Achtung: das Hostel befindet sich im 18. Stockwerk. Der Lift wird von 23.00 Uhr bis 06.00 Uhr ausgeschaltet, während dieser Zeit kommt man weder rein noch raus. Das ist kein Problem, wenn man den Abend gerne im Hostel verbringen und die schöne Aussicht geniessen will. Aber sehr schlecht, wenn man abends ausgehen möchte oder frühmorgens zum Flughafen muss...! Ansonsten ist alles tiptop und das Personal super hilfsbereit!

Das Hostel befindet sich direkt über dem Iidabashi Bahnhof. Es war ein bisschen schwer zu finden, da es nicht großartig ausgeschildert ist. Es befindet sich direkt in einem Hochhaus ist und es gibt mehrere Eingänge is das Gebäude. Die einfachste Art ist von der Brücke her in die kleine überdachte Einkaufspassage zu gehen. Dann geht man durch eine Glasschiebetür gegenüber von Baskins-Robbins und nimmt den Aufzug.
