Seogwipo is a coastal city in Jeju Island. It is the second largest metropolis on the island, after Jeju City, but is the better choice for a rural vacation. My friends and I stayed at the Choi Hostel in Seogwipo during our visit. If you are planning a trip to Jeju, I highly advise that you choose Choi Hostel as your accommodation!
Choi Hostel: My Review
So, how was my stay at Choi Hostel? What were the staff like? How big was the room? Was the bathroom clean? Was it expensive? Perhaps these are some of the questions you have if you’re planning a comfortable stay in Jeju Island. Read on for my personal experience staying at the Choi Hostel in Seogwipo City.

One of the most important things to consider when choosing accommodation is the location. Choi Hostel is adjacent to a city bus stop and is easy to reach from Jeju airport, and return to after a day of exploring. Furthermore, there are many restaurants, supermarkets and convenience stores located nearby for easy access. Additionally, Choi Hostel is nearby some popular island activities and tourist hotspots.
The Maeil Olle Market, Lee Jung Seob Art Museum, Jeongbang and Cheonjiyeon Falls are just a few exciting places a short distance away. In fact, the Maeil Olle Market is walking distance from the hotel! During our 4-night stay, we visited many times for souvenirs and to try street food.

On arrival at the hotel, we received a warm welcome from staff and were guided to our room. When we got to our room I was amazed by the first sight. The room was so spacious, clean and well-organized. We had a living room area, kitchen, bathroom and a large bedroom with 2 beds. We stayed as a large group of 6 people and the room size was fine for us.
My friends and I ate dinner once on the rooftop terrace and we loved exploring up there. It is super cozy and the perfect place to relax after a long day of travel.
We booked 1 room for 4 nights, which cost approx. 314,000 won in total. As there were 6 of us sharing the room, we split the bill and paid only 52,000 won each. What’s more, you can check price comparison sites as well as the hotel’s homepage for offers and discounts.
Overall, I was very satisfied with my stay at Choi Hostel. I liked its location, very accessible and very convenient. For 5 days of fun in Jeju, a comfortable hotel and easy access to the places we wanted to visit, it was totally worth the money. I was pleased with our room and the service of the hotel. The hotel is owned by native English speakers too, so you don’t have to worry about language barriers. Honestly, next time I come to Jeju, I’d like to stay here!
