    This might have been the best hostel I have ever stayed in, regardless of country. Clean, efficiently layout, organized, and helpful staff. I loved that there was a floor only for women - accessible only to women via keycard. Would highly recommend to female travelers!

    Fantastic hostel in a lovely location. Very modern feel, very clean, great amenities. Staff were incredibly helpful with questions about the local area and recommendations, and also ran a few tours and cooking activities for those who wanted to join in. Buffet breakfast was lovely, especially as not many places nearby open before 10am. Building was very secure with keycard only access in several areas. I also noticed a women's only floor.

    Great location. Friendly staff. Clean bathrooms. My only issue was that the bunks are like deep and narrow caves with NO ventilation. I have lived in other hostels in Japan and I know for a fact that it's not the norm. One has to struggle to get in, get out and stay in the cave.

    I found snot smeared all over the walls in the room we stayed in, and the toilet smelled very bad all the time, but otherwise was a good hostel

    Great location, exactly where you want to be, and the staff are super friendly and helpful, I really appreciated them! However, the lower floor where the 100 numbered mixed dorm room is smelt so incredibly bad that I had to hold my breath whenever I was walking down the corridor - it was really gross. The dorm room was also a bit dank but okay, it was really just the corridor and bathroom smell that were a problem. Upper levels don’t have that problem so perhaps it is something they will fix.
