Hello and welcome to the Hanjin International Hostel! We are an international hostel in Korea that welcomes all that wish to visit Gyeongju with open arms.

If you are already in South Korea, or if you are planning to visit Korea and are asking “Where to stay in Gyeongju?”, then the Hanjin Hostel is the place to stay. The hostel is situated in an ideal location near the train station, bus stops, shops, restaurants and various historic locations.

Gyeongju is in the North Gyeongsang Province, which might be an area of South Korea that you haven’t been to before, so if you want to visit then you are welcome to stay at our hostel in Gyeongsang.

Being an international hostel means that both locals and international guests always feel at home at the Hanjin Hostel, and facilities are provided such as a garden, communal area, additional blankets and pillows, washing service, toilets, showers and more. The garden is a great place to spend time, as it serves as a meeting place where you will hear fascinating stories from around the globe. We are sure you will have some interesting stories to tell as well!

By staying at our Hanjin Hostel, you can meet new people and make friends from around the world, explore the local shops, restaurants and sights, enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of Gyeongju, see wonderful performances, climb mountains and much more…


If you come as a group then you can share rooms and stay together; we have been a hostel in Gyeongsang for a while now, so we understand what backpackers and customers need. If there’s anything you want to ask or require during your stay, then simply let us know and we will help you.

The owner of our Hostel is called “Mr Clint Kwon” and he is a well known and knowledgeable tour guide in the Gyeongju area. He is always around the hostel and normally sits in the front office/ reception. If you need any help, or someone to talk to Mr.Kwon is here to help. He loves meeting new people and will most likely share a soju with you on an occasion or two. For more information on Mr.Kwon and his family, see Kwon family history.

Our hostel in Gyeongsang has been here for a long time, if you are interested in reading about our history then see Hanjin history.

Finally, our youth hostel in Korea has been in the newspapers, some guide and other press over the years. If you want to read about what press the Hanjin has been in, then see Hanjin press.
