    Would definitely recommend. ”

    I really enjoyed my stay here. The sink basin in the women’s bathroom on the 4th floor clots up a little which was the only downer during my stay but apart from that, overall it’s a great hostel. The staff in particular are very helpful, friendly, and very accommodating. The social area was a little small but the small size paid of because I was able to meet and socialize with a lot of other hostelers which was great. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others. Thanks for a great stay Kimchee!

    Very very nice hostel. Lots of frills like electric blanket (on top of AC), personal bed light, blinds for each bed, and powder area. Great breakfast too! Only problem was the water heater didn’t work well on the first night I was there (hot water was inconsistent), but the manager was very helpful and got the repair guy to go down the next day. It was fixed by the third night. The problem was caused by the cold of winter. But I would still recommend overall. Because even w the heater problems, you could still get a good hot shower if you were patient and chose the right shower

    Good location but inconsiderate guests ”

    Everything is good until close to midnight when guests downstairs make lots of noise, obviously drunk. it continues for a few hours until they leave or if they ever. one of my worst nights adding on to my lethargy from hiking. Even though I was so tired from hiking, their noise woke me up in the middle of the night. If you want to sleep well, get ear plugs or pay more for a nicer place.

    Okay hostel ”

    Everything was okay during my stay. The place was clean and conveniently located beside a metro. There was a small problem with the shower that was fixed the same night. The only thing I wasn’t happy about was that I was told that The laundry machines were for staff only or their offered laundry service (5000 Won to wash, and another 5000 to dry) but throughout the hostel there are memos/posters advertising self service laundry for 4000 Won. Kind of annoying to long term travellers who consider laundry facilities when booking a place.

    AMAZING! EXTREMELY value for money! good location! clean! comfortable!”

    This is the perfect location. The price is VERY good. I paid $6 for one night in a 6-bed female dorm in October 2018 and for both nights there was only 1-2 other ladies in my room. You have a free locker to use. (bring your own lock, but the room itself has a security code access, so it's basically safe) The locker includes a pair of shower flip flops and two hangers. You get a THICK duvet comforter and a clean blanket. The bed and pillow are comfortable. I used the comforter as a pillow on first night as it was a cool evening in Autumn. The hot water shower was AMAZINGLY strong and SO good, there's even a changing area, with a shelf and a hook inside the shower cubicle to keep your change of clothes and toiletries dry. Hair dryers are provided at the sink and the toilets are kept very clean and dry. There are female-only floors so you can go to shower in peace. There is a lift serving the hostel floors. The lounge area has a free water cooler and complete kitchen and a large screen TV

    We booked a family room. The room was spacious and clean. However, the pantry area was a bit disappointing as cutleries were not cleaned immediately by the guests. So, basically, you'll see unfinished food, used pots and pans and cutleries lying on the table and sink area in the morning.

    I had a pleasant stay in Busan thanks to Kimchee Guesthouse. I used the guesthouse as my base to have a place to stay and store my bagage at all times. Showers are good, beds are clean and the rooms are spacious enough for single travelers. Location is very good! Really appreciate the help of Sezer by the way. He was kind and helped me with information, my baggage and other tasks. Thumbs up!

    The optional pub crawl held by Victor was a lot of fun”

    Though I have been hopping around guesthouses in Busan, there is definitely a lot of extra value in Kimchee guesthouse that comes down to the staff working in there. Not only are they willing to show you around and hang out with you, they also host different events which Victor kindly informed us about. The pub crawl as well as the rooftop party held in Gwangan were good ways to spend time and get to know more about the nightlife in Busan.

    Been staying in the guesthouse for longer than I expected. It has a great atmosphere and a big part of it is due to the staff members. Victor especially has provided with a lot of help and care for our needs while also being incredibly friendly and fun to talk to. The facilities are well worth the money itself, and the value added by the staff makes it one of the best experiences for travelers in Busan.

    Great place, great price”

    Kimchee has everything you could want in a budget accommodation. Clean, spacious rooms, helpful staff, information (on the walls) on everything to do and eat in Busan, rental wifi, plug adaptors for sale, etc. They've thought of everything. The living room is pretty comfy and a good place to meet people. It is a very large hostel so the vibe is not as friendly and cosy as some. You can easily walk to all the nightlife in Seomyeon, 1 minute from a 7/11, 2 minutes from the metro line 1 and 10 minutes from the 2; these will take you everywhere you need to go. The staff were always friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Only downside is the tiny kitchen that's usually very messy. Cooking here will be difficult. Had a great stay, I highly recommend it!

    Near to Beomnaegol Station (exit 8), this is the most important thing. You can just walk to Seomyeon Underground Shopping Center & Seomyeon Food Alley. The toilet & shower room is very clean. They have locker/luggage storage for each guest but no padlock. Bring your own padlock! But it is safe (I guess...). Didn't lose any of my stuff. The room is quite small for 6 persons. They have elevator but the waiting time is very very very long (urrgghh!!) Just use the stairs instead. From here it is very easy to go to other tourist attraction like Jagalchi Market, Busan Gamcheon Culture Village, Taejongdae Park, Gwangalli Beach, Oryukdo Skywalk. Just take the subway & bus.

    one night”

    This is the first time I tried to stay at a shared room since I usually book a private room and bathroom. There were 10 of us in the room. There were 5 bunk beds. Since I arrived late, the only option I had was the top bed. It was hard to climb up the bed since the ladder was circular. I almost fell if I didn't have a good grip while going up. The bathroom was big enough for those that are staying there. There's no breakfast but there's water available. You can also cook your food there. The pantry is rather small. The location is good and there are restaurants nearby. I had a hard time getting my luggage back after leaving it in the morning at the front desk. There was no staff around and I had to rush since I have a scheduled train back to Seoul. There was no contact information at the desk where the owner's number is given. They should provide one next time for such cases. As for the price, it's quite cheap compared to other hostels.

The location was excellent, just a short walk to the subway & the airport bus. Great beds & great hospitality.
