Mr. Kim was a great host and very helpful and friendly. Felt really comfortable there and both of his hostels are well appointed and well priced. Easy to get anywhere as it's right near the subway. Otherwise really enjoyed my stay here.
Location is good by Busan standards, i.e. ten minutes walk from the subway station that is 1 stop from the city's main expat bar area/the Kyungsung-Pukyung Univ. area. Great staff, but weak showers, laundry service and wifi, but our room was unlockable (?). Good small safety lockers for purses and items of that size. Recycling and nice kitchen.
This was a cute hostel -- on the smaller side. The owner was nice, nothing exceptional. A little far from the train, but found it nevertheless.
Overall is good, but a little far away from metro station.
If u travel light, i definately recommend this place. It feels like home and excellent owner :)
Having stayed at their place in Seoul a few years back, the Kims are still the best hosts I have ever met. We felt right at home in this guesthouse. I would definitely return when I'm back in Busan.
love this hostel! it's like my own home:) I hope I could go back again^O^ miemie

The owner will be able to help you if you need it! She book for us our flight to jeju-do (because of a credit-card problems). There is a nice place outside, beneath a kiwi-tree =)
Really nice staff! Will help you out whenever you need it! Really clean guesthouse with all the facilities you need!
I was looking for a home, and I found it. I really felt like I was visiting a home more than a hostel here. Mr. Kim and Julie are very friendly and considerate. When you arrive, the provide you with a map of the city and suggestions of tourist destinations if you'd like. Also, one evening Mr. Kim cooked his famous lemon? chicken for all the guests. Now, I can't guarantee that he will always do this, but it was certainly an unexpected, pleasant surprise. I would certainly stay here again.
I really enjoyed my stay. Close to the UN cementary. I was there several times including of course on the 25 of June. The staff was very helpful with arranging a flight to Jeju, where I am right now.
Awesome place, Mr. Kim and Julie have excellent facilities. Clean beds, AC in each room and lobby, and towels available for personal use. I will be returning to Korea in a month and will surely book with them upon arrival if I return to Busan!
