Superb experience
Stayed here for 8 consecutive days and the experience is perfect. Best place for solo travelers and friends to stay at given the price. Towels, toothpaste, shampoo and shower gel are provided. The room is clean. The WiFi is fast. The host is friendly and not overwhelming. Other guests are very friendly and fun to talk to during my stay. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to walk from the nearest station Mangwon and Hapjeong, which is okay. The neighborhood is quiet but you can find some bars and restaurants operating in the midnight. Make sure to visit the local market nearby.

Best Guesthouse Ever!!!
I have stayed at Yooginong Guesthouse twice. The first time was for three weeks in 2016. This time was for three nights. Both times, I was blown away by how fantastic Yooginong is. The staff members (Noey, Oga, Yesun, etc.) are kind, generous, welcoming, and helpful. Every room feels clean and comfortable. It truly feels like a warm, comforting home, not a hostel. The kitchen, internet, and other facilities are all convenient and in good condition. I highly recommend you stay at Yooginong. I promise it will exceed your expectations. I love Yooginong Guesthouse!!!

The guesthouse front door was difficult to identify in the dark (I arrived after 9 pm). There was a sign on the roof but there were multiple doors, may be some were apts. There were no lockers in the room. There is only 1 bathroom (toilet and shower in one) on the first floor so when guesthouse is fully occupied you have to wait your turn, unlike other guesthouses where they have multiple shower/toilet stalls. Bed was clean and comfortable. Maybe the bed were nailed together but when another person moves in his bed (upper bunk) my bed (also upper bunk) shakes. I haven't experienced this in other guesthouses/hostels. Breakfast was very basic - corn flakes, white bread and milk. 2 minutes from convenience store or market. 5~10 mins walk to nearby subway stations.

Convenient, Comfortable and Clean!
Had a FABULOUS week at this very comfortable guesthouse. Noey, the manager is extremely responsive, most helpful in answering questions, and always goes the extra mile to please her guests. The beds have the quilt like comforter which makes it really cozy and comfortable when cold. The balcony off the rooms were convenient. It is located close to Hapjeong/Mangwon stations with lots of good places to eat and shop nearby. Airport bus access is very easy. Laundry for a small fee is available. The kitchen has all the conveniences to warm up food or cook. A self serve simple breakfast is included. I highly recommend the comfort and convenience provided by this "home away from home".
