        Nice for that priceIn general it is a convenient and nice place to stay but they didn't let us know about the heating system and it was freezing cold first night untill a Korean person join to the room and adjust it. It is so close to subway station and Jagalchi but we needed to take the subway for almost 1 hour to go to Haeundae so if your privilage is to visit Haeundae you may prefer somewhere else.

        Above averageThe hostel itself is ok. But not any more than ok. For the price paid in Busan it delivered what we needed which was a well located accommodation close to the metro line. Although it is a little tricky to find. The issue with our stay was the staff. On our first night we had an intruder in our private room. One of the staff members proceeded to let himself into our room at midnight. Unbeknown to us, the power supply for the whole of the first floor AC system was located in our room and had somehow become faulty. The staff member (who spoke no English) entered our room, which woke us up, turned the light on and started saying AC, AC, before he was in told to get out! Other than the night intruder, which returned again the second night at 10:30pm to apologise (he knocked and waited to be let in this time) and the fact that there is only 1 bathroom on the second floor for too many rooms/dorms, our stay was satisfactory.

It is also near the bus stop and subway station, making commuting very easy. The room itself is clean and comfortable. They provide all the things as listed on the app and you can easily chat the manager if you need any help. Super reliable!

        Pros: Easy check in and check out. Good location directly opposite to BIFF Square. Cons: Have to take note that the hostel is at third and fourth floor. This must be taken into consideration especially if you have to carry your heavy luggages up four flights of stairs. Staff speaks minimal English. No breakfast provided as advertised. No big issues up to here. However, the worst of aspect of my stay would definitely be the blankets with strong body odour. Thankfully there is one extra blanket on the extra bed. I really hope that the owner will take this seriously as cleanliness is the basic requirement for a good hostel even the budget ones.

        This hotel is the best in Busan and very near from Jagalchi Subway Station. Close to Jagalchi Market”

        This hostel is really suit & perfect for backpackers or business traveller because the rooms & kitchen is really clean. I am quite surprised because the receptionist (owner) just check our passport and checked us in right way without any deposit. They even provide simple breakfast (bread, jam & egg). For breakfast, we have to make our own because their policy are self service. Really worth for the price paid because the location are close to all tourist attraction and subway. From this hostel, we just have to turn left and walk about 50 metre and start to bargain with the locals for the seafoods that they sells o at alleys and Jagalcgi Wet Market.

        The location is nice and near the Jagalchi Station Exit 5. The hostel feels homey. Everything is perfect except for: 1. No adapter of your gadget. You have to buy or bring your own. 2. The owner/staff is so noisy. He takes advantage (touchy) to my girl friends. 3. He is rude. He doesn't want to open the light in the table because of too much consumption he said. 4. The kitchen sink is smelly. 5. The toilet is shaky. It is cheap with very nice location but got turned off with the staff Lee. Will never return again.

        Just across BIFF a few steps away”

        Firstly. you have to be aware that there's 4 flights of stairs. There's 51 steps in total because my room was the very top. I lugged a huge luggage since I was travelling for long time. the 2nd floor is Ediya coffee. 4rd floor receptionist, kitchen rooms. 5th floor is another room connected to Attic. Security is good. all doors have passcode including main. rooms are very clean. hallways too. there are mirrors. staff cooked breakfast. I think the washroom needs more hooks n racks to put our stuff. it is old bathroom on 5th. 4th floor have toilet n 2 showers. 2 showers are not easy to maneuver not sure where to put my dirty clothings. need more hooks. good hot water. large bed ladies get a makeup table inside room w hair dryer provided. free coffee. forget about washer. I felt it looked old so I will wait to do my laundry later somewhere. from here outside. I just walk across biff to get hotteok for breakfast. I love how close everything is. look for building PIFF. close to nampo underground shopping. night it was cold. so i took another blanket from an empty bed. very comfy afterwards. have privacy curtain around bed n 2 charger. A few steps theres the G25 store. i bought my cashbee card n load up there.

        Location was good but it was difficult to find without internet. Its on the 3rd floor of a building housing a coffee shop. Also, 24 hr reception is advertised, but if you check in after 11pm, the door is locked (code is 1234) and you have to call(with provided wifi) to be told your room. Breakfast is toast and cook your own eggs, which I enjoyed.

        Pros: 1) Nampo subway station & BIFF is within walking distance (reachable within 3-5mins) 2) Free breakfast with toast, jam & egg (egg need to be cooked by own) Cons: 1) Staff didn't inform that the main door will be locked at night, we were lucky by successfully opened the door with random pin code. Else, we would be sleeping on the street. 2)Only 2 bathrooms with attached toilet available in 3rd floor. 1 is usable for shower (with wooden door) while another 1 is half glass (slightly blur) and the door can't be closed firmly. 3) 1 toilet in 2nd floor (next to common area) with broken lock, cannot be used at all.
