“functional for foreigner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2010

I stayed at the Weekly Sho Hostel during an academic trip to Utsunomiya. I was in residence for about 4.5 weeks and the room was adequate as an inexpensive place to sleep and rest from busy days. The room was fairly small, but had a small closet and private bathroom, mini-fridge, TV, and there was free wifi. Common-use microwaves and toaster ovens were located on each floor and there were coin-op laundry facilities available. Important to me (my Japanese is poor), some of the desk staff spoke English, so I was able to resolve issues and ask questions without too much difficulty. The main door was key-card activated overnight for security. The room doors were self-locking and the lock-out fee was quite large, so be sure to have your key-card with you when using the common facilities! A area was provided just outside the main entrance for bike storage. Compared to higher priced hotels, the bed quality was not great, but the price was much less.
