Good value for money, great bedrooms Jul 18, 2009
Located very close to the train station and many attractions, this is in the perfect spot. The staff and friendly and the bedrooms are very good quality.

The dorm room is on a bunk bed basis, and each bed is huge. The frame has been hand-built to allow space for next to the mattress for all of your belongings, a lamp and so on. Each bed has a curtain for privacy, which was the first time I had come across this (such a simple idea, but clearly overlooked!).

The beds are comfortable and the down duvets are warm and cosy. The room is air conditioned and cleaned every morning at around 9am (whether you are asleep or not). The bathrooms are clean, have free shampoo and body wash dispensers and are located on the ground floor.

The kitchen is poorly equipped and looks a bit grubby. There are two dining areas. One in the kitchen, and a small dining area in a basement under the kitchen which has no windows, dim lighting, and had clearly just been redecorated as it smelled of fresh paint (over powering). There is a DVD room which is small and cosy, and a lounge area for people to hang out and meet other travellers.

Coming from Hakuba where we had stayed in the best hostel ever, this seemed a bit bland in comparison, but I think if we had gone there a different time we would have enjoyed it more. The bedrooms were by far the most impressive part of the hostel.

Terrific J-Hoppers Takayama Oct 01, 2009
J-Hoppers Takayama is fantastic. Centrally located, brand new (opened May 2009), clean, spacious, helpful staff, you name it. Modern facilities and free WiFi for those traveling with a computer (pay for internet if use their computers).

Have met an assortment of lovely travelers staying at J-Hoppers, and all have good things to say.

Very good value. Excellent location. Highly recommended if staying in Takayama.
Biggest, fluffiest duvets you can …
