    One of the best hostels I have stayed at in Japan! In a country where rules can often dictate, the staff at bird hostel are warm and welcoming, extremely helpful, and always available. Beds are very comfortable, and facilities are immaculate. You will not regret your stay here. Breakfast is included!

    My phone broke down just before arriving. The staff was very helpful and they were kind enough to receive and pay (I gave them the money beforehand) for the delivery of a new one when I couldn't find what i needed in a store.

    So far my most favourite hostel in Japan. I have super pleasant memories from this hostel. For the amount i spent they had a lot of facilities! They're even at a very good location and close to a station. Even the staff was super helpful. Hope to visit them soon. Thanks a lot for your hospitality.

    Bird hostel was great. Close to a train station (though not a JR line) and right near the imperial palace. It was pretty bright in the rooms though unfortunately but they were kind enough to offer to move us to a bottom bunk when they freed up. There was also a really good free breakfast!

    The stay was just as nice as the last one. They offered a New Year's Eve night out for the guests if they wanted, and stocked New Year's themed food for their complimentary breakfast. A nice touch, and the staff were incredibly friendly.

    Very nice hostel, we were a couple and the beds are still quite private even if in dorms. You get your own little nook of two bunk beds, might be awkward if travelling alone though. The staff is super nice and helpful! We were there during new year's Eve and they took us and other people from the hostel on a tour at night, we ended up all partying together and had an awesome time! Great location, right next to marutamachi station. Thank you 🙏🙏

    Lovely little hostel in a good location. Staff were very friendly and the place was immaculate. The dorm room was a bit cold as I was by the window but it was fine. Shower is amazing really hot and powerful, they also have laundry facilities which is great. The free breakfast was AMAZING and the home made bread was a highlight, as well as the coffee! Thank you!
