0.13km from Shellfish Restaurant MarukeiMy sister and I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights during our stay to Nagoya. The location is amazing. Right off Osu Shopping Street, this hostel is easy to navigate to and has a lot of shopping and dining options right at our door step. The lobby is nice and warm and the staff are very friendly- they walk you up to your room and inform you very well of the procedures that the hostel follows. The room is spacious and there are lamps and desks on each level of the bunk bed. There are ample electrical plugs and the ladder to the top bunk is sturdy. Downsides- complete ban on eating in the room. This is frustrating especially when you just want to bring a small snack home from the convenience stores to snack on before bed (as you can in many many other hostels). You are forced to go downstairs to the lobby to eat, but I didn’t feel like doing that at 10pm. Another downside is the comfort of the bed and pillow. The pillow is way too soft and you can barely feel any support behind your head. The bed ledges are awkward so it makes it difficult to get in and out of your bed especially on the top bunk. Although the room is very spacious (enough for luggage and changing room) the room would benefit from a few more coat hangers to hang towels after showering and a chair for the desk as to get ready in the morning. Furthermore, you have to make your own bed when you arrive which is frustrating especially if you’re tired from carrying luggage around all day which we were. I love the location and feel that although there are definitely cons, this hostel redeems itself through the pros. I’d recommend staying here if you’re young and don’t mind a very hostel-like hostel.
