The toilet from 406 has a very bad smell. It should be verified and fixed. Other than that, the hostel is great and close to everything you might need :)

The hostel location is great. 5 mins from the JR station and the old town. The room has extra space for your luggages and other stuffs unlike other hostels. The shower room are clean. There is elevator which is plus points.

The showering facilities, while perfectly functional, are awkward and in need of an update. The whole hostel in fact seems to be a few decades old, but it's perfectly liveable. Staff are super helpful and knowledgeable, and the hostel is an easy walk from the train station and to the old town in central takayama.

We met a staff who behave like we should not stay in this hostel, and this made me feel uncomfortable in this hostel. So i didn't have great time in this hostel, and i think i would not stay any of this chain hostel at japan again.

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.

The first night we stayed there, it was very cold. A/C unit in the room didn't have any indication of having a heating option. Both nights, the rooms (we had 2 different rooms for 2 nights) smelled funky, like an old people's house that hasn't been cleaned thoroughly enough. Other than that, it is a good value for a buck, great location and friendly staff!

Sorry for not having explained the heating function of the A/C unit inside the room. And as for the smell, I think it is the natural smell of tatami room, and we understand that foreigners might not be used to this smell. You may try to stay at our western style room next time! And thanks for the nice comments!

Great place. Clean, spacious rooms, friendly staff. We did 3 nights and got a free bike rental. Good location, less than 10 minutes walk from the station. Takayama is unfortunately a bit far, it's like there's only one line through town and it takes at least a 2 hour train ride to get to any major stations. Beds were pretty creaky and the bikes were the ones with the little wheels and tall handle bar.

Thank you very much for your nice comments. Indeed, Takayama is a bit difficult to get to, but it is such a beautiful place, isn't it? We hope you will have chance to come back to stay again at another time

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.

Thank you very much for your comments. We are sorry that our common space is not as spacey as we would like it to be, and sometimes indeed it may get a bit packed if many guests are using it at the same time. And we hope to renew our facilities in the future as well.

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.
