Hostel atmosphere was mixed. The downstairs bar was excellent and trendy. However, many of the people staying at the hostel were Japanese and not as willing to socialize. The hostel was clean but the concrete floor and the fact that shoes were allowed anywhere was quite different to all the other hostels I have visited in Japan. The location was good as far as being close to transport. However, if you are planning on going out it is quite a ways from Shinjuku and the going out areas
All good. Friendly and helpful staff. Hostel very enjoyable.
Solid hostel. Good spot, good facilities and good staff. Although I wasn't able to attend any organized events they had quite a few which is rare in the Japanese hostels. The common room area is also excellent.
Great hostel. Friendly staff. Takoyaki night is good times! Common room area is okay. Good location, heaps of stuff to do in the area.
Great hostel. Biggest negative is it is a bit far from transport. However, it is in walking distance to pretty much everything you want to do in Nagoya. Positives: clean, traditional (well seems traditional) style. Gorgeous Japanese garden. On site bath (awesome) and spacious sleeping area. Stay here. Say Hi to Hiro!
