Clean. Cozy. Pleasant staff.
My family and I had a lovely stay. The room was very clean and well maintained. We stayed in the family room with shared toilet and but it was not so bad because the T/B was just across our room. We arranged pick up from the station to accommodate our group but I was not sure why there three other people booked so my family did not have enough space in the shuttle. Anyway, they arranged another car to pick up the rest of the group so everything went well in the end. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. I would love to come back again.

Comfy hostel
Nice hostel, friendly staff. The beds are comfy and clean but could do with black out blinds. The location is a bit further out from the centre of town, which is nice if you want a bit of peace and quiet. There is a bus stop nearby at the Oishi park. Glad I stayed here in low season when there weren't too many other guests.

A great base for the Mount Fuji area.
Dot Hostel was great. We stayed for 2 nights when visiting the Mount Fuji area and were very happy with our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were new, very clean and a good size. There was a really handy shuttle that took us to the Kawaguchiko station in the mornings and even picked us up again later in the day. This really helped with cost as the hotel is not in the easiest area to access via public transport. The place was super value for money and we would not hesitate to stay again or recommend this place to others.

This hostel was a great place for us to stay. It's a very new hostel so is in very good condition. We had a private room with a bathroom which was very nice, good facilities. In the evening the hostel had a "Takoyaki Night" where we sat in the communal area and made takayaki's with the staff and other guests. That was great fun. The staff also helped to warm up some Sake that we'd brought and served it up in the proper Sake cups. Great fun. Near to the hostel is the "Natural Living Centre" which is a really nice place to walk around and see some lovely flowers.The lake itself is also very nice and should give a good view of Mount Fuji on a clear day. It was at the last stop on the "Redline" bus that you take from Kawaguchiko Station and about a 3 minute walk from the station. The hostel staff also took us back to the Kawaguchiki station in the morning, which saved us a lot of money! Definitely recommend staying here if you're looking for something a bit lower cost than other hotels in the area. The only issue we had is with the cost of the Red Line bus. The cost from Kawaguchiko Station to the hostel was almost 500 yen per person, for a 30-minute bus ride! If the hostel could provide a more frequent shuttle service that would be awesome!
