Loved this place! Super cute and the woman running it was incredibly sweet and helpful. My train was delayed because of bad weather and she stayed up until midnight so that I could check in!

I think that Yuko (if I spelled it correctly) is a very shining person which makes you feel incredibly welcome. Maybe some activities done by the hostel are a bit overwhelming but kids and families would love this place I m sure. I stayed only one night but it was a different and funny experience,

I was there a few nights and it is really a wonderful place! Not too far from the station, a lot of social activities, inceribly kind stuff, international visitors and a really neat building. Completely to recommend!

The staff was absolutely wonderful and really made you feel at home in Kanazawa. In addition to great conversations there were activities such as calligraphy to bond with other guests. I absolutely loved the atmosphere and would definitely stay here any time that I am in Kanazawa.

I loved my stay here at Guest House Pongyi, the staff were so kind and inclusive they made my stay in Kanazawa so memorable! A gorgeous traditional guesthouse that has charm and in a great area, close to Kanazawa station and the main centre of town.

Very friendly staff couldn't have been more helpfull, the lady showed me exactly where to go and what to see! The only down sideto was the size of the place (it's tiny so watch your head) and the fact that there's only one shower/toilet. Other than that I'd highly recommend it ! The owner was also suoer friendly so good luck to him!

A beautiful hostel, one of the prettiest I have ever stayed in. An interesting building with cute canal outside. Close to train station and short picturesque walk to town centre. Exceptionally clean and friendly staff.

I cannot recommend this place enough! The hostel itself is in an awesome spot, it's a really cool building, but it's the staff that make this place - they were amazing! We only stayed here for one night but wish we had stayed longer!
