staff very nice, good hostel good ambience clean , i recommand it
Great cafe that owns the hostel, with nightly korean/english meet up classes, but not a great hostel living space, just felt like I was staying at someone's crappy college apartment. Not super clean or nice and no windows in one of the bedrooms. Wouldn't stay here again.
The hostel was good, but unfortunately we join with the guy which we have booked girl room only :(

Generally a good place to stay. $100 fine for drinking in hostel and having to smoke on the street diminished my appreciation but if you don't have these vices ok.
The place was dirty. It's cheap but it would be nice if someone cleaned sheets and duvets. If you are planning to stay for just one night that's fine but I wouldn't recommend any longer.

This is a pretty cool joint which feels like a college dorm with a bunch of roommates and a large shared space...it is in a university district after all. The bathrooms aren't the best, but you get what you pay for. Mike was very friendly and helped me out a lot. Thanks!
Nice hostel, good price in good location. They do a free mini tutorial for basic Korean too. Mike is very helpful although seems like he is always in a rush to do something else!
receptionist is friendly and helpful. but the area/road around the hostel are dirty. good place to hangout at night.have many bars and drinking place and convenient store nearby. the hostel is not that clean..wifi provided..and the location is good.
Great little spot! Great hot shower, soft beds, good space, good kitchen area, free bread and even a little care package with butter, jam, coffee, earplugs + towels. Very clean and detailed spot,, the staff are really helpful too. highly recommend!!
The owner Mike is Great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!He is quite helpful and very easygoing as well! Nice to talk with him while my stay there. The room was clean, location is definitely ideal actually! very close to the subway and easy to get anywhere you need to go. Nice place!!!

It deffinetly was worth the price. The location was near by the subway and in the middle of bars and restaurants. But inside it was calm. There was a computer to use. The 'breakfast' was 24/7. When you check in you got a package with 3 towels, jam, butter, coffee and tee. Bread was always there to toast. The bike rent for 5$ a day was great!
I loved staying at this hostel. Why? Because Mike makes you feel at home and introduces you to your roommates. It makes it less awkward, I guess. If you have any questions or something, you can always count on Mike. He is always there to help you with anything. The atmosphere is amazing because people who are staying at the hostel want to meet people from around the world. Everybody is willing to talk to each other! Finally, it's a little bit tricky/confusing to find the cafe, but nothing more!
The owner of the hostel also owns a cafe, which offers free luggage storage and language learning session on weekday evenings. There are volunteers from both foreign countries and local universities helping to facilitate the learning session so it is actually very fun and interactive. Besides, simple bread and coffee are provided as breakfast. Do take note that they have only 2 restrooms so in the morning it is normal to queue up to use it.
located in a cool part of busan. Mike the manager is extremely friendly and does everything he can to make you feel welcome and tries, get you involved in a bit of korean culture. did have a bit of trouble finding the hostel though
Fabulous Hostel! Clean, well-maintained. Dorms are small and cramped and you have to pay for lockers but the location is right in the bar/student nightlife area of Busan and it is 3 min walk to the metro. Condiments for toast and unlimited bread are provided and a towel. The real star of the operation is Mike. He is really friendly and helpful. He goes out of his way to improve your stay and helps you make friends at the adjacent language exchange cafe.Many tnx for helping me with everything!
very low cost great for partying! downtown college area because of this, though, it can be a bit noisy at night. not too bad usually though. not enough bathrooms. just two for ~25 beds staff is great, lots of opportunity to meet new people
This place was great, with super energetic staff and fun travellers. The Cafe was a great place to mingle with locals and travellers and the language class is a great addition to help those who want to learn korean. The staff were good about changing my reservation and also gave me a bed to stay when I missed my flight which I am really grateful for.
