I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Kamakura Guesthouse, in particular due to the wonderful staff. Kota and Okiku made us very welcome and cooked us a great evening meal. It was great to be able to leave our luggage before check-in time and after check-out time.

Kamakura guest house, was a great experience, very friendly, great atmosphere, and a quiet location. public transport was handy if you need it, i used the taxi's as they were very cheap. The guest house was warm and comfortable. The staff could not do enough. A beautiful Japanese experience.

Awesome hostel. Very friendly staff. A true guesthouse experience.


All in all a great place to stay. Nice people. What was unfortunate is that during my stay it was really cold and there was no heater in the large room so I got extermely cold. Also because my bed was next to window. There is a nice fireplace inside though, but it was already night so it was a cold night. Hard to solve immediately I think and I'm not sure if everyone had as cold as I had, but staff can inform you to make sure you need to stay warm when a cold night is ahead.


The staff and atmosphere actually deserve 6 stars instead of five. Definetly one of the best stays during my 3-month travel through Japan. Thats a big, fat recommendation! Thanks again for everything to all of you. Okini Tensai ;-)
