This a wonderful place to stay is like a hotel. I strongly recommend .


I really loved this hotel - it is definitely a hotel and not a hostel. It was cheap but had full hotel facilities like towels, shampoo, very clean soft sheets, tea and a full cleaning service each day. I would just recommend to have another tea sachet- one is not quite enough. Also the English directions to the hotel is not very clear - it is not really turning right - I think better directions would be 'follow the signs to the shrine, we are just after it'


Kind of a strange hostel set inside the Ohsu Plaza Hotel. Overall a cheap place to sleep that is relatively central. Nothing too exciting, but affordable.


Strange setup. Not a hostel, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Location was good! I wouldn't mind booking here again, but I'm sure there is better the city .


I don't know why this place had so many bad reviews. The only downside to it is there is only one shower. It is good value for money and the staff were helpful.


This structure doesn't meet the requirements to be called an hostel: the place is on the che third floor of a hotel, the "mixed dorm" we slept in was previously used as a business meeting room. They simply removed chairs and tables and put some tatami and matteres on the floor (moreover my blanket had hairs on it, anyway sheets were clean). No kitchen on the floor, microwave was in reception at ground floor (of the hotel), to shower we have to use the bathroom of a different private room.


Like others have said, this isn't a hostel at all. The rooms are nice and small with TV that works and are comfy. I'd stay here again.

Staff's english were rubbish, bed was hard and there were two signs lot in the room all night. Location was brilliant though, and the city quite cozy. But there is no charm at the place, so i rather to a hostel uden to be one, than a hotel trying to..


It's not a hostel ! It's a meeting room in a hotel with mattresses on the floor. So it's uncomfortable and noisy. There is no staff, no one to give you information about the city. The bathroom is in a room, far from the "dormitory". There is no kitchen, nothing even for boiling water... Well, it's a place for sleeping if you have nowhere else to go ...


Air conditioning was weak and room needed more ventilation. Room felt stuffy even when we turned the fan to the highest power and lowest temperature.


Good locatio in the shopping area


Street sign reads 'Hotel' not 'Hostel,' this is somewhat confusing, Clean bedroom and bathroom and plenty of space in room. Staff seem nice but do not speak much English. Only 1 key for the room so the door is unlocked most of the time. Location is great in the city center. My room had a bright emergency exit sign that is lit all night, if light bothers you while sleeping this could be a problem.


The hostel was clean and well maintained with good facilities. The staff was professional and efficient. It's in a great location and easily accessible by subway. It's also close enough to some big attractions that walking is no problem.


As others have said, its a hotel, not a hostel. I think only one dorm room, but if you are Lucky you can meet some really Nice People there. Its very Close to metro station, and its a 25 min walk from Nagoya station. Loads of restaurants around there. The shower is ina different room, but its not a problem,. Very clean and not expensive.


Very kind and helpful staff, even with varying degree of english and japanese from their and our side we always managed to find a way to solve the problems that arised. The wifi was slightly unstable at times tho.

In price in dormitory should at least include breakfast


This place is in fact a hotel with one room filled with futons and turned into a 'dormitory'. Felt like an unofficial guest, had to go to another empty private room to shower. No lockers or anything you'd expect from a hostel made for dormitories. I thought I paid more than I was really getting out of it. Very intimate, not much space between people. Good for a few nights on the cheap, but otherwise don't expect too much.


Great location, love the convenience


THe place was pretty good. Shame the lights in the room don't go off. Other than that it was clean and basic. good for the price.


As other reviewsnention this is a room in a hotel. It is a good space and having a private room to retread in was nice after several months in hostels with a small shower area. No lockers though and only one key for the room.
