Cool Staff, Good Location, Comfortable Room”
The receptionist was very kind enough to let me check in earlier and check out late. Staffs speak English very well. They are very friendly and always greet me with a smile. I had lunch in their cafe before I check out and it was delicious. The room is clean and the bed is very comfortable. The toilet is wide and very clean. The hostel is close to Nagoya Station, about 10 minutes walk. It is also easy to locate. I will definitely recommend Glocal Nagoya Backpackers Hostel. I will come back in this hostel.
The best of best”
Actually it was my first visit nagoya. Just i wanted take a rest from my daily life, so i choosed this city because it was most cheapest flight ticket at that moment ;) And everything was perfact to me after checked in to this hostel. Its only 5mins by walk from Nagoya stn. Bed and showerroom, Kitchen and all of facility clean and comfortable. They has a cafe at 1F. And i think this place is one of best cafe in whole japan. Every time can make a new friend and all of staff was reslly kindly and lovely. (Especially thks to Ai, Nana, Yoshi, Tomo, and Manager san) Nagoya city was so lovely and made me excited. Food is great. People was very kindly as well. Location also perfact for the traveling 'Kansai' area. I wanna come back to nagoya already.haha I definitely recomendation "Glocal hostel nagoya" for the all of backpackers. I hope see you guys again asap. This is 'Joe' one of small guy who from seoul. ---------------------------------------------------------
If I come back, I'll be coming back for the hosts :D”
I stayed here for two nights during Summer. Loved everything about the hostel, especially the employees working here; they were all friendly and nice so if I come to Nagoya again, I'll be coming back to this hostel to visit them :) Thanks for being so friendly! Otherwise the location was 10 min walk from Nagoya station, around 3 convenient stores all in walking distance from the hostel, very clean due to hardworking employees and overall great value for money. The only thing I found slightly troublesome was that the hallways and shower/toilets were not equipped with aircons (the rooms and common/kitchen area was). I found it uncomfortable but this is probably only the case during summer time. Otherwise Glocal is the place to stay if you're looking for friendly host and buzzy vibe for a cheap price!
Among the many hostels I have stayed during my travels around the world, Glocal has left me the deepest impression! Staffs are experts in food, drinks and service. With the helpful and friendly staffs, the hostel (especially the cafe) is very conducive for interacting with people globally and locals from various parts of Japan. Food is affordable and great in taste! With some minor improvements to the hostel rooms, Glocal can be a perfect hostel for both tourist and locals. Will definitely be back if I visit Nagoya again.
excellent value for money hostel”
arriving at around 11pm after a short, cold walk in 11 degree celcius weather from nagoya (meitetsu) station, we were warmly welcomed by the staff. our host spoke english (one even greeted us in tagalog) and gave us clear instructions for check-in/check-out, recommendations on where we could eat a late dinner, and how to enter and exit the building. facilities, from bedroom to kitchen/common room to bathrooms and toilets were clean and excellent. our only regret is that we only stayed for a few hours. but if i ever find myself in nagoya, i'll be sure to go back to glocal. :) five stars across the board!
Amazing place with amazing people”
I stayed only for one night because my flight arrived late, and I cant move in to my apartment. I had a hard time locating the place because it was night time, and I had no internet connection. I ended up taking a cab from JR Nagoya, which cost me around JPY 660 (pretty cheap). It is literally a few blocks away from where I took the cab; it's just that it's not in the main road. The washroom, though shared, is amazing. Toiletries from shampoo, body soap, down to facial wash, toner, deodorant, mouthwash, sanitary pads, etc. were available. They were branded too (I recognized some to be coming from Muji). I did not see any toothbrush and toothpaste, so it might be best to bring one. The owner went out of his way to ask one of the staff (Saki san) to accompany me in purchasing a data sim card (cannot send SMS). It's a complicated process in Japan, so it took us around one hour. The staff was helpful all throughout translating for me and all. She also did not feel burdened that she had to accompany me. She was really enjoying our small talks. I was not able to eat at the cafe, but a lot of foreigners hang out there. They said the food is great. I will definitely go back to Glocal and try out their cafe during my stay in Nagoya.
Hostel is clean, located around 10 mins by walk away from Nagoya Station. It is far from the prime area, but that's ok. Nagoya station is 10 mins walk away, and there's subway that connects you to everywhere. I chose this hostel mainly due to the fact that it is close to the station, which has direct connection to the airport. What I loved most about this hostel is the bar and the wait staff who were really friendly. I spent 2 nights in the bar eating and drinking with the staff. They speak excellent English too. Beds are bunk beds so might be a bit cramp if you have big suitcases. Toilet/Bathrooms are extremely clean. Side note; no towels are provided (you have to rent it for 100yen).
Good choice for Nagoya!”
Glocal is in a quiet neighbourhood with popular dining options nearby, and easy to get to from Nagoya Station. The attached cafe adds on to the ambience. The Staff and Owner are friendly, and made me feel welcome! Note that rooms are on 2F- 4F with no lift. Female dorm (6 bed) is on 2F. Room is abit tight on space if you have big luggage, but bed is spacious and comfortable, and mini-locker available in room.
Sweet preparation & host, good stay”
The hostel is within 10mins walk from Shinkansen/JR Nagoya station west exit. Easily visible on road with a number of restaurants and convenient stores nearby. Ground floor(1/F) of the hostel is a cafe&bar lounge where the reception is situated at, don't hesitate to go in on check-in. Ichio san, owner of the hostel, is very friendly and speaks English well. The house is white, yet warm and clean. 4 floors in total, in which the 2/F is the female dorm and the kitchen located at 3/F. Please notice that there is NO escalator installed in the building. I stayed only 1 night in the female dorm, still i could see lots of small sweet arrangement such as multiple sockets, hangers at bedside, extra hooks at door back of shower room and the professional hair dryer at different floors. Gonna be back next time here;) Try here unless there is ill princess in the group;)
Super friendly staffs!! 5stars”
Best hostel!! I would highly recommend this hostel, especially to the single traveller coz you will feel absolutely safe to stay here and you also can meet great people here. Also, very great location, 5-10mins far from the main station in Nagoya, easy to access. There are several convenience stores around the hostel, yet they served beer/coffee and foods on the first floor of the hostel. Clean room and shower room. All the staffs are extremely friendly and nice, especially Nana(heart). I travelled from Okinawa to Hokkaido in this trip. I stayed in many hostels and hotels, this hostel is the best!!
Comfy and great ambiance”
Staff is helpful and friendly. Thank you, Yoshi-san! Excellent location and neighbourhood! Nagoya station is just 5 minutes on foot. Lawson is 1 block away. I really like the ambiance of the hostel, especially the bar on the ground floor. Room is clean and everything is just nice. Definitely will stay here again if I visit Nagoya again.
Clean & Good Hostel & Friendly staff ”
Glocal Nagoya Backpackers Hostel is located nearby the Nagoya JR Station; it is about 8-10 mins walking distance to the JR Station. The bunk bed is comfortable & clean. Highly recommend to backpackers or tourist those concern about budget. Also easy access the amenities (restaurants & convenience shops)
I recommend, but it was not very welcoming”
The property is walking distance from the main Nagoya train station, maybe 5-6 blocks once you exit the station. Its on a somewhat main road but the property itself is quiet. The doors to the entrance are misleading and the staff there were rude to me; they were not courteous. The room, bathroom and shower facilities were nice, only three showers and sinks so there was a line in the morning. The beds were clean, warm and comfortable. Other quests were quiet and respectful, so that was a relief. I would recommend it for the stay and location to the Nagoya station, but do not expect much from the staff.
Nice and clean hostel ”
It is a hostel in a easily reach location. Close to Nagoya station and major shopping area. Easy to get around by train to other attraction. Hostel facilities are clean and with privacy. Shower room is very clean. Bed is comfortable. They offered Muji facial soap and tonic water. Thats very nice. Host and staff are friendly. It is a safe area too.
Good place to stay ”
The hostel is near Nagoya station and is easy to find. It is located in a quiet street along the main road. My flight was delayed and I sent them a message to kindly wait for me after the check in time of 11pm and they did! Really appreciated that. The dorm has limited space for luggages. Towel is for a fee. They provide free skincare. The common area/kitchen is cozy. Staff are very friendly and nice. Good enough for a short stay.
Great hostel! ”
Spacious dorm, comfy super clean bed and shower and toilet are on the same level (unlike some of places I've been, where shower located on diff floor). Also, walkable distance from JR Nagoya station is def a plus point as I'm using JR pass. The only thing I dislike about this hostel is they don't have elevator so quite troublesome if you come with luggage. Thank God my level is just 1 level up, cant imagibe if i stay at upper level. Apart from that, everything is great
The location is very close to Nagoya station but you might be confusing which way to go out because there are so many transportaions and gates. However I’m satisfied with the hostel. It is very clean and quiet, i feel so safe! There is each own room key and locker !
Comfy bed and blanket with clean facilities! Room is small though, not much space for big backpack or luggage. Need to walk about 10min from Nagoya Station.
Worth your money ”
The dorm room was adequately sized, clean, and well-heated. The bed was comfy and provided with clean blankets and comforters. The staff are accommodating, friendly, and speaks good English. A bit of a walk from Nagoya Station but is easy to find. The toilets are clean and provided with soap, shampoo, and lotion.
Highly recommend for backpackers”
V.nice hostel! near Nagoya station; with bar on ground floor; nice staff, clear explanation to rules and map. However, if you have heavy luggage, u may need to carry them for 4 floors
