Reviewed October 8, 2013

Its located very closed to main sightseeing spots.

We booked there because of cheap roomrate.
If you are ok with small room, minimum service, then this is the best place for you.

There was no bathtowel (only large face towel is provided), and I felt that the room was a wet and a bit dirty.

This is a easy access Motel from airport, train or bus station as there is a good metro system in Busan and the place is next to the famous Jagalchi market, more shopping stores & restaurants than you need and an intensive underground market from where you can join the famous Lotte Tower Aqua Mall who produce, by the way, a great water show every day.
With the reservation we had really good direction and it was really easy to find the place. The people are helpful and speak English. The rooms are clean, small with bathroom, including WiFi, AC, Fan, TV, a frig including water, all the toiletries, hair dryer, towels... On the 2nd level you have two computers station & a cold and hot water distributor. All for 35000 won/2 pers/night

Room Tip: The Hotel is situated in a small alley full of restaurants..and as there is no sewer system, there i...

This hostel is in a good location near the fish market. The rooms were basic and dated but they were very clean. Overall,it was a good place to stay and it was value for money.I would stay here again.

went to Busan on October 2012 (i know i take too long to review).i went there with other 3 friends. it's not too hard to find.the location is very very near to jagalchi market,it's near to the bus station.

we booked 2 rooms.rooms are clean and just okay for us,eventhough it's quite small. the toilets are clean and enough towels given.some refreshment drinks in the fridge.

the owner are an older women and a young man.very very friendly.he greeted us with smile and when we were about to leave for Jeju,we want to call for taxi but he offered to send us to the airport by himself.and of course with a payment,but it was much cheaper than using taxi.

and i accidentally dropped my ipod in his car and only realize about it when we reached the airport and he already on his way back to the guesthouse. i called him and told what happened and he came back to give my ipod.he didnt charge me anything for that. such a nice guy.

The motel is close to Jagalchi fish market, PIFF square, and Nampo underground shopping mall, but is still in a quiet street so the sounds of the city don´t disturb at night. There are convenience stores just a minute-walk away (GS25 and Ministop). Both local and western bars and restaurants are located around PIFF square.

Our Ondol room had a great value for money. Both floor and the bed are heated properly and our room also had a LAN option (i had to use LAN because my WLAN doesn´t work at all).

The owner had a smile on his face every time we saw him, and were really friendly and helpful when we asked anything!

We stayed for a week and a half, and will definitely come back here if we come back to Busan!
