you need improve the installations, specially the bath zone and take the bussiness more seriously
Had a short stay but the place is pretty nice. Well located and has a real atmosphere. The staff was really friendly and always eager to help you (even the neighbours !). Too bad there was also a circus troop staying that night, pretty noisy but it was still worth the price. Would come again if i come back to Himeji.
If you havent yet stayed in a real japanese house, this is the place to do it. Its basically a "ryokan" but without the service and indoor onsen...and therefore for a good price. A little Japanese style courtyard out back with a little roofed-over patio...great place to chill at night. The living room boasts a great atmosphere since the owner and staff are always around to chat with the guests. The owner even took us out on a small road trip to catch a night view of the city. Plus great wifi.
This is the place for the real Japanese overnight experience. The staff is nice and the atmosphere really traditional. The place is however really old and small, and therefore not particularly clean. The location is a bit far from the station, and some directions here on the webpage would have been really helpful.
Nice hostel for one night although rooms were a little small (especially the girls dorm).
