We like this hotel so much! The room and the beds are great. The staffs are attentive, helpful and friendly. Shared bathroom is clean and large, which made us feel comfortable. It also provides free parking. The location is also great, which is near Lake Kawaguchiko where you can see Mt.Fuji.

Lovely common room and good facilities. Bikes to rent and breakfast available. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful. My sister left some luggage on a bus and the owner spent the day tracking it down and collected it for her whilst we went on a hike. Great location for hiking, cycling and fujiku theme park. Relaxing atmosphere.

We loved our stay here because of the comfort, cleanliness and homely atmosphere; very cooperative staff - he dropped us to the station, we also got to meet nice people. The morning coffee and breakfast with fellow travellers was great.

The location is excellent, far from the city hussle and near one of the few sakura spot on the lake, near the museums and the bus stops (2), free bikes avalaible, walking distance to 7-11 for one of the few ATM in the area. the building offer big windows to satisfy the view to the lake and Mt fuji (could even see the mt Fuji from my bed). the lounge feels extremely homie with a very old-school stylish environment. The owner is a great and kind person who takes time to answer all your questions.

Great location for lake walks or cycling with perfect views of mount fuji. Very friendly staff, everything was provided even bicycles. Drop of for station available for a small fee. The common area and kitchen is used by the owner too, felt a bit strange to put stuff in the fridge. Probably better for couples and groups than single travellers, not ideal for meeting other travellers.

this place was great - the lady who runs this place is amazing - she saved us when the local train wouldn't accept a credit card and our JR pass wasn't accepted. She then checked to find an international ATM. A bonus is the bikes - never thought I would be bike riding in Japan at -2c ..........so much fun ... will definitely be going back for Autumn or the Cherry Blossom season.....can't wait.

Clean - cleaner - DEN's Inn. Comfortable - more comfortable - DEN's Inn. The first time I give a 100% rating to a hostel: Superb cleanliness, excellent common room with very romantic atmosphere, superb location at the lake Kawaguchiko.We were 3 people and had booked 2 rooms.In fact if you book the 2 rooms in the 1st floor, the shared toilet and bathroom is only for you. Owner very helpful and polite: Searched the 3rd bycicle in the heavy snow for us and drove us to the train station for free.

We had a great time in this hostel. Keiko was very kind. She called to make reservations in a local restaurant for us and she even gave us a ride! The hostel is very clean and the service is excellent!

Extremely pleasant stay, with both staff members very kind and forthcoming with help and advice. Both speak impeccable English and are super friendly! The dorm itself is very comfortable, much larger and cleaner than I expected. The common area is very comfortable and having a fully equipped kitchen to use is handy too!

Good hostel for a short stay

Had a wonderful time staying at Den's Inn. Our room as spotlessly clean as were the shared facilities. Our host was helpful, offering ideas on where to eat and what to do. Den's Inn provided bikes and even a ride to the train station when we were pressed for time. Overall a fantastic experience!

Having use of bikes made our stay really fun and easy, and they picked us up right from the train station! How awesome!

Dens inn had a great view of Mt Fuji on the balcony, the staff and owners were the nicest and most helpful people. Very friendly atmosphere, great facilities, the beds were really comfy, great internet signal, showers and toilets were very clean and modern. Also had free bicycles to take out and cycle round lake Kawaguchi right opposite the place and round the town. Also free pick up from the train station by Dens Inn which was very helpful to us. I would recommend Dens Inn to everyone :)

This hostel is fantastic! Very genuine and friendly hosts. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it highly. The free bicycles were a bonus and it was so nice to use them to explore kawaguchiko.

Excelent staff, very clean rooms and toilets. It was quite empty at the time we visited Kawaguchiko, so we had 6-bed room just for ourselves. Very good location, room with a view on Mount Fuji. Two convinience stores nearby.
