    A bit too dirty for us

    I recommend researching this local area prior to booking. There were 2 days where a local resident in the house across the street was screaming in the street. This was directly in front of the hostel. Police eventually came both times for the situation. The hostel itself seemed a bit dirty. The air from the vents smelled like urine, and the private room we booked smelled of dirty odor. The bathroom floors seemed to have a lot of hair. The shower stall was clean though. The laundry machine was nice, on the rooftop. View from up there was great. Perhaps this is the standard condition of a hostel, but we expected a little cleaner.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness

    We got bed bugs/dust mites from staying in this hotel. First stay in Japan highly disappointed.

    Pretty good with some improvements needed

    Overall we had a good stay here, it’s quite stylish yet simple. We stayed in a twin room which had a tv, the only issue was the beds, after a couple of nights our backs began to ache. Bathrooms are lovely and they have plenty of them on each floor with great showers. The place is quite clean and I know they make an effort because I saw them cleaning, however I think more attention to detail is needed to make Ian just a little better, corners of rooms for dust/hairs and hair in the bathrooms still there after cleaning time. There’s a shared kitchen which was good too! The staff were great, friendly, helpful and to be honest they make it. Having said that one staff member we met on our last night was very abrupt with us about labelling our food in the fridge; he barked it at us like an order in from of other guests which upset me. There’s a way of talking to people and that isn’t it.

    • Disliked: Room comfort

    Overpriced and Cold

    The room was freezing cold and I wasn’t given a towel or any amenities for using the shower. The bathroom was even more freezing cold so I didn’t even bother asking. Very overpriced when there are much better hostels out there.
