great area near kanayama station and beautiful place.


Great for backpackers but wouldn't recommend this place for people with medium to large suitcases. It's a tiny hostel with 1-2 facilities and very convenient for people who are travelling light. Staff were nice and could speak English


Hostel Ann is small but comfortable for us. The staffs are great and there's great chance to meet other travellers. It's not far from station and not hard to find.

I realized the hostel is named "Hostel Ann" is because the owner is a Japanese girl Ann. Ann was very kind to introduce me everything about her hostel, we had some converstation about operating a hostel, and the reason why she wants to open a hostel. It is a lovely small hostel inside traditional Japanese house. I am happy she is going to have a new little life coming in her world, congratulations!


This hostel was very accommodating and the staff was very friendly. I especially liked the map for finding local restaurants with information about the food type and price - it was very helpful for when we needed to find dinner after a long day of transferring trains.


-staff are very friendly and can speak moderate english -they have party event though we did not join -facilities are good, especially like the toilet on the ground floor -they have warm air conditioning in each room -location is great as kanayama is a cool place for connecting places in nagoya PS: -its so heart-warming that on the xmas night we all got a gift from the hostel!!!!


My only criticism: the doors to the dorm room were thin so (without earplugs) I could hear noise from the hallway outside the room at night. With earplugs I was fine. Not the fault of the hostel: inconsiderate people using hair dryers at night.


My stay at hostel ann was excellent I must say. Great staff and great place to stay in. It was located about 10mins from the subway station which is great too!! Will definitely stay there again if I were to visit Nagoya again in the future ;)

The heater somehow cannot warm the room. Only have one blanket which is still quite cold even with heater turned on

A very nice hostel. Quiet neighborhood but close to public transport and a 25 minute walk or short bike ride from more lively parts of town. There are restaurants and such in the neighborhood, so really location is quite solid. The building is really nice and blends Japanese style w/ western style very well. Only two showers but you can write your name on a list if there is a wait. Cute common room and TV/couches, good kitchen, and lovely staff. I'd certainly recommend staying here!


Good place to stay, dorm rooms have closing curtains at bed, so that's good if you want to sleep early and don't want to get awake by the light. Good facilities and fine base to visit Nagoya.


Really enjoyed staying at Hostel Ann Nagoya. Very good atmosphere and well situated, near enough to a subway station and yet not too much in the center of town where we could enjoy a quite and calming walk back to the hostel. The only gripe a few of us had was just that one of the shower rooms was a deep bathtub which was a bit hard to get in (the rest of us didn't mind as we thought it adds character to your hostel. The staff were excellent and helpful and definitely made us feel welcomed


The location is very convenient. easy accesible from kanayama station. there are few convenient stores nearby.
