We stayed here for a few nights and it was really great! Our room was small (but who cares) but it was very clean, bathroom was spotless! The kitchen is cozy and well-equipped. Small breakfast was included. The owner is very friendly and speaks good english. He is very helpful and provides lots of information about the City (eateries, stores,... More

Stayed in a room with a private bathroom (spotlessly clean and surprisingly large). For the price paid, the hostel was an absolutely perfect deal. - The friendly owner speaks good English, so all communication was smooth. - Bus station is some 5 minute walking distance, virtually "behind the corner". - There is no curfew, but security is taken care of...

I have stayed at Nahbi guesthouse twice, and I liked it a lot. It's located in the centre of the town, close to the tombs, and walking distance from the bus station. The dorm rooms and bathrooms are cleaned every day and there is enough room for suitcases. In addition, the guesthouse owner gives very good tips on tourist attractions.... More

I have stayed there on a handful of occasions, about 7-10 nights total. Each time TJ (bilingual) has been more than accommodating, even with needing to stay extra nights or arriving late because my flight was delayed. Rooms and bathrooms have always been very clean. I skipped out on the breakfast, but you can get a simple bfast for free,... More

This hostel is located in a fantastic central location, on a main street with easy access to shops and food. But the real star of the show at this hostel is the owner TJ and the other staff. He was always there to help our group out with directions, suggestions, and feedback on what we had planned to do. He'd... More

I stayed at Nahbi Guesthouse when I visited Gyeongju last summer. I found the hostel to be more than adequate and it had a true hostel vibe. The location is perfect. You are less than a 10 minute walk from all the major sites within Gyeongju proper and a short walk away from the bus station to take you away... More

Nahbi Guest House is the perfect place for those looking for cheap budget accommodation in Gyeongju. Owner TJ is very friendly and came running down the street with a peach to give me as I left the hostel! The free breakfasts and drinking nights were a nice social bonus. A short walk from the main bus depot. Highly recommended.

The hostel is in a good location in the center of the city near bus stops. The owner was friendly and a lot of information is provided for places and things to see in the nearby area. Check in is only allowed after 3:00, no exceptions. Which is because between 10:30-3:00 everyday you cannot be in the guest rooms or... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nahbi Guest House offers some of the lowest prices among South Korean guest houses.It is a low-budget hostel, for backpackers who want to meet and interact with other travelers from all over the world.We offer friendly service, a tonne of info about Gyeong-ju, and neighbouring cities and we are conveniently located in the down town area close to many attractions. We are clean and cozy, but definitely not your 5 star hotel. Please keep this in mind, before you select us.If you are looking for luxury, please don't make a reservation. If you're looking for international conversation, hostel facilities, and service with a smile, book away!Hello! My name is T.J. the owner of Nahbi. I opened this guest house so that backpackers could get together with others who travel all over the world freely, like a beautiful butterfly.I hope that you will meet good friends who come from various countries in this guest house and make good memories. Thank you. ... more   less
