Fabulous 8.8 From 227 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Great little stop-over..
This place had everything I needed for a little stop-over before heading on to Kyoto.. In a little alley near a bunch of great ramen joints, and conveniently located within walking distance of a station, it has the feel of a back-packer hostel.. The room I had was a little small, but that said, had everything I needed (TV which I didn't use and a fridge for cold beers, etc.) Deep shower/bath combo, comfy bed.. A heap of great little polaroid shots of people having a whole heap of fun, shame I wasn't there on a more livelier night.. :) All in all, a great little out of the way place to rest and have some fun.. :)

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent hostel, will return.
The hostel was great, it looks quite new and everything is really clean and tidy. It's my first time staying in hostels and I really like this one. The room was really big and everyone had sufficient personal space. The bed was comfortable too. But one thing about this hostel is its location, it's kind of creepy to go into the alley late at night alone. But other than this everything was excellent

Fair 4.0
Stinky dorm room
Lobby was so nice but I was quite stunned with smell in the dorm once I opened the door for a very little second. The outside of room was great but the inside should be well maintained. One reason that I would take me there for next stay is only location.

Good 6.0
I am quite disappointed for this hostel. When I booked a Shared Female Dormitory, I did not expect I have to share bathroom with men. All Female, Men and Mix Dormitory are on the same floor sharing only 2 bathing room which is clearly not enough. And the staff started cleaning from around 9am despite the check-out time is 10am. I feel really uncomfortable when a male staff walked into the female toilet when I was brushing my teeth and he even did not say anything such as "Excuse me" or "sorry" before came in. He just came in and start washing towers next to me. I understand hostel is about casual and no service, but at least I request some basic manners which is why I will not choose this and their other hostels next time.
