Staff are nice. as always. The common room is very homey. I had a good time. The single room I was given had a very noisy AC though but that's okay with me. Not a big deal. Just an FYI. The shower in the 3rd floor is still out of service. It would be nice if there's no need for those who stay in the 3rd floor to go up the 4th floor for shower. But again, also not a big deal. Just an FYI. I look forward to staying here again next year! Very close to the Glico running man, train stations, all the shops, restaurants, and Amemura. Right outside the hostel, there's so much to see already. You don't even have to prepare an itinerary anymore. We didn't finish ours! The location is so perfect! Bathroom is clean!
