Location not bad, less than 10 minutes via trains to Namba, and only 1 stop from Tennouji. No lockers to lock valuables though? Nice common area though, relatively easy to meet people.
Very nice hostel - the facilities and rooms are larger and nicer than it's sister hostel in Asakusabashi, and the location is surrounded by a number of very nice restaurants - you won't be wanting for good restaurants to eat near this hostel!
Well located very close to the main Hiroshima station, beds are comfortable and the rooms relatively spacious. However, there are only 3 shared showers between 4 floors of guests and only 2 shared toilets. I didn't have a problem of having to wait but I was only there for one night, I could see this becoming a problem during busier times/staying here for longer.
Very clean, with very good facilities and a large common room and bar. Rooms are quite large and beds are comfortable, and the showers are good. Met some pretty cool people here as well, and there's even a vending machine in the next building for beer, so you don't even have to find the nearest konbini!
Good location near Asakusabashi station, one stop/20mins walk from Akihabara station on the circular train line around Tokyo. Despite being on the opposite side to popular nightlife areas like Shinjuku, Shibuya, Roppongi etc., I never had a problem having a good night. Also, there's no curfew! I met some great people during my time here, both staying at the hostel and as a result of nights with people at the hostel, so I really think this hostel has been key to my experience in Japan!
Nice hostel and location, the manager speaks about 5 languages! We decided to spend our time here on Olkhon Island rather than in the city, and organised the minibus and accommodation through this hostel, which was really good actually. 3 meals a day provided, hot showers etc. I would recommend this over Nikita's as you get homemade Russian food from Olga, and in the evenings you can pop over to Nikita's and go to the bar etc there.
Directions to the hostel could be improved considerably as it is not entirely clear exactly where the building the hostel is in is, and it's quite a small hostel without a lot of space in the common area, which doubles as a kitchen. The staff are nice, although only one guy speaks good English there, and one girl also speaks some English. Also not a huge amount to do in the city.
Had an amazing stay at this hostel, the staff are amazing and so friendly and helpful! The location is amazing, a 10 minute walk from the Kremlin and 5 minutes from a supermarket, the facilities are great, especially the kitchen and the people are amazing!
