My 2nd time staying with this hostel. It's quite a distance from JR station & town but near to Kuramae Subway Station. Rooms for mixed dorms are a bit small and no curtain for privacy. But facilities are good & hostel is clean. Staffs are friendly too. I suggest you exit from Exit A6 (Kuramae station on Oedo subway) to get to the hostel. It has an escalator going up (up only) to ground level and is very close to the hostel. When going to Narita airport, use Exit A5 which has the elevator.

Quite near to Kyoto station, clean hostel, good facilities (kitchen & common area) and friendly staffs. Not much of an atmosphere but it's ok~ Rooms are small but I like the fact that they have curtains for some privacy.

The hostel is in an old cozy house. Great location - near to Himeji castle and easy to get to from Himeji station. Interesting atmosphere with nice cozy bar cum dining area. Quite clean with good shower facilities & friendly staffs. Everyone must be out by 10am as there will not be no staff in the hostel. Oh, when making your way there, don't bother looking out for Mr Donuts. Just keep walking up north from Miyuki Dori (Miyuki Street), and you will eventually find it.

Quite far from the stations and not that easy to get to. But once you are familiar with the area, it's ok. Facilities are great! I love the big kitchen and common area. They have a bar cum info/game room which holds live performances and provides good info for travel in Tokyo~ Rooms are a little small (stayed in the dorm) and without curtain for privacy but are clean. Has a lift too~

Great location very near to the subway station. Lovely atmosphere especially the lounge where you can relax and meet people from all over the world. Awesome hostel considering it's in congested Tokyo~

Nevermind the tiny rooms and common areas (it's Tokyo mind you), I simply love the location and cleaniness. But if you're carrying quite a lot of stuffs with you, climbing the steep stairs might be quite tough.

The location was awesome though the hostel might not be easy to find initially. Staffs can be rather rigid but were generally helpful and friendly. The room, common areas, washrooms were very clean. The only thing I really dislike - there was no lift so I had to carry my staffs up 2 flights of stairs. Nevertheless, the hostel was cheap and good. Will definately stay there again.

It might not be easy to find it but once you know your way, it's easy to move around Tokyo. Most importantly it's clean and the staffs are nice! Thanks for keeping my lost item for me until I return to get it!
