Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel is a 5min walk from the nearest metro station from the Banwoldang Station. The staff are really friendly and super helpful. The room, was actually a pleasant surprise, almost a kind of Japanese feel about it. The only thing that was a little bit annoying was the lighting control panel. Instead of making things easy, it was a faff (a pain) to operate. The room was clean and there was plenty of room to move around. During my stay, one of the members of staff tried to help me out re the storage lockers in the station. The storage lockers for some reason require a South Korean mobile number, so they can be operated, which of course I didn't have. So they tried to help the best way they could. So if that person reads this. For the lockers that require a phone number. You can actually put any number into it. Just as long as you remember the number you use. When I say any number, it has to start with '01093' and then put any other number in. But thanks for your help. Also there's a large supermarket across the road, which was really handy.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Casual House Sono. I had a spacious private en-suite room on the 3rd floor, which was pretty basic but had everything I needed for my short stay in Daegu. Toiletries were provided and replenished when I asked for more. The staff were very welcoming, and considering I don’t speak any Korean we were able to communicate effectively. The hotel is a good 8 minutes walk from both Myeongdeok & Banwoldang metro stations, and I’d probably say around 20 minutes (depending on how fast you walk) to the main shopping/eating hub of Daegu. I did not use the laundry facilities here, but my friend did, and she had no complaints. Considering this hotel is also a hostel, it is incredibly quiet and I was not disturbed by any noise. If you’re looking for decent accommodation which is good value for money, then I would highly recommend that you stay here.

First of all, this hotel is also known as "Casual House Sono". If you use Google, this name pops out more often. We decided to take taxi from Dongdaegu stn to the hotel and skipped the metro knowing that there were no lift or escalators (common in SK). The nearest metro exit is a good 10 mins walk. There's a big supermarket opp the hotel but not much restaurants or eateries. Staff was helpful but could only speak limited English. Our Suite room was located on the 2nd floor together with the dorms. There's a Kitchen and game room on the same floor as well. Suite room size was alright for 3 people and the toilet size was larger than usual hotels. Beds and pillows, however, were not comfortable. The platform bed frames had sharp edges and if you're not careful, you'll hurt your lower legs when you knock onto them. Suggest the hotel to provide extra pillows as well. For guests who stayed for 2 days or more, you can get free mineral water from counter.

The Hostel is easy to get to from the train station, you can either catch a bus or a train and it is a very short walk. Because it is close to a train station and major bus route, you can pretty much get anywhere from here. My room, the kitchen, bathroom and breakroom were all clean and comfortable, I wouldn't hesitate to return based on the cleanliness of the hostel. The beds all have good curtains and a reading lamp so you can have privacy. If you need to cook things there is a stove and a microwave and a fridge. There is also comfortable seating, I ended up often studying in the downstairs lobby area where there were comfortable chairs in the evenings. The staff are very friendly and helpful, we communicated pretty well just using a translation app. I always had good experiences when speaking to the staff. The only downside for me was that the laundry facilities weren't convenient. There was only a small 1/2 load washing machine for guests, no dryer or washing line and the washing machine runs for half an hour. I stayed for 5 days and I was travelling around Korea for a month with 2 pairs of pants and 5 shirts for everyday wear, I needed to do laundry. As it was September, it was hot and humid and I was often hiking so my shirts were pretty sweaty and smelly. I had to do 2 loads of washing because of the size of the washing machine and one of my shirts still had stinky armpits afterwards because of the short cycle. Because there was no dryer or place to dry clothes, I spent the entire day (9am-6pm) in the break room with my clothes and socks draped over chairs to dry them. My knickers and bra were hung up on a makeshift washing line over my bed. By 6pm my shirts, knickers and bra were mostly dry but my pants and socks were still damp so I hung my pants in the little closet with the door open and strung my socks up on the washing line over my bed while I slept. Because of the issue with laundry facilities, I would hesitate to return here or I would choose a hostel with better laundry facilities. I hope that Sono Guesthouse improves its laundry facilities for guests, because honestly otherwise it was a very clean and comfortable place to stay where I would be happy to return.

I had a comfortable stay at this hotel. I arrived just before midnight and this was not a problem for the reception - the staff on reception were always friendly and wanting to help. They spoke a small amount of English, enough to communicate the basics but anything complex might have been tricky. The room was basic but comfortable and clean - there was a strange system where water from the shower if it was at the wrong angle seemed to run off the bath and onto the bath room floor so the bathroom got very wet very quickly. There are communal areas and a kitchen which was also comfortable and clean. However it was not at all sociable when I was there - I did not really see any fellow travellers apart from briefly at reception. Location was convenient - the 401 bus stops just down the road so it is easy to reach from the airport - and a taxi at 11pm was under KW10,000. Its within walking distance (well, probably about 30 mins) of some of the main shopping streets and is situated in a relaxed low rise area. Note that there are check in time restrictions if you are staying in a dorm room (for the benefit of your fellow dorm mates!). A solid choice if you are staying Daegu!

We, my wife and I, stayed five nights for sight seeing Daegu and Gyeongju. The hotel location is good and convenient to stay. Top Mart, a large super market, is just across the street, several local Korean restaurants are within walking distance. Room was clean and there was bathtub in the bathroom. Laundry machine was available at the shared kitchen. We could stay comfortably.

Stayed three nights. GOOD POINTS-Good location, handy for transport, Staff lovely- keen to help. NOT SO GOOD POINTS- Rooms not very clean- floors very dirty. Lots of long black hairs everywhere- we both have short hair. Holes in towels. Hall ways very dirty- not hoovered when we were there. As I said in title you get what you pay for and this is a cheap hotel.

I stayed here recently with my two adult daughters. The reception area is nice, basic but clean and bright. Our room had a separate area for kitchen with sink, fridge and microwave. the bedroom had a single and double bed. A bit cramped but normal for Korea, I think. The en-suite was nice, clean and modern. If I had a criticism it would be that there was no place to hang your towels. The beds were rock hard as were the pillows. The breakfasts finished at 8.40 am, which when you are on holidays is a ridiculously early time. We made it on the final morning. There was nothing to eat there except eggs and toast, which we cooked and served ourselves, so we hadn't missed much! Overall, I would say it was worth the money and other than the beds and the breakfast it was fine.
