not a very comfortable stay. there were no staff working (due to covid) which meant i just had to leave exact change in my room, there was an additional 400 yen added to my total on the paper form and i'm not totally sure why. the building was old, quite old and creaky and kind of cold. the bunks were super cramped, i couldn't even sit up straight in mine and i'm only 5 foot 6. the bathrooms were outside.

Significant issues: Had to carry a heavy bag all day since storage is unprotected. Had to call three times costing me almost as much as the room just because check-in info was incorrect, couldn't enter desk area and find the "hidden" stairway. This was considered funny. The guy at the front desk had as his first priority to get me out of there instead of answering questions. The hostel itself is actually fine and would rate it ok but these issues caused significant and expensive hurdles.
