This is where the cool old people go as well as the backpackers. Seriously. It's cheap, has a fun vibe and you have access to great kitchens to do your own food.

Best thing about YHA is that it is close to Central Station. For the price paid I expected better. Double and trundle bed in the room - we needed two separate sleeping areas. Bed reasonably comfortable. No glasses or cutlery in the room. Hanging area was a frame. Bathroom was reasonable. Room was small. There are better options with comparable price close by.
