Nice place for no frills room and with a budget. Only downside is that there are no fridges or a microwave in the rooms so you can't keep drinks or food in your room. Also I don't know if it's with some rooms but first week we didn't have any tables in our rooms to put stuff like laptops on, but on a second stay we had tables. Nice that we get free breakfast of toast and soup in the hotel's cafe, but if you do want a bit more you can order from the kitchen and the prices are very cheap. They also have a big beer selection from around the world. Big plus I always enjoy from this group is that I can leave my luggage in their storage room free of charge if you plan to split your stay. That way you don't have to lug your luggage all over Japan.

Just enough for travelers who are on a budget. Best for small groups. Location was really good in terms of buying affordable goods and foods. But location to JR will take you 15mins walk as the road to station is uphill, while going to Subway (Nippori Station.) was just at 10-12mins walk in a flat road. Great service from Daisuke and his staff. They speak and understand English well. Rooms tho are a bit small especially for week-long traveling tourists. But the room is bigger than Apa Hotel (a budget travel hotel in Japan).
