“BEST HOSTEL IN KOREA!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This hostel really is the best hostel in South Korea! If you are going to Busan, you MUST stay here. The staff are multi-lingual and the Manager James, is kind, polite and so friendly. They offer diffrent room sizes, from single, double, triple, 4,6,8,10+ so its perfect no matter how large or small your group. The location is EXCELLENT, only 5mins from the beach, 2mins from the subway, 2mins from the best irish bar in Korea, (Guinness and fish and chips!) there are lots of shops, bars, restaurants close by, and a train station also a large market!. The hostel is really clean, and you get lockers for your shoes near the entrance and a larger locker in the room for your bags all FREE of charge! there is free breakfast and juice, tea, coffee. the facilities are really modern and clean. and best of all.. there is a large roof garden with city view! you can chill out here, eat, drink and relax with your friends. there is gorgeous garden furniture and lovely flowers. I've been to this hostel many times and i will always return, if i'm going to Busan, i'm going to the new day hostel.

I watched my kindergarten students graduate and an hour later see the academy they went to/I had worked at for 10 months close all in the same day. I didn't know where to stay a week later until a friend suggested I go to this hostel as her friend worked there and she knew the owners. I stayed there a week and had a terrific experience. All the staff went out of their way to keep everything clean. I had paperwork to submit to the States. They let me print everything out for free, fed me lunch and a few dinners for free, had cake to celebrate the owners birthday, and they were just so friendly. At the last minute I decided to go to China. I had one day to send 4 boxes of things back to the States, close my bank account, get Chinese yuan, and ship via DHL my computer home. I didn't want to use my cc with DHL since my cc company adds an extra charge when using it out of the U.S. So, one of the staff, Seung Hoon, used his personal cc to pay DHL, and I later paid him cash. It was things like that, having the privacy of being able to use the 7th floor and go onto the patio, Wifi, free use of the washing machine, and having soap and shampoo always available that really made a stressful time very relaxing. I can't thank the staff at the New Day enough. I will always remember their kindness.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the reservation and kitchen area as the noise echoes.

Stayed in Hostel the New Day for 3 nights. It was the best of the best hostel I've ever stay. Staff were nice, helpful and friendly. Apart from the staff, the hostel itself is in a great and awesome location, just next to Haeundae Metro station and opposite to the Haeundae Train Station, a 5 mins walk to the famous Haeundae Beach. Furthermore, the entire hostel is spotless clean and with a equipped kitchen. I personally love their rooftop garden and commom area, that is perfect. However, the sound proof needs some improvement.

Just checked out of Hostel The New Day, and stayed for a night there. Staff were great and friendly and allowed us to use the common showers after checkout. The room was sparkling clean. Everything was taken care of - from towels to shower gel, shampoo and hair dryer. :)

The location was awesome - just a few steps away from the metro's exit. However, the station 'haeundae' itself is far from the places on my itinerary and traveling on the metro took me some time.

Brekie was simple, but sufficient.

The security is good, with card access from the ground floor. Definitely ok for single lady traveller.

Would go back to the hostel again. Very value for money!

Stayed here with a large group of friends St. Paddy's Day weekend. Amazing service, clean facility, perfect location (just outside exit 1 of Haeundae Station). Can't wait until the next time I can stay there!

Special mention goes out to the friendliest staff there. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get his name, but I believe he may have been the manager of the hostel. In any case, he was very welcoming to our large group, and we immediately felt comfortable at the hostel in his presence. Customer service was above and beyond any of our expectations here. Great experience!

This Hostel blew every other Hostel out of the water. It's located a 30 second walk out of exit 1 of Haeundae Subway Station, on the 5th floor. We were given the keys to our private room which was comfortable and warm and great for what we paid. The communal area and kitchen was modern and welcoming and free internet was available on 2 free PCs in the room. There was a fridge that stocked beer and coke/sprite which you could help yourself to, and pay the morning after, which is great for pre-drinking.
But what's unique about this hostel is the rooftop condo/terrace. Up on floor 7 there's a 'big brother' style house with chairs, tables, rocking chair, piano, darts, radio and 2 PCs for your use. Outside of this there is a roof terrace with a wooden swing and benches for outside resting and for seeing views of Busan from high up.
The Hostel is also a 5 min walk to the beach. The people who run the hostel are so accommodating and awesome and couldn't wait to get involved in our Irish themed night for St. Patrick's Day. He even had a Leprechaun tattoo on his forehead the whole night!
Will 100% stay here again whenever I go to Busan!

Room Tip: If there are 4 of you, the family room (with TV) is a good choice and seems worth the extra $
