Although I only stayed one night I really enjoyed it. It is a very convienent option if you plan to stop for a day or more in Takayama. Price is more than ok and the rooms are like the tradicional Ryokans one. Ours had a bath and toilet too. (everything very clean). Staff was nice, helpful and they did speak... More

Stayed here for 3 nights to enjoy Takayama and surrounds. The hostel itself is in a great location, close to the station as well as to the historic district. We booked a double private room. The hostel staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The common areas were clean, with a well-stocked kitchen for self-caterers, but plenty of... More

I was surprised to find that Takayama is a big tourist destination for many westerners. This meant that the hostel reception spoke the best English I've encountered so far. They were super friendly and helpful and there are guests here from all over. It's super easy to find from the train station and easy to walk everywhere so great location.... More

It is a no frills hostel at a conveniently low price. Not normally fussy when it comes to hostels but comparing to other hostels we have stayed in Japan for similar price, there are a few cons. Pros + Easy to find and close to station + Good showers Cons - Not much in way of common areas - Washing... More

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
