Jeju Island is quite large with the main cities including Jeju and Seogwipo, so you can decide to base in either one on your trip. Let’s take a glimpse at my list of best hostels in Jeju and Seogwipo city to plan your trip easier.

Near the Jeju intercity terminal, Yeha Guesthouse is excellent if you plan to explore the island by bus. You can also easily get to Jeju Night Market, where you can buy street food and enjoy the local life.
The decoration in this guesthouse is simple but adorable. In addition to comfortable rooms, the place has a well-equipped kitchen with a full breakfast to start your day.
There’s a complimentary bottle of drinks or beer every night, so don’t miss out. My favorite part at Yeha Guesthouse is the dream card service, where you can send postcards to your future self.
This guesthouse also organizes a day tour for travelers, so there will be a discount for each person.

Regarding accommodation, each spacious room has air conditioning, and some airy rooms at this guesthouse have a balcony overlooking the Sanjicheon stream.
Also, you can enjoy a daily continental breakfast in the bar. After a long day of exploring, there’s no better place to unwind with drinks than a nice lounge.
Looking for a novelty experience? Why not stay at Mir Guesthouse? I seriously love the design of the guesthouse! It looks like a dragon’s head!
The unconventional architecture was inspired by the fascinating Yongduam Rock. Its exterior has a paint reminiscent of basalt rocks, and the rooms are designed with diamond-shaped windows.
There’s also a library leading to an open red-painted terrace above the building. You’ll love the cinema and music hall too.
For an extraordinary experience, you can climb up the viewing platform at the pinnacle of the building to watch sweeping views of the sea and the nearby mountain ranges.
From the platform, check out the planes coming in to land at Jeju international airport.
You&I Guesthouse is in the fun part of Jeju, with vibrant nightlife activities, but it’s still peaceful.
It’s an ideal accommodation choice if you plan to see the beautiful Yongduam Rock during sunrise and sunset.
The cozy little guesthouse offers dormitory and private rooms with welcoming decor and many warm colors on the walls.
Staying at You&I guesthouse, you’ll get a free breakfast including bread, eggs, peanut butter, and jam. It’s basic but great for budget travelers!
I also like that the kitchen has a dedicated corner for Muslims. If you want to dine out, head to nearby restaurants to savor the famous grilled black pork.
Entirely painted with blue colors from the outside, Jeju Guesthouse is a cozy and tranquil place. It has an excellent location so you can go downtown or to the beach easily.
Comfortable privates and dorm rooms with wooden bunk beds will surely make you feel at home. Besides complimentary breakfast, you’ll also get instant tea in some rooms. Sometimes you’ll see little kittens here, and they’re super cute!
