I stayed in their dorm room for 2 nights, I appraciate their enthusiastic korean hospitality, however, they seem party everyday til very late so I am a little bit tired of involving. Dorm room is comfortable and shower room is modern. This hostel is new in Busan so you expect everything is new! Room rate is a little bit high as it consider to be luxury dorm. check out time 11am which is clearly listed on the board. I have been charged for 1000 won more for 15 mins late, so becareful. Luggage store for 2 days is 2000 won, so be noted again! Overall, it is a nice guesthouse but they have still alot of space to improve.

I stepped out of my comfort zone to stay at the Hello Guesthouse. I usually like a room to myself when travelling solo. I usually like a room with a bathroom in it. But people spoke so highly of the Hello Guesthouse and the pictures looked good, so I decided to give it a try. I was glad I did. The rooms looked exactly like the pictures - clean and attractively decorated. The living room was also clean and comfortable and well furnished. The common areas were thoroughly cleaned daily. The managers, Nicole and Sue, were friendly and helpful and they spoke fluent English. They advertised that it was a short walk to the beach and it was - about 5 minutes. It's also a short walk to the subway. It's surrounded by places to eat of every kind and price level. They have a self-serve breakfast of toast wth butter and jam, eggs and coffee. There's a nice flat screen tv in the living room. There are two computers that you can use free of charge. Laundry can be done and air dried on the roof for 1000 won. I was very, very pleased with this place.

Now for the cons - unfortunately, there were a few (very few)
1) They don't take credit cards and they don't tell you before you get there.

2) The 4 person rooms are too small for 4 persons. There are 2 bunkbeds in a space for 2 people (imho) Fortunately, there were only 2 of us for a while and 3 on the last day and we were rarely moving around at the same time.

3) They could use some hooks on the wall. There's nowhere to hang anything except the bunk beds.

4) It's located above a restaurant/bar/lounge. If you're a light sleeper you may be bothered by late night talking and laughing. I wasn't. I'm just informing.

However, none of the cons would keep me from staying at this clean, lovely, affordable, close to the beach hostel again :-)
