Host Family

 

These are Korean families who will let you stay in their home for a reasonable cost. You’ll enjoy their knowledge of the city where you’re located, and you’ll enjoy their homemade dishes. Everything comes together in this experience, so you can totally immerse yourself in Korean culture.

Usually, you’ll have a bedroom for some privacy. These families like to meet strangers and practice their English with you. For a short-term room, expect to pay at least 30,000 ₩ per person per night. You should know that the price decreases over short periods.

You can find accommodation on www.homestaykorea.com.

Yeogwan

 

These accommodations are affordable, especially because there is no deposit. You will have a room that includes, most of the time, a bathroom and toilet. You’ll have to ask about the room’s amenities: sheet rental, there’s not necessarily a window, and the room will be no more than 8 m².

Furthermore, it is an accommodation designed for a rather long stay. In general, you can get this type of accommodation if you commit to at least 2 months.
