During my last night, when I suddenly turned up in Busan on a night I hadn't planned to stay in Busan, the female dorm was full but the owner arranged for me to sleep in a single room and pay the same rate as for a dorm because I had come to Kim's House so many times. This is a really nice place to stay in Busan :D
I had a great time staying here. Mr Kim took us out for Korean BBQ (and soju) on my first night which was fun. Near quite a few places to eat and drink and pretty easy to get to from the metro station.
Kim's House is an excellent hostel choice for traveling in Busan. It is in a quiet area but is close to restaurants and cafes. It is close to the subway, centrally located, and easy to find. For the price the dorms are very comfortable. The beds are also much more comfortable than most Korean beds. Kim keeps the hostrl clean and inviting- I would stay here again!
Mr Kim is such an amazing host and he is so helpful and knowledgable. He is kind and really went out of his way for us. The hostel is very clean and is a very good location to tourist sites. We had an amazing stay and I will come back again! Thanks for your help and generosity.
I have to say staying in kim's house is really good. The location is good and easy for me to travel around in the city. Kim wil put forward some useful suggestiob for food and sites, which is quite valuable. The bath place he recommend is impressive. If I have time I will come back again.
Mr. Kim is very nice and the location is great. On the negative side, it seems a bit pricey for a dorm-bed in a small house and the thin walls make every footstep and door closing audible from the unusually small and squeaky bunk-bed. Directions: Out exit 5 the main street is behind you. Look for the appropriately named “BS Bank.” Turn right and go straight until the far end of the “Hotel Korea” (on other side) and then turn right up the alley. You’ll see Mr. Kim’s sign after one twisting block.
Absouletely no doubt about Kims hostel which was Helpful useful comfy itself it was first time to use busan hostel make me happiness coziness it is right place to meet ppl right place to chilling i d love to back again ! thanks heaps kim ^^
This place is like a middle-class Korean home which has been converted into a hostel.
Even though the bed was too small for 2 , and the shower water pressure was not good at all, overall it was a good experience and Mr Kim was very helpful providing all the information regarding Busan.
Nice little hostel tucked into Kim's house. He is great resource for info and meal recommendations. Close to metro giving easy access to any part of the city.
Overall being said, Kim's House is the right choice for a traveler like myself as a place for accommodation. It is very close to the Busan's Daeyon subway station (green line). Mr Kim, the house owner simply helps my friends and I to get to the attractions in Busan. However, he can only help you if you just merely ask him...the facilities there was very good-comfortable and cozy. At Kim's House, the breakfast would not be prepared, but it is very convenient and easy to get to nearby restaurant.

Kim is soooo nice!! The room was comfortable to stady . I will always choose Kim's house when I come to Busan .
Very good Guesthouse, with an amazing staff. Mr. Kim is the man, he knows everything you need in Busan, where to go, where to eat, everything. The guesthouse is very well located (4 minutes walking from the underground sttion), good facilities, relaxed atmosphere, I highly recomend it. P.S. Free washing machine is a plus!
My friend and I stayed at Kim's house for 2 nights! We had really great time in Busan thanks to Mr.Kim. He recommended us some famous restaurants and attractive things!
A good hostel in a nice location if a little hard to find at first! The facilities and cleanliness were good and Kim gives you a map and talks you through all the landmarks/transport etc. which is really helpful. Only issue I had with the place was that even though we were all told the hostel was 24 hours we continually got told to be quiet/go to bed after 11pm when chatting at a normal level in the common area. That being said, this is still a lovely hostel and I would recommend it.
Mr. Kim is an amazing host. He helped us with the places worth visiting and how to reach there. The place is impeccably clean and Mr. Kim takes special care in keeping the place clean and tidy. The place could really do with a another or two sets of toilets, though.
This was a great place. Mr Kim is very nice and hospitable. He sent me an email after i booked on Hostelworld explaining how to get to his place. It's near the metro line and is easy to find. As soon as I came he gave me a map and told me exactly how to get to all the cool touristic places in Busan. The house is clean and comfortable as well, so I would definitely recommend it!
Had a great stay here. Thanks Mr. Kim!

Good location with lots of delicious restaurants around. Located close to Daejeon station, it's easy to get anywhere in Busan or explore around the University or UN Memorial.
