Property Description

A 20-minute walk from JR Wakayama Station, Guesthouse RICO offers dormitory-style and private rooms with free Wi-Fi.

The guesthouse was renovated from an old apartment building situated in the street where is known as a wholesale district for a long time. The reception and lounge are on the 1st floor while the guestrooms are on the 5th floor. Featuring warm hardwood walls & floors and old furniture, the lounge is a relaxing space for not only staying guests but also local people. It serves western-style breakfast in the morning, and opens as a bar at night.

Guests can choose to stay in private double rooms or in dormitory-style rooms. There are both western style dormitories with bunk beds, and Japanese-style dormitories where guests sleep on tatami-matted floors. All guestrooms have air conditioning. Bathrooms and toilets are shared.

The guesthouse is conveniently located within walking distance to Wakayama Castle and many other sightseeing spots. It is a perfect base for touring the city.

Staying at this hostel was one of my highlights! The staff was so warm and friendly, and went out of their way to help me and make me feel at home. The downstairs co-working space has a super cool vibe and they seemed to have some events there too. The only negative point was that since there is such an open/familiar atmosphere, my room was usually left unlocked and I don't remember seeing any lockers for your stuff (but I also didn't ask!) Other than that, 10/10 I will definitely stay again!

Lovely hosts, couldn’t do enough for me, even helped me dry my shoes out when I got wet in the rain. Simple dorms but all the necessities. Nice area to relax in and good kitchen facilities.
