Stayed in a mixed dorm, and it was very cold and humid. Had to sleep with my sweater on and my clothes smelled like mold the next day... Also being close to the train station, the trains will make some noise passing by. Was not a big problem at night. I'm a light sleeper, and wasn't bothered.
The people working there should wait to start cleaning to after check out. I left around 8.30 a.m., and already they'd begun removing futons and doing laundry. Made me feel in the way, and like I had to hurry to get out of there.
I think the place is a bit to pricey for what they offer, I've stayed in better places for a lower cost during my time in Japan.
Brian the owner is a really nice guy! The place feels like you're staying in someones home, I felt very welcomed when I checked in. The place is right next to the river, and it was nice going to sleep to the sound of the river.
Good location not to far from the train station.
