Saint James Backpackers

London, England

Showers were a bit cramped, no air con in the room (making sleeping somewhat problematic due to how hot it was on the day) and the floors were creaking all over the place. Breakfast was very basic. Would stay again in a pinch, but not again if something else is available in the area.


An absolute gem of a place if you're looking for an affordable ryokan in the area. A comfortable traditional-style room and a natural hot spring bath is an ideal way to unwind after a day of exploring. Highly recommend going for the optional breakfast as well, to complete the authentic experience. The staff may not speak English very well, but that shouldn't be a problem if you know what to expect and/or understand a bit of Japanese. Incredible little place, would definitely book again.


Tokyo, Japan

A very nice place if you're after a ryokan experience in the centre of Tokyo at an affordable price. Quiet and comfortable, with multiple baths available to help you relax after a day of walking around. Traditional breakfast option is available that I believe is well worth the extra cost.


Very enjoyable and convenient place to stay. The room was spacious, the bathroom clean and the beds comfortable. The staff gave great advice about local places to visit and things to do. Would stay at the hostel again.

A nice hostel in a convenient location. The room was clean and cozy, the staff friendly and accommodating. Would stay again.


Brilliant place to stay with helpful staff and excellent facilities. Special thanks for the shoe dryers that came in quite handy after a sudden downpour left me soaked. Enjoyed my stay throughout and would definitely book again.
