The property is very close to Takayama JR station. The bus station (Nohi Bus) is just next to JR station. It takes around 10 minutes walk to the historical section for local houses. Therefore, the location of the property is great! There is an elevator available in the hostel which is quite helpful if you have big luggage. The staffs speak good English, and are nice & helpful. Everything here is very convenient and match our needs:)


Very happy with the stay. The common rooms are cozy and well decorated, and the staff very courteous and helpful. You can even rent a cotton robe for 100 Yen, quite cute. There is always coffee and tea in the cozy kitchen. It is about a 7-10 mins stroll to the old town and 5-7 mins from the station. The entire old town area closes by 5 pm, and by 6 pm the streets are deserted.


The hostel was amazing and clean with a great common area and kitchen! Super friendly staff! Only sad thing was that we booked a double bed and had to share a bunk-bed instead.


Location and hostel facilities are great. Kitchen supplies are sufficient. Sitting room and dining room are spotless, full of home atmosphere. I have indeed enjoyed my coffee time in the early morning. The hostel staff is very nice & helpful. The tourist information provided is useful and rich. I am very appreciated of leaving my luggage in hostel before check-in time that it is not allowed by other hostals. I definitely return to K's House in very near future.

Thanks, dear Tomoe-san to you and your colleagues for the heartily welcome and caring all the time I stayed in K´s House. It was like staying in a big family! The Party for celebrating 2 Years of K´s House Takayama was great.


Nice new place, overall it is pretty darn good. I thjnk the lack of social atmosphere is because it's Takayama...


This was my only stay in a K's house and I really liked it. I was in a 4 beds dorm. Bathroom/shower were in-room type and everything was very clean. Location is also very great. Close to pretty much everything in beautiful Takayama. Staff was also very nice and recommended a lot of nice places to go eat/drink/visit. Shared areas like lounge and kitchen were spotless and felt very welcoming. Will definitely go back there.


New and clean. Very well managed/organized. Wonderful Japanese taste. They care every detail for the guests. One of the best quality hostels in Japan. Thanks.


Deserving of the name quality, especially for the price. Clean, friendly and helpful staff.


Great little hostel - new, comfortable and clean. Staff are great too. Would definitely recommend.


Nice hostel, very clean, has everything you would need and incredibly helpful and friendly staff!


Very nice and homey hostel almost felt more like a hotel! Staff were excellent and helpful. Lots of information around with sights, locals foods etc. Close to train station and easy to find but it's not a very big town anyways. Two decent sized common areas as well as a really decent kitchen! Only thing I can faults is the rooms were pretty small and not much room to leave bags also no lockers or security in room. But I would def stay again! Ks House is a wonderful chain!


This was a great hostel. Friendly staff, very clean rooms and great amenities. You can make snow cones in the kitchen. Really good value for money. The common areas were good.
