    JGH was the sweetest and most cozy little hostel, next to the most relaxing bathhouse. The woman who runs it hangs her photos and travelers art everywhere so you can really feel and see the love put into the place. I felt like I was in spirited away or something. My friend and I couldn’t get enough of it and even booked extra days.

    The owners of this hostel are very friendly and helpful. It's a nice place to stay that is away from the bustle of the city, but close enough to walk to a train station that connects you with the rest of Tokyo. I recommend it.

    A very cool place. We got the private twin room which was traditional Japanese style with tadami mats and futon. Staff were very friendly and can understand English if you need. Facilities were also great with cutlery and crockery available as well as hot water, a microwave and more. 15 minute walk from the station which was never a problem for us 😊 Thank you for having us!

    I was not expecting much from this Hostel but I was pleasantly surprised by the pleasantness and home feel to this Hostel. Met a lot of really nice people and when I return for my 3rd trip I plan to return to this hostel for a much longer duration.

    Cheapest hostel in Tokyo, so about what you'd expect - bean bags for pillows, 3 layer bunk bed etc. Shower was very nice, all very clean but we moved further into the city (to Ikebukuro) after 1 night for only a few £ more

    A rather confusing stay. The hosts did not seem to know that we were coming, the type of room or the price. It was lucky the room was still available. We stayed only one night and were asked to pay an extra fee per person. The private room came with blankets and AC, and it was alright. However the other guests did not have working lights in their rooms, and had to pay extra for blankets. Only one sink, one shower with cold water, and not that clean, but the place is cheap after all.

    The staff were very nice and we got a home room to ourselves which was great. However, there was no security deposit box for our things and no lock on the dorm doors. There’s also only two toilets and one shower for the whole building meaning at night it could get a little busy. The breakfast provided was simple - just rice, miso soup and topping. It tasted fine though. Overall, it was a fine place to stay for the price.

    You absolutely get what you pay for. Host wanted to charge extra for sheets to bed and a one night stay. Luckily, I had my own sheets and he forced is to show him our sheets. There is one shower and no hot water. I would never stay here again. The kitchen space was not sanity as it doubled for a bathroom sink. Location not bad. However, if rain expected this isn't location to get an uber or taxi. Walk to bus stop is at least 15 minutes. No lockers and front door open. Positive wifi had no issue.
