[Tour/Press article] The Style Guesthouse in Daegu

The Style Guesthouse is the newest addition to the small group of hostels that we have here in Daegu. Built over three months, and opened only in July this year, it is already making its mark on the Daegu tourist industry, with guests from all over Korea, and a few from further afield resting their heads here after spending the day touring our colourful city.

Conveniently located in the downtown area of Daegu, just a short walk from Jungangno Station (Line 1), Daegu Train Station, 영산감영공원, and Daegu’s Modern History Museum, there are limitless activities on the guesthouse’s doorstep for guests to explore. In fact the area surrounding the guesthouse is currently under plans to emphasise its historical importance within the city of Daegu, with plans to preserve and display the traditional hanok housing that can be found there.

The reasoning behind opening a new guesthouse in Daegu, despite there being four available to choose from, was to fill the gaps in service that these provide, and offer everything a guest could want or need under one roof. It is this aim that gives The Style a different feel than any other of the guesthouses I have visited here. Taking elements of design, influence, and style from travels around the world, the owners have succeeded in creating a modern, hip, stylish, and sharp environment that makes guests feel instantly at ease. More than anything, staff at the guesthouse want the guests to enjoy their time there in a relaxed, friendly, and calm environment; a place they can rest after their days out and about, but also explore the social and welcoming atmosphere that they always provide.

Built over three floors The Style is the biggest guesthouse in the city. With a total of 58 dormitory style beds, 2 twin rooms, and one private room, there will always be opportunities to meet people from around the world, and make new connections. However despite being so large, the guesthouse never feels cramped or busy due to its clever layout design. As most travellers will tell you, privacy is of upmost importance when staying in a guesthouse, no matter how social you may be. As a result of this The Style offers dormitory beds with curtains, thick plush mattresses, personal lights, plug sockets, and shelves for your belongings. There are also bathrooms on each floor, and plenty of room next to these to get ready for a night out in downtown.  At just 22,000won a night, it’s a bargain price to pay for the level of comfort provided. In addition, The Style regularly holds promotions and activities for you to take part in, so you may even be able to get a discount from your first or next stay there!

In addition to the two floors of dorms, the ground floor is where the real fun happens! Styled with an urban, industrial, and quirky design in mind, The Style coffee shop is the perfect hang out for guests, and anyone who fancies popping by. Fully equipped with modern computers, a huge TV, fantastic sound system, books, magazines, and games,  taking a break on one of the comfy sofas and wasting away the day with a coffee  is a hard thing to resist. Open all day, the barista can not only fix you a full menu of varied drinks, but if you ask nicely, will also cook you up something delicious to satisfy your hunger. To prepare you for your adventures around the city, using fresh produce, and made to order, you can’t find an American style cooked breakfast of this quality anywhere else. The Style also regularly host social events within the coffee shop area, and a range of alcoholic beverages are also available along with the coffee shop menu to purchase.

So if you’re looking for somewhere to stay on a visit to our city, need to recommend somewhere to a friend, or simply looking for somewhere new and interesting to spend a few hours once the weather gets colder, look no further. Drop by The Style Guesthouse at any time and have a chat with the staff and customers there, or check out their facebook page for more information.

How to get there: From Jungangno Station (Line 1), walk straight until you reach Daeha Pharmacy. Here turn left and continue walking along this street until you reach the elementary school. The Style Guesthouse is on your left directly after the school.
