My biggest qualm was only having paper plates and cups. Such a waste everyday! And horrible to eat off. Buying proper stuff would save money Surely The place was pretty grubby but did had plenty of hangout spaces. The staff acted like we were in the way mostly. Our first room was very rundown, squished bugs everywhere. Our second was nicer, newly renovated. Although the showers were often cold. There was good food available everyday, and lovely cooked breakfasts (nothing for free though!).
Very nice place. Great breakfast and good to be able to help ourselves to drinks and nibbles any time.
We had a good time at this hostel. They managed to keep the place clean despite it being Oktoberfest. The breakfast was generous. The dorm was spacious. The staff were polite but understandably busy. Downside is no guest kitchen and our lock on the door was a pain.
Clean and in a good spot. It was good to have a kitchen to use. A safe or locker would have been appreciated in the room. Doesn't have any kind of backpacker vibe or opportunity to meet people but then again it wasn't a hostel.
Had a great time, staff excellent, kitchen excellent, showers excellent.
An immaculate clean and comfortable hostel, has the features of a hotel. Lovely bathroom. Breakfast was a bit dull. Staff pleasant but not exceptional. There wasn't heaps of atmosphere but if you want somewhere comfortable it's great.
Nice clean and very organised place. Staff did their job but no extra. We had to press them a bit to get an introduction to the city and things to do. Breakfast was good. Very good location.
We had a great time at big apple, fantastic friendly staff who took us out at night, lovely cool air conditioned dorm, super clean, amazing breakfast with fruit, salad, meat, cheese, eggs. We arrived early in the morning and although we couldn't check in till later they gave us free breakfast. One of the staff also made us a delicious dinner.
This hostel was well priced, well located, had a great breakfast with fruit and fried toast. The staff were super helpful helping us arrange our ferries. There was a nice garden and our room was cute. It would have been good to have a safe or locker in the room ( though it was private so maybe not needed).
A lovely family run hostel. The staff were great, the kitchen was spotless, the terrace was nice, I loved the free beach towel, mat and umbrella hire. The rooms were air conditioned with a shower - but no toilet. Only complaint is that coffee is not included in the breakfast and it finishes at 930 which is a little early for us. Laundry is cheap too.
A small hostel with very helpful staff. They recommended pintxos places, drew us lots of maps of bilboa and the basque region, made phone calls to help us hire a car and were generally delightful. It was a while from the the centre of town but the walk in was pleasant, along the river for 20-30 mins. Breakfast had lovely strong coffee and fruit as well as the usual toast and chocolate croissants.
A lovely hostel to stay in. They are very eager to please,although I didn't like the regular reminders to submit a good review as it effected the sincerity of their niceness. Kitchen is large and clean, lovely living room and large dining room. The roof terrace is a nice feature, though the pool a little smaller than expected. Our room was very spacious. Pancakes for breakfast was a winner. The pub crawl was good fun, with a lovely leader, better than the wild walkers crew in my mind.
You must stay here! I'm quite sure it's the best hostel in the world. Impeccably clean, more elegant than most hotels, unbeatable dinner, wonderful atmosphere (all the guests can't believe their luck to be there), great staff, free laundry. It broke our hearts to leave.
We were apprahensive about the stay because of some negative reviews but we found the staff extremely helpful, they gave us lots of tips on where to eat and drink and what to do. We enjoyed our stay very much.
A lovely place to stay, and worth the slightly more expensive fees.

If you are after tranquility it's a wonderful quiet place with gardens, birdsong and views over the mountains. The staff were Wonderfully helpful with everything and helped us get around, the included breakfast was really substantial and optional home cooked dinner was delicious and very good value. We were waited on hand and foot during our stay. It's quite far from the town ( half hour or so by bus ) and was a little difficult to find on our own so organise a lift with luggage before arrival.
Nice garden but pretty far from fort Cochin which is main place of interest .
The hostel was well equipped and clean with a lovely large common room. However our bed was very uncomfortable with the springs digging into our back and the mattress sagging in the middle. It might just have been our room and being in such a central location probably made up for this flaw. We also appreciated the free internet, though I think it's standard for Japan.
We chose Jimmyz because of the reviews about how helpful and nice Jimmy himself was and we were not disappointed. Although we rocked up late, he was happy to sit down and plan our early morning journey to the airport with us, providing train timetables and advice. The hostel was in a quiet spot but it was an easy walk to the centre of Sapporo for dinner. It was also relatively small, basically a regular 2 bedroom house with the rooms as dorms which was fine for us. Also, it was nice and warm.
