“cleaning-staff wanted”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

The hostel-staff was friendly, and we met some nice people there. The decoration of the guesthouse is awesome. Nevertheless, they really have to work on the hygiene. The bathroom and toilet were dirty and smelled bad. The access to public transport is OK, and you are very close to a shopping street and the Osu-Kannon temple.

The owner and the staffs were not really welcoming. They told the guests to feel free to drink the expired canned drinks in the box on the floor. They never intended to give a hand when I was carrying my 20-kg luggage up their narrow and dim stairs for three flights. The room was so dark that I couldn't even read my guide book to plan for the next day. The bathroom was extremely terrible..dirty and stinks and dark, like it has never been cleaned, and no toilet seat. On top of it, the staff gave me wrong information on buying tickets, which costed me over 4000 yen.
I have had much much better guesthouse experience with even cheaper price. it is definitely my biggest mistake to have stayed here.
