One of the best hostels I stayed in Japan. Really great atmosphere and easy to meet people if you are travelling by yourself. The staff are also really nice and helpful. Highly recommend staying here.

The staff are amazing even with very little english they get on well with everybody and they work at understanding you.


I loooved this place! Cheap but so atmospheric and great. The only problem I ever faced on my visit there was a guy who snored really loud, but there's not much they can do about that. Loved this place, and kamakura! HIGHLY recommend it!!!


Everything was great!! And also the staff was very helpful and kind. I felt like at home.


The staff here is awesome! The ladies cooked every night and were happy to share anything I expressed curiosity about- yum! The location is out of the way and a bit hard to find; when you get off the bus from Kamakura station, cross the main road and go up the street next to the car dealership, turn left just after the canal, and it's past the park on the right. Overall, it was a great place to stay! Thank you!


Good place, even if a bit far from the center, welcoming staff trying to create a good atmosphere between the guests. Be careful : The place is not accessible between 10am and 2 pm, you'll be asked to go out.


I love it there r so kind and nice we gonna back again

This is a very pleasant guesthouse, set up in a "traditional" manner, i.e. mattress on tatami mats in the dorm. Whilst a little away from the main tourist spots, the hostel has very friendly staff, and a cosy common room. Also attached bar run by a top local. Recommended


Awesome japanese style guesthouse with great staff and a bar underneath that serves tasty food. Bar staff are lots of fun and there are Japanese regulars who drink there which adds to the atmosphere. Highly recommended 😃
