Very difficult to find. No sign on street or even on hostel itself, other than in Japanese.It's on a lane between between two streets. The extra room, which is the owner's house, is on a lane off that lane. Washing and Japanese toilet facilities are shared with him. Electricity wires everywhere - very dangerous. Hostel accommodation tiny, even by Japanese standards. New toilet and shower are fine but the communal area is about 2 metres squared. Too cramped and cluttered. Find somewhere else.
This Minshhuku is 15 mins walk from the station. This means that it is in a peaceful area and we had the sound of the river outside our window. The owner is very welcoming. He will drive his guests to a local onsen, in the forest, each evening. That was a wonderful experience. The restaurant he recommended was not such a success but we really enjoyed our stay there and wholeheartedly recommend it. You will have a flavour of real Japanese living. Our room was large and comfortable. Great choice!
Excellent hostel in great location. Close to public transport and lovely area for sight-seeing and shopping. Near the best cherry-blossom river walk in Tokyo. The staff were superb and we loved the bar/common area, where you could just chill, or eat/drink. The bathing facilities are excellent. More hooks in the bathrooms and the dorms would have been welcome, but that is a very minor quibble. Thanks!
Good, convenient hostel. Free wifi, good kitchen, lovely staff. Small with steep stairs but that adds to the character.
This was my second stay here. Great location and very easy place to stay. Very helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Secure lockers for valuables. Generally a great place to stay in Vienna.
Great hostel. Very good location; clean; secure. Being one of the most modern ones there is no members' kitchen and not even somewhere to make a cup of tea. That's a shame though I can understand it. You can also leave your luggage here for 2 pounds which further enhances the convenience factor. I always stay here when in London.
Fascinating building, very quirky, lots of narrow steep stairs. Nice and warm indoors when it was very cold outside. No single-sex dorms which is always a problem for me. I had the single en-suite room - lovely but the specially-made bed was almost too high for me to climb into - I am not young or tall! As another reviewer said, the requirement to have photo ID at check-in should be flagged up in advance. As should the charge for credit cards and that they don't take cheques. Weird!
Smashing hostel - I always stay here when I am in London - excellent value for money and it feels really safe too. Good pubs on either side - for dinner as well as a drink.

Great location - excellent value for central London. I always stay there.
Great setting. Wonderful value for money in Stockholm. Very easy to get to and very characterful! A real experience too. It's posher than most hostels but has a good kitchen. Almost no social life, but there is plenty of that a few metro stops away.
The hostel was quite cold, and I am not usually cold. Good internet access, which is also free. No female dorm though they say that this could be arranged but how can you do that through an online booking?
Location good. I met lots of really interesting people in this hostel. Nice kitchen which lends itself to being sociable.
Lovely hostel with excellent facilities. Nice to have the option of female dorms. Thanks for a safe and restful stay amid travel problems.
Best hostel I've ever stayed in! Beside bus and train station, great staff, outside eating area, lovely kitchen, single-sex dorms available. Thanks for a great stay. You have a wonderful hostel!
Best hostel ever!
Noise levels unacceptable. Staff wonderful. Long-term students should have own dorms. Hostel needs major renovation.
Nice breakfast cafe!
Wonderful building and location; great staff; free wi-fi is appreciated. Very clean and newly decorated. It feels a bit odd, though, because it is empty except for the bunks. Some places to hang things would be hepful, and more space than the tiny cage under the bed. A kitchen would be great too. So, it's very different, but I recommend it highly.
Great hostel - probably the best and this is the second time I've stayed here.
Great location, very clean, lovely hostel. I like that there are female dorms. I would like a kitchen but we can't have everything.
They seem to be renovating this old hostel, which will make it much nicer. Currently it is a bit unattractive but with a nice common area, though the kitchen is on a separate floor. No female dorms. Good location, very close to the Metro.
Great, small and friendly hostel in very good location. Lovely breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. They have a female dorm which is becoming important to me. Great showers too.
Great value for money, excellent location. No female dorms, sadly. Well worth a visit as this is a lovely town. Ignore the wrong directions from the rail station and take a taxi - costs under 10 Pln.
Nice hostel - great location, just by old town. Helpful staff - thanks. Good little kitchen. Hostel can be noisy but that's because of it's location. Directions from rail station are confused - should say OP as well as OL. Directions back to station confused too. This is starting to be a pattern with hostels. I recommend it, though I don't like all dorms being mixed.
Lovely place and great staff. I would have appreciated a small kitchen for making tea, but otherwise it was perfect.
The total lack of privacy us a real issue in this hostel - all dorms and bathroom areas are mixed and the sinks and washhand basins are in the corridors. It is also very cold at night and the one blanket provided would not have been enough but I had my thermals so was OK. The communal area is a window-less space with only a kettle and some crockery. Very poor.
Great but I missed having a members' kitchen.
Old hostel but well located. Now that there is a new YHA one nearer to the train stations, I don't stay here, but it was fine when I did.
