                Nice place to meet people”

                Friendly and helpful staff

                The guest house is only about ten minutes from Haeundae Station/metro. It's also about a block away from several limousine bus stops, so it's easy to get to. Everybody working there is really helpful and are nice to people to talk to (if you can speak Korean or Japanese[for some of the workers]). There's free wi-fi in the area, a few computers on each floor, and everything is still modern and new looking. There's free breakfast every morning (eggs, toast, coffee, juice). The hotel is about 2 blocks away from the beach, shopping areas, and the aquarium. It's also only a few stations away from the largest department store in the world. I would stay here again when I go to Busan.

                Great place except... ”

                location, cleanliness, friendly staff

                The Story Guest House is a great little hostel. I stayed in a private room, no bath. The room was spotlessly clean and super comfortable. Flat screen TV, Aircon, plenty of outlets to recharge phone, ipad, etc. There were a few things I wasn't comfortable with. First and foremost, the hostel is on the 6 and 7th floor of a building. On the 8th floor is a Karaoke. There is no amount of soundproofing that stops the sound of the Karaoke coming through the floorboards. It doesn't stop till 1AM on weeknights, and who knows when on weekends. Its not terribly loud, but if you are a light sleeper, like me, its a problem. Another minor thing I didn't much like was the design of door to my private room. It Running down the side of the door is a frosted glass window "looking" into the common room. It let in a little too much light when I was trying to sleep and allows pretty much anyone outside your room to see the state of dress you are in, while not seeing any clear details. It was a minor note... and I understand a hostel is not a place to care too much about privacy. Overall though, the place is really great. Just get a room on the 6th floor if you are a light sleeper.

                Near beach, Clean and comfortable room

                Stay on 4th November. Suited at Haeundae Beach. The best time to stay is summer. Due to end autumn is the low season for the Hostel there are not many people staying here. All the beach activity had already close. I choose to stay because it easy to reach Yunggangsa Temple, Busan aquarium. Since this area is one of the hottest area in Busan, a lot of restaurant suited here. And some of the shop here operate 24 hours. So you do have problem of food and groceries.

                Stayed in Story for 1 night. Great place with fantastic facilities and wonderful people. Though quite a distance to walk to the train station, it was quite a nice and scenic walk. The staff at Story are friendly and helpful. Had a really fun and enjoyable stay. I will definitely go back again on my next trip to Haeundae Beach.

                So lovelyyyy!!”

                Beautiful room, comfortable with wide window for views, easy to get to know others at night, fast service

                The room was amazing, beautifully decorated with wide window that you can look at the city~ The room with double bed which we stayed in was a bit small but comfortable so we were satisfied. Internet access easy as, fast service in solving our problems when tv didnt work. Staff can speak english which is convenient. Fast access to night market nearby, haeundae beach and big shopping department stores like shinsegae.However, because of that, it is far from other very popular tourist places such as jagalchi markets, which takes 1hr approximately to get there by public transport. All in all, if beach and big department stores are the type of thing you're looking for, this place is perfect!! Price is super good per night too.

                Definitely the best hostel I've ever stayed at! Everything was well organized, clean and the staff was super nice (they even came partying with us a few times after their shift ended). Breakfast was western toast and eggs which you cook yourself, and it was included in the room price. Showers were also clean and the common room a great place to meet up with other travellers in the evenings. I would recommend this to all young travellers on a fun holiday in Busan!

                It is close to metro station and not too far from city centre

                The hostel was a little hard to locate as many locals do not know where the building, named Maritime Tower/House was located. I managed to find it at last. In winter it is not a peak season and there were few visitors on the beach. The breakfast is complimentary and quite good. The hostel is served by a lift; there are rooms on 5th and 7th floor. But in winter it appears only rooms on the 7th floor are open.
