable. He had provided so many tips on eating places and sight-seeing spots around Sokcho and Seoraksan.

Liked: Excellent place! The owner, Yoo, is extremely friendly and helpful. He even washed our clothes for us, for free!! He knows all the sights in the area and gave us an introduction when we arrived. He also keeps the place sparkling clean and the communal areas (porch!) are great. Whatever the place may lack in comfort (and that's not much, maybe the showers could be hotter), Yoo more than makes up for with his kindness. Best Hostel in South Korea so far!

Liked: M. Yoo is so kind and helpful. He provides you with a map of the area and details about all the interesting points of view. Free Internet access and free laundary service are real pros. The kitchen and the terrasse are really good place to chill out and meet people.Thank you for everything M. Yoo !

Disliked: Hot water takes 10 minutes to arrive and when you take a shower, 10 minutes, it's loong ! The showers have no pressure. Moreover, the double room are not cleaned during your stay so it can become a little bit "dirty" after few days.
