I stayed here during the New Years 2014-2015. I had a really comfortable stay. They have many dorms and beds so there's lots of people coming in and out; it's definitely a great place to meet people. The staff is very friendly! They were very understanding when I wanted to extend my stay an additional night. The cleaning ladies were... More

We stayed here for only a night, but had a very fun time. The two girls who run the place are very friendly and helpful, and gave us perfect restaurant suggestions both for lunch and dinner. The living room is a nice place to meet people in too, and your allowed to buy and drink alcohol too if you're quiet.... More

I stayed @ Pobi twice - once for one night on my way through to Jeju, and then for 3 nights after returning from Jeju. It's located in Haeundae so it's about a 40 minute subway ride from Busan Station. The airport limousine bus is close by as well. I stayed in a dorm, which had good beds and linen,... More

This guesthouse is located near Haeundae Beach, takes about 5 minutes (including waiting for traffic light) to reach. It's at the same side as OPS Bakery and near the market. For those who are bringing bulky or heavy luggage, please be prepared as the guesthouse is on the 1st floor of the building. There is no escalator/elevator in the building.... More

While booking for this guesthouse, I had some trouble paying with Paypal. It was a bit stressful on my part but thankfully, Pobi Guesthouse retained my reservation until I could pay in cash on the day of my arrival. (thumbs up for that!) I arrived before check-in time so I left my luggage first. I was supposed to stay in... More

The facility was clean enough. The beds were comfortable enough. The location is great. Unfortunately the staff members were dry and Soulless. I felt like it was my job to interact with and make the other guest feel like they were at home. Perhaps this was just the staff members that happened to be there when I stayed. They were... More

I stayed in a private room, my friend was in a 7-bed room. Although it is not luxurious, it is comfortable and clean and the price is excellent. The location is great by the beach but it does take over an hour to get there from the train station, so be prepared to take the subway for about 40 mins... More

I stayed at Pobi Guesthouse for 2 nights and I enjoyed it very much. As it was my first time staying at a guesthouse, initially I was quite worried about safety, cleanliness and whether I'll find my way around alright. However, after the 2 nights stay at Pobi I realised that all those worries were redundant. Firstly, Pobi is located... More

Near to the beach, friendly staff, good WiFi, free breakfast and great common area. It’s not the best hostel I’ve ever been to, but good enough. Minor flaws include smelly bathroom area, lack of credit card payment and busy dorms. Anyway, I can recommend this place to any traveller looking for a moderately cheap accommodation in Busan.
