The lobby is great, has a cafe but the room, especially the bathroom was dirty and looked like it hadn’t been cleaned well. The room wasn’t clean as well. The beds were ok but there were dust and hair on the floor. Rooms are very dark, there are no overhead lights.

    Excellent Choice in Busan”

    Canvas Hostel is clean, organized, comfortable, and provides great value to all types of travelers who visit the Haeundae area of Busan. Canvas Hostel consists of 2 buildings (right across from each other) on a side street near Haeundae Beach. The staff is friendly and can speak English very well, so don't worry if you're a traveler who cannot speak much Korean language. Canvas Hostel is my favorite place to stay in Busan and you won't be disappointed if you choose to sleep in this hostel. Just make sure to check-in by 11:00 P.M. and you're good to go!

    Wonderful Place to Stay in Haeundae (Busan)”

    Canvas Hostel is clean, affordable, and it is a great place to stay near Haeundae Beach in Busan. The staff are courteous and helpful in case of any issue. For example, some of the breakfast items had already been eaten by other guests, so the staff replaced those items with other types of food. This was a creative way to solve the problem. The rooms and bathrooms are also clean. Excellent value for money, especially on weeknights. Highly recommended for any type of traveler.

    Smart Choice in Busan = Canvas”

    Canvas Hostel has a well-organized staff and treats guests respectfully. The men's dorm room was very clean and the beds were soft and easy to sleep on. The bathroom was very clean as well. Breakfast in the morning was basic, but tasty, and the indoor lounge & adjacent ground floor porch are aesthetically nice places to chat and / or enjoy breakfast. I highly recommend staying at Canvas Hostel in Haeundae (Busan).

    Budget hotel. Have laundry machine. 7-10 Minutes walk from Dongbaek Station. Use Exit 3 (with elevator) walk straight to Dominos pizza. Walk straight and turn left on the first corner. Next corner is where the hostel is You may use Exit 2 (w/o elevator) going toward Dominos pizza then Cross the road in front of the traffic light. Walk straight and turn left on the first corner. Next corner is where the hostel is. Room is clean. Bathroom definitely needs major overhaul. Hostel is cheap and you can save a lot of money.
