Liked: The proprietor is a very nice man who has clearly been in the hostel industry for years and speaks English as a native speaker. He genuinely cares about the guests - when I failed to stop by the desk for a map and tips, he tracked me down to make sure I knew the ropes, and he remembered my name for the duration of the visit. The wifi at this hostel was also the easiest and most reliable of any hostel I've stayed at, which sometimes is all a hostel needs to make it a good stay.

Disliked: This was probably a two-star hostel when it opened up and time has not done it any favors. Safety is a big problem. Note that if you book a dorm room, all you are getting is a bed. That's it. There's no lock on the door, no lockers, and while you are given the option of leaving your expensive things in the proprietor's room while you're out, it's not as if anyone wants their non-expensive things stolen either. The luggage room is also unlocked and watched only when the proprietor isn't napping. If you're traveling with anything expensive, I'd try somewhere else - but personally I'd stay here again despite the faults.

Liked: This was my second time staying at the Hanjin Hostel, having first lodged there back in 2010. The hostel is simple and no frills, but doesn’t pretend to be more than it is. The rooms are basic and perhaps a little dated, but this just adds to the character of the place. It is perhaps the friendliness of the owner and his wife where the Hanjin excels. Always willing to help and give advice, I was more than grateful for the information they gave me.

Disliked: The Hanjin is located near to the city's two bus terminals, but perhaps a little far from the train station (a taxi may be needed if you have a lot of luggage). Although Gyeongju itself is a beautiful part of Korea, the area where the hostel is located is perhaps not. Situated in a maze of Korean style motels, it could be easy to get lots trying to find your way to the main town centre. That said, some new developments nearby, have made located the Hanjin a little easier.

Liked: The owner, Mr Kwon is very friendly and helpful. He gives great advice on what there is to do in GyeongJu and how to travel to sites outside of the city. The single room with ensuite was very large and spacious.

Liked: Amazing couple run this place who speak French, English, Korean and a bit of Japanese. We were invited in for tea and a chat and ended up chatting to the couple for 2-3 hours and the taught us some Korean which was great!They are very good at advising on what to do and where to go. We went to a fantastic restaurant on their recommendation.Free wifi, towels and luggage storage.

Disliked: It feels like stepping into the 1970's when you come in. Old decor, faded photos and a little run down(but the rooms you sleep in are perfect). Only a small common area to eat and hang out, but then again they did invite us in for a great chat during the evening.Would I stay again? Yes
