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.

Fabulous

Loved the vibe downstairs, they had good cheesecake and the staff recommended some great beer. Felt a bit “hipster” which was kind of a turn off if that makes any sense. Overall really good but maybe just not my vibe totally. The bathhouse across the street was AWESOME and they don’t care about tattoos.

Truly one of the best hostels I've stayed at. Excellent atmosphere, awesome bar/cafe in front that lots of locals go to, and run by some great people. I don't normally leave reviews but I highly recommend staying here.
