It’s a beautiful place with a very nice vibe. It is 3 mins walk from the Biwa beach. The place is tastefully done with all the amenities. The reception staff speaks English. I loved my stay there. In fact I extended it by one more day.

This hostel was really clean and the staff were extremely helpful. Because the hostel is about 15-20 mins on foot from the nearest station and the nearest convenience store (7-11) is about 15 mins away in a different direction, they offered to drive me around. The facilities were good, however wi-fi strength in each room could have been improved further. Overall, it was a very pleasant and enjoyable stay. Thanks J-Hoppers Lake Biwa Guesthouse! :)
