The staff members were polite, if not quite friendly. The location is excellent. It's right next to the subway station and within easy walking distance of the beach. The price is great and likely one of the best values around. Breakfast is simple, only eggs, toast, juice and coffee, but it's free. The only real complaints I have is that the room I stayed in got really warm overnight and the pillow they provide is so thin as to be worthless. Great place to stay if you bring your own pillow.

I had a really nice stay. No problem whatsoever. There is a really nice common room two floors up from dorms and it has a lot of great things. Really close to Haeundae beach but far from Busan station.
They deserve the high rating - best Hostel I've been to! Eggs at breakfast, yes! Extremely clean, really great staff (the one working in the evenings was outgoing, asked about my day and we chatted about language learning). Laundry is free if you hang dry (no charge for soap even)- washing machine has no English instructions but they helped. Good atmosphere for meeting others, beautiful common areas. You get a locker for shoes (+slippers), locker in room (backpack-sized), and even a small towel!
This is more of a hotel than a hostel. One of the cleanest and comfortable hostels in korea. And leaan is great! And really good to talk to, also a great help With the local area. Only complaint is that I wasnt aloud to try and catch the fish with chopsticks, I need practice. Other than that you'll be beyond pleased with your stay.
Definitely is a very nice hostel, nice staff, nice environment. But one think need to remind is Haeundae is located at other side of the Busan city, which means if you do not have sufficient time and you would only like to visit Nampo-dong, Jagalchi Market (Seafood market) and so on sightseeing spots, you might need to take an hour subway in order to visit them. On the other hand, if you want to visit the beach, it is just took you 5 mins walk!!!
Really awesome hostel. Really liked the upstairs rooftop lounge
You will very hardly find a more modern hostel for such price. Common rooms are huge, breakfast is excellent. My room didnt have any windows, so you felt like its still 4am when it was 9am. Kinda weird. And guys had common showers, not separate ones which I would prefer. Those are the only downsides, overall very good! In summer, time at the rooftop must be great.
Big, clean, great rooftop, lounge area. However the staff member who checked us in was a bit rude and unwelcoming. But this was balanced by a super nice and friendly staff member who helped us find some good restaurants.
Comfortable beds, great terrace, very clean and very friendly staff. The location is also good because its right next to the subway station. However its in Huandae and that is nice in summer because of the beach but its 40min from the center. I did not like the small towels. The american breakfast is boring if you do not like eggs for breakfast. Some cereals would be great. It was always so difficult to find something in the kitchen. Why do you not make big pictures and stick them to the drawers
Location is right outside Haeundae station and very close to Haeundae beach. Friendly staff, great facilities. great experience.

To be honest, this isn't really a hostel. It's like a hotel trying to be a hostel. Having said that, the facilities, location and security are top notch. They even have floor heating in the rooms and personal lockers included for free. However, I didn't find the home-like feel or atmosphere of a typical hostel in this place. But if you are just looking for a place to stay... This is great! Although it's far from ktx and intercity bus terminals. If you like the mugunghwa, it's perfect.
Why waste your time hunting around for some hostel tucked into some random alley when you can stay at the one right by the subway station? The hostel is clearly visible from the exit and it's just off of the main street towards the beach where all the restaurants are - perfect!
Possibly one of the best hostels in East Asia. Thank you, New Day.
This hostel is nearly on par with the Portuguese hostels (easily the best in the world). Everything was well-planned, clean, and efficient. Laundry's only 3k, or free if you hang dry. The common area on the roof is excellent. I can't say much about the vibe here as it was a bit quiet when I visited, but I'll definitely stay here on my next visit.
the new day is one of the best hostel i've stayed, will definatly come and stay again if i come busan staff are freindly and very helpful, the hostel is super clean the 7th floor common room and garden is really nice
Excellent hostel which seems more like an above average hotel at first because it is so clean, spacious and well-decorated, but maintains the feel of a hostel, with quirks such as a message board for traveller recommendations/reviews and communal breakfast which had a great atmosphere. Oddly, the men's shower room was similarly communal, but I guess it's nothing different to when you shower after going swimming perhaps, so shouldn't be regarded as a negative. Overall highly recommended.
"The New Day" isn't downtown Busan but It's easy to access by subway and easy to hung around Busan. Stuffs are friendly and rooms are new and clean.
We had a great stay at this hostel. Really convenient and comfortable. Clean and lots of amenities -incl washing machine, lockers and good wifi. Breakfast was good and the place is very modern and stylish. Nothing bad to say about it at all!
My second visit here and I still love it! the location is perfect- right across the road from Haeundae station (where you inevitably want to be when in Busan), amazing facilities. Great building. I cannot think of any complaints! Thanks for another amazing stay! :)
