    Stayed there 5 years ago, stayed there again this year. Still a great hostel, one of the best i've been in japan, staff and owners are very friendly, nice and helpful, the hostel is beautiful, with great facilities and in a perfect location, peaceful part of town yet close to the center and shops. Go there, get the room with the garden view and enjoy your stay.
