We stayed for two nights in the private double room. Great location, extremely clean and comfortable rooms. The owners were lovely, mapping restaurants and sites worth seeing around the town. Highly recommend to anyone travelling to Takayama!

The owners of this guesthouse are so sweet! They speak english very well, and are prepared to help you with anything. They provide a map of the city and recommend some places to eat/drink/have breakfast. They also organised a Bbq for their guests. The guesthouse itself is small, but very clean. Small downside; it has only 1 shower, and it... More

Because of a Taifun I arrived in Takayama at midnight. I hadn't booked anything yet and was a little bit worried if I would find a place to stay. The host of the guesthouse and I accidentally met at the station and he offered me a room. He and his wife were very kind and helpful. Besides that the guesthouse... 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

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
