History

First experience of staying a guesthouse for me was when I traveled abroad. As there were few hostels in Japan at that time, I was thinking that hostels are just cheap but not good accommodations.

However, my image has been changed when I actually stayed hostels. Those certainly were not high quality like hotels though but cozy atmosphere, interaction with staffs and guests relaxed me very much.In addition, thanks to many tips they gave me for having a nice trip, I enjoyed a wonderful journey.

That experience made me thinking to open up a hostel by myself here in Hyogo Prefecture where I was born and grew up.
After few years later, I traveled around the world for one year half for research accommodations.

Seven years have passed since I have started planning to open up a hostel, finally I set up as Galo Hostel Kobe in 2017.

Our hostel is not so big or gorgeous but we are thinking to interact with all guests and help your wonderful travel. We welcome you warmly!
