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.

The staff is friendly and always serve us. They guide us to the location around which is great and interesting. The guest house has a long table where they always gather at night and have conversations among the guest. There are two computers in the lobby where we can easily access. Nevertheless, the location is great where is located near... More

I have stayed in many guesthouses before, but this is my #1. Pobi Guesthouse is the definition of "perfection". Not only is the location good, but it is clean and spacious as well. It is impossible to feel uncomfortable there, especially with the adorable designs on the wall, or the huge teddy bear situated on the sofa (assuming that nobody... More

The hostel is only a few minute walk to haeundae beach and around a 5 minute walk to the subway. Great location because of the surrounding night life. The employees were very helpful and had great recommendations about restaurants and new foods to try. The hostel was very clean and had a good vibe. I dont normally write reviews for... More

I stayed at Pobi during November 2012. Pobi Guesthouse was my second experience with a guesthouse/hostel in Busan, Korea. Pobi Guesthouse is located outside of exit 3 in Haeundae station and is easily accessible on foot. The interior is very cute and full of life. The staff at Pobi Guesthouse also were very helpful and went way beyond what they... More
