This was an aesthetically pleasing, very well appointed generous little guest house. My teenage family felt immediately welcome. My son was indulged with video games in the lounge, there were wonderful books to read and a coffee machine! It was so close to the station and the river, and we caught a tram out the front to the Peace Park, very convenient. It was very small but the people running it were so lovely no one felt cramped. Lots of lovely touches and thoughtful design.
The location is excellent. However, that's all about it. The hostel doesn't shut the lights off during the night, so it's hard to sleep. It felt like a thousands of degrees in the room, since there are many people sleeping in the same room. And it's hard to find the hostel, even since it's very near to the main station. It's a very small door in the street next to the street lights, I walked 5 times next to it and didn't see it...however, it has a small sign on the door, so keep staring at walls
Nice, friendly and helpful staff. Domo arigato gozaimasu to all of you!

OK stay at Akicafe. Initially very hard to find as the directions in the email are incorrect (the lights after the tram stop, not before), there was no easily visible sign outside, and the okonomiyaki restaurant's sign was in kanji so not a good landmark for a non-Japanese person. However, once found (eventually!), the location is excellent. Female dorm is OK - very hot, stuffy and bright in the top bunks and some of the bunks were too short for my height. Average value for money.
