Date Stayed: July 1, 2016

Price: Very affordable since this is just an overnight stay for less than 8 hrs, 636php is good enough for a bed and bathroom use.  

Location: A long walk from Busan station considering it was raining (10-12 minutes). Looks like nearby the red light street and it gets steeper on a hilly part of the road. 

Check-in: All the instructions (door passcode, locker passcode, about the keys) was emailed beforehand.  You just need to read and follow them.



Room: Dorm (1 Bed in 6-Bed Dormitory (Female) - Breakfast), you get what you pay for.  It’s a bunk bed type, so any movement from the person below or above will wake-up the other person.


It seems to be a very small room for 6.  It gets crowded when all the 6 travelers are standing and since the area has also luggage and clothes hanging from the bed railings.

The shared bathroom on 2F for ladies are enclosed, so I commend that for privacy.  There is a separate room for toilet.  And there is a mirror wall for make-up routines. 

Culinary Experience: Breakfast is included. They have cereals, bread and hot water (coffee and tea).




Need to ponder:  After taking a bath, when I get back to the room there’s a kimchi smell which in my opinion stinks. With that I tried to change my succeeding reservation from dorm to private room.

Verdict: If just a short overnight lay over, could still be a good choice due to enclosed shared bathroom.  But if doing a long stay, better find another one like in Seomyeon station for a quicker transfer to Subway Line 2 (for Sasang station to the airport) and Subway Line 3 (for Busan station).  Plus there is a wide variety of choices on restaurants and shopping areas in Seomyeon station.
