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...

My wife and I stayed two nights at Blue Backpackers. We booked a double room and were very pleased with our stay. The desk staff spoke excellent English and were quite helpful in planning our excursions around the city. Breakfast was just fine--a kitchen with plenty of dishware and utensils, all the eggs and bread you could want, and coffee... More

It is cozy, has English-speaking owners/staff and is very nice. Was a little hard to find, so we took a cab. It's central - very near the malls, and about a 15min walk from the subway. Downside: stairs only. no lifts. Our friend was injured, and couldn't get the bottom floor rooms, so she had to climb all the way... More
