Marie from United States

Dormitory
Stayed 2 nights in August 2014
Small, bare-bones place; Great location”
1) close to subway and downtown area 2) easy to meet other people at hostel
The stay was fine. Just don't expect much. First impression is a shabby little house at the end of a tiny road near some love motels. Unimpressive. But, you're not paying much and what you are paying for is the good location. The beds were fine. The room was totally cramped, but it's not a place where you hang out really...just a place to sleep. The kitchen isn't something you should count on using (it's tiny and the one little stove-top heater thing is cracked. But you can boil water and make late night ramen if you want! Best thing about this place was that I met a few other people to talk to. Oh, also there aren't many outlets in the rooms, just fyi.

Good location but small rooms”
Cozy home away from home
It was a new experience staying in a dorm as a family with another family which was totally unexpected. The move from one dorm to another dorm in a different house was disrupting. The plus point was each night when we returned the house was warm and cozy. A rude shock greeted us when we returned after 2 nights away.

Cosy”
Just like a house
Even though it was surrounded by love motel, it was like staying in a house. But was a little hard to find as it was located on a second floor. I only discovered it because I heard someone talking and I looked up and realised that is the hostel. They gave out a room which I guess was supposedly my room. But they ended up giving me an even bigger room. So I was glad.

いろいろな国の人と友達になれました”
いろいろな国の人が泊まりに来ており、その人たちと会話をすることで良い刺激になりました!
ゲストハウスはリビングなどは共同利用なので、海外から来ていた他の宿泊者とコミュニケーションをとることができ、友達も増えて、とても良い刺激になりました。オーナーの方も優しい方ばかりでした。チェックアウト後も荷物を預かってくれたり、リビングで帰りまでの空き時間を潰すこともでき、さらにはシャワーまでも使わせてくれました。また、門限がなく出入りも自由なので、夜遊びすることもできます(笑) "宿泊者はみんな家族"というようなあたたかい雰囲気のゲストハウスでした。

フィリピン人のスタッフはいつも笑顔でよかった”
新村駅から近いのが便利
社長のアジョシもとても親切でした。 部屋に蚊が3匹もいて夜中に私だけ刺されましたが、次の日にアジョシに言ったら蚊取り線香をつけてくれました。おかげで捕まえることができ、その日はぐっすり眠ることができました。 近くにドラム缶のテーブルで立って食べるカルビ屋があるので、ぜひ食べてみてください。
