            GoodThis hostel is fine. It's a great value for the price that is offered on Agoda. I wouldn't pay the full price though. It's about a 2 minute walk from Busan Station, but Chinatown is kind of a grungy area. Not the best neighborhood as far as aesthetics and cleanliness. Jack (staff) is super friendly and helpful though. I like the way the rooms are set up. However, I feel this place needs better ventilation. The basement has a bad smell that gets trapped down there because the door stays closed and the only window is a tiny one that is essentially blocked by the building behind it. Same thing with my dorm room. Despite keeping the window open, the bathroom traps less than pleasant smells and stays wet.

            My worst hotel stay experienceAir-conditioner can't function as it was under inspection. We referred to the lady staff, she pointed at the notice outside with her impatient face. Why we don't even been informed on this before we come. And somemore don't even prepare a fan for us, then we opened window to let fresh air come in, but who knows we can't sleep at all for the whole night because of those annoying mosquitoes! It was my worst stay during my Korea trip.

            Dodgy Area, Great Hostel”

            This hostel offers great value private rooms close to public transport. We loved this hostel with its comfortable rooms, friendly staff and good amenities but the area leaves a little to be desired. Fine for us because we're not night owls but wouldn't be the greatest place to come back to after dark. Would highly reccomend it if you like us are in to exploring during the day and staying in at night.

            the fare base is supreme value for money compare to location, facilities, cleanness and staff member. it is best suggested to people who come to busan by train because it is just opposite to busan station.

            Walking distance from Busan station and easy to locate. The guesthouse is near to convenience stores, market, banks, restaurants, and bus stop. Despite it all, the place is still quiet which is great! The room was spacious and clean. Bedsheets were new, internet connection was fast, there’s tv in my room, heater is available, and the door has double lock. I felt safe and comfortable staying here. The set of toiletries provided was complete. The receptionist was helpful and always greets the guests. It’s like I stayed in a high-end hotel. I got more than my money’s worth 🙂

            3 nights quad family room with private toilet”

            Very small room , with fried food smell once the door is opened. The entrance itself sort of turn us off as it don’t look inviting with used towels on the basket right next to entrance . The common kitchen is just not well maintained, dishes are not cleaned and it has smell. The location is the greatest good point it’s so convenient to go places with bus/train/metro just within walking distance and food is easily available . Won’t return though as the condition of the guesthouse is below acceptance compare to other guesthouse we have stayed before

            Cleanliness is not so good”

            The traffic is convenient and the staffs are very kind. I like the lounge there. It's really free and made me relax. You can stay there lately and don't need worried about disturbing the others cause it's at an independent floor. But The bathroom was leaking water and the building seems old. And also, there's no elevator. According to I'm attaching great importance to cleanliness, I still won't choose there again.

            Good location & Helpful staff ”

            The location was good, near to Busan Subway station exit 5, and helpful staff even there is a small episode happened during the stay. The room & washroom was bigger than what I expected, but just one thing, there is no lift in the building. Overall is a good stay at the guesthouse.
