A really cool and homey hostel where i have stayed. The owner and the staff have been with great hospitality and they offer really good breakfast for a small amount of money. It is a traditional japanese style house and the owner seems to be a great reader with a great collection of comics and books. Hes also a jazz lover. The location is not close to the busy touristy area which is perfect. Some people might find it a bit far away tho. Its only 15 mins walk to the famous river.
Spent a couple nights here with my husband as we did some late-season skiing/snowboarding in the area. This was a REALLY fun hostel and a very memorable part of our trip. The staff are super nice and took really good care of us, the hostel pets were fun to play with, the bunks are thoughtfully kitted out for backpackers, the facilities are fascinating and can easily provide days of entertainment if you never left them. My husband says that of all the hostels he's stayed in, this is his favorite!
