You might find J-Hoppers in other cities in Japan - its same group. you'll get special discount IF you've been stayed in their hostel. In Takayama, I stayed only one night since I took their half day tour to Shirakawa Go and it was awesome tour. Wifi is free and there is a room for you to drink tea/coffee. it's... More

We arrived at the hostel about 8pm looking forward to a good rest but to our horror, the staff told us our booking was cancelled and there wasn't any bed for us. My friend booked 4 beds via booking.com. She later cancelled 1 bed and a notification was sent to J-Hoppers. The staff took for granted that the whole booking... More

We stayed in a tatami room and felt like we were in a Yasujiro Ozu movie. It even had the authentic tatami fragrance! Great air con, tv with hilarious Japanese channels, brilliant location and helpful staff. Couldn't really ask for more.

Excellent service, adorable people, clean beds, toilets and shower rooms. It's a shame that I only booked for one night, that was way too short. I definitely will book again, and I would also recommend for others to book for the accommodation.

Was in JHopper last winter when I visited Tayakama, staff were friendly, rooms were clean, and all visitors seemed to blend in well with each others. Spent much time in the kitchen chatting with people from all over the world, I saw they offered day trip to attractions as well. Incredibly cozy environment with the budget, i'd recommend all young... More

I stayed in this J-Hoppers property for 2 nights during the new year of 2013. It's one of my favorite J-Hoppers thus far. The room is pretty spacious; toilets and shower stalls are in good condition. It was pretty cold when I visited Hida-Takayama, but my room was warm and cozy. Super friendly and helpful staff; good food recommendation! I... More

J-Hoppers is conveniently located close to the JR train station and bus station. Takayama is a walkable city but you can also rent bicycles from J-Hoppers. The hostel has a nice big kitchen, comfortable dorm rooms with plenty of space to put your backpack, plenty of bathrooms, 2 chill-out rooms and a small backyard for smokers. They have snow boots...
