Unfortunately, no longer the best hostel. Bad experience and no atmosphere. Lots of locals, some acting weird, either talking to themselves or making weird noises. Room smelled like a shelter for homeless, it wasn’t pleasant at all. Probably the lady who stayed their during my whole stay and I haven’t seem her leave the place. Not even sure she showered, anyways the room smelled bad.

This property was really nice. They gave a fresh towel everyday, you didn’t have to wash your own dishes which is unheard of in a hostel, it’s basically right next to a bike rental if that’s something you want to do. The place is very clean, only think really lacking was the atmosphere but in general I didn’t experience a hostel in all of Japan that had an amazing atmosphere. It’s a culture thing since they’re a very quiet people. I also traveled almost as soon as they reopened so that could have something

Pro: The hostel itself is beautiful. It’s clean, has lots of space, awesome bathrooms and showers and a hang out kitchen area. Con: area is 15 min walk to the main core. Staff kept opening my curtain while sleeping. Man working there basically kicked me out at 10;30, tho I said I’m paying for an hour extension. He kept saying check out check out and was just standing there above me the whole time. He watched me pack my stuff, it was Rude and unprofessional. I don’t get why he did that.
