Location was fairly good, with it being a 20min walk to major temples/sites. The shuttle service offered to the station every morning was useful. English is well spoken, and advice was good. Apart from this, the large open living area of hostel with log stove is really the only good thing about this place.
On the whole though this place has a slightly impersonal approach, with chaotic organisation. Meals were late, and often forgotten about, which is made worse by the fact that you pay a slightly pricey amount when you order. Portions were not up to the job given hiking is your likely pursuit.
On the whole the place is not that clean and the shower room is especially dirty and smelly with broken fixtures. Onsen/bath was out of use without explanation. All of the Shampoo/soap bottles had not been replenished.
Laundry is not a listed service, which is inconvenient.More
