Our stay with J-Hoppers Hida Takayama was a very pleasant and enriching experience. The staff were friendly and helpful - and the atmosphere in the hostel was warm and homely. We received prompt service and had access to convenient and clean amenities within the hostel. Our room was spacious and private enough for 2 persons, and our 2 nights stay were quiet and accommodating from the first day at Takayama till the last day there. Highly recommended to anyone coming to Takayama for a visit!

This was such a great hostel in an awesome location - close to the train station and a lot of attractions near by. The staff were all lovely and very helpful, giving us advice about what to do, how we could get there and how we could fit everything we wanted to do in the time we had. The hostel was clean and facilities were great. Thankyou for a wonderful stay, I loved Takayama!

This hostel had really friendly and helpful staff and is well located. I stayed in both private and dorm rooms and was really happy with both. For 3,000 yen pp, the private tatami room was real value for money.

J. Hoppers Takayama had everything I look for in a hostel. Great location, very clean, profesional staff. It is great to explore Takayama. Security is reasonable but Lockers are located out in hallway. I was given a huge single room which was nice but It was empty and felt cold. The atmosphere were very dead. Could have been the guest but the staff didn't interact or make you feel welcome. Overall it's a good place to stay if you're with friends.

Thank you for your candid comments, which will prove very valuable for us as we look to make improvements to our hostel. We are sorry to come across as cold, but in general, we do interact with our guests very often, and we even organize parties from time to time so that everyone can have fun and interact together. It may sometimes be difficult to keep the spirits up all the time, depending on our energy level and also whether we are busy that day. But we will try our best!

Conveniently located, meets the needs of backpackers. Staying here is convenient to explore all attractions in Takayama. Expect no major surprise or shock, just right for Takayama.

Really convenient place to discover Takayama, as pretty much everything is by foot distance! For the room, it was really comfy, clean and warm. It was also easy and convenient to use the kitchen and it was a nice was to meet new people there.
