I got the tour package from Kyoto to Hida Takayama and it's inclusion was a night stay at J Hoppers. I followed the advises here and stayed away from the windows so it would not be as chilly. I had a good night sleep too. The water heater was not a problem in terms of taking showers. The staff were... More

I spent 3 nights in J-Hoppers and had a good time. I stayed in the female dormitory. The room was clean and spacious. Friendly staff with very good English. They provided good recommendations of where to visit and detailed instructions.

Stayed here for two nights to explore Takayama and was not dissappointed. The staff were lovely, and after talking to one was recommended a great curry place where I bumped into him having dinner, another great chat with him and locals ensued. The rooms are what you would expect at any youth hostel/guesthouse, several bunk beds in each room with... More

This hostel is situated very close to the railway station and is very easy to locate right opposite the post office. The staff is friendly and helpful at all times. We stayed in a Japanese style room that accommodated 2 of us and it was lovely with its wooden sliding doors and windows, straw mats and lamps. The common washrooms... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel, which is located in the heart of Takayama. A short walking distance to the markets, Nohi bus terminal, all of the shops and the Hida folk village. There was plenty of space in the female dorm and the privacy curtains came in handy. The hostel was clean and the staff were extremely... More

Room is clean and staffs are nice. The hotel is located closed to Takayama Station and you can walk and it is easily to find. The price is reasonable as well. You can also rent a bike to travel around the city...

This is a clean hostel within walking distance to the train station. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a kitchen area with plates, glasses, mugs, etc that is kept clean. We stayed in the twin tatami room with futon bedding and an ensuite bathroom. You have to set up your own futon bedding but instructions are provided.... More

Arrived at the hostel around midnight the staffs were very helpful with the checking-in and very friendly. Excellent location, close to the station. The room was very clean and comfortable.
