I loved my stay in One Way! I made friends and meaningful connections in both of the hostels they have. The tasks are very easy and the majority of days you finish very fast, leaving you time to enjoy Busan. As the vibe here is very chill, we ended up having movie nights or playing pool in the social basement. And if you want to visit other places it is also very easy as you are next to Busan station, meaning a lot of options to move around the city.

I stayed at the OneWay Hostel for 4 weeks :) It was my first volunteering experience and I‘m happy with that! My fellow volunteers (4 to 7 people) were always wonderful and nice to work and hang out with. The other two people you’re gonna work with are Sean (the owner) and John (like a replacement of Sean when he’s not there). Both speak english really well and are korean (so you can also speak korean to them). Very wonderful people! Especially John is a wholesome person all around. What’s important to note imo are the working hours (1pm-3pm). Other than that I really liked it! :) Cheers

Don't hesitate to volunteer at One Way Guesthouse: Sean and John (boss & manager) are adorable, caring and attentive to volunteers' needs! The atmosphere is chill among the volunteers, and it's super easy to meet new people if that's what you're looking for.

++ Busan is a superb city to discover.

My time at OneWay was nothing short of amazing. The work is incredibly fair and the staff is understanding and overall great to be around. Couldn’t recommend this experience more

Ha siso una experiencia increíble, siento que he formado un grupo maravilloso con gente increíble. En cuanto al trabajo, muy fácil y rápido, nos turnamos entre los voluntarios las tareas a realizar para la guess house, entre cambio de sabanas, baños, aspiradora y lavandería, y hacemos las habitaciones asignadas para cada día, algunos días se tarda menos de 1h, y otros 2h, pero nunca más. Esto deja mucho tiempo libre para conocer la ciudad, que me encantó, y a los demás voluntarios. Recomendaría al 100% la experiencia.
