Little out of town butquick by metro.nice neighbourhood.
No key to door but theu did open up evetytime quickly but that also meant the group of peace corp vols knocking at 3am and 6am woke us up!
Lots ofs broken items ie light in bedroom flickered all night...no light near computor and had to wear head lamp to see keyboard. Toilet door broken, only very hot watet in bathroom and kitchen, no cold! Only one shower for about 20 people...kitchen had good selection of equipment for cooking...staff very friendly and helpful....
Didnt get to actually sleep here because after booking and paying deposit for 7 people gor 2 nights $18US. And having this confirmed, the hostel emailed me the next day and cancelled booking saying they were over booked. Tolded me to contact hostel world to get refund. Took several emails for this to happen but now have said refund in pipeline....wad most annoyed when i visited Golden Gobi to discuss this with manager and have him laugh at me and say this wasnt his problem!
This was the rooftop overflow not the cosy inner city hostel as advertised, that only sleeps 16.this a run downapartment accross town. 7 floors, no lift! Bunks broken and nail sticking out! No handbasin, clean teeth in dirty sink. One rocking toilet and one shower for 12 plus people. One 2 seater couch in communal area, 1 pot and frypan and little else in way of kitchen utensils. The fridge stunk of rotton food. Had been open for 6 weeks but they need to do a lot of organising .
Olga was fantastic. Gave us a lovely welcome, tea and biscuits. Cosy rooms and the best breakfasts...her family was alsovrry nice...
Further from town than we thought but buses do stop outside. Dorm room noisy at night as on a busy road and smoking area right outside room on a balcony! We had confused this hostel for similar named Baikalhal hostel in town...
Easy to find, near all facilities, unfortunatly lift broken and 4 floors to climb with baggage.....only spoilt by last night group chinese students doing masses of laundry in girls toilets and leaving scum and rubbish everywhere!
Nice welcome as arrived early and could shower and snooze till midday, great location and info....
Great hostel in a lovely city, staff on front desk very friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast and vety clean bathrooms. Couldnt ask for much more in a hostel. Would def stay again. Great begining to week on the Camino Santiago.
BUNK BEDS NEEDED TIGHTENING AND BATHROOM LIGHTS GO OUT AFTER 2 MINUTES AND VERY ANNOYING, BREAKFAST OK AND STAFF VERY HELPFUL.B IT OF A WALK TO CENTRE BUT CLOSE TO BUS STATION.
Kitchen was poorly equiped and this is not the cleanest hostel in Japan, Bed noise from traffic as close to main road. Common room could do with tables for computors.
One of the best hostels in Japan, Lots of activities to do in the region and daytrips organised by them are great. Kengi the guide to waterfalls and festival afterwards was great. Will stay here again another time but for longer than 3 nights..
Kitchen and common room very small
