Stay = 2 nights (10 and 11 Oct 2016)
We took the bus from Dong Seoul bus terminal to Sokcho Intercity Bus Terminal at KRW 17300 per head. House Hostel is near to the Sokcho Intercity Bus Terminal and not Sokcho Express Bus Terminal. It was about 2 hours ride.
From Sokcho Intercity Bus Terminal main exit, turn right and walk straight towards a traffic junction and cross the main road. Continue to walk straight and watch out for GS25 convenience stall. Once reached, turn and House Hostel is just one minute away.
We stayed here for 2 nights at triple sharing room with attached bathroom at KRW60,000 per night. I booked the room through email without any credit card deposit. It just based on trust. Really appreciate it and Mr Yoo, the owner, is a pleasant person always with a smile.
The room though not big but is adequately spacious for 3 of us. Bunk beds but acceptable. Clean and neat with comfort of hotel accessories provided. Kettle, hair dryer and TV. Wifi is strong.
Bathroom is clean and big that can accommodate a bathtub. Liquid soap and shampoo are provide. Hot/cold water pressure is strong. Towels provided. Everything works.
Breakfast is served on the ground floor. Simple bread with butter and jam. Cannot complaint with such a price, can we ?
Check-in is easy and owner will explain in details where to see and eat if you are first time in Sokcho. Most come to Sokcho because of Seroksan.
It is good value for money to stay in House Hostel. This place is clean and well maintained. A popular hostel in Sokcho. I like the cute small yellow car parked outside the hostel.
