    One of my favourite hostels I stayed at whilst I was in Japan! Super tidy hostel with towels included in your stay. Breakfast was fairly cheap with it costing 900 yen. Also fairly good location, very easily accessible near Gora station. Would totally recommend to any solo traveller.

    Hands down a wonderful hostel to stay at! The facility is very modern and clean and it was right across the street from the Gora train station which was convenient! Staff was very nice and helpful and I wish I stayed here for more than just one night. I love that they had a bar and a dinner menu especially since everything in Hakone closes pretty early and I loved the onsen they had!

    As far as hostels go this one is pretty amazing; it looks very nice, the beds are comfortable, there was a massage chair in the room and an onsen that you can use for free. If I had one criticism it was that the bar was too expensive, but it was similar to other prices in hakone which I guess explains/justifies it. I would definitely stay again.

    This place was perfect for the night. We stayed in a mix dormitory and it was clean and the staff were extremely helpful when I was asking for advise and directions around town. Sadly, due to the typhoon that hit, we were unable to use the onsen.

    Lovely place with a cool atmosphere and really nice amenities. I wish we were able to stay longer. Clean and comfortable room and the onsen was great. The town (Gora) was another windy 45 min train ride from the main town of Hakone, but once you get to the Gora station, Emblem Flow is super close. The bar/cafe had kind of odd hours/restrictions - like you could only get a coffee between 2-5pm or something (not in the morning), and then only beer and wine (no full bar) during happy hour.

    Another great hostel in Japan. Located right next to Gora station, a little bit of a hike to get down to the city but still easy. Staff is very kind and helpful. On-site restaurant is great. The onset is the highlight of this hostel, very relaxing. Definitely recommend trying the Onsen.

    Great rooms and the Onsen is fantastic to have directly in the facilities. Staff wasn’t overly familiar with the attractions in the area, but were very friendly and helpful! Located right next to Gora station. Lake Ashi is approx 45-mins away by train and bus. This hostel is not in Hakone proper but in the small town of Gora.

    Stayed for a few nights and enjoyed it. Staff were friendly, space was clean, and was close to the places I wanted to visit in Hakone.
