Kurashiki Youth Hostel
Reviewed April 5, 2010

Ok, here is a non-exhaustive list of the inconvenients of this hostel:
- it's far from the train station (40 mn walk, assuming you don't get lost)
- even by bus, you still have to walk up a hill for 10 mn through a dodgy area and a cemetary (it may be by night, in the rain, with a heavy luggage and a dog barking at you)
- the guy at the reception is the most unpleasant Japanese I've ever met, cold as ice
- the toilets and wash rooms are not heated. In early spring, it was freezing cold
- the place is so unpopular that you may be the only guest in the hostel. Not a good place to have fun then
Now, let's be honest, there IS one advantage of this hostel:
- the place is so unpopular that you may be the only guest in the hostel: you may have a 4-bed dormitary for yourself only

My personal advice: stay at a hostel elsewhere (Okayama for example, or even further) and take the train to visit Kurashiki. It's not worth it to stay over there.
