    Great Hostel! We loved it a lot. Nice location, very clean rooms and amazing staff! We always felt so welcome when we came out for breakfast like as the last people ever at 11 o‘clock (Breakfast goes till 11:30). Best hostel ever! 5/5. Would definitely recommend. The atmosphere is amazing as well.

    This is one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at. I felt very welcomed as soon as I arrived and had a conversation with a staff member as if we had known each other. I stayed in an 8 person dorm and the security was great and I had plenty of space to myself. The food and drink menu was pretty great and I really enjoyed the buffet in the morning. Location was fantastic. 1 minute walk to Canal City. I’d say this is a great hostel for a solo traveler and I highly recommend staying here!

    Cool hostel right next to big shopping centre (canal city) and near stations so easy to get around the city. Clean and comfortable and staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    One of the top hostels in Japan. The best lobby BY FAR and really excellent showers (with hooks AND shelves). The staff went out of their way to be helpful and really saved me a lot of effort in extending my stay during a crazy weekend when everything was booked. I can’t recommend this place enough.

    Really nice modern hostel, clean and really comfortable bed. The girl who checked us in was amazingly nice but the rest of the staff were a little bit cold - didn’t feel super welcome there. Not heaps of atmosphere, wouldn’t really recommend as a solo traveller if you plan to meet people.
