It was clean
There’s nothing wrong. You get what you pay for
Very clean, comfortable and they have very helpful staff who helped us lift our luggage
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.
