It's a very japanes style guesthouse runs by young people. The guesthouse is not locate on the big street, however, the bus stop near by can bring you to the most of popular sightseeingspots, and it's about 25 mins walk to Daibutsu temple. Very impressive and definitely recomment.

The atmosphere among guests were awesome especially we were having dinner and sake around Irori fire place. I regretted having booked only one night. Staff were accommodative and very knowledgable about Kamakura. I definitely recommend this place to anyone who seek authentic and pleasant budget hostel in the area. I'm Japanese but I don't see such "Japanese" style house recently.

I stayed with my mum for one night before visiting Kamakura. The place is well kept in a traditional Japanese house. Although minimal, the guesthouse is very clean and the fire corner is a cozy must.

This is definitely one of the best hostels I've ever had the pleasure of staying at! The staff is very courteous, friendly and talkative. The hostel is clean, compact and traditionally Japanese! The hostel has bikes, which we used and definitely recommend - it's an easy way to explore all of the beauty Kamakura has to offer.

“If you intend to stay here, be mindful that this place is NOT a hotel, so do remember to bring your own towel. Alternatively, the guesthouse will give you a small towel for just 200yen. It is also not a very big guesthouse, so best not to bring big luggage bags.”
