The bed was nice and soft, super comfy! The rooms could use a bit more in terms of decor, currently you pretty much only have concrete walls surrounding you with couple of bolts added as coat hooks. Sadly the noise isolation in the rooms is on the bad side, and you can hear the discussions happening in the hall and neighboring rooms. The younger cleaning staff were nice and cheerful, but the front desk experience left a lot to be desired. If you check-in after 21.00, you will have an envelope taped to the front door of the establishment (which is also locked) on how to find your keys, there’s absolutely no staff staying at the hotels after that, so they’re not there to enforce the rules of silence, or help you out with any problems you may encounter. Also worth mentioning is that Kangaroo hotel “Side A” is completely unmanned, the reception and everything is over on side B The area is ok, but there are options available in the same area that are closer to the station, it takes about 15-20min walk from Minami-Senju station to the hotel. Overall enjoyable experience, but I do hope they would have someone on site to maintain silence and keep the check-in open

You get what you play for.
Stayed as a couple — wouldn’t recommend it for pairs; the rooms are just too small to unpack your luggage for stuff, and to sleep on the futon. We had the private twin room. Also, the bedding still had hair strands from the previous guest. Room noise is quite good, in that others inside their rooms won’t hear you if it’s within 40 dB, but outside in the lobby, everything can be heard. The lobby is a massive echo chamber, just saying. Wifi for 2nd floor was shut down at 1am for some odd reason, then came back online in the morning. Location isn’t the greatest for touring, and food. You also have to trek a long flight of upstairs everything time you need to get to the nearest station. Front guest and interaction with staff was great! Phenomenal customer service. It’s a shame that a hotel with great service is crippled by its location and physical dimensions. We recommend this hotel for solo budget travellers. Couples and pairs — please move on.

Tiny room with no private bathroom but super cheap
Checking in and out was relatively easy. I did not know that this was a hostel type of hotel but with individual rooms. If I were by myself, no problem, but I was with my mom who was uncomfortable. It's cheap though and that's the bonus as I had more funds to spend on delicious food.It's an 11 minute walk to a train station, or just 30 minutes to Asakura station. There are several restaurants nearby, some that speak Japanese only but download google translate and make sure you have cash. Cash in Japan is uber important. There's a grocery store 2 minute walk, on the main street. There's corner stores and 711 is nearby as well. Not a bad place if you're looking for a very cheap place to spend the night and don't mind tiny cramped rooms to save money. Also, if you don't mind walking.

Upscale Hostel
This place is basically an upscale hostel. Good prices, but if you want the luxuries of a hotel room, search elsewhere. Beware, they only supply you with a small towel. So if you use a full size towel, you better bring one yourself.
