Let me first start out saying that this place was hard to locate from the street. There's a small green sign on the street next to a green bush, so it's easy to miss. This leads down some steps to the guest house. Once you find it, it's a GREAT stay at a great price. The interior is all wood... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. This is by far the best place we stayed in Japan. The owner was lovely and gave us his time to chat and lots of local tips. The place is immaculate and when asked if it was recently renovated was surprised it was 5 years ago. The bedrooms are small, however the beds super comfy!... More

I stayed here with a couple of friends for one night and I have to say that it's probably one of the best guest houses I've ever stayed in. The owner is a wonderfully friendly guy, it's meticulously clean, in a decent location and comes with the sort of attention to detail that many places lack. If I ever find... More

I recently stayed for a week at Kanalian Guesthouse while attending a conference at Pacifico Yokohama (which is about 25 mins walk away or 10 mins by train). The Guesthouse is simply superb. Meticulously tidy and the host, Lee, is welcoming and helpful at all times. I was in a 4-bed dorm which was comfortable and easy to manage with... More

It was a great hostel, rooms were very clean and the owner is very nice and friendly. They have clean bathrooms and kitchen. It is a walkable distance to the Yokohama Station. Just follow the map on the website and you can find the hotel. There are nice restaurants nearby too.

I spent two nights at Kanalian and it was one of the best hostel where I have ever been. Great atmosphere and great value. The owner Mr. Lee is a nice and easy-going guy with a lot of anecdotes about backpacking. The place is very nice, with a great design and even if it has been open for 6 years... More
