Pros: Great staff and location!! Very clean and feels like you are staying in a traditional Japanese home. Very social at night with game night and locals eager to practice their English. Great WIfi connection as well. LOVED the rustic decor! Cons: Only one western toilet and one shower. But I never had to wait to use either, even when the hostel was full. No airconditioning. It was rather hot I had my own fan just above the head of my bed that kept me cool.
Three of us stayed in the a private japanese room and it was really comfortable and lovely. Definitley recommend it over the western styled rooms. Clean toilets and showers with fantastic kitchen facilities. We did the overnight sunrise climb on Fuji (definitely do it!!!) and felt great and comforted resting our tired bodies at the hostel after. Pick up service is great and the walk isn't far from the station otherwise.
An excellent hostel for a base to climb / see Fuji. Stayed in 3 K's hostels in Japan and couldn't fault any of them. K's are by far the World's cleanest hostels I've ever stayed in and have travelled all over the World
Great location! Very friendly and helpful staff.
location was nice but inconvinient to get in to town. the place makes up for it with a good atmospere and friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. the beds were very compfortable but there was little space for privacy in the room. one very nice thing i found out is that there are room with the traditional matts on the flor and nice japanese decoration. hope to be able to try it out one day!

This a good hostel with all the facilities you need to have a comfortable stay. The staff were also helpful with planning things to do in the area. The only down side to staying here was that there were very few other solo travellers, so it was difficult to meet people. There were a lot of families, couples, older travellers etc. and not many young people travelling alone. Otherwise a good hostel.
The hostel is not 7 minutes walk from the train station, it is about 18 minutes walk. Would be helpful if provide daily shuttle at certain timing instead of just the to/from for check in and check out. The facilities really good and clean!
The pick up from the bus/train station was very convenient but to try and walk there from after the hours of pick up would be a pretty decent walk! The Mt. Fuji tour was a great experience, a little pricey, but get to see more than I would be able to see on my own! Wish the beds in the dorms had curtains to block light but overall it was a good experience! Everything was really clean, including bathroom and kitchen!
This hostel is the most comfortable and cleanest hostel I have ever seen! What a lovely place to stay! Clean kitchen, Clean common room, Clean restroom. Most importantly, helpful staff !!

Lovely helpful staff, nice room and relaxing communal areas, nice and quiet hostel - marina was amazing to us!! Would definitely stay here again and in any of the other K's hostels if they are as good as this one :)
Very friendly and helpful staff members in this clean and cozy accommodation. I enjoyed my stay tremendously.
As with all the Ks hostels, absolutely perfect. The staff and the facilities could not be better. Would definately recommend and stay again.
First time staying at a K's House and it was great! Especially in the Mt Fuji area as you can get gorgeous views of the mountain so close to the hostel. Perfect for hikers starting their climb or travellers just seeing the sights. The staff are really friendly and the shuttle bus from the main train station is very helpful.
Great place, super staff, helpful pickup service from the station. Spotless hostel and great private japanese room.
For japan a quite big hostel; everything was nice and clean but I like the atmosphere of smaller hostels better
Our room for private 4 persons is too small. We should remove the table when we want go to bed all.
The location is about 15-20min walk from train station, and there's no convenient public transport to get you around - but the hostel provides a pick-up service from/to the station on your arrival/departure days, which is great. All in all, great hostel, solid internet - unexpected bonus is the availability of reasonably priced rental bikes.
Free pick-up and drop off at the station, friendly staff and good facilities. Helped us organise our way to Kyoto from the hostel and made transport reservations for us. We hired a bike from the hostel and cycled around the lake, it was beautiful. Would recommend.
The hostel itself was very clean and comfortable. Big common roon and kitchen combined with clean bathroom. The staff were also helpful. The only disadvantage thing is the location which is about 10-15 minutes walk to the train station.
