This is a Trusted Review. Why?

A kindly owner and good feeling, and the place is just behind the bus stop to Seorak Park
Inner city Sokcho, the harbor and bus terminal are just around
We highly recommend this place!

I only stayed in the House Hostel for 3 nights, but had a great time!
Other reviews told me this was a good place to stay and they were right.
First of all, being welcomed by mr Yoo was very nice and he gave some really useful tips for sightseeing. The hostel looks very cosy and I immediatly felt like home. The room itself was good, nothing spectacular, but good and clean.
I only tried the free breakfast one morning, but it was good!
One last thing, when I left I wasn't too sure where the bus terminal was, as I had arrived by cab from a different terminal. Mr Yoo went out of his way to not only walk me there, but wait with my bags when I bought my last minute ticket.
That kind of gesture shows the overall mentality of the House Hostel.
Very recommended!

House Hostel was the most lovely hostel I have ever been to: ist decoration is just incredible! The owner was very helpful, answering all questions and even anticipating them in order to make our stay easier. He really cares for the guests! The room (private, with bathroom) was nice and spotless. I would definitely recommend this hostel for anyone who either wants to visit Seoraksan (our case) or to stay in Sokcho. In addition there are plenty of buses to Seoraksan and the bus stop is very close to the hostel.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It was great, except that I ended up owing the hostel a mysterious 4,000 won by the end of my stay, and the staff wasn't able to explain why. I'm not sure where it came from, but clearly that's not a big deal; it was the only fly in the ointment.

You could not find a better place to stay - anywhere!

Wonderful tasteful clean fun design, and the young English speaking Yoo bent over backwards to help far more than any I have met before. Perfect location, easy walk to everthing.. simply the best choice in Sokcho!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Wonderful stay!

I had chosen this hostel because of how beautiful it looked on the internet and the good reviews. Those reviews are true!
It is indeed value for money, with the little I paid for. Free breakfast of bread, coffee, cornflakes. Free laundry and drying, free internet access (wireless in lobby common area and wired in room with long lan cable), free bike rental, hairdryer, fridge, toileteries, etc...What else can one asks for? :)

Mr Yoo, the manager, was a friendly and helpful guy. It was my very first trip to Korea and the first place I stayed. Felt like home away from home!
