Popcorn is a clean hostel with modern facilities and a great location by the beach, but what really sets it apart are a super fun live-in staff and an owner who truly looks to provide the best service for his guests.
I came through Busan on a surface journey from Europe to the US via Asia and chose to stay at Popcorn after learning that Roy, the owner, had experience with freighter passengers before. It turns out that the first time he got a traveller who wanted to cross the Pacific by container, he got very excited about it and helped her find and book a voyage through the local agent.
I had already booked my passage after a month of research, but had I known, Roy could have provided most of the information himself and saved me 25% on my fare. Nonetheless, it was great to have an host who was interested in my travels and flexible about extending my stay day by day while the ship was delayed.
In 7 months, this was the only time I found someone in hospitality to not only have more than a passing interest in my journey, but to want to help every guest with their travel needs, no matter how unusual.More
