As a guesthouse located in Gyeongun-dong, Jongno-gu, Namhyundang is a traditional Korean house built more than 100 years ago; this is the reason 70-80% of the guests are foreign tourists who wish to experience the tradition of Korea. One of the regular guests is a British national who has frequented the place for the past three years. He even left some of his clothes in the guesthouse for his next visit. Both the owner of the pension and his son are architects, and they saw to it that the rooms are well-insulated by coating the walls with a thick layer of natural red clay since most traditional Korean houses are not insulated enough. They take pride in their rooms and feel that their work was worthwhile whenever guests suffering from insomnia had a good night's sleep thanks to the red clay. One of the most outstanding features of the guesthouse is the large front yard, which is often used as a venue for concert, first birthday party, seminar, and year-end party. Until November before it gets too cold, breakfast is also served in the yard. Some guests have a barbecue party with other guests at night to socialize while enjoying the food.
