Despite being so cheap hostel, the condition of the facilities appeared to be very good and clean.
The Lzone language cafe, which is not where you actually stay, is the best part about this hostel. They have a cafe with cheap drinks and a great atmosphere. The hostel itself is a few blocks away - about a 5 minute walk. Because of the ridiculously cheap price, this hostel is amazing. There are no shortcomings as far as the living arrangements go. It is close to the KSU area, easy to find, and cheap.
The staff first checked us into the lower part of the hostel that literally had no toilet seat and the dirtiest and smelliest of all the hostels I've been to in 17 countries. Also, my friend and I were the only guests and the rest almost completely full of the staff - very cliquey and unfriendly. After experiencing the warzone of a toilet, we moved upstairs with a proper toilet. Much better place but still full of mostly staff and 1 toilet for the entire crammed hostel.
The hostel was not in the best condition. The bathroom was scary. We went as a group and were told that our rooms were not available. We were compensated by discounts. That was good, and Courtney (manager) was very accommodating. The hostel itself is just not in good condition.

We got to the hostel and did not realize that this was a language center (you do get a drink though). Then we had to walk to an apartment (two buildings away from the language center). The 'hostel' or apartment had linen that had to be placed on the bed, and there was a security code for the hostel, but no lockers. We booked a 4 private bed. They did reimburse us ₩5,000 for the mistake. It took a week to withdraw the money from credit card.
This is my favorite hostel whenever I am in Busan. It is close to line 2 (The beach line), and has excellent character. The staff is fantastic, and it is a great area for parties (The bar district is across the street!).
Amazing staff is really what made this a great hostel. While there were some issues with the lock on the hostel door in the first few days, the neighbourhood is very safe and the problem was addressed. The owner is always available to speak to and the cafe is a great way to meet friends from around the world. All in all a great experience.

The staff was very friendly, even after I arrived well past my check in time! There's a variety of room types in each dorm to choose from, and there's always someone to chat with. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a reasonably priced place to stay while in Busan, and I personally will definitely book again if I'm ever in the area.
