                      Nice modern hostel”

                      Nice, new, and clean hostel with beautiful modern deco. Although the hostel is about a good 5-10 minute walk from the nearest subway station, they gave a very detailed map on how you can find their place. It's situated in a market so it was quite hard for me to lug my suitcase around. However, there are a lot of food and shopping choices around. The bed/room was really clean. They provided fresh sheets and towels and it was easy to request for new ones. Their breakfast was the best one I've had in all of the hostels I've stayed. There were a wide range of food choices aside from the usual bread and cereal of other hostels. There's also a really nice cafe located inside the hostel which serves really nice drinks and food. Overall a really nice place to stay at. Will definitely book this place again when I go back to Busan.

                      I was unable to check in on the day that I had made my booking due to some reasons, but the staff were very understanding and allowed me to check in a few days later. For this, I'm very grateful and would definitely stay again next time I'm in Busan. Rooms were good, warm and comfortable in winter. I mingled with some guests and made friends, so that was nice too. The staff that tended to me could not speak English but tried her best with a translation app. Breakfast is homemade and worth every cent AND MORE! I'm talking french toast and fresh veggies, along with a sunny side up egg on top, made for you when you reach the breakfast area. The toilets are individual and cleaned daily, and I had a great stay. No complaints! Loved this hostel and would return for the amazing breakfast and good value.

                      New hostel, nice facilities”

                      The concept of the hostel is centered around DYI (check-in, checkout, washing, make your bed etc). the strict after 4 PM check in I didn't like but they have a very cozy lounge with very nice chairs to relax. the mini washing machines in the shower areas are very cool and free to use. for the price I think they should have provided free coffee (I've stayed at cheaper places in Korea which offered that). the place ia quite loud during the evening as you can hear all the doors slamming and people checking in late need to make their bed which is also noisy.

                      FOR HOSTEL TYPE OF ACCOMODATION, THIS IS IT”

                      The best hostel or dormitory type of accommodation I have been staying by far. It is truly value for money, the location is not that bad, not too close to the subway but not too far either when the shops are along your path to subway. This place is very clean. I love most the deco of this hostel. I love how well thought the design of single cubicle of yours. At the bed area, you have ample spaces to put your belongings like a hook to put on jacket, shelf to place backpack and top shelve to put your make up bag. I request for breakfast and it is serve to you in a very comfortable and well design eating area.. i love this place.

                      Local is definitely one of the most tremendous hostels that I ve ever been to. Clean, nice location and quiet. However owner must work with his attitude. He has a talent in ruffling someone's feather only with his accent. He might be stressed out especially that day but it is definitely inappropriate to show that kind of behavior. Besides, I have no complaint about the hostel.

                      Location is near to 3 train station. The whole place dark like haunted house. It is self check-in. The whole night I cant even see a person in the whole place even the receptionist. The staff nice? I cant even find one! They off the corridor lights at night which causes even much like haunted house. Besides that, the emergency exit green light reflect on the mirror made the whole toilet scary. All the dormitory is empty, the bunk bed beside me has the bunk bed curtain covered up and I though I have a roommate, soon I realized there is no roommate in my room!!! The shower hot water is not continuous. It was autumn and the water is cold.
