This hostel is a bit bare bones in that you have to go outside to use the washroom and the walls are thin- however -we were still very comfortable cause there were heaters in every room and we always appreciate free tea! The owner did a great job of showing us how to get around and his recommended sights. I would definitely stay here again.

Very close to castle and tradition but it was not vale for money. Showers are outside and no sink to brush your teeth unless you use makeshift kitchen which Is awkward. Extremely cold too but very nice staff. It's very traditional but not vale for money

A bit far from the JR Station, but it's right next to the Castle ! The neighborhood is very calm. I would recommend this place only when the temperature outside is above 15°C. Since it's a typical ancient Japanese house, there is absolutely no isolation, and heating is done with kerosene stoves (these are pretty common in Japanese houses, nothing exceptional). The toilets are not very well positioned and there is no bathroom sink (I used the kitchen sink). Very authentic house !

This hostel definitely has an interesting athmosphere. It is elaborately decorated and located in a Japanese-style house in a small alley. Unfortunately, it can get really cold in there. (One of the fan heaters smelled like gasoline, so we didn't dare to use it...) Also, after finding some hairs on our pillows, we are quite sure that they don't wash the linen after every single guest. Unfortunately, our sink was located outdoors. But generally, our stay was a nice experience!

We had a wonderful stopover night at the Himeji Guest House Engakudou! This tiny gem was exactly what we were looking for: a quiet night in with a few new and interesting people to meet
