Perfect location for seeing all the interesting places in the city. Mr. Kim is a great host, the wifi is really fast and you get free laundry! Do I need to say more?


Hostel owner Kim is very good about orienting you to the city and providing recommendations. Good value for utilitarian facilities. Good for budget backpackers and young travelers but a bit utilitarian for couples or female travelers. Mixed gender dorm room is separated from living space by set of sliding doors, not blocking much sound and light(12am quiet hour enforced). Beds are very spartan. Bathrooms are a bit grimy -- just a detached shower head next to toilet and water drains into floor.


Little hostel, more like a house. Owner was friendly but beyond the initial welcome didn't try to make a lot of contact with the guests. Beds were good, place was very clean. Bathrooms weren't that great, only two, so it got rather busy in the morning! No breakfast, but 7/11 is right down the street.


stayed there just one night, wish i could stay longer


A decent hostel to stay at for a few nights in Busan. Kim provided some excellent tips for local cheap eats.


Such a great place to stay. Really cant find any faults with it. Quiet enough to chill out, but social enough to make friends. Great location, great staff, very clean.


Kim's house is the best hostel, hands down. Not only is his house clean and cozy, but Mr Kim is the man. His English is amazing and he helps you with whatever you need. We needed to book tickets to Japan and he helped us every step of the way. Let me put it this way: he is the fun uncle that you've always wanted and will be the light that guides you around Busan. As a farewell, we stayed up with him and the other guests dining on melon and soju. Best night ever. Kim's house forever


Chill place to stay at in busan ;) thank you Kim :)

Nice place with helpful staff and pretty cheap


Very nice hostel, would recommend!


The night I stayed there the window was open and mosquitos were flying in, so I did not rest well. But the staff is friendly and made an effort to fix this problem later, the location is great and the price is unbeatable. Would recommend for budget travelers!
