  • Pros: - Very near a lot of convenience stores, the 7-Eleven is right across the street - Near the post office and ATM that serves international cards - Near Nakano Station and Nakano Broadway - Cooking events together Cons: - Thin wooden walls - The bathrooms needs much more regular cleaning and maintenance, the hairs in the small bathroom is really not inviting, along with the irregular hot water. - The badly placed aluminium sink that makes such a racket through the thin walls.

  • The location is great (5 min walk from Nakano sta.) and the staff is really helpful and friendly. No matter how you look at it, this place offers great value for your money. There are a few things to consider though: The bathroom on the top floor stinks enough to make a man nauseous, even though it is seemingly cleaned regularly. There is no soap even in the bathroom so make sure to bring some. Lastly, the rooms have paper thin walls so you can hear everyone around you. Still recommended though.

  • From metro/JR station, there's about the 10-minute walk distance to the hostel, not really far away. The hostel is a little small but clean, and the staff are polite. For security, thay have electronic security lock for the door on first floor. Anyway not bad, can really consider to live in.

  • My experience at Yadoya guest house was great. The location is good, the shower is clean, etc. If I had a chance to go back to Japan, I would definitely stay here again.

  • Really unclean and small, but staff were very helpful and had perfect English which was great. Would only recommend if you want somewhere to sleep and shower.
