    An absolutely brilliant place to stay. We (a group of four friends) stayed at the property a month and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Lee (Taeyong) who is in charge of the property was an absolutely fantastic host, working very long hours to do all he could for his guests! Having access to clothes washing facilities was a life-saver in the heat of the summer! In a safe and friendly neighbourhood with close links into popular tourist places, I'd return to stay in a heartbeat!
