Endorsed as Good Stay by the Korea Tourism Organization, Yeha Guesthouse is a budget accommodation for travelers seeking a budget stay with a convenient location in Jeju Island, South Korea.

The location

The location of Yeha Guesthouse is convenient. You can reach Jeju Bus Terminal within a 3-minute walk from Yeha Guesthouse.

If you travel on a budget and like to discover Jeju island on your own, staying near the main Bus Terminal is a good idea.

You can take different buses to visit other places on the island.

Also, there’s a bus stop just a 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 a T-Money card when you first arrive in South Korea.

With a T-money card, the price of each bus ticket is lower, and it’s more convenient to carry the card with you.

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

The 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 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 a 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 good at Yeha Guesthouse. I could use it in my room and the common room.
