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 went to Busan for watching film festival. this hostel is closest to the biff village, megabox, also haeundae beach. then it's tidy and so convenient. I can come here again! :-)

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.


Lack of atmosphere, unfriendly staff


Staff is fun amd friendly, very helpful also. The location is perfect to party and check out time was 12 pm: awesome!
