This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I really liked this place. The dorm was pretty basic but clean, the kitchen was very well stocked with equipment and communal oil, salt etc. they were very helpful and kind. I didn't mind the location, but as they say on the web it's about a 20minute walk from the JR station. Thank you for a great stay!
