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.
Beautiful traditional house a little outside kamakura.Very friendly staff. speak english....lots of good information. Gave us free bikes..excellent for getting around to the different temples and sushi bars
Everything is great except that there is only one bathroom for dozens of people. Sometimes need to wait after midnight for the shower.
This hostel is excellent and the staffs are friendly. Though they don't speak fluent English but they're all willing to help you The room is really japan style- clean and tidied I like it so much and meet nice people there What a beautiful night in Kamakura !!!
It is far from the center of town but they let you a bike for a day and the second day you can rent it. The staff is ok. And the experience is worth because it is very traditional Japanese style house.
I think the location is not so good But the house is good, the dormitory one and private one are good!
nice hostel, but the light off in the dorm was at 10pm so you either make yourself ready early or annoy a couple of people...
Kamakura guesthouse was excellent. They have put a modern twist on Japanese traditional. The futon rolls are very comfortable compared to other tradition places we stayed and there is a very cute bar with nice people downstairs. We enjoyed this guesthouse more than any other in Japan.
