Stayed 2 nights in Hida Takayama Guesthouse Tomaru, Shingo-san was very considerate! I was arriving late, just after midnight and the only light that shone from the street was from Hida Takayama Tomaru. Facilities were clean and good. Another staff was Stanley, who was a great help in providing me with information and directions. Also great to chat too :) Enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it.
Shingo-san and his family were very helpful with ideas on what to do and how to find places. They are so friendly! They know all the places for vegetarians to eat. Very close to the bus station/train station and an easy walk to the old town.
The location was great and the owner was very helpful. The only criticism I can give is that it was very noisy outside of our room very early due to the shared bathroom sinks in the hall. This made sleeping in very difficult.
Walk into this hostel and become part of a family. Run by a friendly, travel enthusiast couple with an adorable son, this place has all the comfort and facilities that you may ever need and much more: a cozy, laid-back atmosphere and an amazing friendliness. You can ask anything about sightseeing around, hiking in the mountains or find the best onsens, you'll get all the information and help you need, even when it comes to planning your onward journey. In all, this place is just perfect.
Very intimate and small. Shingo is a great hostel owner and host and took good care of us. Keep in mind that this isn't a party hostel and not the best place to meet backpackers, nevertheless it is clean, aesthetic and pleasant. By the way Haru (owners son) is adorable!!
A really nice stay in a cosy guest house! I felt at home.
