    Highly recommended for group @ backpackers! Superb location, easy excess to jagalchi, subway, bus stop from airport etc. Staff was super helpful & can speak english. Kitchen is available. No elevator provided, u have to climb up to the 3rd floor, but it was fine !Not a big deal coz u dont go up & down often in a day, most of the time u spent your time outside. For sure will come back to popcorn hostel.

    Location is super great to access which is just at Jagachi metro station n from exit 10 walk straight to cross to junction. Very convenience to take Metro to everywhere in Busan. Hostel just opposite BIFF n PIFF Mall. Fish market just next to the street. Seafood everywhere by foot step. The advantage of the hostel make our family more closer n we enjoying for the double deck bedroom which our kid never experience before. We also enjoy the morning breakfast where we can use the kitchen facility to cook our own meals which hostel only provided bread n egg but we do buy some extra food from LOTTE Mart n make it more wonderful breakfast n our kid enjoy the breakfast moment very much. Thanks

    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.

    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.

    Location is super great. Just right opposite, we could walk to BIFF in Nampo. It is located on the third floor of a building. (up of Ediya Coffee (2nd floor); opposite of Goresa Fish Cake) The staff and facilities are great. Only the staff could not speak English well, but we still manage to communicate with body language XD

    Clean & decent place. The bed mattress is hard, just fyi. We had a problem with the digital door lock, as it is not working well. Location is good, next to Jagalchi Market & opposite nampo-dong street shopping. Do bear in mind - there's a karaoke place next door & can get noisy.

    i stayed for 3 nights here. the location is super nice. close to most of attractions here. just go to the exit 4 from jagalchi station and the hostel is right above the Ediya Coffee on the 3rd floor. during my stay, i was alone in the female dorm. i feel safe because every rooms have their own pass code, no one can enter. my room is clean but no safety box in the room. it was right in front of the shared kitchen. the kitchen is greasy a bit when we arrived on the first day with some unwashed dishes. maybe because other guests left it there. the toilets downstairs are clean, but the toilet upstairs quite dirty. overall i am happy during my stay. i cooked a lot here because the fish market just around the corner.

    Walking distace from Jagalchi and Nampo subway station, PIFF Square (BIFF). Great street food. For those with bags, get on the lift from the subway, but the hostel itself is a climb up to 2nd floor on wards. My room was clean and quite as the common area was on the 2nd floor and my sleeping area was on the 3rd floor, although Im VERY sure that the toilet was'nt cleaned in all the three nights I was there. The kitchen too was dirty as most guest just left their crap after eating. If you are booking there... maybe help wash one dish that is not your own....? ;P that would make the place so much enjoyble as it really is. Mango the cat is beautiful !!! The host are tired I guess but he helped me carry my bag to 3rd floor! How wonderful is that. I would recommend for travelers on a budget :)

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!

(2) Rude, i'm an adult and so are the staff, cant they advise us properly? (3) and weren't that helpful. WIFI was very slow... cant even open a Google Map....

    Pro. Location. Lovely cat. Walk out n u can get hotteok. Biff. Walk nampo underground mall, lotte mart etc. Very close. Bed is comfy if like hard flat bed like me. Privacy curtain. 2 plugs . Mirrors. Hot showers. Security doors with passcodes. make up table. Nice staff help Cons. My friend was checking out got convertor stolen. When I was checking out got my dirty laundry w towel,sweater, undergarments, 2 garment Jean's stolen. No clue who. Unless some person dont care n when cleaning just throw out people's stuff. I am not going to assume but losing stuff is a mystery. Either mischief or severe criminal insensitivity. Have no ounce of respect for people's belongings n objects. Not enough hooks to put your clothes or whatever when u need to shower. No place to put any stuff in shower or washroom. Climb 51 steps if you stay on 5th floor. Climb 41 steps if u stay on 4th floor where kitchen n reception is together also w cat. Dont bring big luggage.

    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.

    I booked a room for 4 (2 bunk beds). Pros: Staff were friendly, the room and toilet were clean. They took care of our luggage when we checked out and had lunch nearby. If there are inquiries, the staff have no qualms with helping you. Cons: The stairs were narrow, so I would not recommend this hostel for those who have weak legs or with heavy luggage. The hostel did not have proper heating system and it was very very cold. One of the toilet/shower was outside on the third floor and imagine walking in the cold with your jammies (TIP: ASK FOR THE SECOND FLOOR ROOMS). They provided bread and jam but there was not much. I could not even find eggs to fry, was a bit let down there. I would say its perfect for budget travellers but would not recommend for families with children and elders.

    Above average”

    The 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.
