Small kitchen area with free basics and honesty boxes for saki, real coffee beans, etc. Quiet, especially main sleeping hours. close to old town, resturants and shops and JR train and the... More

What a homey little place that Shingo and Madoka have here in Takayama. We found out that Shingo originally was in Canada working in Banff, not far from where we come from! What a cool connection. The facilities are what you would expect of a guesthouse/hostel. We were in a six person mixed dorm. Clean sheets, immaculate bathroom facilities, safe... More

Visited for 2 nights in April - happened to be over the naked festival which was lucky! All the staff at the hostel are fantastic and could not have been more helpful to us helping plan our days and offering discounts at the local onsens. We hired bikes and went to hida folk village and cycles the local area. The... More

very warm welcome as soon as you arrive. the staff made sure that maps and local recommendations for places of interests and restaurants are readily available and available anytime for questions. there is only one common shower room though, so expect some waiting time. kitchen is open for guests to use for free. each bed has provision for electric outlet...

Very nice guesthouse with small kitchen (including coffee, tea, fridge and what else you might need), cozy common room, showers and restrooms on the lower floor and on the upper floor: dormitories and rooms which were nicely heated. Very homely experience - the guesthouse owners are very friendly and it almost feels like you are a small part of their... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a female dorm. Beds were reasonably private, very spacious, and very comfortable. Bring earplugs because like most older Japanese buildings, the walls are very thin. The hostel is in a fantastic location very close to the station which gives great access for day trips to the wider Hida region. A short walk from the historic... More

Myself and two others stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. The staff are so friendly from the moment you arrive. They make you very welcome. The location is perfect if you are carrying heavy bags from the train as its only a 2 minute walk. The main attractions in town are not far away either. Very hard... More

We stayed 3 nights in the double room which has generous dimensions for Japanese standards. The guesthouse is conveniently located, 200m away from the train/bus station and is in a small building. It is traditionally decorated and spotless. There is a small kitchen with free coffee and tea. The common area is also nice and have a big table. The... More

Would so recommend. Shingo was a great guy. Really helpful and had solid suggestions. Rooms were great, good ac, good showers, bathrooms, etc. Good location in small town. Very close to station. Quiet little town and everything closes early so make sure to eat earlyish (pre 8)
