    The kitchen is the worst I have ever seen at a Hostel in Japan, the external walls are so thin it sounded like trucks were driving through the bedroom early in the morning and the bedrooms are so tiny the only place to put my luggage was blocking the door. However, if you only want to use this as a place to crash (not meet people or hang out) it's fine.
