“Central location, great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

It is cozy, has English-speaking owners/staff and is very nice.

Was a little hard to find, so we took a cab.

It's central - very near the malls, and about a 15min walk from the subway.

Downside: stairs only. no lifts. Our friend was injured, and couldn't get the bottom floor rooms, so she had to climb all the way to the top. Glad we left our luggage in Seoul, and traveled light to Busan.

Our room was literally the only room on the top floor, so it was quiet and comfortable.. It was convenient to get to the kitchen for breakfast, too. The kitchen was on the roof.
They have a cute outdoor seating area on the roof.

The breakfast kinda sucked cos you make your own breakfast with whatever they have there , but it was fun :)

The rooms are clean and comfortable. We got bunk beds.

But, it gets cold at night, even in Autumn. There is no heater.

Room Tip: i guess the best would still be either downstairs or the second floor.

Stayed here twice. The recent one was in September. Central location. Good pace to stay with the price offered. Stayed for 3 nights. 2 nights in the 6 bed dorm and one night in a single room . Book directly with the hostel. The dorm room is ensuite but there was railway line that passes but if you are too tired, this is not a problem. Could not close the window as my other dorm mates wanted the window to be opened for ventilation. Stayed in a single room on my last night and was really quiet as I closed the window which much reduce the noise form outside. Breakfast was given free , with toast bread, juice and coffee on their rooftop kitchen. Wifi internet is free and they have 3 or 4 computers for you to use free also. You can leave your baggage behind for free if you check out early and have a late night flight to catch. Overall this is a nice place, and I recommend this place to stay while in Busan.

Its a nice place to stay as the place is well kept and cozy. You will feel at home when you're staying here. Staffs are friendly and helpful. They speak english which makes it easy to ask for recommendation or direction. Highly recomended place for accomodation.

Somewhat hard to find yet location is good since the commercial district is a nice short walk away. The neighborhood has quite the character with lots of interesting people. Staff and guests are all friendly. You won't feel lonely or alienated. The rooms are well kept and comfy. They have fast internet and the rooftop is a nice place to hangout while nursing your beer or cigarette. Definitely staying here again.

So there is no address in the guide book. Just a phone number and the words "behind the Lotte hotel" but Busan people are so hospitable that a shop owner walked me the three blocks there and it was so worth it. They even booked my transport to Japan!
Thank you Jen!

I stayed for only a night but I was quite impressed with the hostel. I remembered arriving at the hostel and there was this woman coming down the stairs telling me it was a lovely place and she was right! The dorm room I stayed was clean and well-maintained with an ensuite bathroom. The pantry was on the roof which I thought was quite cool and I like the common area which was spacious and had a nice ambience. Jin and her family who ran the hostel were nice too making it a pleasant stay. I would have stayed longer if my schedule permitted me too! I would highly recommend this place to anyone who comes to Busan be it a backpacker or not!
