An outstanding hostel stay, couldn't have wanted or needed more. Staff were amazing and their tour of the area excellent. I can't rate K's House at Mount Fuji highly enough.
Great hostel. Had a lovely stay here, the staff were very helpful. Facilities were great. We did the half day tour and Taro was a great guide and very knowledgeable :) This is a quiet hostel, great place to come and have a relax away from Tokyo.
Great location next to lake Kawaguchiko. Staff put on a great tour of the surrounding area (Fuji, Aokigahara forest, etc.) but it is only on certain days. Good social areas to meet and mix with other travelers. Kitchen has everything you need. Only criticism would be the 6 bed dorm I was in, the space between the bunk beds and wall was pretty small (a meter?) so for in room luggage space this particular room could be a bit cramped if you travel heavy. There were lockers under the beds though.
Really friendly staff - big plus. The room was nice and warm - big enough for 4 people. Unfortunately, my dorm was near the bathroom and there were a few Chinese families who didn't know how to keep their voices down. There was a lot of banging and yelling at night and 6am! Also the wifi isn't great at this hostel. Otherwise a good hostel
Great hostel, well equipped kitchen facilities, close to kawaguchi lake photo spots. If arriving before 7.30, staff will pick up from station. If you're going there for the mt Fuji photos, make sure to check weather forecast
Best hostel I stayed in in japan. Friendly clean good common area. Perfect!
The only comment we have is that reception closes at 8pm, after which you don't know how or where to contact staff. Otherwise everything was excellent, we recommend it!
Another great hostel from the K's House team. Good location for Mt. Fuji and very clean. The only thing I would say is that the wifi didn't reach my bed - not to worry though as there is so much to see outside you didn't need the wifi!!
The guest house is really nice and clean, big rooms and the common room is great. But the half day trip to mount Fuji or the day trip is not worth the money. It is too expensive and I really felt that I got ripped off. They drove us up to the 4th station, even when the 5th station on the mount Fuji was opened they did not make the effort to drive us to the 5th station, even when we said we are willing to wait if there is a queue. Will not make the same mistake to book it again.
I enjoyed my time here and stayed in the new deluxe room. Lovely atmosphere, great staff and a free regular shuttle service to and from the station. The only downside was the incredibly poor internet - sort it out K!
Very nice place with great facilities, nice lounge room, and everything was very clean. Location is close to the local bus route, and they pick you up at Kawaguchi station which is good. Very knowledgeable on the train/bus schedules around the area. Stayed in a private double room, beds (futons) were very comfortable and room was nice and warm. Definitely recommend this hostel, nothing bad to say.
Staffs were friendly. The free shuttle is convenient for us.

I like the staffs there, they are very helpful and the place is nicely kept. Location is strategic as it is near to the Lake Kawaguchiko.
Decent location as the town is small. The hostel staff is very helpful and speaks great English! I'd recommend this stay to travelers who arrive by train/bus as they offer free pickups before night time. The price for certain things within the hostel was rather expensive, such as towel rentals. I suggest staff to lower prices!
Maybe improving/changing the computer settings into english results could help the travellers more on their search instead of Japanese.

The bus service to and from the station is great!
Excellent hostel. Perfect location, great staff, very clean, many facilities.
Good location, can walk from Kawaguchiko Station. Their HW booking does not list the DATES of the Mt. Fuji tour, only learned upon arrival it was not running yet. Good kitchen and common area - guests pretty much followed the rules. No wifi on second floor. Overall good experience.
This is the best large hostel I've stayed at. Huge kitchen and common area, proactive and friendly staff, and awesome location. Super pleased.
