I only stayed at Pongyi for one night. But it was easily the most memorable and enjoyable stay during my entire trip in Japan. The staff, Yu and Maru were very helpful and friendly. They made me feel at home during my short stay in Kanazawa.
They told me that the guesthouse used to be a kimono shop for a long time before turned into Pongyi Guesthouse.
I stayed in the female dorm - which has four beds in it. It was small but very comfortable and very clean.
They taught me how to make paper cranes and taught me some useful Japanese phrases too.
I came in too early before the check in time, but the owner kindly offered to keep my luggage in the store room and he even showed me the short cut to the city centre.
The place is super convenient and easy to find. It's only a 5 min walk from the Kanazawa JR station.
I highly recommend this place if you are looking for an affordable, comfortable and clean accommodation in Kanazawa.
