    I had an absolutely amazing time staying here. The place is charming, rooms are clean it is in a perfect spot to see all the sights, almost everything is in walking distance. The best part about this place is the staff/owner and his wife! They are so kind they went out of their way to help me, even BBQ-ed things for me and took me in their car somewhere because they were able to! Just a beautiful experience! Highly recommend! What a great place! And Takachiho is gorgeous!

    A truly amazing stay! Location was fantastic, facilities were great and the bedroom was comfy. Best of all was the staff- Atsuo was an amazing host, and went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable, and have a great time. He is such a kindhearted and fun loving guy! I cannot wait to stay here again!

    This is a wonderful little hostel in the centre of Takachiho. Walking distance to the gorge and the main shrine, and surrounded by a choice of restaurants and bars. The hostel itself is a beautiful old house, the rooms are cosy and the beds are unbelievably comfortable! Our hosts went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome! They even drove us to the Sea of Clouds! I highly recommend staying here for your time in Takachiho! I will certainly be back. :)

    Awesome place, right around the corner from the bus station and within walking distance to Takachiho Gorge as well as plenty of restaurants/places to eat. Atsuo is a great host and clearly knows lots about the area and speaks perfect English as well. The house itself has a traditional Japanese feel to it, which I personally really likes. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Takachiho.

    The owners were really kind and funny. Their English is good and they've travelled a lot so they've got many great stories. Also, someone who can come up with the name "pineapple donkey hostel" is guaranteed to be great.

    A nice laid-back hostel in a nice sleepy town. The owner is happy to help you with planing anything you want to do in the area and has a complete list of all the buses at the hostel. It is an easy walk from Takachiho gorge and the tourism office, with lots of restaurants nearby.
