Our overall stay was very nice, everything clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. The location is just great - 15 mins walk to the center/Brighton Pier or Pavilion, around the corner of an abundance of shops, delis, supermarkets and so on! The only sad thing is that the well equipped kitchen in the cellar smells almost unbearably moldy, as do the two niches in which you are supposed to eat (and where you can spot the mold in places). I did not really want to eat there, despite everything
The beautiful fotographs dont lie. When we came to the "hostel", we found out it was a real Japanese Ryokan (traditional hotel) in the middle of Nagoya city. An oasis, and a cheap one at that. The dorm room for 6 was roomy and very clean as the rest of the buildings and facilities and the futon the fluffiest I ever slept in! The host speaks English but was greatful for our Japanese. They provide you with tips and you can walk to Nagoya castle in only 15 min.
Very stylish hostel with motivated, very friendly staff. The croissants in the morning were wonderful. Everything is very clean, despite the very cool shabby chic indoor design. ;) Our room was maybe a little too small, because we could hardly open our suitcase and were happy to have left the other one in Kyôto, but comfy nonetheless. Nui Hostel is located 15 min. by walk from Sensôji in Asakusa and about 20 mins. from Akihabara. Very convenient. The metro stations are also close by.
When you want to stay in an authentic Japanese town house, complete with cold in winter and heat in summer - this is your choice! Personally, I loved it, but I don't have high expectations, no problem with one shower per gender and staff who speaks hardly any English. But there were people staying there with no Japanese knowledge and they had no problem either. We had dinner together. It was brilliant! There are no locks, only open doors. Nothing was stolen of course!
