The location is quite good, literally in the middle of the busy food street of Haeundae and about 10 mins walk from the train station.

Great value and location, right down the street of the fish market, a 5 minute walk to the beach and subway.

As a solo and budget traveller, the most important for me is laundry and it was free at this property.

        Great Stay!”

        Uncle Guesthouse was a fine place to stay. Location is perfect: right in the middle of the Korean traditional market at Haeundae beach. Price for the room is pretty fair. Air-con in the rooms. The rooms and guesthouse is not big, but perfect for solo travelers looking to save some money and be close to the beach. Main living area does not have a computer available for use, but there is free wi-fi there. There are also a few PC rooms within five minutes walking distance. The beach is about seven or eight minutes away by foot. Keep in mind, no breakfast is served and there is one single bathroom/shower for all guests. The owner HyungKyu was very kind and sent a personal confirmation right after I booked. I would stay here again, good experience. Thanks!

        The host is Tom. He is super helpful and informative. The location is just a three mins walk away from Haeundae station exit 3. The place is in the market area, which makes you full all the time with the local tradition food. The place accommodates washing machine, heater, fan, TV, microwave and kitchen ware including mugs, plates, spoons... it is just like your home in Busan. Highly recommend! I will definitely come back if I am in Busan again.

        Very good”

        Stayed here for 3 nights. This place is basically a Korean house turned hostel. There's 3 rooms in the house, 1 room for the owner, 1 for females and 1 for males. There's only 1 toilet/bathroom in the house for all to use. There's also a common kitchen for all to use. There's a bed heater on every bed (not sure if it's working), but no personal light, curtain and plug. Checking in and out is very easy. In fact, the owner will give you the passcode to the door nearing to your check in date, so you could simply just enter the house without his presence. The partitions in the house are very thin, you can literally hear the conversation in the hall if you are a light sleeper. Wifi is quite stable. The location is quite good, literally in the middle of the busy food street of Haeundae and about 10 mins walk from the train station. If you are a budget traveler and not fussy about the place you are going to stay, I think this is okay for you.

        The location is good but that's pretty much it...only one toilet/bathroom and the water purifier was broken so I had to walk out and buy water all the time. It was the cheapest place on agoda, but it ended up being more expensive than a lot of places because I both had to buy water and breakfast, which are included in other and better guesthouses.

Lots of windows so it's really, really bright when the sun comes up. Bring an eye mask. Girls' room has two mirrors, blow dryer, straightener and other toiletries. Wifi was good.
