If you are in Japan then look nowhere else than the K's house chain. You will not get better
I have travelled the world and stayed in some fantastic hostels. This was by far the best. The staff here are wonderful and truly make the experience of staying here even better. Along with all the K's house chain...You won't find a better hostel in Japan.
I have traveled the world and this was a good hostel to stay in. Good location and an easy shuttle tram ride to either downtown or northwards - cost $1.25. Also can catch it to the local greyhound bus station, and $4.50 to and from the airport - rather than $27 shuttle bus. Staff was very helpful and the place had a nice feel to it - just as hostels should do. Area is safe, security is good and its CHEAP!. I stayed here on 3 separate occasions as traveling the States and had not one complaint!
