However by far and away the reason you should book this place is the proprietor, Mr Yoo. He has excellent English language skills and is so very helpful. He told us everything we needed to know to get the...

We stayed in The House Hostel for 2 nights during a recent winter trip to Sokcho. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Yoo, the general manager, who very kindly offered us lots of advice on buses, hikes and eating options from within walking distant of the hostel. He was such a gentleman and a wonderful host. The hostel itself is...

I went during early November and it was cold. I really love the heated flooring. The room was also spacious and clean. Water dispenser is available at every floor and locker is available for us as we checked out before hiking Mount Seorak. The Manager in charge also briefed us on the foods for us to try out when we...

We stayed here for one night. The hostel was a short walk away from the busterminal and very easy to find.

We've been travelling for 12 months now, and the House Hostel could be the best hostel we have stayed at during this time.
