We stayed there for one night and everything was perfect. The host is nice and with great knowledge. My brother and I really enjoyed chatting with her.
A nice place, lovely staff, great location for a stay in himeji. Alhough not hugely traditional and I'd recommend taking your own pillow:)
Excellent location- easy walk from the station and five minutes from the castle and museums. The staff were so friendly, always offering food they had made for themselves. Their English wasn't perfect but they tried so hard to be helpful. Value was also great- I paid for a dorm but as they had a private room available, they gave me that. It was the best night's sleep in a while! Definitely consider this place.
Our stay was great, the owner was very nice and gave us a lot of information. Location is very good as well, surrounded with restaurants, shops and grocery store is right there. I highly recommend it.
I and my Wife had confirmed the booking of a private room two time by email, but when we arrived the owner gave our room to other couple: there they do not follow contracts, they follow what the money says, I thing. To avoid sleep on streets, we had to use a shared room (8 persons). This was ok for me, but a big trouble for my wife. The 'futons' (Japanese beds) was to big for the room. At night, the others roommates must walk over your bed to go use the bathroom. I really do not recommend.
Incredibly friendly staff and atmosphere - would definitely go again
Nice place to spend one night. Location is good for visiting castle and finding food etc. Basic facilities and small seating area for relaxing, a little small when full and not much space for bags in the dorms (especially the girls dorm). Nice enough place though for a short stop.
Really sweet hostess. Wifi worked excellent, nice location. Only thing was the mosquitos in the room and the size of the dorm room. But good for the price
