In center of town, not too far from train station. Room is neat and clean.
There is a lot to like about this place! First off, they are the only place I have stayed in Japan which has a electricity-powered shoe dryer, which was extremely useful since we came from Kamikochi where it was raining days before. They have a computer which was free for all guests to use, and many, many helpful information and brochures on not just Takayama, but also the surrounding area. You can literally find anything you want to know about Takayama from food, activities, special events, bus / train timings, maps, etc. I really appreciate the effort from the hostel to gather and collect all these information for us. There is also a well-equipped kitchen and a nice cosy little common area for people to hang out. The toilets and bathrooms were sufficient for a hostel of this size. The dormitory futons were clean and super comfortable and the capsule was relatively spacious. I felt the partitions are not as thin as the other hostels I have been to, and I definitely felt I had my own private space in this dormitory. They also provided extra pillows if you needed them!
Nothing much to dislike about this place really. One small little thing was that during check-in the staff initially told us we are not able to use our Takayama-Hokuriku Pass to travel to Shirakawago, but that was corrected almost immediately by another staff. I am okay if the staff may not have the knowledge, but I feel they should not be providing guests with the wrong knowledge. But still that came about only because the staff was trying to be helpful in understanding our itinerary, so a big thumbs up to that!
Excelent location, super friendly and helpful stuff who helps you to find everything nearby that you need. Very clean and comfortable facilities and public spaces.
We Check in late after 9PM (18/10/19) because our flight arrive 3:30pm.We wait longtime for immigration and we take long time for travel from airport to takayama. But we recieved too many complaints from your staff.
very helpful staff, nice and relaxed and friendly - cute little hostel, nothing too massive. Enjoyed the glass of sake that was offered
