Cons: The beds are not really comfortable and the mattress cover is not fixed. So you can end up sleeping directly on the mattress if you move during your sleep like me. The wifi was not always very stable so if you need it to work it may not be the best
9.0 Excellent
Pros: I booked a single bed in a 4-bed dorm room. The bed was a bunk bed, with a fair enough good mattress. The bed comes with its own sockets, light and privacy curtains. For this dorm, there is an ensuite bathroom (Italian style) with a toilet and a sink. The bathroom is clean, with a power shower and hot water. There are body wash and shampoo disposals. The dorm has lockers. The communal area is great, with many many tables and chairs, computers, board games. It closes at 11:00pm though. I did not use the wifi, so I cannot comment on it. They provide you with a towel. It does include an excellent breakfast from 08:30am to 09:30am (cereals, tea, coffee, bread with jams and nutella, orange juice). Free water refill. Free tea. The hostel is well located, close to some spots to eat out and mini markets. 20sec walk to Intercity Bus Terminal. 10sec walk to bus heading to Seroaksan National Park. 7/8min walk to the fish market. The staff is friendly and speaks a basic english if needed. I would definitely recommand this place for a short or long stay.
Cons: You get into your room with your access card, and turn on the power of the room with the same card. So you can get a situation where you have no power in the room while you are sleeping because on of your roomate left with his access card that was used for the power. The communal area closes at 11:00pm. Breakfast only from 08:30am to 09:30am.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Best host ever. I think I've never felt more welcomed in a hostel like I felt in this one. He was extremely nice, showed me everything I needed, gave me all the information, even a welcome fruity drink, and all of it without speaking a word of English. It was a really good experience, but the people from the hostel helped to it too. There was only me and 3 other backpackers staying in the whole hostel and we spent the night together in the terrace and it was a super lovely experience. The hostel is close to one of the beaches and I went there for a morning swim every day. The bus stop that takes you to the main attractions is just in front of the hostel.
Cons: Everything was perfect.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Clean, simple but nice breakfast, close to the beach, really close from Intercity bus terminal, bus to go to Seoraksan just outside
Cons: Hard to communicate with the host, he wasn't much around and didn't speak much English. The door of the room can't be locked (the don't give you any key) and there's no lockers on the rooms. But the city is quite quiet and chilled so I don't think should be a problem

Cons: N/A
9.3 Excellent
Pros: This is a notable hotel resort located on a spit of land with ocean on three sides. The ocean view was spectacular and room was spacious and comfortable. The only downside was having to pay a water park entry fee in order to use the main hotel pool.
Cons: Having to pay the pricey water park entry fee (around 50 USD per adult) in order to use the pool felt like a total rip-off. This is something the hotel ought to change.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was great, but way overpriced to the point that eating locally was just a better bargain. The ONLY positive to the breakfast was the convenience of having it in the hotel.
Cons: Price of food within the restaurant. Other than that, AMAZING HOTEL AND LOCATION!!!!! Can't wait to go back.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our room was awesome, great balcony, 2 double beds that were so comfortable, 2 toilets and a huge bath tub and 2 TVs, very nice and clean. Aĺso down stairs there is a 7 eleven, games room, Loteria and Angelina's coffee. Great walk down to the ocean and around the resort.
Cons: After paying so much for the room, you also have to pay to use the swimming pool, for a family of 4, this means paying over a hundred thousand Korea won.
5.5 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: Check in process is not acceptable! Every single thing is extra charged.
5.5 Okay
Pros: location is good
Cons: very small and kid level infinity fool. roomservice including towel and facilities is very bad.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful seaside resort location, perched on elevated ground. Nice view of the area with the walk around the resort. Unfortunately, the beach activities are not open until summer holidays so the beaches are quiet and we could not enjoy the water.
Cons: The F&B choices are rather limited and some of the stores opened late or closed early. The Lotteria fast food was not opened until 2:30pm in the weekends and the staff told us the hamburger was sold out at 6pm on Mon evening, which left us puzzled. Even the hotel cafe last order was at 8:30pm.

Pros: We arrived in Sokco quite late at night and we stayed at James Blue Hostel for only 1 night, coz the next day ee moved to another guesthouse at Seoraksan for our hiking plan.

Cons: The booking says that credit card is accepted but James would only take cash. We were going to leave Korea and planned it so that we would have enough for the last 2 days for our need. Because of this we didn't have enough and had to pay more fee to get more cash. Definitely didn't plan on that.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: James is really cool and super friendly guy.

Pros: Very homey
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Alright hostel quite close to the Seoraksan Park - about an hour walking or 10mins by bus. The bus stop is just outside. It’s a little bit hidden - you need to pass the Youth Hostel on the left and go behind it. The room was basic but clean and nice enough. The owner was great, flexible with the hours and didn’t have problem with us being late, let us store our backpacks for a day after the check out and use the toilet and hairdryer after we came back for it after a day of trekking. You also have a basic breakfast in the price- tosts, jam, cereal, milk, coffee and tea.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Big room with floor heating, which you can control. Great location.
Cons: Old and dirty sponge for cleaning dishes in room.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location for visiting Seoraksan, the bus 7-1 stops just a few metres away from the hotel. If you don't mind walking it takes about 40 min to the park's entrance. Super market and a few restaurant are also nearby. The room was specious and clean with a kitchenett fited. Equipment for fetching a light dinner or breakfast all provided. The young man who runs the reception speaks good English and is very helpful.
Cons: The water tempreture of the shower wasn't steady. It took really long until the hot water started running and with few cold water breaks during the shower :( Not that pleasant when you have spent the day hiking on the mountains in a crispy November day... Also the room didn't get really warm during the evening, there has been no floor heating or any other type of :-/ A heating blanket was though under the bed sheets, which I used very thankfully :)
7.0 Good
Pros: Environment is cozy and relaxing. And it’s pretty close to the bus stop, convenient.
Cons: We needed to get up early for hiking, so we asked for preparing breakfast earlier, at first they refused to do it. Though eventually they did prepare for us. But it would be better if they can make breakfast time more spontaneous.
6.3 Good
Pros: Place was quiet, just as I expected as it's near to Seoraksan. Bed was comfy and room was a bit spacious than I thought. They provided all, like hair dryer, simple breakfast, water, tea, microwave, etc. Owner has a dog, and the dog is friendly. However, I feel bad for the dog because he was chained all day.
Cons: Need to upgrade the bathroom. The shower was weirdly placed and installed, and so when you turn it on, it'll spray the water everywhere. You cannot adjust the height or the direction of the water. Owner did not talk much. They are korean family who have been living there I guess.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff were really friendly and Ted even booked me a taxi to take me to a local bathhouse. He also provided me with information on how to get to the national park on foot. The location itself, although rundown, is super convenient. 40 minutes by foot or 4 minutes by bus and your outside the information centre to the park. The area is really quiet and a relatively short bus ride from town.
Cons: Unfortunately, the local area is quite rundown and dilapidated.
5.0 Okay
Cons: The town was a ghost town. The motel was clean, but the people could nog sprak english and no breakfast.

There is a Seven Eleven nearby, which is extremely useful. There is a bus stop just outside the hotel, for Sokcho-bound buses.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Best location to enjoy Seroaksan (5 mn walk from the entrance of the Park). Nice 'british looking' hotel, gorgeous breakfast - you don't want to miss it! Helpful staff who gave us very good advice about bus routes and schedule.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: I loved that it was in the middle of the park ! We started visiting right after we arrived ! The hostel is in the middle of the mountains and waterfalls. Our room had a bathtub and a really really comfortable bed
Cons: Even is the location is great we had to go there by taxi because there is almost no buses to take you there. And after visiting the park we were craving but the restaurants of the hostel were already closed (it was 8.30) and way too expensive anyway. So we tried to go to the 7eleven close by but it was closed also. So we had to walk 30min in the dark Forrest to get to the closest convenience store. We met a boar on the road and we got so scared.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great location near the national park. Breakfast buffet very extensive. Friendly staff. Convenient beds and bathroom.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: View of the mountains out the front door and out our bedroom window were breathtaking, the fun British decor with photos of Maoist important Royals, the closeness to Seorak Park with the hiking trials,cable car ride and places to eat. Lovely grounds in front. We had chosen a traditional Korean room. The concierge heard of our trouble sleeping on the floor and kindly gave us another room for our second night with for a very comfortable nights rest! Real beds! The coffee from the dining room was excellent! Great shower and tub! Greatest location! We could walk to the park within 10 minutes!
Cons: Our first night on the floor in a traditional Korean Room was very tough because we are not used to sleeping on a hard surface, so we both had trouble sleeping. Bit we were helped with that with a change for the second night’s stay! Very good service at the fro y desk!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The location is great - a 2 minute walk to the National Park. Views from the window were amazing. Nice bathroom.

Location near national park: two bus stops or 40min walking distance to the entrance. We could also store our luggage after check out. Underfloor heating. Good Value for money.
Cons: The surrounding area was like a ghost town (probably because it was Chuseok Holidays) and there are no good restaurants or convenience stores around.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff were extremely friendly. They were helpful in giving details about the Ulsanbawi trail and showing us what Seoraksan is like during winter, encouraging us to visit again. The kitchen has an outdoor feel even though it’s enclosed which allows you to view the trees leading up to one of the trails. The laundry is free but keep in mind you have to air dry it. I would love to come again! :)
Cons: The doors were not sound proof which allows you to hear kids running. The bottom toilet seat won’t stay up (problem for men).

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This hotel is really good. I arrived to early to check-in but the staff gave me the room anyway. The lady was very nice and helpful. The room size is great and they provide everything you might need, kettle included. The breakfast was good because I could choose among sliced bread, strawberry jam, bananas, ramen, orange juice, tea, coffee and you could eat as much as you wanted. The location was great and with the city buses you can reach every tourist attraction you want, even Seoraksan National Park (40 minutes).

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Facilities, convenience, kids area, water park.
Cons: I liked it, but if i just choose, ac unit is in the window room with the bed, so the kitchen and back room ondol room for really stuffy and hot
6.8 Good
Pros: Comfortable bed
Cons: There was a hair on the bed. A little bit noisy in the midnight.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Location
Cons: The hotel info said there was a pool but there wasn't. We had to use the pool nearby water park which costed us £35 per person for a swimming pool! Even kid's price is £30! They should make that more clearly on booking.com website. I travelled with 9 years old and the swimming pool was the only reason why I booked This hotel. So it was a shock to pay over £100 for three adults and one child. One of adults received 50% discount due to his disability and the rest were with hotel guest discounts. The room will not be cleaned during your stay. We stayed for two nights. They didn't clean the room.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: It has kitchen and convenience store in the resort , staff are helpful although having difficulty to communicate in English.
Cons: No information are given in English , even when we want to go down to town which is close no one could explain while no information for foreigner . In fact upon check out time , while we explore the place by ourselves, we found out there was local bus with downtown route that stop at the water park which is only walking distance to hotel
3.7 Mediocre
Cons: blood stains on the inner bed sheet... showed the sheets had not been changed, and my wifes parents in the other room had to have the entire bed linens replaced due to lots of previous guest HAIR. Also, the rooms are auto set to 30Degrees Celcius when no room key has been inserted to activate customer controls... which meant it was between 85-88 Degrees when we entered the room... opening the window cooled things off quickly, thankfully. the facilities were lacking even a sundries store, and we had to drive over a mile just to get sodas and snacks for the room. I had thought ~$100/room/night was a good deal, but now I know that its cheap because of the off season and staff really don't make an effort to take care of the rooms or the customers.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: it was just ok....not the best. I like that they cater for kids
Cons: that they don't clean rooms daily
