An oldschool hostel, near the train station one of the easiest to find. You have to vacate between 11 and 4 everyday even if you stay here for a few nights it could be inconvenient but if you're sight seeing you'll be out anyway.

Thank you for staying with us. Yes, we are the nearest hostel from Nagano station, maybe less than 5min on foot. And we are sorry we have lockout hours from 11 to 4(soon it will be changed to 10:30am-4pm). Please enjoy sight seeing, or we can tell you cafes and libraries you can relax.


Worst hostel I've ever been to! You are forced to go sightseeing between 11-4pm but no one can really explain why. Only one shower for the entire hostel and you sleep on futons on the floor. We left our stuff there on the checkout day since we left in the evening but we weren't allowed inside the hostel anymore, we would've had to pay just to sit in the living room. Staff is weird!

Yes, we are sorry you are right. As you can see in the Web site, we have lock-out hours. And after you check out (by 11am), you can leave your luggage and pick it up later, but you are not allowed inside.


Nice place, good staff and convinent location!


Terrible place. substandard facilities. way over-priced for what it is. complete dump.


Everything is perfect except the daily closure from 11am-4pm. Guests are not allowed to stay during that period even if they prefer to rest in the hostel.


Friendly staff. Gorgeous room painted yellow with faded painting of a train. Nice and warm. Good little kitchen with access to herbs and spices. Great place to say!


Unreal place. Hosts were amazing people. Gave us free bikes for transport and maps which helped. Not only cheap way to get around but fun! One of the many highlights we have had in Japan was this place!!!


The staff are very friendly, but it didn't really feel suited to accommodating travellers. The hostel was quite cold (only the common room and bedroom are heated) and there is only one shower available. They also close the hostel from 10-4 to clean, but for one nights stop over this place is fine and the staff are great:-)


A good place to crash near the train station. I said to crash only because you must leave the hostel from 10 to 16:00.... Doesn't matter if you wanna sleep over or anything. You have to leave... Sound weird i know, but the place is clean, cozy beds, and good information in the common area. The owners are really nice and give good advices


This place would be perfect if the bathroom on our floor was working. Everything else was excellent!


Staff extremely helpful, cheers!
