By far the nicest hostel I've stayed at in Japan. Comfiest beds, nice rooftop and great location :) thank you


This is the cleanest, nicest hostel I have ever been to. Came here on a recommendation of a friend and loved it! If you get the chance, definitely take the shibori class, it is a really unique and wonderful experience. The storage chests are a bit small for the average backpacker but on the whole this place is amazing! Plus Kumamoto is beautiful!!


I'd stay here again and recommend it for anybody.


This place is amazing, decoration is beautiful!


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.


The staff was very helpful, friendly and family-like!


I have been travelling nearly 3 months all over Japan and this is definetly one of the BEST hostels I stayed at so far. I can really recommend that place and would choose it again anytime. Thanks again for the amazing stay!


Near tram station, just 1 min walk, and the bed is comfy, the onwer is very helpful, waiting for me until 22:30pm, and he is an dying artist, the house is well designed and decorated, love it so much, good choice, will be back!


The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms are great, traditional Japanese. Nicely located near the major sights.


- staff : friendly - only 2 restrooms for all the guests - only 2 showers for all the guests - no soundproofing between rooms/rooms and rooms/common areas : unpleasant during night time


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.


Very good but need renovation. Now it's quite old after I stay here twice.
