J-Hoppers is the brand name of a hostel group in Japan. J-Hoppers hostels are for those who are having Japan-hopping. Yes, you are J-Hoppers, too!
At present, we have hostels in Kyoto, Hiroshima, Osaka, Hida Takayama, Fukuoka and Kumano Kodo Yunomine. If you travel other places, please refer to this page. The number of hostels in Japan are increasing and you may find a good one in other areas, too.
Each hostel is not very big. The capacity is between 30 beds and 50 beds. We believe this scale is the best to keep a friendly atmosphere between staff and guests, and also between guests.
We have some shower rooms which are available 24 hours. However, if you want to hum a tune in the tub, please try a Japanese public bathhouse (=Sento). The reception will advise a good one nearby and how to take it.
No, body soap and shampoo are provided in every shower room.
We have towels to rent.
Most of our dormitory rooms have lockers. The size of each locker is W35cmxD35cmxH45cm, which has room for your laptop computer but not for your backpack.
Yes, please come to the reception. We will tell you the security code for the access.
Don't worry about it. You don't sleep on tatami directly but futon sets are installed in every room. Also, there are instructions on how to sleep on futons. Please have a nice dream.
Why not? Please come and stay with us. Actually, it is one of the happiest things for us to see a foreign guest makes friends with a Japanese guest in our place. Unfortunately, Japanese guests are only about 10% of all J-Hoppers guests. Please stay with us and enjoy cross-cultural talk!
You can cancel your reservation with no fee until 2 days before your check-in date. Please refer to each hostel page for more details.
