Very close distance to the JR station but is also away from the main section on a nice quite street. There is a store right out side the door that you can grab food at real quick if need be. The lounge area was amazing and was a great place to relax. The wifi does not work in the bedrooms so that was a bit of a problem because you would have to go all the way downstairs to check any emails, research destinations, etc... enjoyed my stay none the less.


The hostel was ok, but the female dorm was very small and you didn't have any privacy, as the beds didn't have curtains. Also the upper beds were really close to the ceiling and the light right on your face. On the other hanbd, the common room was nice and the staff was very helpful.


navigating to the hostel wasnt as easy, especially in the dark when the streets arent lit up. i had to depend on my phone to find way back. i had to also lug my luggage up the stairs to my room which was a bit inconvenient. however, the was a really nice common place for everyone to chill and get to know each other and the staff were really friendly and helpful too


Mixed up with Ana hotel which is on other side of kanayama station.Luckily met a local kind girl took me there.It took me about an hour from kanayama stat to search for this hostel which is quite far from town area.Thanks god , everything is fine.I met few good friends here.


Nice place and comfortable for staying.


The facilities were beautiful and very comfortable. The staff is incredibly welcoming and are very kind. This is my second time staying there and was not disappointed. The building feels more like someone's home than a hostel. The only improvement that could be made would be to add more convenient plugs in the bedrooms.


this is so far my favourite hostel. it is beautiful with some japanese style, comfortable common area, nice staff and ok price.

The place was nice, close to one of the train stations (not Nagoya station but still one that connects to the airport and other places), in quite a cool area. A little expensive compared to say Kyoto or Osaka, but then this is Nagoya. The staff are really friendly. The Kitchen only has one hob so if someone else is using it you have to wait, but it has a decent computer and TV with English channels in the common room area. Lockers and doors that lock is good too. Nice place.


All in all, it was a pleasant stay. The security, location, staff and atmosphere were definitely not lacking, although I thought the building was not as modern/clean or well-insulated as I might have liked. (Maybe this is a little harsh; in any other country this would be a top-tier hostel, but Japan's standards are very high! :P)


very nice and cozy, all facilities are well managed. a little bit far from downtown

Best thing: we were able to leave our luggage a day earlier before we checked in at no charge! Staff were super friendly and spoke fluent English. Meh: Our twin room was super duper small! Somehow, the water heater died halfway too... However, given the price and proximity to many things in town, this place is definitely recommended for backpackers!


Very close to the station.
