Room was clean and warm, bit small and no lockers in rooms made things a little weird. Great lounge area and clean and tidy kitchen area. Bathrooms, great shower pressure and very tidy. Walking distance to main street, local bus stop near by, Beach roughly 15 min walk. Food outlets and Supermarket also walking distance. Owners are great, cater for all needs and assist with any day trips or local info.

Clean Hostel, Very safe area, Take the Metro to Ueno for the markets / night life. Hostel vibe was pretty boring, lots of issues with other guests drinking have ruined it for new guests. Bedding private & comfortable, private lockers in dorm rooms included. Staff were amazing, helpful with directions / ideas, taught me some basic origami and assisted me with speaking Japanese. Tokyo Metro - 10 minute walk, JR - 15 minute walk. Bottle store / supermarket - 5-10 minutes walk.

Super clean hostel. Social aspect lacks massively. Rooms are warm, great beds, personal lamp & power point. Bunks also have privacy curtains. Awesome showers and very close to tokyo subway and jr lines. Not much nightlife in the area though.

HJ is the best host. The hostel has a small home feel to it. The top floor common room is great for meeting other travelers and drinking a lot of sojui! HJ booked us on some great city tours. Its about a 5-10 min walk to the subway, about 10-15min walk to a very crazy night market. If you go to seoul please say here. Beds are great, personal locker, powerpoint and bedside lamp.

As Always Chicago Getaway Hostel is the #1 choice for stays in Chicago. Clean facilitates, great lobby area for meeting travelers. Nightly activities to local areas. Our Pub Crawl host Erica took on us on a really good night out trip to many Bars. Mat & Vinne as always looked after me during the my stay. Trip to The Burwood Tap & Kingstown Mines is not to be missed. 15 mins walk to Fullerton Red line, Clark and Halstead for shopping / eating and Chicago History Museum & the Lincoln Park Zoo.

I checked in very late and basically went straight to bed, the bunk was fine, the room was tidy, loud room mates but its a hostel, nothing more you can do. I left before Breakfast was served so didn't get a chance to eat. great location, walking distance to subway to Airport, nice Japanese Themed Bar / Eats two doors down.

We arrived late on the Friday night, But we were looked after by a very friend staff Member from Japan. He made us feel right at home and helped us out with late night food directions and entertainment. the 24 hour cafe was great and we spent a little time in the very busy bar on the Saturday. Super close to the Ferry bus stop, and a pretty decent safe part of town. We had a private room one of the smaller ones, bit of noise with the road traffic, but closed the window and it was super quite.

Hello, thank you for reviewing Ocean Island! We’re happy to hear our front desk staff made you feel at home right away, and hope your late night food hit the spot. It’s also great to know you enjoyed your private room, our Cafe and bar, and our handy downtown location. Cheers, safe and happy travels!

From the minute I walked in, Staff were amazing, I was a little early but I got shown my bed and then offered a locker for my stuff. Toilets and showers were clean, great water pressure. Bed was great, warm blankets, great mattress, firm pillows. I didn't attend any hostel activities but they had a lot going on, even the sunday night. Location was fantastic, easy to find from the Subway and again the staff just amazing with everything. If I go back to Philly, Id def stay here.

There is just something about this hostel that keeps bringing me back. So easy to meet other guests, the place is clean and tidy, great social areas, plenty of hostel based activities to do and the hostel staff are amazing. Sierra & DJ lead the coolest pub crawls and Jason and Mat are exceptional hosts. Rooms & Beds make you feel welcome along with huge lockers to store all your stuff. Close to bars to clubs, and a short walk to the nearest 'L' stop! can't wait to go back.

Great hostel, easy to find, safe area, awesome japanese food place near, great local bar next door to watch sports. Room was tiny, bed was great though, no A/C room mates, you can't pick and they were annoying. Safe were unreal, more than helpful, friendly and always had a smile Would def stay again though, just a really clean awesome place with a great location. just needs a better social aspect, had no nightly events, bit hard to meet people on your own here.

I've stayed at over 20 different hostels in as many countries and this was the best by a country mile, the service when you walk in the door is first class. The sleeping areas are quite, the lounge areas are great fun, super easy to meet other travellers, the cooking area is proper kitchen, with everything you need. Free dinner on select nights, free breakfast every morning, pub tours twice a week. easy distance to other bars and cafes also. 10/10

Looks to be a brand new hostel in a great location. Couple of things to note, no lockers in the room, not a real issue but if your put in a room with random people could be interesting. Showers, for a new hostel, 4 out of the 6 showers I took were stone cold and weak pressure... had heard other guests all say this, There was construction work going at the time so maybe this had something to do with it? Lounge area with wifi awesome, Kitchen was clean and useful, Beds comfortable

Yes, we are installing hot water circulation system so that guests do not need to wait for the hot water to travel through the pipe but have instant hot water. Thank you for your patience.

Third time staying here, this place just gets better every time. Staff are amazing, from Check in, to the Pub Crawl to being knowledgeable about Chicago. Dorm rooms are super clean, fresh towel change everyday. Kitchen is huge and everything you need is supplied. Plenty of storage space if your staying a few days for food, fridges and a freezer, stocked vending machines for snacks. WiFi is really good and excellent common area for meeting other travellers. 10/10!
