Location: 3-5 min walk from the main bus station and along the main road so it was easy to find. Many cafes and convenience stores nearby. Amenities: Huge hostel so there were many toilet cubicles and shower rooms (they provided shower toiletries too). You can book tours and ask for travel tips from the reception and they are very friendly...

I had a good experience with j-hoppers in Osaka, so when I planned my trip to Takayama, without hesitation I picked j-hoppers again. I booked the girl's dormitory and it was great. The room, toilets, shower room, and kitchen are clean. Last but not least super friendly and helpful staff. 10/10 would recommend this place

The hostel is very near to the train station, around 10mins walk. The hostel is a bit old... but the facilities are very clean so I think overall speaking, it is a good choice in takayama. The staff is extremely helpful and nice. They recommended me with a few suggested restaurant after I check in. Good choice is takayama.

It was a lovely stay, clean and very close to the jr station. It was also a good base for venturing to nearby locations such as hida furukawa and gero. They offer a cheaper bus option to shirakawa-go. The trip to kamikochi is only 1.5hr away from here. I would recommend staying here as staff were also very helpful and...

Takayama is a small town, this hostel is just about 10 mins walk away from JR Takayama Station. We think it is renovated from an old onsen hotel, so the twin room is much bigger than usual hostel rooms. But you still have to share toilets and shower rooms. Staff are nice and helpful, they can also help to book...

Near the station and a few supermarkets. And walking distance to the sights. The curtained beds provided great privacy almost like having your own private space. Kitchen is quite small to accommodate too many guests as a whole group of loud Chinese were there monopolizing the space.
