This is an amazing hostel with great, helpful staff and a healthy breakfast. The location ist perfectly close to everything. Although the stairs to the hostel are really dirty, the hostel is perfectly clean and nicely furnitured. The facilities are seem to be really new and they have quite a beautiful rooftopterrace. I highly recommend this place and I have seen a lot of hostels in the last six months.
Beautiful hostel with really nice offers like the most well sorted library I've ever seen in a hostel. Nice common area, good food of different types, helpful staff. There are hostels which are located directly in the old town beside the bars and cafés. Compared to them the location of the Jade Emu with a five-minute-walk to the old town is just ok. However especially the single rooms are exremely cheap and lovely furnitured. I would definitively recommend this place.
pro: really cool bar in the basement; good location, nice staff; con: only one western toilet for all the dorms, the locks of the showers didn't work anymore. So you had to trust the other guests, what worked out quite well.
Best hostel i've stayed so far on my five-month-trip. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They have really good bunkbeds which give you privatsphere through their curtains and are so constructed that you almost don't recognize the person who is sleeping above or below you. I loved the beautiful Café on the first floor. And the location is great because it's close to the famous district gion.
The only problem was the temperature in my dorm. It was just too cold outside to offer only two or three hours heating-time in the morning and the evening.
