This place is in a great location with staff that knows the area very well. Having a hostel-cat helps, too! I just wish breakfast ran one hour longer! Looking forward to spending a couple of summer weekends here.

The paint is pealing on the walls in the bathroom. I thought the bathroom was very dirty. The house temperature was very cold. The house also felt very cluttered with personal stuff which made it seem cumbersome.

Pobi is the place to stay while in Busan! Excellent, super-helpful and outgoing english-speaking staff. Clean rooms and toilets, hot water from showers, fully equipped kitchen. However, there's no bed linen but i guess that's the korean way... Anyway, would absolutely highly recommend this place. The atmosphere made me prolong my stay from one night to four nights! Thanks Pobi and good luck with you diet! :D

One of my favourite hostels, it has the right balance of everything - great staff, good atmosphere, dorm beds with privacy curtains, free breakfast, good wifi, great location - everything a traveller needs. Good stuff.

今まで泊まった宿泊先のBest5に入るくらい素敵なゲストハウスでした。部屋がとても暖かく、寝心地良かったです。シャワーも水圧が強く、シャンプーとコンディショナー、ボディソープまで置いてあり、とても便利でした。ドライヤーはもちろんアイロンまで使えるようになっており、女の人には嬉しい設備でした。デブい猫もかわいかったです。

We had a very good stay at this hostel! Only negativ point is maybe the lack of toilets (only one toilet for men)! Staff was very kind and helpful, location is also great and the place is easy to find!

I really enjoyed my stay at Pobi House. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The place is clean and has a welcoming atmosphere. Reasonably-priced accommodations! There are many good restaurants in the neighborhood of Pobi. I suggest that the choice of plain oatmeal and some saltless nuts be included in the breakfast? The guests can always bring their own supply of fruits. I will stay at Pobi again next time I am in the area.

I stayed here with 7 other people (4 guys, 4 girls). Because we stayed over a holiday (Fireworks Festival) the hostel was packed. We stayed in a room with 10 beds. Each bed had curtains that pulled closed to give each person some privacy! We loved it! There were also lockers in each room for the guests to use for a refundable deposit. It was one street away from all of the Ex-Pat bars and less than a 5 minute walk from the beach. I would definitely stay there again!

My name in Sun, a staff of Pobi guesthouse. Thank you for the elaborate comments :-) We couldn't have a time together so much though, I look forward to having a fun next time. See you next time

A really great place to stay. We stay there every time we go to Busan and are never disappointed. It's clean, friendly, perfectly located right near the beach and offers everything you need. A little bit expensive compared to the regular rate in South Korea, but otherwise perfect.

Great location, not too far from the subway and very close to the beach! We went with a bunch of friends and all had a good stay. I'd be happy to stay there again.
