The staff was friendly, the place overall clean and nice. Bathroom and shower room (divided between girls and guys) was OK. But, we slept in an 8 people dorm and the room was pretty bad. It was very small, with not good enough ventilation, so the temperature during the night was very high and it was unbearably warm. Plus, the door did not isolate any noise from outside at all, so we could well hear people walking around outside early in the morning, flushing the toilet, drying their hair etc.

I had the best time in Korea, and part of it was thankful to them. I highly recommend this hostel, if I have other opportunity to come back, I'll come to HiKorea again.

The directions on the page were incorrect, but we found the place. The kitchen isn't really useable- there are no pots/pans/knives, etc. Bathroom cleanliness was a pretty big issue (didn't see them cleaned for several days) Price is great, location is great, security is good though the locks on the doors beep with every use, which is annoying. Clean more, add a couch in the common room, and get rid of the cat (It is tied in a 6ft area all day. Cruel) and the hostel would be perfect.

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!

4 of us stayed in the 4mixed bed dorm. This guesthouse has the least space out of all the 7 guesthouses we've been too. There's hardly space to open our luggages fully and we have to take turns to pack. The place is clean though. But I really dislike the lack of privacy in the showers as there's no private cubicles. For the price, there are also other competitive guesthouses in busan which was so much better. We left hikorea after the first night for the next one. Lack of space n privacy to sum up

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
