A really good hostel, so good that it feels more like a good hotel ! It's really clean and the only thing that they should improve is the lighting, because they have beautiful decorations and very nice rooms... lighted by white neons.

One of the best hostels anywhere. It's full of nice and beautiful details, a real work of art - the common room even has a samurai armor (and easily the most gigantic tv I've ever seen in a hostel). Rooftop terrace with a view of the castle. The owner and staff are super nice, and this place feels like a perfect cross between a family business and a fun hostel where to meet other travellers.

Please change your directions!! You do not cross the bridges you go past them. Two hours walking across bridges made me look slightly mad. When you do find it easy.

The best hostel I have ever stayed in. Very beautiful decorations in the building and each of us have a private small Japanese-style room.

Great location -- only a ten-minute walk from the main downtown area. The hostel itself is a gorgeous blend of traditional ryokan architecture and modern Japanese design. However, the hostel was a little pricier than places I had stayed elsewhere and the women's dorm was tiny. That being said, the staff were friendly and helpful.

I went to this hostel in January and I liked it but Ididn't love it. This time, it was way better. The beds were more comfy and the bathroom cleaner. It would be better if we could rent towel and there was shampoo in the bathroom.
