    Stayed a couple nights here with my brother, and we had an absolutely fantastic time! The staff and hosts were super friendly, helpful, and kind. Had a great time drinking sake in the common room with everyone in the evenings. Koga-san was the best! Thank you!

    Really nice hostel with awesome staff and a great atmosphere. Perfect location right next to the station (less than 5 minute walk). Staff were so friendly and so much help. Beds weren’t anything too crazy but were still fine. Definitely would stay there again.

    Very cosy hostel. Very close to the Nagano station, still far enough from the bustle. Very warm and welcoming. You may find better facilities elsewhere, but it feels more how a hostel should be, than how I've found around Japan. I'll definitely recommend this, especially if you are planning for more than a day. P.S. there is free sake on offer.

    + 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?

    They actually kick you out of the hostel from 10:30-16:00 every day for some inexplicable reason. I also received bites and some sort of infestation from some mystery insect.
