    Excellent Location, Comfort Bed”
    The inn is located near the Nohi Bus Station, about 20min walk. There is a large private space in the capsule-style room with a thick, soft mattress. Cons: Only two shower romm (located in 1st floor) is provided whereas I lived in 2nd floor; There has only 2 toilets. Female and male are arranged to live in an mixed space.

    Good stay”
    Good stay for 1 night. We had the traditional Japanese room which was nice to try. However, the washroom and shower were a bit far from the room and it seems that there was only 2 showers and 1 toilet to share between all the guests, so in the morning, it was a bit chaotic, as many of us were leaving at the same time. It's good enough for 1 night.

    Clean, affordable, and a good place to meet friends!”
    Definitely 5 stars when it comes to value for money. The place is clean and cosy, making for a very comfortable stay during the one night that I spent here in Takayama. On the first floor at the reception, there is a big table at which I had the pleasure of meeting several other travellers. The staff are really friendly too and provide good food recommendations around the town. I savoured my experience here and in Takayama like a cup of good tea

    Located in quiet area across bath house. Around 10-15 minutes walk from the station. Near morning market and old town. They provide coffee and tea, hot water and tap water is drinkable. I stayed at 2nd floor dorm. The room is tiny, but bed area is spacious. The room got natural light from glass windows on the roof. Bathroom and dorm are clean—hairdryer provided. The staff, at that time was Tats, was really helpful. He also remembered all the guests name and made conversation with them. What a nice gesture to make guests feel at home! It was a quiet and nice stay. Recommended!

    Staff were very good. (Tats and didn't ask the other guys name). Easy to talk to and actually had good chats. Were there to help us as required. Place was about 800m walk from train station but easy enough with 3 big suitcases. Plenty to look at. The interior is nice and fresh looking and kept very clean. Room was great(we slept on futons on the floor) and nice and snug even though temps got down below 0 degrees outside(had snow). Wifi very good. Rented bikes for the day at 800 yen each. Affiliated with bath house/onsen across road so got a deal. All 3 of us went for the first time and it was a good experience. Thoroughly recommend Cup of Tea.

    Super friendly and welcoming”
    I loved this hostel. The owner is extremely friendly, welcoming and speaks English really well. He was genuinely interested in his guests and also had nice suggestions for restaurants and places to see. PS to the owner: I'm the one who went to Fuji-Q Park on April 26th (the day before Golden Week). And to answer your question: it's a good day to go, I think. Not too crowded. I rode Eejanaika 4 times and every other rollercoaster once. It was around 20-30 min. wait per coaster, except Fujiyama (which was 60 min. but I bought a fast ticket and waited 2 min). Eejanaika is just INSANE! So good! Sorry for the delayed answer...

    Totally my favorite hostel during this trip”
    Loved how they gave you discounts to other things like the spa across the street. Staff was super friendly and kind. They also have the best bike rental service in Takayama. Renting bikes from them are super cheap, and you can pay for the service after using the bike if no one is there. Just sign your name in the guest book and pay later. The beds were made for you! Thank you so much. I had no clue how to make a Japanese-stylized bed in some of my other hostels. I was also tired after getting in bed and had no energy to make one after going out all day. I was also happy to see that there were two electrical outlets provided for people in their beds. Some of my other hostels didn't have those, which really shocked me when I was there. They handed out maps to people and also took the time to give me some recommendations of the area :') so sweet. Arigatou. I also had fun talking to them!!

    The hostel was really clean and the beds were very comfortable with lots of space and a thick mattress and pillow. The beds each have their own shelves in and there’s space beside the bed. They also had a space big enough to fit our 2 big backpacks under the bed so it was very easy to keep things tidy overall. The guys that were working when we were staying were soo helpful and friendly and suggested tonnes of things to do and places to eat and drink. They basically planned our few days there for us! And we very much enjoyed the restaurants and bars that were suggested to us. Would definitely stay again if we went back to Takayama!

    Left our bags on arrival, when we got back the guys who worked there were really helpful and friendly. We asked for dinner recommendations and they had a whole slideshow 😂 Also sent us to a cool little place where you could do archery. Free tea and coffee availability is great. The capsules in the dorm were really cosy (although the top one was a bit tricky to climb in and out of). Definitely recommended.
