Location

The location of Yeha Guesthouse is really convenient. You can reach Jeju Bus Terminal within 3 minutes walk from Yeha Guesthouse. If you travel on a budget and would like to discover Jeju island on your own, staying near the main Bus Terminal is a good idea. From there, you can take different buses to visit different places on the island.

Also, there’s a bus stop just 1-minute walk from Yeha Guesthouse which can take you directly to the Jeju Night market and the center. I went to Jeju night market every day to buy street food and enjoy the local life.

Tips: You should buy T-money card when you first arrive in South Korea. With a T-money card, the price of each bus ticket is cheaper and it’s more convenient to carry the card with you.

If you don’t want to take the bus and just want to walk around the area, you can find plenty of restaurants and also a 24-hours convenience store near Yeha Guesthouse.

Facilities & Service

There are several free services at Yeha Guesthouse. For example, you can use a free washing machine with washing powder. However, you’ll need to pay for a Dryer at the reception to dry your clothes. Also, if you’d like to iron your clothes, you can ask at the reception to borrow Iron & Board.

I traveled to Tokyo before visiting Jeju island, so it was really convenient to wash my clothes, iron them and use them again.

Here are all the free services at Yeha Guesthouse:

The Room

I got a twin room for my stay at Yeha Guesthouse. The room is simple but has enough facilities such as TV, hairdryer, plugs, etc.

The toilet and bathroom are in the same room so it may be a surprise if you’re not used to this type of restroom. There’re toiletries so you don’t need to buy shampoo or toothpaste while staying.

The wifi connection is really good at Yeha Guesthouse. I could use it in my room and in the common room.

How to get to Yeha Guesthouse?

From Jeju Airport

  • By bus (10 minutes): You can take the bus number 315, 331, 332, 343, 465-2 bus for 1,200KRW at Gate No.2 of the 1st floor, Jeju Airport and then get off at Hankuk Hospital (the bus stop after Jeju bus terminal). You can then walk to the Guesthouse in 1 minute. The disadvantage of taking buses is that if you have big luggage, it’s really difficult to bring your luggage down.
  • By taxi (5~10 minutes): As Yeha Guesthouse is not far away from Jeju airport, you can take a short distance taxi (Around 4,500KRW).

Elsewhere:

You can take a bus to Jeju Bus Terminal first and you can walk to the Guesthouse.

 

Tips for Jeju island, South Korea

  • Because you cannot use Google Maps in South Korea (Google Map didn’t show any routes for cars or walk), you should download Kakao Map instead.
  • You should buy a SIM card or rent an Egg wifi so it’s more convenient for your trip.
  • Plan your trip in advance so you know the best places to visit.

    As backpackers doing slow travel, whenever we visit a place, we always look for budget hostels and guest houses. Happy to note that Yeha Guesthouse is a budget accommodation and has received an endorsement of good stay by the Korea Tourism Organization. Looking at the pictures and facilities shared and having stayed at so many similar properties, I can say that Yeha Guesthouse does come across as a preferred choice for our visit to Jeju Islands.

    Yeha Guest House looks like a nice place to stay in Jeju. Like the fact that it is centrally located and it is near the Bus terminus which makes it easy to move around the city. The place looks so neat and with so many amenities. Free breakfast and the free drink is indeed a bonus.
