Beautiful hostel, inside an old wooden villa, everything feels very Japanese! Clean rooms and very welcoming staff. It's not a party hostel but that's in line with the city itself, definitely fits the peaceful context.
I loved this hostel! The house is a completely traditional Japanese building, not a modern cement building remodeled to look somewhat traditional, like some. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Our room had a porch opening onto the garden, really beautiful. And the price and location could not possibly be better. The only downside of an old, traditional building is that there's no air conditioning, but even in hot humid weather, it was OK with the electric fan they supplied.
This is a traditional Japanese Guest House in a building over 100years old. The staff is super friendly.
