Great location, with the Yeosu expo and the Big-O only a few minutes walk away! They have a great lounge area as well and I didn’t feel like breakfast was too crowded, which sometimes happens at hostels. I met two wonderful girls and we went around the town together, it was such a great experience of a far corner of the country that I was hesitant to explore. Thanks for making it possible backpackers! :)

Close to Hero Street
I loved the stay, about 10 to 15 minute walk to Hero Street and maybe another 5 to the river front. The only thing I didn't like was the curfew at 11 AM and the quiet plea to be back by 1 AM. I didn't see this information on the, but it didn't really effected me because I came back by 1 AM. Still, I like the option to not worry about being back for a time. I don't think the curfew is taken seriously, but there it is.

Best guesthouse I stayed.
Having trouble to get to the guesthouse as their no train available in Yeosu but it walkable from Yeosu-Expo (about 15 min walk). It's not hard to find as the guesthouse is so well decorated and they even have a bar right opp them (you get a discount if you are staying in the guesthouse).

Comfortable place to stay
My friend and I were the only foreigner in the guest home as I think. Luckily, I know some Korean and speak little because 99% of them spoke Korean to us.. A host was trying to speak our language to make us understand..Even other guests thought we were Korean and asked us some question on the morning in the kitchen..It was so funny. I think this place is easy find and convenient to go to other attraction.
