Great location. Easy access to the station and every tourist location (except Ninja Temple- but there is a quick bus to get there). The owner was very helpful. We read in reviews that there were lots of rules, but they are standard hostel rules about respecting the space and other guests. Overall a nice place.


Great location (5 minute walk from JR Kanazawa Station), cozy, very well kept and clean place. Owner is very helpful and speaks good English.


The best place to stay and the Host was the best he helped us with everything Thank you very much for your hospitality

Very nice little place, owner was very friendly and gave a lot of advice on getting around, what to see, where to eat etc.


I stayed at Namaste for one night and felt at home straight away upon arriving. The host is very nice and friendly and he will give you a brief tour/explanation of the property. The guesthouse pursues an environmentally friendly attitude with clear energy saving instructions et cetera. Namaste is situated 10 minutes of walking distance from Kanazawa Station and gives direct access to all the sightseeing areas of Kanazawa. Do not forget to take a day trip to Chirakawa-go when you stay here!

Namaste is a fantastic guesthose in a traditional japasene house. Was the only hostel that I've visited in japan with japanese style beds. My stay there was amazing and memorable, Makoto is a great host. The hostel is clean, secure and you can walk to all interesting spots in kanazawa. I seriously recommend this hostel.


Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location 10 min away from the train & bus station.


Great hostel. Very clean, the owner is very nice and the house has a great "homy" feel.


It was a great stay!

It's a clean and tidy guest house. Staff is friendly and know the city well. Thanks for the good recommendation.


Close to the station. Good places to eat near by. Not very close to major site seeing attractions. Place is very clean. Owner helpfull. Need better directions on how to get there from station for the first time.


Great place. Owner was very kind and helpful and had great recommendations on places to eat and such. No complaints from me!


It's a really nice place, a Japanese traditional house where you sleep in a traditional Japanese bed on the floor (though it's comfortable enough), has cooking facilities in a nice kitchen. Close to the train station and not that far from everywhere. The guy who ran the place was really helpful too.
