Hiro is a great guy and was very welcoming and friendly to us. There was another temporary staff member from Australia who was also nice. When we got there Hiro gave us mandarins he got from a neighbor which were amazing! The guesthouse is located in Korea Town, where you can eat the best chijimi you've ever had in your... More

This is really a good place to stay. For a single tatami room, it actually can accommodate for more than 3 persons. Mr Hiro is really nice and helpful. The location might a bit far from the Tsuruhashi station. For me, it took almost more than 20 mins walking from the station to the hostel. For those travel with big... More

We only stayed one night but Hiro really went out of his way to accommodate us. A great place for non Japanese speakers- Hiro gave us a recommendation for okonomiyaki and even wrote out an order for us to take... very welcome as it was our first night in Japan! Afterwards we spent the night in a nearby yakitori bar... More

Hiro is a great host, he gives great advice and is very willing to help travellers with his language skills in English, Korean and Japanese. We LOVED exploring the narrow laneways of Korea Town (the Guest House is on the actual Korea Town street next to a big gate) and it was just the change we needed from our usual... More

I've used this guesthouse 3 times. I found this on the Google map 2 years ago, and I stayed aline that time. I can suggest you book the Hiro's with your friends or teammates as I did. The price of one bed of dormitory rooms is 2500 Japanese yen( approximately 2.5$ ) per night. Restrooms & shower rooms are clean.... More

One is awesome because the owner, Hiro is very helpful, cheerful, and would really give good advises where to eat, shop, or ride. Second, memorable once you stay in the guesthouse I am sure you will be bring back a lot of good... More

Great place to chill out with the very relaxt owner calles Hiro. The place is in the middle of korea town which is a nice area to stay. The rooms are very comfortable with airco on each seperate room. P.s. try the strong zero drink which he has in his fridge it's quite interesting :)

I spent two months at Hiro's and could hardly have had a better stay. I immediately felt welcome, and quickly felt at home. I found Hiro's to be a home away from home, a place where I could leave my things, enjoy a good night's rest, and feel at ease. Against the stress and fatigue of travel, Hiro's place provides...

I spent a week at Hiro's after moving a round a lot for 3 weeks. His guest house is the perfect antidote for those looking for somewhere to relax and take life slower! A very cool cafe area welcomes you, situated at the heart of the bustling Korea Town marketplace. It's ~10min walking distance to the nearest train station, but... More
