Where to stay in Jeju Island?

11:20:00 PM 17 Comments A+ a-


Jeju Island is a lovely place that even the local Korean themselves would like to visit it especially couple and newlyweds. If you've been planning your trip to South Korea and Jeju-Do is in your itinerary, and you're wondering exactly where to stay for the first time, well you're at the right place reading this :))

I just came back from South Korea last week, and I couldn't forget my wonderful stay in Jeju-Do in this strategically located guesthouse, Sum Guesthouse Jeju Aiport.


Sum guesthouse is located near to the airport, and it's in the center of Jeju City. Getting to Sum Guesthouse is easy, take Bus No. 100 at gate 2 to Jeju Bus Terminal station. You don't need to worry about which station to get down, because there is a screen showing english name :) After getting down, across the road turn right and then turn left, you will see a small orange sign of Sum Guesthouse on the corner. So this is how the terminal looks like -


This bus terminal is like a final station of all bus, every bus will need to come back to this station, so if you're lost, you don't have to be worry :)

Not only a good location, they offer a very clean and comfortable environment, with computer and dining tables at the reception area in the lobby.



There are some house rules applied, I like the first one that you should say Hello to every guest in the house :D It makes the whole place becoming so friendly. Hair dryer in room is not allow to be used after 10pm, respect is fair given to everyone, who will want to be awake by hair dryer in the middle of the night right? However you still can find one in the lobby after that hour.


There are quite some parking space along the alley if you plan to drive in Jeju-Do. Washing machine is available at the rooftop, and I love the breakfast they provided! Toast, fried egg, omelette, scramble egg, you get to cook it yourself, and what more is that cup noodles are free for breakfast too ;))

We stayed here 2 nights in the 8 bed dormitory rooms, look at how spacious it is with lockers and personal plug point. Well organized room with high consideration. You don't need to fight for charging point, and you don't have to afraid of leaving your precious phone charging overnight so far away from your bed. They offer 2 bed dorm, 4 bed dorm, 6/8 dorm and 8 dorm for women.


Surprisingly there're quite a lot of Koreans staying in this guesthouse, you will see many of them drinking, eating and chatting until late night in the lobby, perhaps, feel free to know some Korean friends :D

On the last day, we need to get to airport before 7 in the morning, despite of the early timing, we managed to have some self service toast too because everything has been prepared, just make sure you clean whatever plate that you used.


We took a cab to the airport that morning as we're running out of time waiting for the bus, it wasn't expensive with the cost of less than KRW 5,000.

I've been to quite a lot of guesthouse, and SUM guesthouse is so far one of the best I could say! :)) One last thing to shared about SUM Guesthouse is that they offer quite affordable tour as well, look at the prices, so why not SUM?
