Nice place. Very quiet.


This is not an hostel, this is really a paradise. If you plan to stay here please don't stay less than two nights or you will Regret it. The hostel is very close o the JR station and Ito is a wonderful place. The rooms are clean and the hostel's Onsen is an experience that you will miss a lot once you are back home.


Fantastic building with lots of history. Cental location with lovely view over the river. Great onsen!

I have travelled through nearly 50 countries and stayed in more then 100 hostels worldwide. But K's House Ito is probably the BEST hostel experience I have ever had :-)! While ITO is a small town without very interesting sites, this hostel on itself is it THE major destination in Japan to relax for a while away from the big cities. Please stay at least TWO nights: one for amazing yourself with the amazing rooms and atmosphere. A second to really enjoy the building :-).


Easily the best value for a "hostel" that I've ever come across.


Is this place for real? The best price quality ratio of any hostel anywhere in the world (I have stayed at more than 500). I'm not leaving Japan without going back at least once. A real public onsen in the basement, open 24 hours, with flowing water (unlike those which circulate the same 90 percent of those I have seen). A gem (understatement).


Thank you very very much for this unique and pleasant stay at your place!


Fantastic place!!!! All eight of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice ramen house on the corner, and great Soul and Funk bar just on from that. Cheers for the stay folks!


Awesome hostel! Great location, great rooms, great onsen! Couldn't be better :)


This was a brilliant hostel, the staff were so friendly and everything was spotlessly clean. I loved the traditional Japanese vibe it had and the use of the free Onsen was brilliant.


If you are in need for some quite days enjoying and relaxing in the onsen and making walks at the sea side. I bet on it you gone love it..


This was certainly the nicest/ most special hostel that we stayed in. While Ito itself is not too exciting, two night at K's are a good way to wind out while enjoying a very "Japanese" feeling. The dorms are decorated in a traditional tatami style and you will certainly remember your stay. Make sure to enjoy the stay in the onsen, which is included in the price.
