First thing you should know is that there are 5 floors and no elevator. So if you're like me and have heavy bags, being placed on the 5th floor is somewhat of a nightmare. Also, showers are only located on the 2nd and 3rd floors, and the 3rd floor doesn't have toilets. So if you're staying here be prepared for... More

Very friendly staff. Clean hostel, good kitchen facilities and great location close to the train station. Shared a twin room with no en-suite facilities, although there was a toilet and sink unit on the 4th floor there was no shower. Internet access on all floors. Air con in room but was not very effective. I would definitely recommend this place... More

We went for our first trip to Japan and stayed 2 nights in a private room. There were no bath on our floor and no towels for us. The walls between the rooms were very thin and we could hear everything. That meant we didnt sleep much at night, since many were coming home from bars/clubs. But the staff were... More

We arrived here but found it to be booked out. The guesthouse staff went above and beyond by phoning around the nearest hostels/hotels and helping us to book a hotel online. Judging by the other reviews, J-Hoppers is not to be missed.

This is by far one of the most amazing hostels in Japan, that i have been to. The rooms are nice and clean (even though the stairs are really steep and there is no elevator, but i did not really care), the bathrooms are also very clean and are being tended every day. The staff is amazingly friendly and you... More

Stayed here for only one night and wished I could have stayed for longer! The lay-out of the hostel really makes you feel like you're at home - they also serve free coffee and tea - always a plus. Showers and bathrooms are well appointed and they also have a coin-operated washing machine and laundry area where you can wash... More
