Good clean hostel with nice bathrooms and comfortable beds. Also, there are cats to play with and a free breakfast! There is a good sitting area as well with plenty of tables and seats. I really can't complain. It is quite cheap compared to other hostels in Busan.

Everything's clean and the staff is very friendly! They also have two very cute cats you can play with! Plus, it's near the... More

Walk-able from subway station and located very near to Haeundae beach. The 4-bed room we had is very small but clean and affordable, comes with free WiFi. Shower room is a little of a shock: though separated by sex, there are two showers in it so there is a chance you will be sharing with a stranger who might come... More

We went in this guesthouse as a group of 8 people. Rooms and sheets were really clean and the lounge is really confortable (by the way the music was always nice too!). It also offers what we can call a power breakfast regarding what we usually have when breakfast are included in the price. That is a really good point... More

I mentioned that since the lockers are extremely small. I stayed in 4 bed dorm, without any locker or shelf to store guest belongings, no mirror, ...also I was surprised... More

The best place in South Korea that I stayed at! 3 days of pleasure with the great stuff, and perfectly located just 5 minutes from Haeudae Beach. Free WiFi, free breakfast with bread and juice and the friendliest stuff!
