The sleeping compartments were great. More privacy that most hostels. The location was within walking distance of most of the city. The facilities were not as clean as any other Japanese hostel that I've stayed at, but were still cleaner than most European/Asian hostels.


We feel like the staff doesn't really care what was happening in the hostel or who was there, nor how their customers feel or what they need. Personally, we think that for the same price you might find places whit a more friendly and warm atmosphere. Beside this, the capsules look like a bit old and sloppy. However, they were big enough and quite private with the curtains. The showers were in the ground floor, near the entrance to the hostel, which is not really pleasant, but they were clean.


The staff members are very kind and friendly.


Pretty decent hostel, a little old and rustic but really convenient area. The bedding was clean and seemed pretty new, but the bottom bunk mattress was way too soft for me which made it difficult to sleep well. The light fixture in our room was an exposed light bulb hanging from the ceiling which didn't seem entirely safe. Good for an overnighter at least, though!


Great place to stay for a quick overnight. They have bike hire and are very friendly. Room was all we needed, would stay here again.


Very friendly and hospitable staff. Gave me some helpful advice regarding transport and food options. Very kind and welcoming. I highly recommend this place for its location, cleanliness, and staff!
