What a great time we had staying at Backpacker's for two nights! We were three western students seeking to relax and have fun with locals in Seogwipo, and it's exactly what happened. The first night we arrived, it took us 30 minutes to end up singing Korean songs while having drinks and snacks with other residents from the guesthouse. And...

Very helpful staff who offered my lots of suggestions on what to do and showed me maps online on exactly how to get there. Clean and comfortable beds/pillows, bunks are awesome and private, the little lamp and outlet in each bunk is appreciated! Literally steps away from the Olle 7 Trail. Perfect location for exploring. My ONE complaint/suggestion was to...

As backpacker's go, this is probably the nicest one I've stayed in. The staff are extremely friendly and the quality of the accommodation is top notch. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and there's lockers to keep your belongings safe while you explore the island. Every evening there's a BBQ of some sort in the common area. We...

Awesome place. Backpackers is absolutely great. Super clean, perfect outdoor area for hanging around, and an AMAZING staff. My favorite part though might've been the INCREDIBLE pressure on those showerheads!! I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone staying in Seogwipo.

What an amazing spot, friendly staff who went out of their way for our group of 50 plus, again and again. They provided us with a discount for our group booking, a shuttle service to and from our daytime destination and even a late night drop off at a local club (approximately a 20 minutes drive away). The rooms are...

Had a great time at backpackers. The facilities are wonderful. The rooms have comfy beds, a great shower and big lockers. There's a fun courtyard area with sun chairs and picnic tables. The staff was super helpful, they provided transportation for us to and from fields AND to a party saturday night.

Foreigners might feel more comfortable here, as this is the place where staff really speak English (not like many other places in Jeju). I was really surprised to meet so kind people and have fun in the hostel lounge (which is actually a bar with a stage where people can perform with singing and playing some musical instruments). Location is...

Amazing, clean, extremely clean, everything is new, the staff is great, friendly and helpful, the wifi connection is great too... Though there were mostly Korean tourists in groups and it was hard to get to know new people there and there are not many things to do in Seogwipo, this is just what a solo tourist needs to keep in...
