Really lovely hostel in the perfect location for seeing Takayama. They put on a whole sushi night for us for free and not just samples of sushi enough for me to be full up!! And with apple crumble dessert!! Rooms were clean and the 4 bed dorm I was in had an ensuite. The room was small but manageable
More like a hotel than a hostel, this is a great place to stay whilst in Takayama. The common room is really comfortable and sociable….very easy to meet other travellers. The rooms are great. Place is spotless!
You can't fault K's House hostels.. I stayed 3 weeks in Japan & ended up in 4 different Ks Houses.. each excellent. All extremely well maintained, great dorms, lovely common areas, great bathrooms, super friendly staff, good locations. With the discount card I saved about $20 because I stayed at so many Ks Houses! Ive stayed in about 35 hostels around the world & these are up there with the best. Highly Recommended!
Very good location and accomodation quality. Would have actually preferred shared bathroom facilities in the hallway (like other K's House), as opposed to ones in dorm rooms, if it meant bigger-sized bathrooms. Otherwise, a pleasure to stay at.
Good hostel, clean and modern. As solo traveller, I stayed in a 4 people mixed dorm - comfortable beds, clean room, clean and new ensuite bathroom - all good. There's common space, laundry facilities, big kitchen, free wi-fi. Generally it's all there. Staff speaks English (sort of) - from a hostel I actually expected better English, but no problems with communication.
Simple but clean and nice. Kitchen facilites are very new and clean.

Great location, it is so easy to find! The atmosphere is warm and cosy and the staff is very helpful. This is the first time I'm using K's House. I'm keen to visit other K's House branches in Japan.

Great beds, shower in esch dorm room, great location and very helpful staff, stayed an extra night in takayama because the hostel was so good!
Excellent location (but then again it is a small town), clean, very nice common area and well equipped kitchen (with free shaved ice available). The beds are big enough and comfortable, but the rooms in general are a bit cramped and so are the washrooms too. Anyway, I'd stay again.
An absolute gem. Hotel quality room with all the hostel services including great info from friendly staff, free internet, kitchen area, common room and great location near the bus station.
very good wi fi connection in all the rooms. very convenient at 5 min from the train station.nice staff.i highly recommend it.
Very nice hostel. Clean japanese style rooms. Very helpful english speaking staff.
Clean, secured, spacious lobby with helpful staff. Dorm rooms were pretty small and compact. Thankfully, only had two beds occupied during my stay in a 4-bed dorm; otherwise, it would have been difficult to move around. It was also very near the station and near the old district. Overall, good experience.
Good location just a few minutes away from the train and bus station. One of the women in the reception acted like a machine and that she didn't like customers. But I got helpful information about the mountains and trekkings. The hostel is very nice and clean, sometimes it feels like a small design hotel.
I got lucky. I booked this hostel last minute and it was great. It was quiet, clean, safe and the staff was very helpful. Close to the train station, resturants and convience stores. Loved the individual bathrooms in each room. I would stay here again without hesitation.
The accommodation, location, and staff were all awesome. Very helpful and polite excellent facilities at very reasonable rates. Much appreciated.
I really like the staff, all three of whom were very amicable and friendly (despite the fact they recommended a nearby cafe for breakfast with a senile origami-folding-grandma and gave us Thai candies that give one diarrhea when over-consumed). I especially liked Eriko who stayed 45 minutes after she got off work at night to chat with my companions and I. The place was clean, had good wi-fi, and was in a convenient location as well.
This hostel is really neat and tidy. Decor is different to other K's hostels. A bit of a more traditional, darker vibe. No bright blue to be seen! Location is great and staff are really friendly. Services and facilities are more than sufficient.
