I have been to 4 spas {jimjibang) in Korea: Yongsan Dragon Spa & Silloam Fire Sauna in Seoul, and Hurshimchung. Hurshimchung is the biggest!! I loved it here! Indoor spa area is HUGH!! I have a wonderful time jumping from 1 pool to the next! Outdoor area is just 3 pools, 2 hot pools, 1 cold pool, & 1 sauna. The common sauna area is also hugh!! Highly recommended!!
Directions: L1 Oncheonjang Station, Exit 5 (at 1 end of train platform, It is linked directly to bridge to HomePlus). Go to level 1, go out the back exit of HomePlus, turn right and you will See Hana Bank next to HomePlus. At the junction in front of Hana Bank, cross road, go straight 150m to arrive at Hurshimchung (허심청) on the left. Turn left into side road, go in using side enterance. Oppsite side entrance is CU convenience store.

I've been to both Spaland and Hurshimchung. They are both great, each in their own way. Spaland is very couples oriented- lots to do in the expansive ( co-ed) jjimjilbang area. But Hurshimchung is the Disney-world of soaking spas. At least on the Male side. Easy to find from the train station. It is connected to the Hotel Nongshim which you can see from the train on the left coming from central Busan. Spa is behind the Homeplus shopping center and to the left.
Exit Oncheonjang station- at 5, go over bridge and go through the Home Plus complex. On the other side, cross the street and walk left to the next corner. Turn right and walk straight for 2 blocks. Its on the corner, and conected to the hotel by a second story bridge. Modern Building and take the elavator to secong floor.
The jjimjilbang is 2000 won extra, and not very exciting after Spaland. But the spa- at 8000 won when I went on a weeekd, was fantastic. A Roman bath meets Korean bath. Got a saltscrub for 18000 won. Well spent for a 20 minute massage. If you just want to relax in hot water- you can't beat this place. Indoor and outdoor spas, as well as specialty pools of different minerals. Signage in English. Staff very friendly. Pay on your way out, as your key is a debit card , so all food , services are added.

Take this review with a grain of salt, because I've never been to a Korean spa before. Being a Caucasian, I did feel out of place, but certainly nor unwelcome. When you arrive, you pay your entry and are given a locker key. The key gives you two lockers, one right at the front desk for you shoes and valuables, and one inside the spa.

I don't speak Korean, and as with all things in Korea there is little English signage. My wife went to the spa at the same time as I ( women and men are speared because this is all nude). She had a lady who spoke English help her figure things out. I didn't so I really watched and muddled through.

I brought toiletries, but I left them in my locker, you should really bring them up to the spa, because that's where the showers and sinks are. In the locker room, there are only mirrors and hair products.

So that was my first mistake.

My second was trying to find the pools. Haha. I might have missed a sign, but I went completely the wrong direction and ended up in the wrong spot, which is really weird when you're walking around naked.

The pools are upstairs!

Before you go into the pools, you need to shower and wash yourself.

Then explore! There are so many pools to try as well as saunas. You really could spend a long time here, and it looked like some people did.

A lot of men were sleeping on the lounge chairs around the pool. After your finished, you can either shower or do like the Koreans and just spoon some water to rinse off. They have a rinsing area, with laddles that you rinse yourself with. That way the minerals stay on your skin. Or, just lay down to dry off.

I was very glad I went.

I was enjoying the spa when I saw a sign saying that people with tattoos or skin diseases (almost as if they were the same thing) would not be allowed in the baths. Until then I had been in the baths without any problems, and none of the other women seemed to be bothered (or even noticed) my tattoos. But after reading the sign I just didn't feel comfortable and left. Sad story cause I really liked the Korean spas. I've been to other two (happy day and Siloam, both in Seul), and didn't have any problems. I know tattoos can be a delicate subject on Korean culture but really, I don't see the need for this rule

Thank you for choosing Hurshimchung as your home away from home and we appreciate you for giving us your precious words. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you before. There is no great prohibition for just some fashin tattoos for the part of body. However, the guests who have tattoos all over their bodies are not allowed. Thank you for your understanding. We promise to try our best for visiting you again at our hotel with more improved service quality. Thank you very much. Hotel Nongshim Director of General Sales

Be careful when you pay the bill! They tried to charge me 23,000 won when the price was 10,000. Thanks God I paid attention on the total amount. When I refused to pay they explained me I was paying for 2! while I entered alone and that another person bought something in the bar. Truly very disappointing. The place is way worse then the Centum Spa Land.

This is a big spa with a history.
Nevertheless, this place is not that rusty. Can't compare to luxurious brand new spas by the way.

- 10~15 min walk from 'Oncheonjang' station in the north. It's 40~50 from the touristic center of Busan.

- 8,000 won for weekdays. 2,000 won more for jjimjilbang(extra spa area).
- Scrubbing service is not included of course. And it seemed expensive.
- The cost will be paid upon leaving.

- This is also a place for locals. Not overpriced.
- There are various baths, saunas, a swimming pool and outdoor areas.
- The ceiling in the in the middle is really high and incredible. After bathing, it's good to relax lying on a beach chair.
- Jjimjilbang is not much different from most other spas in Korea. But, it'll be fun for people experiencing for the first time.

The only good thing is it's cheap. Things feel dirty and doesn't seem like the walls of hot tub had been cleaned much. The sauna room all have tv in there and sound is turned up, so I can't relax in there. The common area has kids running around so I can't get a moment of silence. Even going into the sleeping room, you can hear the music from the kerorke room and people singing... compare this to spa world in Japan... this place is not even close.

Hurshimchung Oncheon (Hotspring) and Jjimjilbang is a great place to try out the medicinal benefits of the Dongnae sodium hot springs of Busan.
Getting There: The Oncheon/Jjimjilbang is part of Hotel Nongshim complex. Catch Line 1, the Orange line, to Oncheonjang. Use Exit 1. There is a neighbourhood map on the wall by this exit. Turn left and walk straight ahead to the pedestrian crossing, and cross over. Go to the left and walk straight ahead to another large pedestrian crossing. Cross over and you should be on Geumganggongwon-ro. There is a street sign. Turn right and you should see Hotel Nongshim in the distance. Walk towards the Hotel, and then straight past it as Hurshimchung is located behind the hotel. Go into the Hurshimchung building, take the escalator to the second floor, turn right and the entrance is ahead of you.
The men's hot springs section has a large cathedral-like dome ceiling which lets in a large amount of natural light, creating a bright airy ambience. There are several hot pools, cold pools along with themed and medicinal baths. Saunas are available. There is also an outdoor hotpool area.
The pools were very relaxing and enjoyable. ( Make sure you shower before entering the pools). There was a wide variety to choose from and signage in Korean, Japanese and some English to explain the benefits of each bath. (Longevity Bath, Cypress Bath, Water fall bath, Cave Bath, Half Body bath, Open-Air bath, Yellow Soil Bath)
After the pools you can put on the Jjimjilbang uniform and visit the Jjimjilbang. It has saunas, sleeping areas, TV/PC areas along with food and places to relax. (Jewellry Sauna, Yellow Soil Room, Charcoal room and Ice Room)
It's a good place to visit in Busan if you want to try out a hot pools and Jjimjilbang experience. Fees for entrance and food, massages/skin scrubs are charged to your locker key number and are payable when you leave. If you want to use Jjimjilbang make sure you ask for the uniform when you enter.

***For those who are foreign to how it works: SHOWER FIRST!!! PLEEEEASE CLEAN YOUR BODY, HAIR AND FACE (remove make-up) BEFORE YOU DIP YOURSELF IN THE COMMON BATH.

외국인 이용객들이 늘어나면서 종종 샤워를 생략하거나 화장을 지우지 않은 채로 탕에 앉아 있는 사람들이 보입니다. "탕에 들어가기 전에 샤워는 필수입니다"라는 팻말이 '한글'로 적혀있을 뿐 외국인에게 기본적인 안내가 되지 않고 있는 것 같습니다. 여러가지 외국어로 안내판을 달고, 입장 시에 직원이 목욕탕 이용수칙을 안내해주면 좋겠습니다.

This is a well-kept, large and beautiful spa with multiple baths, tubs, saunas, etc. At 10,000 won this is a great deal; the jjimjilbang is an additional 2,000 won. (However, one certainly finds more impressive bathhouses in Eastern Europe and other places with a spa culture.) As pointed out by other reviewers, the wet areas are gender segregated and require patrons to wear nothing but their birthday suit (sadly, this is a tradition that is being eliminated in many other places). I’d actually recommend anyone who’s visiting Busan and is not comfortable with being naked to pay a visit to Hurshimchung. If that is your case, your perspective may change when you see people of all ages, and sizes and shapes comfortably interacting in the nude. It is a very safe place. Hurshimchung seems to be family oriented, I visited on a Sunday afternoon and there were many fathers with their sons, from toddlers to adolescents. Apparently, going by yourself is not the trend as everybody seemed to have someone else to scrub their back. Very relaxing and soothing (just find a spot away from the kids playing). Highly recommended. Expect very few foreigners and just basic English spoken by staff. You should not have any trouble finding the spa building. Scroll down and follow the directions given by other reviewers.
