I do not write a lot of reviews but after my stay at Pobi Guesthouse, I felt like it was more than necessary. I have visited Busan a couple of times and stayed at different hostels. By far, Pobi exceeded all expectations and fulfilled my trip and experience. The owner Grace, is a lovely and considerate hostess. We visited during... More

This was my second time staying in Pobi. The last time was in September 2012, and it was yet again a more than satisfying experience. Being a hostel that accommodates budget travelers, the place offers a variety of facilities that are very clean and well-maintained. The owners clearly make a great effort to offer excellent service to the backpackers. I... More

I visited Busan a few times, most recently for the Holi Festival, and I've always stayed at Pobi Guesthouse. I've always enjoyed my stay here, and I've never run into any problems. The staff are super kind, the rooms are very clean, and the amenities are great. They make you coffee and provide food to eat for breakfast. I'll be... More

Nice place staff and clean place to stay. Booked 3 beds and one private room with my friends for the Holi Hai festival. The staff allowed us to leave our things at the hostel and also get a shower with a towel when we got back for only 3,000 won. We also loved the free waffles Would recommend to to... More

Because of a confusing PayPal issue, my two friends and I arrived on a busy weekend to stay one night, but were told that our reservation had been cancelled. Apparently because I paid directly to PayPal, they were unaware that the money had been sent and cancelled the reservation. Apparently the owner doesn't keep tabs on the PayPal account on... More

Thank you for your review. I understand you felt bad when you check in. But you have to know that's not only our fault. First, you didn't get confirmation from us and you suddenly came to the hostel. I told you there was no dormitory so i suggested you to stay 4 beds private room with just 2,000 different per... More

Good guesthouse with friendly staff and very clean well kept rooms. Working air conditioning and good WiFI. Dorm beds were good with a privacy curtain and electricity. Good breakfast in the morning as well and ability to do laundry. Nice communal area.

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
