The hostel used to be a day-labourers dormitory town and had become a backward area
after the economic recession in the nineties.
Our project aims to transform the Kotobuki district from being dependent on social insurance
into a productive district that can even contribute economically.

Through our hostel visitors we intend to communicate our policy and projects for the revitalization of the Kotobuki district to people all over the world.

**about Room**
Explanation of Plan for two people
The room is just the right amount of space for one.( 1 or 2 people can stay in a room.
With a surprisingly circumscribed and snug space, are you prepared to stay over with your counterpart?! This is the duo challenger plan!

The room is just the right amount of space for one. Two can stay, but it really is a small room... Up until now numerous friends, couples, families, and others have had fun, been surprised, and angered while they challenged themselves to stay at this room. Some even deepened their bonds through their experience! Yokohama Hostel Village (YHV) challenges you to our surprisingly small room! Achieve such a task and be certified a challenger as well as a great memory to look back on!

Welcome challengers, why dont you try yourselves to our amazingly small room!
Challengers Objective!!
-To sleep together in the room. (Withstand your partner snoring! In fact, there is no escape from it in such space! There isnt even enough space to place your baggage! Well safekeep it at the front desk!)
-Be surprised at the confines, and not grumble. Just laugh!
-To share and note your experiences to the next challengers!
-To take pictures of yourselves, and upload it at your blogs and homepages!
-To spread word of how indeed the room was small at our homepage forum! (Dont be a sore loser!)

For those that have safely completed their challenge, along with certification, you will have gone through a valuable and personal experience to the extent of how small a Japanese room can be.
Now, what are you waiting for? Why not challenge it yourself?

Friends, couples, families
Have had fun, been surprised, noted the limited space, and enjoyed their stay.
Indeed, many reactions have been observed.
Regardless, we congratulate such customers!

Even as of now, we have several challengers.
We see how they walk out to the neighboring Chinatown with smiles on their faces.
We wonder whether it is really that fun.
We note how it seems that people get closer to each other as the day goes by.
We concluded how it must be because that the small confine of the room that encourages bonding, whether it be through more communication and interaction.

So, we wait for more brave challengers to make their reservation to Yokohama Hostel Village (YHV)!

    The place has exceeded my expectation for its price and location. You can rent a bike and go anywhere. The private room with refridgerator and ac is great. The dormitory atmosphere is compensated by careful maintainance and management of the public space (the shares bath and a simple kitchen). A roof garden where you can hang your clothes and overlook the highway and the canal is fantastic. I also enjoy the serenity of the neighborhood and would like to come back next time.

    Good place near where we worked which is obansashi Hall. Large rooftop smoking area which is important for us. No heating in the toilet though.

    The room looked much bigger in the pictures. More suited to one person rather than 2 as the futons provided didn’t even fit side by side. Which is ok if your a couple, but not if your just mates. In the building with the rooms the communal areas are tired, not well looked after and in need of renovation. Didn’t seen any cleaning staff during outlets visit and wasn’t as clean as other places we stayed while visiting Japan. The reception and lounge were comfortable and the staff lovely.

    The rooms are very old and humid, smell very bad. Six floors without lift. The toilets are OK but the howl building smells bad. The kitchen is less then minimal. I was happy that I didn't have to spend more than one night there. Compare to the other hostels I have been in in Japan it's really disappointing for the price, even if it's not worse than the avarage hostel you'll find in Europe for the same price to have a single room.

    Stayed here to visit a friend in Yokohama but left it late to book. Basic facilities in a poor location. Staff were friendly. Value for money is not great.

    The rooms are pretty grubby and located across the street from the office - I may have been the only visitor during the time, as all the other guests I saw were Japanese who appeared to be living in the hostel during the tourist-quiet winter months. They smoked in the corridor which was a bit smelly. The wifi didn't reach my bedroom, which wasn't very good. The atmosphere during summer might be nice when there are some other guests as there is a nice roof garden. Poor area and overpriced.

    The building is old, the rooms are Ok, the neighborhood at night is not that nice, and the main desk is at front and closed by case you need something and they don’t take credit card! Not a good option!
