    I couldn’t be happier with this little hostel in Kobe. It’s a family run hostel and the owner really goes above and beyond for all of his guests and is lovely to chat to. They were very accommodating for our early check in. They provide many resources for their guests to give them the best experience in Kobe & ensure you are happy and comfortable. My friend & I stayed in the female dorm and it was very comfortable. I would love to stay again next time I’m in Kobe!

    Excellent hostel with very lovely staff. Facilities were very clean and orderly. I stayed in the women-only 4-bed room which was lovely, the bedding was very comfortable. Good location, it is easy to make it to the central downtown with regular buses every 7 minutes (bus stop is a 1 minute walk from the hostel). It is worth noting that the stairs leading upstairs to the living quarters are steep and narrow, perfectly fine for the average person but if you have mobility issues you may struggle.

    Really nice place with extremely friendly and helpful staff (I got recommended nice Kobe beef restaurant, one of the best dinners I've ever had). It is bit small, but if you want to explore the city it is more that enough. Being next to the Shinkansen station is also a big plus!

    Had a great stay. Hostel was clean and cosy. Friendly host, nice little sitting area, ideal location: close to bus stop & family mart and in a more calm side of the city that is close to the mountain & herb gardens. Thank you!
