Has more of a capsule hotel vibe rather than a hostel vibe, in part due to the many rules which are in place e.g. do not stay in the common area for too long, leave the premises as soon as you have checked out etc. Because of this, it was a little difficult to meet other travellers. Nonetheless, the hostel was fantastically clean, the staff and owner were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help and the place was very quiet, meaning I was able to get a good night's sleep. Location is a 15 minute walk to the centre of town, but there are lots of shops, restaurants etc. very close by. Wifi was a little temperamental, specifically towards the end of the evening, I assume when the number of users increased. A great place to stay if you are looking for a clean, quiet, capsule hotel like facility.
Nobody told me that you have to change out your own bedsheet when you leave”
I was in utter disbelief when I repeated this particular policy from the owner thinking I read/heard it wrong. If I had known I wouldn't have booked it. Besides good location, everything else was average of not sub par. Because before and after kobe, I had stayed in far better capsule hostels, paying just about the same yet with better (full) amenities like pyjamas and Bath towel. I am giving the cleanliness a bit low because I had a bit of itch when I lay on the bed. And the inside of the side locker looked dirty.
Hi -- I stayed here for a number of days and the owner was incredibly hospitable as I checked in pretty late and asked for a lot of recommendations in the area. Everyone you meet is quite nice there, I would recommend anyone to stay in this stylish convenient hostel!
If you enjoy meeting new buddies in the trip, you should come here. The boss kotsu san is a very nice guy. He is willing to give sueggestions to you trip even if you have no idea about what you actually want in Kobe. He is talkative and willing to spend time on sharing his experiences in his 6-years travel. Don’t worry, he speaks english well. I stayed here for 2 nights and I had great chitchats with Kotsu San and other guests. The location of the hostel is also great. It takes you 5-10mins to Kobe tower and habour views. The price is reasonable. In short, do checkout this wonderful hostel if you enjoy the connection among each other. Btw please tell Kotsu not to drink to much.
Great hostel made by a backpacker”
The owner had traveled around the world for 6 years before creating his own hostel and he did it right. Clean, nice showers, locker in the bed area with power inside the locker as well as out, good community area. Overall couldn't have asked for any better. He helped us decide on what to do around town, spoke great English and even cooked us dinner 1 night. Good location, quiet, all around, no complaints. I've been in Japan for 3 months now and this place is at the top of the list for great hostels.
New hostel in Kobe; so everything is new. I guess not many people stop over in Kobe so I was pretty much the only one staying on my floor whilst there. Shame really as this is a cute little hostel and has an elevator! Kaz the owner is very friendly, good English and keen to give advice on where to go in Kobe. All the best Kaz with your business!!
Despite the staff everything was really good”
As mentioned in the title, We just feel no need to be preached at the front desk after a long tiring day, we provide everything they asked but they're questioning our ID as they never seen that such of thing, while its pretty common in Japan especially tourist area.
When I stayed, it appeared that I was either the only guest or 2-3 other guests where there but slept in different rooms from me. The hostel is a block from the Minatomotomachi, you can take the train from Shin-Kobe using the Seishin-Yamate line (it is underground). Very easy to travel there if you take the Shinkansen because you don't leave the station. The hostel is very quiet, clean, has an elevator, the owner is outstanding - provided tons of recommendations, knows a lot about the area and places to see, I'm very thankful for his help. The property is near the Kobe Harbor and lots of shopping and authentic Kobe beef restaurants. Kobe is a quieter option to Tokyo and Osaka but there is a lot to see and do here and the property is unique located to experience a lot during your visit. I highly recommend it.
The owner was very nice and informative. The stay was great, I highly recommend it. If you need to be frugal, theirs a full kitchen you can cook in. Overall a great value.
Location is good, bed is comfort. Just a little not good was t they don't helps us to keep luggage after you check out.
Close to shops and restaurant. Very clean and tidy. Will definitely come back if ever go to Kobe.
Very convenient location”
Nice clean space with individual lockers. Near Motomachi station if using JR pass otherwise subway and Hankyu train station also nearby
Recommended because of 1. great location 2. beautiful interior, and 3. cleanliness But note that 1. it's a bit hard to find because of the small sign on the groud floor (it's on 3rd floor). And 2. You CANNOT store your luggage in the hostel after checking out. It's a bit inconvenient.
Kazuo San is very friendly”
Hostel is a little bit confusing to find but i arrived okay, after that everything gets easier since it is easy to memorize. near the station. Kazuo san is very responsive and helped me a lot on my itinerary. He briefed me before i took off from the hostel. kobe is a great place. hostel is nice and clean, everything is perfect and comfortable. i like the bed and quiet dorm room. recommended!
Kazu. Thank you so much!”
Kazu is a very friendly and helpful host. Although I only stayed in Kobe for one night, he helped plan my visit in Kobe. It’s sad that I did not visit all your recommendations because of the bad weather, Kazu. Besides, location is great. The place is clean. (Thanks to Kazu’s hard work) I would centainly visit again if I come to Kobe.
Thank you, Kazu!”
I stayed at the Hostel Anchorage for two nights and the experience was fantastic! As I took a night bus to Kobe, I arrived at the hostel way ealier than the check-in time. Considering my condition, the staff there was so kind to offer me every help I needed and later on even helped repair my broken boots. Simply for this reason, I can give the Hostel five stars, not to mention the great location, clean environment and comfortable accommodation. Everything combined altogether made my stay at the Hostel Anchorage has become an unforgettable travelling experience for me. I definitely will stay at the same hostel again whenever I visit Kobe. Highly recommend it!!!
Thank you for staying at my hostel. I really happy to get your review. I always think that I will do the best to make guests comfortable and happy. I look forward to seeing you again. yours sincerely Kazu
Clean & tidy hostel. Few minutes walk to nearest railway station. Host is very friendly and he gave me a very good suggestion for having Kobe beef
위치적으로 아주 좋은 곳입니다”
지하철역에서 5~7분거리이고 뒤에는 시장거리가 있어서 쇼핑과 먹거리들이 아주 많습니다.. 또한 차이나 타운이 있어 볼거리 괜찮습니다... 이곳에 머물면서 거짐 모든 랜드마크들은 걸어서 다녀왔습니다..
Ok hostel ”
The room is small but clean. Location is very good. Shower for men was on another floor, so really not convenient. Unfortunately the host/owner was really rude as he got upset because we were 10 min late for check out (and the hostel was empty). Also he asked us to leave the building as soon as we checked out and would not let us finish our coffee in the main room. I would not go back there.
Location: okay, near Metro station and Motomachi Price: fairly expensive Facilities: basic (fridge, microwave oven, oven, water heater a/v in common area) Environment: clean & comfortable
