    Probably the closest hostel you'll find to Himeji castle. A great place to stay if you want to get up early and get sunrise pictures of the castle since it's a 20m walk to a great lookout.

    Perfect location in Himeji, near the castle on a quiet part of the main shopping strip. Lovely, friendly hostess. Only downside is that if people are chatting downstairs you can hear every word in the upstairs private room, until downstairs closes around 10.30pm, so might not suit an early night...

    Everything overall was acceptable but the 10-4 closing is super inconvenient, so I can’t recommend this to people who need rest. It doesn’t make a visitor feel welcome when they come from far away places and can’t even lie down in their own beds until 4. The staff is friendly but if you want a quiet moment to check your email or phone forget about it. The common area also closes at 11, so it feels more like 4-11 is the time you have to entertain people instead of relaxing.

    Staff were lovely and spoke excellent English. You were shut out of the hostel between 10-4pm which was a strange policy, didn’t effect me as I was only staying the night. Old house with creeky floors so you could hear everything from your bed, both outside and inside. Was fine for a one a night stop over

    The lady that run the hostel was nice and as there was only one other guest I didn't have a problem with the fact that there was only ONE toilet. The issue that I couldn't deal with , especially in a first world country like Japan, was the DIRTY OLD BED LINEN. And I say bed linen when it really was a mattress cover and a pillow cover they gave me . Nothing worse than sleeping in a dirty bed. Stay Away!
