2/10 Poor

Don’t do it.
Couldn’t arrange late check-in despite the booking saying late access available until midnight and we called ahead. They cancelled our booking without letting us know and refused a refund. They then wanted us to pay an additional 300,000 yen if we wanted to stay. Last minute did noting to assist and now we are stranded without accom and 210,000 yen out of pocket. Obviously avoid.

2/10 Poor

Scam hotel/guest house
Worst experience EVER in all my extensive travels. No heat; aggressive unfriendly landlady who promised to cancel reservation and didn't; run down shabby looking house and interior; neighborhood the same; very difficult to find. Unfriendly money-hungry Landlady charges for EVERYTHING including items small and not listed as requiring payment, felt like I was being scammed (and have spent lots of previous time in Japan). EVERY other place I have stayed in Japan has been wonderful and helpful. STAY AWAY!

Excellent stat
Wonderful owner, gave us a ride to a nearby restaurant and negotiated a discount. 6 bed bunk room was clean. Great location near train station
Verified Expedia guest review

4/10 Fair

Too many hidden fees
Arrive late, there is a fee. For the air conditioning, there is a fee for that. Want to borrow a bike, there is a fee. Planned a Kay minute trip with my cousin which is why I had to choose this place as it was the only one remaining that is affordable. Will never stay there again. The next hostel that I know in Tokyo is Utano Youth Hostel.
