This guesthouse has all the charms of an old house, no worries about the house being too cold in late June, but there is AC if need be. Sleeping on a futon was great fun and one of the best sleeps I had during my trip. Location-wise, slightly tucked away but easy enough to find with google maps. I was only there for one night so didn't use many of the facilities, but the owners were lovely and spoke good English.

Very welcoming, friendly and cozy hostel. The staff were kind and engaging, and the rooms were simple but had everything I needed. The outside sitting area was peaceful and relaxing. Thanks for having me!

Very friendly owner - gave us detailed recommendations and a map for places to go. Two suggested restaurants were excellent fun. Had a fantastic time in Himeji. Hostel easy to find and walking distance to the castle. Decent value for money. Hostel is 'arty' with lots of interesting decorations and atmosphere. Building is very old though so quite basic.

If this hostel were anywhere other than Japan, where it's extremely safe, I'd rate the security lower. The lock on the door is more of a nod to safety, but the door is basically plywood so a good j*rk would wrench it open. Also, the owner has a couple locations, so rather than in the place the photos portray you may be across the street in a less nice building. That said, the proprietor is very helpful and informative, and the location is wonderful. You can see Himeji castle from just outside
