  • VERY CLEAN. Female dorm is very small and can get crowded. Living room area is great and they offer instant noodles at 150yen among other things. Near a shrine and nightlife.

  • Hostel was dark, dingy, unpleasant, unclean and cramped. Sheets were stained. NO room to move and nowhere to put your bags. The bathrooms were pokey, dark and not clean. Ten beds in the dorms, tells me that the owners are more interested in money than service, especially because others have commented and they have not reduced the number of beds. There was no natural light in the rooms- nothing like photos. Kitchen was messy.

  • It's in a nice area and the hostel is fairly clean with the basic toiletries. I read some good and bad reviews before arriving and had my reservations but upon staying, I think it is great value for money. They put me on a bunk bed with another female traveller which I was thankful for as I had to make a reservation for the mixed dorm. In the room itself, everyone gets a small locker for valuables so I think security is pretty well taken care off.

  • Great location and it was great to sleep in a room just for girls. When I walked in and saw all pink and calm I've wanted to sleep there. The bed is very comfortable as the blanket. Maybe it was not the cleanest place I've ever been , but it is totally acceptable. I wish I could stay one more night there, because the atmosphere and the staff were very kind.

  • - Making it clear that the hostel is on the 3-5 floor of the "Sakura Building" would make the place easier to find -/+ light on the bunk was VERY dim + I was very impressed with how willing the staff was to help out/give directions/look up fastest bus routes etc + A multitude of options of cheap food/drinks available for purchase in the lounge + A great place to meet fellow travelers and share stories!

  • The staff was amazing, and the location was fantastic. For 2000 yen you can't expect much, but they provided more than adequate services for the money they charge. It would be nice if the doors to the dorm rooms were a bit thicker/more sound proof. But other than that I had a great stay.
