Thank you to all the staff who were extremely helpful in providing information about the local area and also helping us plan our next stop in Japan. We would love to come back to Ito and will definitely recommend your hostel to other travelers we meet.
Very authentic, comfortable, and serene. Possibly the best hostel accomodation your going to find in Japan.
Absolutely fantastic. They did a great job at renovating this historical building, which hosts a larger onsen, as well as small private onsen. The staff is friendly and helpful. I'd say it's worth going to Ito just for this ryokan.
We had a wonderful overnight stay! I was shocked when we walked up to the front door and confirmed that it was, in fact, K's House-- the old-fashioned woodwork and architectural details were such that I'd never before seen at a hostel! Talk about an incredible value!!! The onsen was smaller than I expected, just one bath to fit no more than ten, but my friend and I went late enough in the evening that we had it to ourselves. There are also private baths available on each floor.
Super clean and organised accommodation. The staff had lots of patience answering our (sometimes repetitive) questions, mainly about local jellyfish. We stayed in a private room which was very spacious and the kitchen area downstairs is very well equipped. Make sure to use the onsen!
Loved every minute, a magical place in a great location. Thank you!!

Loved staying here. It was the end of six weeks away and the perfect end to the holiday.
Amazing hostel, best I've ever experienced, the Onsen's and private Onsen's are a must. Location is great. Staff great. Everything is just great, and the atmosphere there is amazing! Highly highly recommend! You'll love it! 100%
great place to stay, exceptionaly nice and helpful staff, 24/7 onsen is great asset too, I would recomend it as budget friendly experience in ryokan stay
Amazing hostel, the best of my trip in Japan, and at the same price as the others. The house itself is a must see, as it is truly Japanese traditional. The onsen baths are priceless. Perfect to relax at a very fair price.
Awesome hostel, awesome onsen, really nice location, best money value i had in japan.
I loved the location by the stream, the room, the antiqueness of the hostel, the common areas and kitchen. I LOVED the bath. It was a really great place to go on my first night in Japan.
A wonderful place with a great history. The staff is very friendly and the facilities are superb - there is a private onsen in every floor, and of course the public bath. Loved it and I wish I could stay longer.
If there is a nicer hostel in the world I would be very surprised. I wanted to stay there for much longer, it's so peaceful and the building is stunningly beautiful. I love this place.
Lovely place... wish we had more time to stay there and enjoy the facility!
Very nice. Beautiful river. Only downside: no air conditioning in rooms.

The value for money here is beyond words. Amazingly beautiful traditional building. Facilities - everything you could think of needing is cared for. The common room fantastic and spacious. Loved the onsen (public and private). River views with balcony in dorm room!! Staff had impeccable food recommendations and were v. friendly! Thank you for letting me participate in the tub race on the 7 July, so much fun and one of my most memorable experiences in Japan! I will be back!!!
