I've stayed in the hotel for 3 days/2 nights and had a nice time. First of all, its location is good: near the exit of the subway, in 1-2 minutes from the popular Haeundae beach and aquarium. Breakfast is included in the price (jam, toast, tea, eggs). Secondly, there is a very friendly staff. If you bring for them some... More

this hostel is fabulous with friendly staffs! although the room and toilet is seriously small, but for the price paid,i think it's still worth it. you get to prepare breakfast by yourself and make friends with other ppl in the dining area too. so if you are looking for a budget and cosy place, this is the place for u!

The hostel's location is good, near to the metro station and the famous Haeundae beach. The staff are very friendly, and they arranged for our late check-in. Although we booked a room in this hostel because of the good reviews provided, we were extremely disappointed with Mr. Egg Hostel Original. These are the main issues: 1. The bathroom was dirty,...
