We stayed in a private room upstairs at the back which had its own traditional Japanese toilet, which was great for convenience. The rooms are located close together and there is not much privacy between walls, but this really didn't bother us at all. The room was a good size and the air conditioning unit heated the room well. The...

Slightly mixed feelings about this place, although generally more positive than not. We arrived in Onomichi on a hot summer day and immediately headed towards the hostel for a quick check in to enjoy fine weather outside. - At 2 pm we're told that we still couldn't check in which was a bit frustrating. Luckily they changed their mind allowing...

Extremely characterful building, converted from some sort of old fishing townhouse - very long and thin with rooms lined up in a row. The owners have done great work with the space, very cosy and above all interesting building. Rooms were clean and staff were very friendly and helpful.

先輩と女二人で行きました。駅からは商店街の半分くらいを楽しみながら行きますし、距離的にも遠くないので交通面は◎料金は朝食400円つけて一人あたり一泊3,200円でした。朝食は美味しかったですが、近くのお店で過ごすのもいいと思います。マップとかも揃ってますし、尾道に本当に詳しく、案内も丁寧でした。雰囲気は💮可愛いしレトロだし、面白いし。寝心地も良く、おしゃれな感じもあります。見どころ満載でまた行きたいなと思います。ただ、私は半端ないくらい蚊に刺されました。もう一人は刺されなかったそうですが。なので刺されやすい人はムヒ必須です。また暑い時期は尾道では刺されまくると思いますので、持って行くことをおすすめします。 Foreign people can enjoy a relaxing stay there.The owner can speak English.Of course they're very nice.

The guesthouse was in the middle of the shopping district of Onomichi (but don't worry, everything gets quiet around 7-8 pm). Price was pretty decent and fairly typical of Japanese guesthouses with some extra amenities washing machine access being pay-per-use. I was comfortable at night, although I wouldn't have minded the air conditioning being a bit stronger.

I absolutely adored this guest house. If anyone has been in Japan long enough, they have undoubtedly been exposed to artifacts from the Showa period. Anagononedoko and its accompanying restaurant so perfectly represent this time in Japanese history that I felt as though I were transported back to the 1950s or 60s. The music, setting and memorabilia fascinated me. I...

The hostel is really cute, in a tiny alley way above a cafe and offers everything you could need. They also provide a lot of info on what to do with your bedding, where things are. Really lovely and helpful staff - one staff member even came to the pharmacy with me to help me order some medication. The shared...

Such a great place. My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights and loved it! Very quirky and friendly place. The way the bunk beds are set out makes it feel more private. We loved it as it has a very traditional Japanese feel and we were made to feel very welcome. Highly recommend!!

One of my favorites in Japan atm. Although this place is a budget hotel, it is also a perfect stay for groups (maybe up to 3-4 people) and couples. So, where should I start... Let's start with the atmosphere. If you want to experience a typical Japanese local house and how it feels like to be living 40-50 years ago,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sharing the same long and narrow shape as the bed of an eel, the Onomichi guesthouse Anago no Nedoko was named after the local townhouse specialty of anago (or eel in English) and is a property of the Onomichi vacant housing renewal project, Akiyasaisei. Formerly a port town, the shopping district area of Onomichi flourished long ago. Even now old, elongated townhouses are still abundant in the middle of town, but the interior and full extent of these buildings-how interiors are divided and used for living -goes unseen and is not widely known even in Onomichi. These historical buildings have a special place in our hearts and we are trying to do our best to pass them on to the next generation. Until now here hasn't been a big enough influx of young people to shoulder the load in the creative field in Onomichi, people with the aim of expanding tourism, with an eye towards sharing information, cultures and ideas in a new space with the old atmosphere. And so in the fall of 2012 the Onomichi guesthouse Anago no Nedoko opens its doors as the doors of more and more shops in the old shopping arcade close for good. We hope our guesthouse will be a base for strangers and young people to connect to the area. ... more   less
