Fabulous 8.6 From 52 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
A wonderful stay
Shimokita was the first time I got to stay in a "pod styled" hostel, and to be honest, I was not sure what to expect. However, the place was very affordable, and comfortable. The beds are well maintained, the pods are large enough that you don't feel claustrophobic, and the common area is lively with hostellers chitchatting about various things. The hostel is kept very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The surrounding area is bustling with activities, while not being too crowded. For vegetarians (like me), there are two vegan ramen places within 800m. Overall a very satisfying experience. 5/5 would recommend to everyone.
