Staff are definitely very helpful and helped us booked a cab to the airport as we could not communicate with the cab company. Distance from Nampo makes it quite a long journey to street... More

The staff are amazing and friendly. A good place to start new friendship from all around the world. The location is great as its only walking distance to the beach. Moreover, a convienent store located nearby. You don't have to travel far for your supplies.

I stayed in various hostels in Korea and this has to be the best hostel out of the many. It may be slightly hard to find the first time, but it will quickly become a really great home once you have settled in. All the staff are always friendly and helpful even outside of working hours and the cat is... More

The staff at HiKorea Hostel were great and always willing to help with anything at all, they even accommodated us when we tried to book last minute in the busy period. The rooms were all clean, they provide a basic breakfast and they are a short walk from the beach, train station and all the restaurants in Haeundae beach. Would... More

It has everything I need to have for a comfortable stay. Except the bunk room which I hate to climb up to the upper deck to sleep. Otherwise the Wifi, bathroom, lounge room, all are very good! Would love to come back again if I want to go to Haeundae Beach. It's quite near Haeundae Beach.
