After the first two days in Kyoto after I stayed at the Bakpak Hostel, I went for 5 nights to Hoppers, for me one of the best Hostels in Japan, only 5 minutes from Kyoto station, makes it perfectly located, and it is quiet. Like the rest of the J Hoppers Backpackers hostels it is very clean, friendly, with a great staff and it's easy to socialize with other travelers. It costed about 20 Euros for a bed and a room.
I love this Ryokan and have been there twice. It is very clean and the price is more than reasonable, besides being situated very close to the metro Assakusa. The shared rooms are cozy and comfortable. It has a kitchen and bathroom for communal use. I recommend it 100%. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to write me.
J Hopper Hostel is a perfect place to stay in Osaka for a good price. Centrally located just 1 stop from Osaka Umeda, the central station and the city, it is a hostel chain newly established in Japan. You can find it in the residential zone of pedestrian streets. It is a very clean and tidy hotel with a fantastic staff. It offers dorm and private rooms, has wifi and a roof that you can sit out on. For about 20 euros you have a bed in Osaka. It's a perfect place for backpackers and travelers. To get there, you have to get off at the Fukushima station that's on the circular JR OSAKA LOOP LINE.
Another Hoppers hostel chain in Takayama, in the mountainous area of JAPAN. It is a perfect location to discover both this pleasant villa and surrounding area, to get you to do it in the JR train from Nagoya, the hostel is 1 minute from the train station. The rest of the chain is extremely clean, the beds are spectacular, fantastic staff, impeccable service, a good place for both travelers and backpackers who prefer a hostel to a hotel
Once again, I must restate my love for J Hoppers in Hiroshima, perfectly located only 5 minutes from the Peace Memorial Museum. Once again, it was super clean, the staff was great, and the room was under 25 euros. To get from the JR Hoopers Hostel from the train station you catch the tram and get off at Dobashi, which is 1 minute from the hostel.
The Hostel Bakpak was where I stayed my first 2 days in Kyoto because both my first and second option, the J and Ks Hoppers Hostel were full. This hostel is perfectly situated close to the River and the center of Kyoto, near the nightlife area with many shops and restaurantess, as well as Historic Places. One can get there with relative ease , as well as the park. The atmosphere and decor is a bit strange, dedicated to famous manga, but it does have charm. The kitchen is small and the rooms are good, where you can have 4 people in a small living room with sofa and TV. It is a good choice but I prefer the J Hoppers Hostels, to which I would move have moved to after those first 2 nights. It was a bit more expensive than the Hoppers and KS, the bed comes out to about 25 euros per night.
If you're looking for a place to stay on a tight budget in Hiroshima, Japan the Hiroshima Hana Hostel is a great option. The hostel is approximately a 5 minute walk from JR Hiroshima Station. You can get a double room from 30 euros per person. The rooms are either Japanese or Western style. You can rent bikes for less than 5 euros a day. A washing machine and dryer. Sheets are provided but not towels. I do not remember how much it cost us, I think less than 1 euro. A recommended site.
Perhaps the best hostel in Tokyo, valued both by guides and travelers commenting on Hostelworld as one of the best hostels in Asia. It's location is very close to the subway and the downtown JR stations- Ueno Station and Tokyo Station. It has rooms for about 24 euros including a bedroom and living room. The living room is very nice, with tatami. There is wifi in the hostel. It has great staff and is a great place for backpackers and travelers
You will without a doubt enjoy this small Japanese style accommodation in the city of Takayama. We went to this place on the occasion of Takayama Matsuri, a series of day and night processions worth seeing that are the essence of a traditional festival. From the train station, the Rickshaw Inn, the place is good, it is just a 10 minute walk away. As a 1st impression, I noticed that it was a nice place. The price was good (They were the prices of 2005). We enjoyed the common areas, whose environment invited me to get cozy. We also liked the breakfast, we had it in the lounge of the Inn, to the rhythm of music of those envelopes, like those in Starbucks. I remember thinking how, unfortunately, we do not often apply that concept in our daily life and other holidays. The truth is that we loved it. It is run by a Japanese-Australian couple and is a very welcoming place. I would definitely return. Nice, with a book to read and ready to explore the city, it's worth it.
Cheap, clean, warm and well located. We made an upgrade to private deluxe that has a small table with tatami where you can read and eat, the rest of the room is small, enough if you are just staying a little bit. Pluses: they speak English very well, there is info about the area, free wifi in rooms and common areas, fully equipped kitchen.
I went to Japan a few times, and tried all different types of accommodation during my stay. Definitely K's House Kyoto is the best place where you can find young travelers visiting Japan.. A pleasant, quiet, and youthful place. Employees are always willing to help with anything you need. Accommodation are those of a "backpacker", but with all the facilities in the world.
The Tokyo trip was great! the first night it started raining and even with the fog I managed to get this photo of the Asakusa Temple with the Tokyo Sky View in the background without a tripod! :-) This particular place at Sakura Hostel where you're treated well and the quality - price ratio is, as they say, good, nice and cheap: D
Japan is an expensive country, and space is severely limited. A bed can cost a fortune. This hostel has a great location in Asakusa, one of the best neighbourhoods in Tokyo, near several tourist attractions as well as the subway. The hostel is large, clean and modern, with a kitchen, meeting rooms ... but what really makes it stand out is the staff. Helpful and friendly, they take a genuine interest in guests. When it's time to pay, they'll give you a personalised note with your name and a few words in your language, as well as some Japanese candy. They promote different activities, like hiking. Some are free, others have a small fee. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in, and one of my happiest memories of Tokyo.
With private rooms, I recommend them for their mountain views, it´s amazing to watch them disappear every night. Accommodation includes and breakfast and a japonese dinner. There are approximately 10 dishes and you can order an special requirements in advance(as in my case, I can not eat fish). The Japanese breakfast is a little weird, but it's all nice, it's a cultural thing. The best part of the hotel is the service and its interior with rooms overlooking the majestic mountain. There is free tea and coffee in the lobby with wifi (and a computer with internet). Sweets are served in the hotel all day, a perfect way to enjoy the terrace views . Honestly, one of our great experiences in travel so far in Japan.
The Ace Inn Shinjuku will be sure to put you at ease. The staff speak English, and are friendly, providing you with all the information about the area that you could ask for. It's a 10-story tower just one or two stops from Central Station in Shinjuku, one of the liveliest districts in Tokyo (if you miss the train, it's a 20-25 minute walk). It's somewhere between a capsule hotel and a hostel, mixing the best of the two. The capsules are made of wood, similar to the berths of a ship: spacious, comfortable, and a world apart from the drawers of a typical capsule hotel. The cleanliness is outstanding. There are two types: economy in in a shared room (about 20 euro per night) or luxury (about 35 euro per night) with a little space and privacy. There's a casual atmosphere with a lively common room, and the hotel organises activities (Japanese conversation classes for beginners, walking tours, etc) for the younger crowd. Highly recommended. Directions: From the station Akebonobashi Toei Shinjuku Line, take the exit A2, turn left and you will find it on the left after a few hundred metres.
A very central hostel in the city of Hiroshima. A 10 minute walk to the A-Bomb Dome, with single rooms with a shared bathroom and shower, for about 20 euros a person. Clean and quiet, with nice staff. Well-connected, with several convenience stores nearby.
