Property Description

'Cook the Oishii moment together'

Emblem's 2nd hostel is now in Kanazawa!
In Emblem Stay Kanazawa, travelers can buy ingredients from local market and cook with other travelers at shared kitchen. We would like to offer a moment that travelers can meet new people through cooking and eating together, and share the Oishii feeling(meaning 'delicious'in Japanese) . It is hard for people living in busy, urban life, to share the warm, chilling moment. So that we would like to offer such 'warm' moment for our guests here in Kanazawa.
Same as our first property in Tokyo (Emblem Hostel Nishiarai), travelers can easily meet both other travelers and locals through activities during the stay.

-Located centrally in Kanazawa, walking distance to most sightseeing places. (only 3 minutes from Omi-cho Market)
-Huge shared kitchen, community lounge, and JACUZZI!
-Check-in after 3 PM, check-out before 10.30 AM
-Free bath towel, shampoo, conditioner, body soap and hair dryer provided
-Credit card acceptable
-Many events happening!!
-Breakfast from 7.30-9.30!

    Had such a great time staying here during our time in Kanazawa. The hostel was very centrally located. It was super easy to walk anywhere. The downstairs bar was a nice place to hang out & listen to music. They also have a private bath to rent by the hour that’s super relaxing. Would definitely recommend staying here to anyone visiting the area.

    The private dorm is worth the extra. The beds are ridiculously comfortable and everything is super quiet. The kitchen facilities were fantastic - you can cook anything you want. This place also hosts cooking classes twice a week which we went to and absolutely loved. It is situated perfectly near the gardens, castle and market. Makes travel on foot the ideal mpde of transport.

    Super clean hostel with excellent facilities. Not much of an atmosphere and felt more like a hotel during the time I was there. Excellent location nearby to nearly all main attraction and the station. Would definitely stay there again.

    Clean quiet and central. 10 minutes to station. Nice restaurants around and 7 eleven close. Market nearby. It grew on me. Only small fault was private bathroom very small. May be just as good to use a share one. But overall a good place to stay and we liked Kanazawa generally.

    Emblem Kanazawa really lacks any character what so ever. You won’t meet anyone because the bar is usually dead and also expensive. It didn’t feel inviting or warm which is why I give it a bad review. However, if you like a “hotel” style hostel, it’s fine. Facilities are average so I think the price is high, but the location is great and staff are friendly.

    The location is great, also the bar and the kitchen. The rooms are really old, dark and small, even though they were clean it was tough to dress and move inside. There is just one toilet and 2 showers for a lot of rooms in the same floor. On the bright side, the staff was really nice and friendly!
