Wonderful host! Highly recommend! ”

We had a great 3 night stay at Busan Backpackers. Jay, the owner, was more like a tour guide helping with questions and taking us to good/cheap meal spots and seafood market dinner. The hostel was also easy to meet others and was in a cool part (old town) of the city. It was a little far from going out downtown but was well worth the distance.

Go there!!!”

The best stay I had in Korea so far! Jays is an amazing guy and its amazing to stay at his place. Pickles (the cat) is verx lazy, fat and hairy, but still, its a cat. Cats are cool. The location of Busan Backpackers is nice (beach and markets around) and you will get a good Busan experience. Dart and the rooftop-hamocks are fun too. just go here, you will love it!

不妨试试”

民宿的位置有点难找( 虽然主人家声称很容易找),从民宿徒步至扎嘎奇地铁站大约需要二十五分钟左右。若是有大行李箱也挺不方便的。 我住在三楼的四人间,房间内设有空调,只有风扇,感觉有点闷热。 不过,主人家Jays倒是非常热情,还有一头可爱的猫咪。
