        This is certainly a very lovely hostel, feels cozy and comfortable. I was staying in a private room and I got a double bed to myself with my own bathroom for a very good price. There is a nice rooftop and kitchen where you can make your own food and they offer a small breakfast (toast cereal juice etc). It was quite quiet there, which made meeting new people a little hard, however this is such a nice little place I believe it needs some more attention and more travellers as it definitely deserves it!! The hostel is situated in Seomyeon, a very very busy central part of Busan with cafes, restaurants, shops, bars, clubs, karaokes, etc etc. But the area directly around the hostel is quiet so it's easy to sleep. The staff here are very very lovely and helpful!! Thank you so much Blue Backpackers, I hope I can come again :)

        It was the bare bones

        My wife and I never stay in a city to stay in a hotel, so we were looking for a nice place to stay but not the entire weekend. We found the Blue Backpackers Hostel and it was perfect. We were coming in late from Incheon so I sent a message to that affect to the management. We had never been to Busan before in our lives but the directions given to us were perfect we did not get lost once. We got in around 11:30 and the management was there with a smile on his face, while he showed us around the hostel. The room was clean and had everything we needed for the weekend. The Blue Backpackers Hostel was everything we wanted in a place to stay, clean quiet and cheap. If you just looking for a place to put your head down for the night, this is the place.

        Blue Backpackers Hostel worked out perfectly for us. It was pretty conveniently located about a 10-15 minute walk from Seomyeon station. That station has the two main lines you'll need for a lot of activities in Busan. There are also lots of good restaurants and cafes in the area. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We were able to check in late and they gave us lots of great food recommendations in the area. The breakfast was simple but good and they have water machines to refill your bottles. The attached bathroom in our room was Korean style (no separate shower stall), but big and clean. Overall a great stay and I would stay again when I return to Busan.

        Blue Backpackers was a very nice accommodation. Breakfast was included. It was a small breakfast, which is typical, but the option was nice. There was coffee, tea, cereal, toast, and eggs available for you to make yourself if you wished. The location was a little further from the station than I anticipated but it was not hard to get to the hostel and it was easy to get to using the bus as well. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful which made the stay that much better. Will definitely stay here again in the future!

        it was a great experience to stay at the blue backpakcers. cheap price but the room and toilet were clean and tidy. just treat it like your home and don't expect they'll give you hotel quality facilities since it's a hostel and you can tell by the price they offer. good for budget travellers like me who like to spend money in food and shopping rather than accommodation. the host jin was very friendly and always offer help when i needed. great experience and i'm looking forward to visit this hostel again later in the future.

        Spent a very good time at this hostel”

        Close to Buam metro station. Many restaurants nearby. Central point to major spots.

        The staff was friendly and could communicate in fluent English. I found the room clean and tidy. After 23:00, the hostel was quiet. I am quiet sure that I will stay at this hostel again if I come to Busan in the future.

        Nice hostel with a friendly owner”

        Air conditioned, fan, clean, comfortable

        The hostel was about 10 minutes for the Seomyeon station. The beds were clean and she provided small towels if you need it. The room had a air conditioning unit that worked well and a fan. The owner was really nice. The breakfast was just eggs, toast, and orange juice. I would say the price is quite expensive for a hostel in South Korea. We stayed in a dorm style room with 6 bunk beds. They do that lockers in the room which was nice. It takes about 40 minutes to Haeundae Beach by subway.

        An affordable great guesthouse”

        Single room condition, guesthouse environment, staff can speak english quite well

        easy going guesthouse management. when i arrive, there is no one in the counter, after waiting for few minutes, i notice that there is a notice saying that we can use the public phone (around the cupboard) to phone the staff. when i phone the staff, she asks me for my name and the type of room that i booked, (i booked single room), then she just asks me to take the single room key and go to the room (she tells me the room is not locked). then i ask her my friend want to stay here too but she doesnt make a booking, then the staff also asks my fren just grabs the key and go to the dormitory! well, it's really easy going guesthouse. the single room condition is nice, there are shampoo and body wash in the toilet too. i have very good sleep at there. but the subway station not that near like what i see from here, you nid to walk pass a few streets, and a lot of shops to reach the subway station (15 mins walk). but there are variety type of shops including lotte department, coffee shops, cosmetics shops, a lot of good food shops and stalls along those streets which are very nice!!! it's a great guesthouse to meet what you (basic) need. :)

        nice clean hostel”

        Clean, air con, private(ish) bathroom

        Lovely hostel. only stayed a night to get to Gimhae airport in the early hours before any bus or train could take me. but was pretty clean. the bathroom is shared only with roommates, so its fairly private, considering its a hostel. There is however, no water pressure for the shower. the rooms have aircon, so thats always a plus in the summer. its about a 10 min walk from seomyeong subway station, the directions are pretty clear on the website, i did not get lost at all

        Cozy room but little bit far from subway station ”

        cheap and nice owner, bathroom in every single room

        I just stayed 1 night there with my close friend. I used dubble standard room(?, don't remember well), and it has bathroom. it's nice. Hostel owner were very kind and nice! Location is near Seomyeon station, which can transfer to line #1 and 2. it's quite good. However, it took about 10 mins from subway station to hostel. looks not that safe at late night. I recommend you to visit this hostel if you want to save your money!

        Value for money”

        Staff, Facilities, Location

        Friendly staffs. Room was satisfactory. Location was pretty good as well. I do want to highlight that even though my friend puked on the bed due to excessive drinking and that we failed to inform them of it and of course it was our mistake, they should have informed us before charging to my friend's card instead of informing us after they charged to my friend's card. Either way we would have paid up. Otherwise, everything else was satisfactory and that I'd recommend this place for its value.
