Jeju Island, South Korea
The location is good as the bus terminal is close by and connects you to other places well. There are plenty of eateries and some shopping surrounding the hostel. The hostel is great in the sense that you can make your own drinks, cook your food and lounge with the tv or computer. Our room was simple and clean, however getting wifi connection from the room was a struggle after the first night. Kudos to Sue who was helpful and good-humoured. He answered my every question with ease and sincerity. Give U & I Guesthouse a go!
Busan, South Korea
For the price it is great value. Mr. Kim and his wife (Julie) are fantastic hosts; they run 2 guesthouses in Busan, and one night they took all their guests out for Korean BBQ and soju (a strong local drink). The area is a good location with many restaurants and cafes. it is close to the UN Cemetery (the only one in the world). It is also close to the wonderful (and cheap) Busan subway system, which can take you everywhere in Busan that you wish to go. My only complaint would be that the towels are too small but this is minor.
