14 April 2017 - My Airbnb apartment near Busan Station

This was the building where my airbnb apartment was located.
The nearest station was Busan station, exit 1.
I took this picture during the day time but I reached the apartment at around 8.35pm.
My host picked me up in her car somewhere near Busan Station.
I was quite grateful to her for waiting for me and was very surprised when I saw her!
She was actually a Russian who married to a Korean guy.
No wonder she replied in very few words whenever I text her.
Reply was not very fast but good enough.
Well, that was before I checked in.
Communication did not went well after I checked in....
A 24 hour supermart near the building ^^
My host showed me around the place.
I booked this place becos I like Green ^^
I felt very comfortable as I stepped into the apartment.
However, my host came up with something that killed the the amiable relationship which has been built up so far.
She gave me a contract to sign and it was all in Korean.
Obviously, I could not understand the contract.
She told me it was a formality, not by Airbnb and that she would tear it up after my stay.
So to sign or not to sign???
I signed without much choice.
Come to think of it, I should have reported this to Airbnb after my stay.

A double bed in the lower floor and two single mattresses on the upper deck.
This apartment cost lesser than the one I booked in Hongdae.
Love the green!
This stupid hole on the wall right in front of my bed was my nitemare.  This was also the main reason why I will never recommend this apartment to anyone despite the good reviews in the Airbnb website for this host. It happened at around 10.30pm on one of the nites during my stay. I was having my shower when suddenly there was a very loud siren and the security guard was talking very loudly through this hole. It certainly scared the hell out of me. Imagine a siren and voice suddenly came out from nowhere and I did not know what he was talking about. I looked out the fire...nobody was running out of the building. I heard voices along the corridor but I did not open my door to ask.  I checked the volume of the TV.  It was quite soft actually. So what the HELL was going on???!!!!  Till todate I have no idea. I messaged my host to ask what was the security guard talking about and why was there a siren.  She did not reply.  Okie fine, maybe she was sleeping.  My fault. I waited almost 5 mins for her reply but no reply. I called her instead cos the guard was still talking. My host told me to ignore the siren becos she was not sure what was going on. Huh....

Her office was located in the same building, so how could she not know anything about it.  Anyway, the security guard voice came out from that bloody hole on the wall again on the next day. I ignored it and went to sleep becos I did know what he was talking about.  I messaged the host again on my last day of stay but no reply from her at all.  I could not find any excuse for her not to reply.  Hence, that's it.  This host is terrible.

All the basic neccessity you need can be found in the apartment.
I will not recommend this apartment to anyone becos of the terrible experience with the stupid siren and the host seemed not to care much after I checked in. Not forgetting the contract she wanted me to sign.
