We had three things in mind when we booked our hostel in Busan. We want a property that's cheap, close to the beach, and has great reviews. A quick search on Airbnb led us to Ark Blue Hotel, a modern-looking accommodation in Haeundae district that promises proximity to the beach and offers fully-equipped capsule dormitories. Almost instantly we made our booking, and as soon as we checked in, we knew we made the right decision.

Ark Blue Hotel may not charge much, but we never felt that our stay was compromised. Our single beds in the capsule dormitory were slightly wider than usual (though, admittedly, a bit hard), and the in-room bath looked very sleek. Each capsule has a stowable table that can be used for dining and study, as well as two wall sockets, which made us (our gadgets, rather) very happy. In terms of security, you may be delighted to know that Ark Blue Hotel's rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art lock system, which provided us utmost security. For a stay that's very cheap, we really did not see all these things coming.

If you're looking for a private room, you may also want to check out Ark Blue Hotel's offerings, which look just as noteworthy:

Very pleasantly surprised by this hotel! The room was very comfortable and clean... It’s right by the beach and close to the subway station - quite nice to come back to the quiet area after a day of exploring.
