    Good location for the philosophers path and temple's. Cheap and cheerful but don't stay in a hostel if you like your comforts!

    Everything ok for what we paid. Not many restaurants or shops around

    Very peaceful and clean. The neighborhood was lovely.

    I hope there was information on how to get to the hostel from the nearest station. Took us a long time to locate it.

    The price was unbeatable for a japanese style private room and the bathrooms were clean.

    Kitchen looked very dirty and everything looked very run down.
