I stayed on my last two nights cycle touring Japan before flying home. The hosts are friendly and helpful. They even gave me a spot to park my bicycle. The bunks are comfortable and the rooms large. There's an awesome deck to sit on and a good sized kitchen area. I would definitely stay here again.

WE stayed for two night at Backpackers Fuji at the start of our 2 month trip around through Japan. We had a double room, and it was a tatami room at the back of the property. The hostel was easy to find from the station and we were carrying back packs. The rooms and communal areas were all spotless and... More

I spent 10 days in Fuji Backpackers. It's just one stop from the airport, and the station's quite near if you want to Central Tokyo. Although nearby are various cultural and natural sites, so you don't need to go far away to have fun.

I guess I can't rate my taxi driver, but he got lost and ended up calling twice to get directions. My taxi fare was more than the night at Backpackers Fuji! This was after giving the taxi driver thorough directions (in Japanese) from the Backpackers Fuji website. After my day in Narita, I've decided that those directions were very good-so... More

Very simple, essential and with great hospitality by Mr. Taka (I hope the name is correct). The rooms are extremely simple, the bathroom is maybe a little too small. Nice common kitchen and dining area, with television and internet. Free WiFi. Very good position for the visit to Narita and the stations. Recommended for a low cost stay in Narita.

The location was a little tricky to find (turns out the taxi driver drove me all the way back to the airport from the train station, which I was really annoyed about to say the least). However, it's a 5-8 minute walk from Narita's train station. The owners are very friendly. The place has a very homey feel to it,... More

This place is a little bit difficult to find, but it is a great place to stay. Great location! It is near restaurants of all budgets and there is a small grocery store nearby. A short beautiful stroll to Narita Temple and Narita Park. It is in the center of old town Narita. Bus stop to Aeon mall is very... More

Taka & Kiho are wonderful host! Taka-san even picked me up from the train station! They made my trip to Japan very special. Taka-san told me about the temples and a neighborhood school festival in Narita. I went and had a great time, met new people, made new friends and learned a lot about Japanese culture. Big hug to Summer... More

We were looking for the the place for last day since we were to have early flight next day. Backpackers Fuji was the answer. This place offers the very low price. However, the place is little far from the station. It's not the problem if you know how to read their map. Narita is quiet city so it might be... More

Although Backpackers Fuji is quite a walk away from the nearest train station, the owner gave free rides back and forth from the station and the hostel. This hostel is pretty English-friendly as the owner also speaks a good amount of the language. The lobby was cute and welcoming (all guests can even take home a little souvenir). There's also...
