This is a real place of character. We had a twin single room with our own bathroom. Honestly even with our aircon which seemed to do nothing, we still had a lot of fun at this place - it could have been all the Asahi we had but we enjoyed the old atmosphere of the place. It was freezing cold this night and sleeping on mats was a bit of an experience - but if you want to feel a little traditional, come and visit this place.
a cozy hostel with huge Japanese style common area, small kitchen but fully equipped.
There are only 4 hostels in Kobé. I don't know about the others, but I STRONGLY advise u to have a look at this one. 5 minutes from subway station. The place is beautiful, tastefully decorated. Dorms are nice, with private bathrooms. There is a kitchen, a Japanese living-room, a nice terrace and a café. From 3 pm to 10 pm, there is a coffee-master (very passionated guy, u'll enjoy talking with him), who'll prepare u nice coffee beverages. Atmosphere here is very cosy and relaxing. Enjoyable !
This is a lovely hostel with really great hosts. Our family (3kids between the ages of 3-7) spent 3 nights here. It is clean, comfortable and has a good kitchen and living room area. The hosts were really nice and helpful. We loved it!
The room was cold. We had air conditioning but didn't work well. The staff was friendly.
Great location and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The kitchen and common area was comfortable and enjoyable to use.
The location is near subway station but there is a short staircase in front of hostel. If you carry a large luggage, you need to be careful. The owner of hostel is very nice and the room is comfortable. Also, the common area is with both Japanese and Western styles. It looks very great.

A nice hostel a little off the central area. The staff was incredibly nice and does speak pretty good english. We even got invited for food and sake in the evening. The common room is nice and our room was quite spacious (it even had a bathtub!1!). You can get a great variety of food right next to the hostel, make sure to give the Japanese-BBQ a try! You can just ask the staffmembers for their recommendations :-)
Only fault I can think of is it's location. If you are using the JR Pass like I was, the closest JR station is Kobe Station which is about a 8minute walk. Also It's location in general is towards the west so accessing anything on the east side takes some time. Other than that this place is great, staff are extremely friendly with basic usable English. Facilities are very clean and each room gets their own Bathroom. The common area is very cosy and is equipped with a coffee / bar. Will stay again
Nice hostel with a cool cafe attached to it. Location is a bit away from the centre of Kobe - it's in the red light district.
good budget hostel at Kobe. Love the atmosphere, especially the tatami living room.
This is a great hostel to stay at - would highly recommend it. The lady who runs the place is so nice and really helpful. She's done an amazing job renovating the place. The decor is cool and the place has a very artistic feel to it. The rooms are great with nice en-suites. Easy to get to the subway stop up the road.
I stayed two nights in Yume Nomad. Firstly,I had a bit trouble finding it as it is somewhere behind all the Panchinko's. Location is pretty good though - only a two minute walk to Shinkaichi station! Staff was really,really kind and made you feel welcome. Unfortunately,it was very quiet and hardly anyone was found in the common area. Shower and toilet in the room was a big plus. Would definitely stay there again!
Very friendly staff, they shared their meal with me and printed me directions to a good place for kobe beef.
