Very cheap but a high value hostel @ ~60000 KRW/night per room that's less than 500Php each for a group of 6! Perfect for a medium-sized group - a spacious room with 4 double decks and equally huge restroom was easily waiting for us as we navigated our way from the Gimhae airport thru the Metro transit.

It had that international guesthouse vibe I couldn't find a lot of in Korea. The common kitchen was nice, the lobby with its helpful staff was great too. It's a bit of a walk to the subway but you pass through nice eateries on the way. The room was also nice and clean. You can pinpoint the place on Google... More

This place was quite nice and they got very warm hospitality. All the corners of this lodge were really clean, kitchen, stairway even the rooftop. The location not really far from the train station however the way finding to come to this hostel was quite tricky. Please master the map given before you come. It helped to shorten the time...

We had a wonderful stay at Blue Backpackers Hostel. It is as clean as a nice hotel, and our room was very cute. We felt safe there and the staff was incredibly helpful. It is in a good location for walking around the neighborhood at night. There are a lot of restaurants and bars nearby. When we stayed there there... More

Spent a few days at this hostel - very clean, tidy, reasonable. Breakfast on roof was good. Great facilities including free wifi, free maps and helpful staff. About ten minute walk from Seomyeon station - a little map reading required to find it but not that hard. Highly recommend this spot.

Once my friend and I arrived at the area, it was pretty hard to find as it is located pretty far away from the subway station. Since it was hard to find, the staff there were kindly enough to direct us the way to the hostel which is very helpful from them. They are very knowledgeable around the area especially... More

Nice location, and the staff are quite friendly and knowledgeable. It is a good place to meet fellow travellers and exchange information. It is a little hard to find, so be prepared to get lost a few times but other than that close to stores, food and shopping areas. There are a number of clubs in the surrounding vicinity but... More

Very cosy and comfortable stay, and the owners are friendly and helpful with my queries on how to get to places in Busan. Only thing is the location may be a little difficult to locate if you are new in Busan as this backpacker hotel is situated in a little alley along the main road. Highly recommended!

First, the location at tripadvisor site is wrong. Check booking dot com or reconfirm it. Next, arriving at airport, ask the tourist information counter for directions to This blue backpacker hostel and they should give a clear map of the place to you(they seems quite familiar with this place) with that map, its EASY to find. GPS would be great... More

This was my second Korean hostel experience and definitely the best! The staff is friendly, the facilities are clean and it's in a really fun area. I've stayed there four times and, each time, it's really nice for resting up for a night of clubbing after a day on the beach! The staff speaks excellent English, they are extremely accommodating...
