    My partner and I enjoyed our one night here. The owners were really kind to allow us to send our ski gear to the hostel from the airport so that we didn't have to carry everything on the train. The hostel is only 5 minutes from the train station, and 25 minutes from the temple. They have some weird hours in which guests aren't allowed to hang out at the hostel but this didn't affect us because we were out early. Rooms are pretty standard Japanese style with bean bag pillows.

    + easy walk from train station + very clean + staff were super friendly and helpful + the rooms actually get dark if you like sleeping in caves like me - uncomfortable beds - strange lock-out hours - not the most social atmosphere (though I ended up chatting with the staff a lot and they were great) - as far as I could tell, no safes to store valuables

    Great location, very close to the station, and kind staff who were very accommodating with leaving luggage before checking in. The rooms and showers were clean and spacious, with good AC! Laundry facilities were cheaper than in other hostels Not much of an atmosphere, people keep to themselves. You can hear the trains at night which might be a problem if you’re a very light sleeper. The keys to my dorm were left in the lock at night (with signs saying to not to remove them) which was a bit odd?

    Good place but pretty boring outside of peak season. No events on and a depressing vibe in the common room.
