    My two friends and i very much enjoyed our stay here. The beds were comfortable and well-kept. The staff was very nice. It was great to be able to use the kitchen for breakfast. Other guests were friendly too and it was nice to interact with them. The space was very open and comfortable and homey. We're really glad we stayed there.

    I really really love this guesthouse. I have stayed here a few times and every time it's so wonderful. Perfectly situated in the quiet hillside, but not a far walk from the train station and super close to many restaurants. There are always new wonderful people to meet here. My favourite part is the little outside area, that lights up with fairy lights at night. The perfect place to sip an asahi and unwind.

    Homely hostel! Everything was spotless clean and the location was really ideal for me as I wanted to hike nearby trails and stay away from main streets. The bakery Noboriya nearby is stunning - I ate their everyday! The staff is very helpful, the toilets/showers were always clean and available and the bed was super comfortable. Only 2 improvements - I wish they would let me use my own lock for lockers and the atmosphere was better - needs more solo travelers, better common areas to hang out.
