Loved my stay! Good location, next to Gekkoji station. The hostel is great, I would have loved to stay in one of the Japanese-style rooms (fully booked), but the other dorms are excellent, with curtains for every bed that ensure a good night sleep. It's true there is no common room in the usual sense, but it's replace by the the owner's pub downstairs: first night I was there I had a beer with a fellow traveler and had a good night with the owner and some locals. Spot-on on everything Michael!
Enjoyed staying there very much! Will surely stay here again if i come back to Mount Fuji!
Really good stay, nice place and the lakes around Mount Fuji are beautiful

Great hostel. Michael and the staff are brilliant and knowledgable about the local area and Fuji. Really recommend a stay here.
Very nice place for the money. Good location get to Mount Fuji. Close to a train station and bus stop. Food in the restaurant is excellent.
The place was easy to find. Our luck with the weather wasn't good but the hostel was good but alittle small. though we knew that before getting there. We would stay again and have another go at Mt Fuji
This is the best hostel I've stayed in in terms of comfort/cleanliness and organisation. I really enjoyed it, it was just what I needed after hiking Fuji. The beds are great, everything is so well set out. Free coffee/tea, and the ladies at the front desk helped me out so much, translating heaps of stuff for me to go to the chemist. It's in a quiet town, but there's a really good traditional restaurant directly across the road. I would stay here again if I was in the area
This is a very clean,comfortable and friendly hostel,within easy walking distance of the train station. Michael's bar downstairs also had a great vibe. I would definitely recommend a stay here.
The hostel is well located, just a five minute walk down from Gekkoji station, with a very nice restaurant directly across the road and a bar (run by the hostel owner) downstairs. The rooms are small but comfortable. There is a mini-kitchen area and laundry services and a communal bathroom section. The staff were very friendly and helpful for tourist information ad there is a wall of ideas and brochures, with an accurate timetable for the trains. If you're planning a visit to Mt Fuji, stay here
Good hostel. Very quiet as I had the whole dorm to myself but I guess I just visited at a quiet time of year. I would stay here again.
Cool hostel with a fun themed bar downstairs. Michael was a great host, was good for a chat and was down for a few drinks! As is the case with many hostels, Michael's page seems to be riddled with negative reviews from idiots who booked without actually reading about the hostel's facilities, location etc. Which is a shame! All round was a great stay, Mt. Fuji was a highlight of our trip.

It is a small but well kept and well run hostel. The rooms and facilities were very clean, the staff was friendly, and the lockers and beds were good. Everything was standard or better. Its location was good for going to Fuji Ku Highland amusement park, and you could see Mount Fuji from the town.
Good place for seeing Mt Fuji/lakes, stayed 2 nights, not much else to do so 3 nights would be too much. Space was a little tight and poor ventilation/too enclosed but overall, good facilities, location and staff. Fair internet. Somewhat clean.
Cold unless heat is cranked up and dorm rooms are closed, wi-fi is horrible, 2 showers for 30 beds, no kitchen, no comfortable place to eat, very small dorms. Close to grocer, clerks are helpful for information. Sick people should be made to book private rooms, not put in with everyone else to make them sick too. Won't stay there again when I come back to climb Mt. Fuji.
One of the best hostel i ever stayed! Keep up the good work! I really like the room and the cleanliness level is awesome!
Amazingly friendly Staffel, Michael can tell you everything about japanese culture and how to solve travelling disasters and evrything in between :) also it s the comfiest place you can wish for esecially if mt. Fuji decides to hide in the clouds.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Very helpful staff, unbelievably clean. Owner is super friendly and has a great bar attached to the place. Only downside is you can hear the bar downstairs through the floor when it gets loud.
It's the worst place if the wheather is bad but possibly good located when wheather is good. Strongly depends ob the people there.
