location is quite nice, just 5 mins from the metro. the staff is super great, hardly can you find a person to speak fluent english in korea. It is very clean and the staff is always here for you to help, even some people can't cook their breakfast, the staff will come and give you a hand too. The warming system is new and nice, you can regulate your own temperature. I am sure i will stay here again if i visit Busan again !!

Thank you for your kind review. I also had a great time with you. Hope to see you again.


The hostel is well-located for seeing all the sights downtown. I usually do not stay in hostels that don't have a mixed gender dorm room, but this had the best location. Adding a mixed gender dorm or a private room would make it a more welcoming place for couples or mixed groups to stay. Also, it is more expensive than most hostels I stay at. The bathroom was smelly and out of toilet paper a couple times. The atmosphere was kind of dull, but the breakfast of eggs, toast and cereal was great!

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you were uncomfortable while you stay at the hostel. As the policy, female and male can't stay together unless they are family. And about the bathroom problem, try to make it clean all the time.


Very nice and clean environment ! New facilities that is well maintained. Only the bathing cubicle is abit troublesome as the wet and dry area is separate.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you were uncomfortable with the bathing. In fact, better to be sepaerated for the dressing room and shower room. But if you feel inconvinience, try to fix it up.


Strange amount of rules and not much privacy in the bathroom, but the staff were nice and it was generally pretty clean.

I really enjoyed my stay at Blueboat Hostel Nampo. The hostel itself is really nice, and the staff was friendly and very helpful. The location is also really convenient, as it's a good base from which to explore Busan.

Thank you for your reveiw. It was great to have such a guest like you. You are very fun and nice. Hope to see you again.


Staff was friendly and the hostel is extremely nice. It is a bit cramped, but it has a homely feel to it. Met some great people there. Breakfast being provided was also a great part of this hostel. Location is decent in that it is close to a subway stop and close to the fish market.
