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!


Lame spot. Friday night whisper town. Common room is in the middle of every room so you basically can't be loud after 9

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.


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


strategic location , few minutes walk from gwangbokro street and subway is nearby. conveniently to access around. the staff are friendly and very helpful. hostel is clean and facilities are great. breakfast (toast & bread, jam) , cereal , milk and water are provided


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.


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.


Excellent location and nearby the Nanpo station. However, I do not think Chinese people would accept the open style shower. You might need to pass through others for shower.


Will recommend and come again

The staff is extremely friendly and the breakfast offer was a dream.There is no curfew,everything is really modern with an own card key, so there are no worries about security.A little bit difficult was that there was not really enough place for everyone to eat breakfast (the sofa was used with chairs as tables).The other thing was the shower room for women(a little bit missing of privacy).The location is great(Busan tower 10mins away).Nights were a bit noisy through the outside (restaurants).

A very clean hostel and one of the few I've been to that isn't noisy at all. The location is great as well (unless you're looking for nightlife).


This is a great hostel with awesome location and atmosphere. The hostel is sytlish and I enjoy the breakfast a lot!
