The location was really convenient! It was nice to be able to book a mixed room. They gave us a towel, thanks! And they had everything available. Even the use of a dryer for a few bucks. They even gave each person a locker and sandals (although I wouldn't wear sandals everyone else wore ew). I didn't like that we... More

Me and some friends booked this place very last minute with no clue what to expect, and we were very pleasantly surprised. Fantastic location, about 1 block from Haeundae beach, right next to a great street food market, as well as tonnes of bars, cafes, and banks. The guesthouse itself was great for the price; clean, well kept, free wifi,... More

This hostel is a five minute walk to Haeundae Beach and 10 minutes to the nearest train station. I felt very safe and secure there as there were lockers for shoes at the reception and in the dorm rooms, the main doors were closed and locked at 10PM every night, and each dorm room had its own door lock.

Staying for just one night during the easter break. I would recommend it to you all if you are coming to Busan Haeundae for vacation. Price is reasonable and worthy. Convenient location with just about 3-5 minutes walk to both the beach and metro station. Although the room is quite tiny to put all the luggages in, beds are very... More

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.
