Staff were lovely and felt like a very friendly place.
Pillows were very uncomfortable.
The staff was friendly.
The bed was terribly uncomfortable. I could feel the boards on my back and every time the person underneath me moved the entire bed frame shook significantly. Not to mention that the privacy sheet didn’t even cover the whole bed so people could still see inside. The bathroom was next the beds which I guess is ok, a little noisy though. The shower was downstairs which was a little annoying, but that’s fine. The common space wasn’t comfortable so everyone just hung out in there rooms. Also it said that it was a 5 min bus ride when it was more like a 15 min ride and not really located to anything close. Honestly, I paid for 2 nights, but got another hostel (that was nicer and cheaper) after 1 night.
+ Even though sleeping in a room with 16 beds, it was relatively quiet. + The big pillow in the bed is really nice if you want to chill before sleeping
- It didn't feel clean at all, especially the kitchen and shower rooms (which are next to each other) - Showers are located on the 1st floor, in the common room (which is annoying) - In the showers there is only a small basket to place clothes for dry keeping and keeping them dry. - There are only 3 showers for everyone - You need to take the elevator or fire escape stairs to get your floor. If there is a fire, there really is only one escape route and that is the fire escape. That is unsafe.
No personal and dirty
It was clean, the staff was friendly and it had all the amenities you would expect in a hostel.
The atmosphere was nothing special and neither was the common area. There are a bunch of tables and chairs, but no couches or anything that make you feel like chilling out there, which means it can be harder to meet other guests. The location is just ok, close to Nijo Castle, but I didn't go there because it looked boring. They write 5 minutes to the train station, but it's more like 15 minutes.
