Friendly, clean, homey hostel
This was a very pleasant place to stay. It is in a delightful quiet and charming neighborhood of tiny streets, old homes, small shops, even small hidden shrines and so quiet, but close to major streets. We rented bicycles and were able to explore many sites. The hosts are very gracious, welcoming, and helpful! We were very comfortable and felt at home during our stay.

Great value in a quiet neighborhood
We stayed in this little hostel for two days in last month. The area is charming, quiet local residential area. The hostel is designed as a family house with about 10 bedrooms, a full kitchen and a living room. It has at least 2 showers and 2 toilets plus 3 sinks in the 2nd floor where the most of the bedrooms are located. The staffs are all young ladies who can speak English pretty well. They had been in US as exchange students. They made our stay very pleasant by helping us with nice suggestions on buses, restaurants, attractions and trains. If you don't mind to take a little walk everyday from the hostel to bus or subway stations, this is a nice place for a change from the noisy touristy area. We found this is perfect for us. On the night of Christmas Eve, the staffs held a party in the hotel and they had fun with their guests and friends. One of the participants in the party is the architect who designed this hostel. I got a chance to meet and talked to him. Things need improvement, in my personal opinion: I had hard time to find the light switch in the kitchen when I need to see things in there early morning. Suggesting staff to mark the switch location clearly and let guest know about it. Also the temperature in the 2nd floor hallway was on the cold side for winter. May be add an additional heater in there would help. Overall, great value in a quiet neighborhood.

Great, affordable, comfortable
The staff were amazing amd helpful. We had a lovely stay. Facilities were clean. Breakfast was cereal, rice, bananas and toast which was better than all the other hostels we stayed at. They had bikes we could rent to get around. It is easily connected to the city centre by bus. There are convenience stores close by and a few eating options that the staff will show you where they are on the map.
