We were quite dissapointed with this hostel, we've been travelling around the UK staying at different hostels and so far this one has been the saddest. The place just felt run down and uncared for. The EFTPOS machine was broken, so they only took cash, they have no laundry facilites even though they advertised it (the nearest laundromat is 15 minutes away), the lockers in the rooms had broken back walls so they weren't secure and the place wasn't regularly cleaned. Also, 80p if you want tea...

It's a good backpackers. All the staff were easy to get along with. The beds were good and facilities were interesting, which gave the place character. Being right in the heart of the old town was fantastic, and it's very close to the train station.

This place was very much so your typical hostel, smelt sort of funny and was very cheap. But for a couple of nights on a budget it's worth it as the location is great and there's free wifi.

Really nice place to stay this one. More traditional style of things and they've got a little bar/restaurant attached. It's a little ways out of Kamakura but it's actually quite close to the Great Buddha and you can hire bikes from them for like 500yen a day so getting around was great, and they've got free wifi!

Amazing location and you can see the mountain from the window! Traditional style rooms and food if you want to pay a little bit extra, overall a good spot to stay.

Didn't realise when we booked, but this was a capsule hotel. Second one we had been to and this one was actually really good. All of the common areas were very clean and tidy and on one floor there was a whole section devoted to manga and there were free massage chairs you could read in. Plus there was a breakfast included in the price, was a good nights stay.

Amazing location for seeing the island, less than a 5 minute walk to the ferry, bus and train terminals. Fun friendly staff but it is a backpackers, and by that I mean it has dorm rooms, timed showers and shared bathrooms, but hey, that's half the fun. Oh, free wi-fi here.

This was our favourite place of the whole trip, so much character and fun! It's a 20 minute walk from the train station but there are frequent buses that take you very close, and once you're there you're close to the castle and to many other sightseeing areas. There's free wifi and the showers are hot! But the owner and the other guests really made the place that much more enjoyable. The owner showed us all the best places to go and recommended some fantastic eateries, this place was grand.

Really high quality backpackers, but I felt like I could have been in any major city in the world. Didn't feel like I was in Japan. Location, facilities and value for money you can't go past it. Free wifi here!

This place oozed backpackers, the majority of people there were Aussies and it had that backpacker smell. Had a fun bar attached and was in a great location. If you're here to hit the slopes then this place is perfect. Free wifi included xD

This place was a bit of a trek out of Nikko, but once you got there it had a beautiful location in the mountain area, they do have another location that is very close to the train station, but we didn't stay there. The owners were very lovely and gave us a ride to the train station when we were leaving so that was grand. Free wifi here!

Loved this place, was really cute and was run by a lovely Japanese couple. Location wise it was amazingly convenient and the place itself was warm, clean and friendly. Would highly recommend, also had some of the fastest and most stable wifi we used the whole trip.

This was our first capsule hotel and to be honest, there are better ones. This one was a little bit old and could use a bit of repair work or at least a new paint-job.
