Amazing Experience”

This Hostel is an amazing deal and the people that work there are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgable about the area. I would Highly recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Nagano. Also, the sleeping arrangements are quite comfortable and the actual hostel is a very quaint traditional building, which only adds to the overall charm. Will definitely stay again if I return to Nagano (which I probably will, even if only to get more Soba).

Awesome experience as solo traveller!!!”

Location is a bit of a walk from Nagano station but of course bus or bike is always an option. Despite of that the hostel is super near Zenkoji temple. Had multiple walks through the temple which was great. Host and the staff are super friendly and helpful. They gave many advises and also stayed up to chat with the travellers (oops sorry, we were super happy so couldn't sleep). Went to Togakushi for a day (highly recommend to walk through the long route to the furthest pond and also the ninja maze was superb!!!! Met many like minded travellers there..the room is both super cozy and lively. Drinks available at the bar so we all gathered at the lounge sometimes for dinner and chat session.. House was old but very well maintained and has a really nice traditional feel to it. Highly recommend to all solo travellers or couples (private rooms available) as well as family (this too!!!).

I enjoyed my time at the DOT Nagano hostel immensely. The owner Nao is really cool and helpful and the staff were all super awesome people. It's located a three minute walk from the Zenkoji temple and very easy to get to by bus from the station if you don't wanna take the 20 min walk. It's a small and social place.

Lovely place ”

It is a bit of walking from the Nagano station to this guesthouse, about 20+ min depending on your speed, I remember that’s about thee amount of time it took, but its very close to the famous temple and the streets nearby. It’s a very cozy place and I really like both the dorm room and the ‘living room’, both are spacious and has a very cozy feeling to it. There are six big beds in my dorm room which i think is a good number, and i feel comfortable in my bunk. Staff are friendly and helpful too.

Okay”

It is 20mins walk or 10mins by tram from Nagano station, the tram is totally a pain to take as there's only stairs to go up and down, and I was with my snowboard bag and suitcase, trust me it was a terrible experience. But the owner told me to take the bus the next day when I check out, it saved my life totally!!! The place is small and in a quiet neighborhood, the room was ok but there should be more hangers, there is only 1 sink, 1 toilet and 1 bathroom in the whole hostel, ready to wait for bit, no oil no sauce and spices in the shared kitchen, it's equipped but you cant really cook. I would recommend staying in somewhere closer to the Nagano station, it is more less the same price and slightly better equipped..

An old house transformated in a youth hostel, it's great ! 2 minutes from the main temple and the main street with buses to the train station. The owner is very nice and will help you with whatever you need. We also met a lot of nice people over dinner (the kitchen is well furnished). The room is clean but you should bring earplug because the isolation isn't very strong. We spent 2 nights there and we loved it, we really recommend this place !

Good”

The staff was very helpful and unlike other hostels, were flexible with my check-in time due to a slightly late arrival after their closing time. The wooden floors creak, so you have to be mindful when walking to not make so much noise. The downside is, there's only 1 bathroom and 1 toilet; so it gets challenging if you really need to use the toilet and there's someone inside, so bear that in mind. Other than that, everything was good, they even provide 2 slices of toast for breakfast.

Nice people but no sleep”

It’s cheap and you get what you pay for. Since the rooms are actually open at the ceiling you can hear even the snoring of the people two rooms away. Ear plugs help, but you can also feel every movement since it’s an old Japanese house. The whole place feels like it’s falling apart. Only one toilet and shower for the whole hostel is definitely not enough. The atmosphere was nice, but I’m paying for a place to sleep and that’s what I didn’t get at this place: sleep.
