Really lovely and comfy-feeling hostel. Have to be very, very early in the morning to actually see the 8-10am breakfast. Coffee, juice and jam were all gone prior to 8am, bread and eggs gone by 8.30.

Hi Korea Hostel was a pretty nice hostel!! Only stayed for one night, but it was enjoyable!! One thing that surprised me though was that the rooms were really small! I could barely get around . Also, the shower room....just beware because there was nothing to really separate you and the other girl taking a shower...so I was seen naked haha. Not a big deal, just not something I'm used to ^^ Don't get me wrong, I had a good time there! Would definitely stay there again!! :)

Thank you so much for your review!! Much appreciated!! Well yeah thats true, showering together in my opinion is almost like a culture here in Korea but like the saying when in rome do like romans :) Yeah if you ever come back to Busan again feel free to contact us directly and maybe we can give you special offer. Once again Thank you, Mayang

I had a wonderful stay at Hi Korea! It is 2 minutes walk from the beach! And the beach is awsome! This hostel is nice, clean, friendly. There are many boards with what you can do in Busan. And there is a lot to do. The only downside is there are too many few bathrooms: only 2 toilets and 2 showers for the whole hotel. But there is a wash machine and dryer you can use for a couple of wons!

The hostel is at a great location, wonderful atmosphere, and clean. Everyday they have staff cleaning the location. But the only down side was the toilet which is situated outside the hostel area (in the hallway), and the showers, they only have one shower for each gender. So, one shower, two toilets per gender....shared between all the guests and staff at the location...... but the rooms were nice.

Clean and includes free breakfast, but wifi wasn't working. A cheap place to stay close to bus lines and has a cute kitty to pet!

This place was great. Nice staff, always ready to help and enhance your traveling experience. The cleanest hostel I've been to in Korea. I only had 2 concerns. The first was that there were only 2 showers, 1 for females and 1 for males. The time we went, the hostel was booked at 95% with women and so shower time was definitely a drag. Also, every room is locked with a security code system, which is great but every time the door would open, the security system would make a beeping noise.

thank you for review, much appreciated!!! Well it's really unfortunate about the shower room, hope the next time you come to Busan you can stay in our 2nd hostel and we hope that we can provide you for the better :) Once again thank you Stacy. Cheers, Mayang

This is going to be a complete bomb. I had fully intended to stay here the night of June 7th during a weekend trip to Busan. Booked 3 weeks ahead. I was already in Busan on the 6th during a busy 3 day weekend. On the 6th I tried contacting HiKorea 3 times by phone and once by email to confirm my reservation the next day. No response. On the 7th, I called again. Not 2 hours after check-in time on the 7th they finally called saying they "lost" my reservation due to computer failure. Not reimbursed

Fortunately for me, I could easily find the location but it would be rather hard for foreigners who are not familiar with local regional signs or maps. I like the cleanness of the bed very much and I also enjoyed playing with the cat there. Cat's name was sand or something. Lol. The atmosphere was not bad and U like the quiteness . And it is quite near from the beach. I want to visit here again in the near future

Hi! Thank you for your comment. Back Sa Jang (it means beach) is so cute! If you have a chance to visit Busan, please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you so much:)

I'm very satisfied with my stay at HiKorea! The staff is excellent, always nice and helpful. The dorm was pretty small, but worked just fine. Each bed also has a curtain, which is great when you want some privacy. Location is good, about 5-10 minutes walk from the subway and even shorter to the beach. All if the interior is clean and in good shape, definitely one of the most well-kept hostels I have stayed in. The cool house cat is a great bonus!

I'm not put excellent for the location because Haeundae is far for everything else that the beach. But, this hostel is very friendly it's my second time in this hostel. For a price cheap it's a good hostel: Easy to find it, close the beach, good breakfast...

I recently stayed at Hikorea with a small group of friends for a sports tournament we were having in Busan. Overall I enjoyed the hostel and I would stay again if friends were there. The location is perfect and the staff is nice, as well as the common room being comfortable and laid-back. The biggest downside to the hostel is the heat in the rooms. Even though there are vents, it still gets extremely hot in there with 4+ people. They need to get A/C imo. But otherwise, good.

My friend and I had a really nice stay at the hostel. It is clean, it has everything you need and the stuff is really really friendly and helpful, they even took us out to karaoke :D The location couldn't be more perfect, it is almost right at the Haeundae beach, so we were able to enjoy a stroll by the beach every night on our way back to the hostel. We definitely recommend it and we'll be back the next time we visit Busan! ^^

The hostel is very comfortable and all the facilities is good. They even give us a free photo.=) But it is a bit hard to find.
