Good well-kept hostel. We slept on tatami mats which were comfortable. Washrooms were clean and available on all floors. We did not use the kitchen but it appeared to be very small. Staff were friendly and respectful but were often busy handling a high volume of guests.
Some nit-picking cons:
- Only have 2 PCs for Internet use and was not free (probably because of the limited PCs). Given the size of the hostel and based on previously visited hostels, we expected a few more computers and free to use for guests. Free wireless was available, but unusably slow in our experience (others may have fared better). Again, I'm nit-picking and this will probably be a non-issue for most travellers.
- There is one pay per use laundry machine and if you need to use a drying machine, you must take your laundry across the street to a public laundromat where it is filled with smoking fumes.
Overall, we found this hostel to be reasonable for budget travellers.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Opened in Nov, 2006. A former small Japanese sytle ryokan was partially remodelled into a cool Japanese style backpackers guest house/hostel.
