    Best staff ever”

    It was heavy rain outside when I arrived in Kobe. I planned to leave in the morning next day but all of the railway was cancelled. So the staff asked me to stay one more night for safety, and helped me asking another hostel which I planned to stay if it could cancel due to the heavy rain. Even though this hostel is not new and big as hotel, but felt so warm at the helpless moment! Thanks a lot.

    Location are not bad since there is many food and convenient store around. It is a town area.”

    But in Kobe if you are going to travel around. The metro station is a must to take around 10mins walk from the guesthouse. The house is very clean and don't worry if you bring your big luggage, there will be a locker or chain for you to lock it for safety.

    Convenient location, quiet, clean

    Very nice hostel. Located close to the main terminal of Kobe, while the neighborhood is very quiet. I stayed in a single room, where the space was very limited but still very comfortable. Nice common area facilities and foreign language support. I give my full recommendation.

    Location, staff, cleanliness

    The few minutes' walk from JR Sannomiya station was not boring at all! On the contrary, the road leading to the Hostel is a busy one, with many interesting shops and good eateries (I tried Yoshibei at Toshi-san's recommendation and the katsu-don was AMAZING!!). The rest of Sannomiya, Nankinmachi and Motomachi are within walking distance, and there are many food choices and shopping arcades that will make your legs go weak. Many detailed maps are also provided along with other guides and coupons. Love this place!

    I Love R2 Hostel”

    R2 Hostel is so so so great. If we talk about location, it is one of the best. It located near train station that provide ease to travelers to discover Kobe. The room is clean and comfortable. Amenities are top notch. The communication with staffs is easy. We can understand each other very well although I do not speak Japanese. The atmosphere is cozy. The staffs are all kind and talkative.

    The location is closed to the area. The staff is friendly - he told me I have left my gloves behind after I returned from a local hot spring bath nearby, which is also posted by them on their notice board. He communicated with smooth English.

    My wife and I stayed at Kobe Sun Nami Miyarra 2 Hotel for 1 night. The toilet was only 2 rooms per floor and it was divided one for women and one for men. There are only 2 washbasins and only 2 showers and also on the ground floor. It takes a long time to shower.

    Cleanliness, home feel

    i tried both capsule and female dorm. capsule is really nice as you has own privacy, also have own locker outside do u can put all your luggage. BUT, if dorm really not too good, no locker so you need to put all luggage on you bed and the bed only cover buy curtain so will be noisy for others, and those luggage is on bed so its difficult and noisy when doing packing. if you are good luck to stay capsule, then so not have this issue, as you can do packing at the locker area. Kitchen and shower area all are clean and on self management so with good privacy.

    Convenient, clean and fully equipped

    The hostel is nice, though there are 15 people living in a room. Living in the capsule provides a private area for backpackers. If I need to point out a disadvantage, I'd say there's only 2 showers, need to wait in line.

    Close to Sannomiya Station, Relatively Affordable

    The hostel occupies a house quite near to both the JR and Hankyu Sannomiya Stations. The reception is not 24 hour. We arrived fairly early in the morning and there wasn't directions as to what to do. As it is a private house-type building, there are no lifts if you are carrying heavy luggage or staying there with an elderly. Our twin room occupies the top floor and there are ample shower and toilet facilities. Wifi is spotty in our room and only works better at the common lounge downstairs. The best thing about the hostel is its location. It is possible to walk to the Kitano and Shin-Kobe station from the hostel itself. If you plan to take the public transport to get around Kobe, Sannomiya Stations by JR and Hankyu are pretty close.

    Food

    It actually was quite a walk from Sannomiya Station. It's ok if you only have hand luggage but with big suitcases might need to get a cab. The main street leading to it has many many food options tho, especially the Takoyaki shop at the beginning of that street. The hostel itself is alright, the bed was a bit dusty but not that uncomfortable. The shower and toilets were clean.

    Convenient location, friendly staff, clean.

    The facilities are all the basic you need as a traveler (a place to sleep, shower and use the toilet), there is also a kitchen on the first floor. The capsules and common spaces are clean and there are many cute signs with information and idications in different places, that combined with the fact that it's not a big place creates a cozy environment. It's close to the Sannomiya station, making it a good place from where you can travel to different destinations.

    Cozy and warm guest house!”

    Location, friendly staff and cleanliness

    We were originally supposed to stay for three nights but decided to extend our stay for four nights and we had no problems talking with the staff! Late check-in are handled with no problems (we arrived around 11:00 PM). Room was very spacious for being a guest house. Even though we were just two we booked a three people private room. Staff was very friendly and though most of them can understand English. This is my third guest house and all I can say is that it's great to be there! Being in a hotel you never get the chance to talk and meet so many people from different countries but here since we are a small group and we all gather in the living room or sleep together, was very easy to make friends. It is very good communicated, five minutes walking away from the Sannomiya station and there's a bunch of restaurants at three or four minutes from the guest house. They also provide some manga, books, magazines, free ice tea and some other useful flyers and information for backpackers! My only complain is that the Wi-Fi just sucks, it will only work properly during hours where people don't use it at all (early morning and late night), besides that everything was great! If I come back to Kobe, I will definitely stay in that guest house again!
