Yokohama Hostel Village(YHV) has organised projects to re-generate the local economy of the area, attracting more young people such as tourists and backpackers to the hostel
by renovating old hostel rooms and improving the image of the Kotobuki district.
The hostel used to be a day-labourers dormitory town and had become a backward area
after the economic recession in the nineties.
Our project aims to transform the Kotobuki district from being dependent on social insurance
into a productive district that can even contribute economically.
Through our hostel visitors we intend to communicate our policy and projects for the revitalization of the Kotobuki district to people all over the world.

Explanation of Plan for two people
The room is just the right amount of space for one.( 1 or 2 people can stay in a room.
With a surprisingly circumscribed and snug space, are you prepared to stay over with your counterpart?! This is the duo challenger plan!
The room is just the right amount of space for one. Two can stay, but it really is a small room... Up until now numerous friends, couples, families, and others have had fun, been surprised, and angered while they challenged themselves to stay at this room. Some even deepened their bonds through their experience! Yokohama Hostel Village (YHV) challenges you to our surprisingly small room! Achieve such a task and be certified a challenger as well as a great memory to look back on!
Welcome challengers, why don�t you try yourselves to our amazingly small room!
- To sleep together in the room. (Withstand your partner snoring! In fact, there is no escape from it in such space! There isn�t even enough space to place your baggage! We�ll safekeep it at the front desk!)
- Be surprised at the confines, and not grumble. Just laugh!
- To share and note your experiences to the next challengers!
- To take pictures of yourselves, and upload it at your blogs and homepages!
- To spread word of how indeed the room was small at our homepage forum! (Don�t be a sore loser!)
For those that have safely completed their challenge, along with certification, you will have gone through a valuable and personal experience to the extent of how small a Japanese room can be.
Now, what are you waiting for? Why not challenge it yourself?
Friends, couples, families�
Have had fun, been surprised, noted the limited space, and enjoyed their stay.
Indeed, many reactions have been observed.
Regardless, we congratulate such customers!
Even as of now, we have several challengers.
We see how they walk out to the neighboring Chinatown with smiles on their faces.
We wonder whether it is really that fun.
We note how it seems that people get closer to each other as the day goes by.
We concluded how it must be because that the small confine of the room that encourages bonding, whether it be through more communication and interaction.
So, we wait for more brave challengers to make their reservation to Yokohama Hostel Village (YHV)!

Exit from the North (Chinatown/Chukagai) Exit. After passing through the ticket gates, turn right. Once outside the station, turn right again. If you see a MacDonald's then you have gone the wrong way. Walk about half a block, past the taxi line, and turn left underneath the overpass. Walk straight down this street. You will pass the 'Silk Road' Pachinko Parlor and a Lawson's convenience store. Cross the large street and walk about two more blocks. The front office of the Yokohama Hostel Village will be on your right, past a storefront with a blue awning.
