This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Tiny rooms with three bunk beds, three above each other, leaving very little room on the floor storing your things. Only two showers and toilets and wash basins for lots of people. Little room to sit, one small room with one round table. Although very cheap, location rather far, 20 minutes walk to Kawaguchi station, from where local train to Ueno. However, friendly management, although not always present. If you don't mind the above, recommended because of the price.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very impressed with the service and quality of the room given the price tag ~16usd. The staff are very helpful. It is hot if you get no AC option but they give you a fan. This has been one of my favorite hostels in Japan.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I had an amazing time! The people were very kind and easy going. It's a very good place to meet new people. The owners take care of you. It's small but very cozy! Every day they try to improve the rooms. For me definitely a place to come back!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This hostel was ok but very small. The room I was in consisted of 4 bed squeeze in a box room with a tiny space to walk past. Also two of the beds were smaller than average size. (I am quite a small female but I struggled for space in this bed.) The staff were friendly and helpful. The bathroom and toilet was clean (though the shower is a cubicle with a curtain in the kitchen.)
Overall stay here is okay if you don't mind small beds!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

JGH was a lovely quiet place to stay with good service and facilities. The rooms are more like capsule rooms, but for the price are very good. Also the location is a little far out of town, but again for the price it is very good. If you are staying longer term JGH would be a good option.

Very good money value. The only thing bothering was thin walls - you can hear every move of other people, including snoring. Small rooms don't bother if you sleep only.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

we decided spontaniously to stay at this hostel. it was our first ever trip to japan and we found it great to have detailed information how to get to the hostel the best way from narita airport and had no trouble finding it. in the end, we liked it so much, due to simple but clean rooms and facilities, the unbeatable low prices and nice safe area nishi kawaguchi, so we prolonged our stay there to two weeks. when booking we were afraid it could be to far outside, but for us it turned out to be even better than staying in the middle of downtown chaos, we could literally go anywhere with JR line as promised and got to know the more outer parts of tokyo, as Ueno etc., which by the way we thought more lovely anyways- if you are worried about not being able to go out at night because of last last train at 12 o' clock - in tokyo you spend the hours till 5 in no time!
thanks also to toschi who was a great help.
