Hotel Toyo is an affordable and friendly place to stay that functions somewhere between a hostel and a hotel. Guest rooms are private and minimal; each has tatami flooring, convertible futon beds, and not much else. The lobby and common area feel like a backpacker’s retreat with welcoming communal spaces and lots of vibrant murals decorating the walls. An arcade, rooftop terrace, and coin laundry are all on site. The staff at Toyo is multilingual, and the hotel is only a short walking distance from the nearest transit station.
