Homey style guesthouse not too far from Mt. Seorak
Location is about 30 mins walk/5-10 mins bus ride from entrance of Mt. Seorak which is great. There's a bus stop less than 5 mins walk from the guesthouse. From Sokcho Bus Terminal, take bus 7/7-1 to Arcade Stop (if not mistaken), the bus stop is right in front of the Winter Olympic Mascots' statues. Take the same bus to get to Mt. Seorak, it starts running from 5.30 am. We arrived late at night whilst it was raining and the lady owner waited for us, she upgraded us from double room to family room. It was a really kind gesture and we were really grateful after a long day of travelling! Guesthouse a little run down but room and toilet were spacious and kept clean. Hot shower with good water pressure. Tiny towels provided but sufficient for us. Hairdryer also provided. TV worked well. There's water dispenser and microwave at the hallway. Simple breakfast of bread and jam prepared for us but make sure to wash up after yourselves. Overall, will definitely stay again!

Charming and cheap
This was just what I wanted and expected from the online description: Charming, cheap, and convenient to Seoraksan. Not the hotel's fault, but: I was there the last weekend of April and the whole area was pretty dead. Most restaurants closed, etc. I had seen reviews saying that in winter it was like that, but I wasn't expecting it in the middle of spring.
