2 min walking from JR Station, 1 min walking from the bus station. The staff is simply GREAT! They're really friendly and you feel like at home. I definitely recommend this accommodation!

This is a real capsule hotel, so you don't have to be claustrophobic. It's quite strange that no tattoos are accepted. Perfect location, you're right in the heart of Shinjuku. Good to have the onsen on the top to relax before the night, even with two different saunas. I can just recommend to spend one night, just to try... It's a funny experience that you'll never forget!

J-Hoppers Hiroshima Guesthouse, Hiroshima, Japan

28th Sep 2013

Is how a backpackers accommodation should be. Friendly staff with a very good English speaking, perfect location to get to the Peace Memorial Park and the A-Bomb Dome (2 min walking from the park, 5 min from the Dome), lots of tipical restaurant around the hostel and the staff is always happy to give you suggestion of where to go for your meals. Even if you wanna go to Miyajima with public transportation J-Hoppers is the perfect location, very well served by trams. I've meet lost of friends!

Whoooa!!! The best guesthouse where I've been in over 10 years!! The staff is really friendly and helpful, the dorms are quite big and the beds are really comfy. What about cleanliness? Much more clean than my house!! Everything it's soooo shiny! 4 stops by bus from the JR Station, 2 minutes walking from Nara Park... This is the place to be in Nara!!

I spent here just one night, waiting for the Yangtze River Cruise. Nice hostel, close to the piers. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The dorms are quite small, but is the Chinese standard.

The staff is really great! A perfect hostel, 5 steps far from the subway, nice and clean rooms, comfy common areas, very good food (but if you like spicy, ask for the real Sichuanese spicy... otherwise they adapt the spicy level for western!). If I'll return back in Chengdu, LazyBones will be my home again!

I had great time here! Bob is the perfect manager, he spent lots of time to help me in organizing my next transportation: during the Dragon Boat festival every train and bus were completely booked, but he found me a seat on a bus!! If you go to Pingyao, don't miss this accommodation!!

What can I say... wow!! The hostel is awesome, 5* common areas, the bar is perfect and very stylish, and the room... it was HUGE!!! (4 bed dorm) It's not centrally located, but you got lots of buses 50mt far and the subway is 5 minutes walking.

11th May 2011

I was just looking for a bed, nothing more in Hong Kong. First I was in a private and I didn't like it so much. Then I've moved to a 6 dorm and was better, a bit more spacious (even if in 6 in the room) and a better bathroom. The staff........ it depends. If you find the girls at the reception, you don't have to worry, they very friendly and pleased to help you with any request. If you find the man............ so, good luck!! Anyway, at the end of my holiday I'll return back to Yesinn.
