I love the puffiness of bed and blanket. Staffs are very friendly and informative. Its location is awesome. Just 5 minutes walk from train station and town area.

Good hostel - huge dorm rooms with big beds and loads of room for luggage etc. Showers all on the ground floor and not as much room as some places I've stayed. Overall the placelooks like it needs a bit of a makeover but is clean, roomy and quiet.

The kitchen and the living room are too small. The rest is ok

In general the staff was nice except for one strange guy .... Felt sometimes uncomfortable since he never greeted or talked and was more busy with checking if the lights are off.. Doors are closed...or if you have the "right" slippers on..rather than being concerned that everything is OK.

Another great place with the J-Hoppers label. Very close the train station, well-equipped kitchen, every sort of rental gear imaginable (they lend you snow boots for free!), friendly staff. The hostel atmosphere is cozy but never disturbing. Japanese-style family room was by far the best accomodation we had in our twenty days in Japan. Look no further.

Great location with added value tour to Shirakawa-go. Perhaps it's time to change the mattress as it's not that comfortable to sleep on. Kind of thinning.

No complaints about this one. Spacious, cozy dorms, good kitchen, heating, close to the train and bus station. For cheaper food, walk away from the tourist zone (south, or west of the tracks).

Great atmosphere! I particularly enjoyed the scheduled events and downstairs lounge! I went on the Thursday tour with Mr. Yato and it was an excellent time with good company. I also enjoyed the international party on Friday! This was one of the best hostels I stayed at to meet other travelers in Japan.

The bedroom was way too cold to me, and the heater was not working. A blanket solved the problem, of course, but this is the only comment I have about this hostel. A very friendly staff, good galley, comfortable bedrooms. Good location, close to some restaurants. You have to walk a bit for the hiking trail there is in the city, but nothing that can break your motivation. I totally recommend it.

It was easy to find, quite clean as guests have to take their shoes off before entering the premises, and definitely value for money. The people that work there are helpful and can speak English. This is the first time I've stayed in a hostel and not having my own bathroom was weird but got used to it. The public toilets and bathroom were clean so I was happy enough. Would recommend this place.
