Seems like your uncle´s home, Mr. Kim is so helpful and kind. The place is not so big, but is really comfortable and close to the subway , If you go to Busan , look for Kim´s house


I'm very satisfied with the hotel. Thank you for having me.


I think Kim should improve the security by giving locker for each guest. Thats all. Everything is nice. Near to the subway station. Near to the airport.

We really enjoyed our time at Kim's, the staff were all lovely and so helpful with what we could do here in busan as well as some tips for when we go to the Philippines next week. The beds were comfy and the hostel itself had a warm feel about it. Good kitchen facilities, we just wish the bathrooms had been a bit nicer. But we would definitely stay here again!


The hostel is conveniently located - 3-5mins walk from Daeyeon Station. And that makes it convenient to go to most attraction by metro! It's also a few stop away from Gwangalli Beach. The host, Kim, is also very helpful; he gave a map and talked about the all the attractions in Busan, down to the details such as the buses to take and which exit to go to from the station!


Not a bad hostel, but there some points that Kim could improve. The towels and blankets are really so small. On the other side Kim was helpful and nice.


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.
