Kamakura Guesthouse is not really near train station but you have to take the bus and arrive. Actually this is a nice hostel that I have never experience. Although price is a little bit too high but the atmosphere and staff and the house is really awesome that you will think you are really worth to spend the money. If you want to meet some interesting people here, don't forget go to the bar on the 1st floor, which offer Japanese Sake and Beer.
This hostel is something special. The atmosphere around the indoor fireplace when you sit there together to bbq food in the evening is something you wont find in a lot of hostels. The staff is really nice and helpful but for us it was difficult to speak with them because they speak next to no english at all (we still got all our questions answered somehow :-D ) The hostel is a little off the central area but there is a good busconnection & bicycles This is a definite recommendation!
Really like Kamakura Guesthouse, a very traditional experience sleeping on tatami mats, a traditional indoor firepit - roasting taro potatos in the fire pit and drinking green tea with other traveling locals. I thought it was a lovely stay would definitely come back and stay longer.
Staff, atmosphere and accommodation are incredible! It is a bit away from the station though. I surely reccomend.
The place is friendly, if you are young and don:t mind being crowded. There is only one shower and hot water sink, and that is totally inadequate for the number of people. The location is out of the way of anything interesting, and the neighborhood is not much of anything. The staff has only limited English, so being patient is a necessity.

Really great atmosphere because of the small size, friendly staff and traditional style of sleeping on tatami. Everyone is really helpful and it was easy to get along with the staff. It feels as though you're house sitting together! There's also this great little bar downstairs which is nice to withdraw too at night and chill. An awesome place.
Nice place to stay. Staff very helpfull and kind... Bicycle rental possible, very practical to go around the temples. Free wifi and computer available.
