    Such a friendly hostel! Everything was so clean and the staff were incredibly helpful and kind! The common area was great and all the services offered e.g. laundry were really good value. Wish we could have spent longer here as we felt so at home! Really great location so close to the station which connects directly to the main Aomori station and also to attractions like Matsushima bay. Definitely will be back to Umebachi! :)

    Holy cow!! Best hostel ever!! The staff are incredibly friendly, the hosts are very kind, and the other guests are the best!! This guesthouse is so good a TV crew came to interview us on the second day I stayed, and it's so good, I'm staying there again in 2 days!! Love love love this place!! If you want to have dinner with the other guests it's 700円, 500円 to wash & dry your clothes, and they have an amazing selection of alcohol for when you want to drink with your fellow bunkmates.Love UMEBACHI

    This is a wonderful hostel. The people are very friendly and the place is nice and clean. They offer a set meal dinner every night for ¥700 that focuses on fresh and local foods and is always delicious. They also have beer and liquor for sale, but let you bring in your own if you prefer. I definitely recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Sendai.

    Amazing staff and host, very friendly, casual and social atmosphere. Highly recommended eating diner with the staff, was well worth the small cost for the very good diner cooked by the is it and staff themselves, it's a very fun and social night. They were very good at including us into conversation and helping us plan our next move. Especially Naoki, he helped us decide what to see next and where to go, and even reccomened some hostels nearby to stay at.

    Out of all the places I've stayed in while in Japan this was by far the best/my favourite. The location is okay, with a short 5 minute walk to the station and a few stations away from most places you'd want to visit. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. The rooms themselves as well as the common area were kept clean and tidy, and the atmosphere was great. I recommend you stay for a home-cooked dinner as they were delicious. I really REALLY enjoyed my stay here.

    Lovely people run this business! I had a great time with employees and owner alike and there was much community in the few days I stayed. The food that is prepared by the owner for a small price (usually around 800¥) is professional and to die for! The hostel isn't in a exiting neighborhood but the train station is close and it is easy to access the city centre as well as sightseeing spots from there. Very cozy place, totally recommend!

    The staff are very nice & eager to help. Only thin boards between the 3 rooms, & the room next to the kitchen. Doors & whispers make noise. So they have many many rules. Last shower 22.30. Lights out & quiet at 11pm is ok, until 8am is the hardest. The only trains we could reserve was 6.40am. We had to leave at 6. The other guests complained since there were 10 of us. I hope they can renovate & make the rooms more soundproof. Thanks Keiko for taking care of our laundry & luggage.

    Uncomfortable bedding situation, also overpriced for what you get. Breakfast is a couple pieces of bread, and after not sleeping all night because of guests waking up early and the hard beds, I was refused to be given breakfast after being 45 mins late to it. You can stay for free in Sendai with Kodo, much better stay, find him on Couchsurfer!
