Overall a great location to stay at Busan. Very good location as it is very nearby places of interest. There's few mosquitoes in my room and I've gotten bitten 10 times. Seriously, Would appreciate if owners will take more active steps in eliminating mosquitoes in their guest house (some people get bitten some don't) Also, the breakfast area room is too small. Would be best if the shared using cookery to fry egg, please put 2 toaster instead of 1, other stuff is placed more strategic.


Very friendly and helpful staff! Good location, clean and nice dining/communal area too.


We barely spend time at our hostel because we were out a lot. It was clean, though when we arrived the fridge in our room still contained foodstuff of a previous guest.


Firstly, the stench of ammonia pervading the air throughout the hostel comes from the toilets. This smell is from some pipe leak that they are not fixing. Secondly, there are no screens on any windows so the place is filled with mosquitos which feast on you all day and night. Also, if you need to hang laundry you are graced by a stairwell to the roof filled with food trash. Lastly, the staff seems to act more rudely toward foreigners than other guests. Do yourself a favor and avoid staying here.

First they advertise about having a kitchen and it's not the case then the worst bed ever in a hostel. It's probably not there fault because it comes from the pipe but toilet and bathroom really smell odd. Most of the people working don't speak a word of English.


Very friendly and helpful staff, who often go above and beyond for the customers. It's the best value ever, and its location in Nampo-dong means never being bored. I seriously recommend this place to anybody visiting Busan!

Ok for a night. Bathroom really wreaks and everything is really basic. No real atmosphere, but fine just for a place to sleep I guess.

Hello~! We were very so sorry. We had a big problem about the bad smell from toilet. So, we made a lot of efforts to solve a problem. Finally, we have solved every problem last week. If you have a chance next time again, the bad smell will be no problem. Thank a lot your advise. ^^


Men's toilet reeeeeks. Good location for the train station/fish market though.


I think the shower rooms and bathrooms could have been cleaner and provided with shelves and hooks
