“Freindly and colorful hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

This hostel is few minutes walking from the amazing Haeundae Beach. Walls of rooms and common areas are painted with funny murales full of colors. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the common room very lively and confortable.

The accommodation was simple. My friends shared a room for 6 and it was pretty tiny. 3 double bunks. But it had air con. The complimentary breakfast was one egg and a slice of toast, no butter. But for the price you can't really complain. It's close to the beach and the owners speak enough English that it's not an issue. The surroundings can get pretty loud because it's near bars, but if that doesn't bother you it's a fun place to stay.

It is quite far from the city centre but near the beach.

Room was simple but clean and definitely glad it came with a toilet. The pretty walls gave us something to smile about. Breakfast was really simple too. Overall, worth the amount paid for.

This place is great but i would not choose it because it is far from the airport and bus terminals.

Indy House is within walking distance to the beach, night market, aquarium, tons of restaurants, clubs, and bars. Perfect location to enjoy Busan to its fullest. The rooms were very clean, and the staff was extremely attentive, and the free breakfast was an added bonus. Great value!

Our room was every inch spick and span, including the bathroom cum toilet. It was definitely value for money given its location which was walking distance to all the lovely places on and around Hayundae Beach, such as the traditional market, the beach, the aquarium, the APEC building. Slept like a log the whole time that I was there. Lovely communal kitchen on the 4th floor which opens onto the rooftop patio. Place to interact and relax.

Indy House is definitely the best you're going to do for a
beach-area lodging without going into the six-figure won price
range. (Hundreds of dollars/euros.) While not actually on the
beach, it's a short walk away from Gwangalli subway station, from
which Gwangalli beach itself is a straight shot past several
blocks. Hard to get lost, and an easily walkable distance.
Along the beach are good chain pub/restaurants like Thursday

Party, as well as coffee houses and errant firework vendors. It
also rarely costs more than about 10,000 won to taxi to and from
the area to nearby beaches like Haeundae. It's a bit far from
Busan station, but the subway is easy enough to navigate. Its
location is about the most convenient you're going to find,
especially in the budget price range.

The couple than runs this place is very nice. They are very
accommodating; once they accidentally overbooked the dorms, so
they let me and another guest have the unoccupied private room
for the same price as a dorm. Having stayed here most of the
times I made the trip to Busan, I've never had a bad experience.
Dorms are small but not crowded, there's a nice living room and
they take good care of the place. Highly recommended.

Nice hostel. Stayed there for two nights with a friend over the low season. Got a huge room with a private bathroom. Good location, and easy to find. It was great value for money. Helpful and friendly staff.
