The area is basically an old house which they put several partitions and bunk beds up so that they have rooms and mixed rooms. From my perspective as a person who hasn't dealt with many Japanese homes at the time, that was interesting. Staff was friendly and tried to make conversation. When a couple of guests were talking in Japanese, the staff and said guests were trying to be inclusive with me in it. That was nice.

Charming little hostel with very friendly (English speaking) staff. It takes about 20 minutes on foot to reach it when coming from the JR train station, but it's located very close to the Zenkoji temple. Locals visit the common room in the evening sometimes so it's also a good place to practice your Japanese.

From the moment I arrived I felt welcomed as a guest rather than a customer. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, sharing tea, some delicious local grapes and conversation. The rooms are up she, pretty steep stairs, so if you have mobility issues that might be a challenge. The bunks in the dorm are clean and spacious. The futons are very comfortable. Nagano can be a little chilly, so extra blankets are available. I cannot recommend this hostel enough. It's incredible. Stay there!

Would not recommend. Extremely frustrating as they close from 11am-4pm so you can't use any facilities in that time. The staff were very nice and friendly but not knowledgeable about the area or things I was asking about, they sent me places I shouldn't have gone twice. NO AIR CONDITIONING. It was boiling hot in the room and they just had a couple of weak fans. Close to zenkoji temple though.

Thank you for your message. On the day you stayed, it was the one of the warmest night in Nagano. As we put the information on the hostelworld.com, we do not have air conditioning system since it won't be so warm usually... We do not have lock out time and we provide the entrance code for guests so you could stay in the hostel between 11am to 4pm. You could use all facility in the hostel for sure. Our staff did not explain to you properly, I guess. Sorry for inconvenient. We will improve upon these problems from the next time. Thank you again for staying with us. OWNER / ORIE

Cozy, comforting, welcoming, friendly. Close to the Zenkoji Temple, 5 am Buddhist service--not to be missed! Easy walk from the station.
