    Absolutely spotless, with a good location between the train station and the old town. Staff is very kind and, knowing the area well, can give good information about places to visit.

    The staff in particular were very wonderful and welcoming, and made some excellent recommendations for restaurants that wouldn’t be busy but provided great food

    The hostel was a bit stuffy and hot but it’s also summer so I can’t complain too much

    Very close to Takayama Station (less than 5min walk). There are many lovely cafes nearby! The staff were lovely and the rules that were in place were for courtesy to the other travelers. For instance, if packing after 10pm we were asked to do so in the lobby (which is on the same floor) which was not any additional hassle for me and just generally lended for a quieter sleeping experience. Mini light and locker in each capsule. Provided with towel. The showers and toilet were lovely. The common area had really lovely natural light coming in from the windows and was lovely for journaling.

    Nothing in particular! There’s no elevator to the 3rd floor where the reception is which may be relevant to some
