  • Very good value and excellent location (if you're wanting to see Himeji Castle and other nearby attractions). It is a bit of a trek from the train station but that really depends on the weather (I stayed in the middle of the summer heat) and how much stuff you have (a bookbag would be fine but add a wheeled carry on and it's a bit much:-). Hosts were very friendly and attentive and the house has a very lively atmosphere. AC in the summer would be nice but had a fan and otherwise worth the price.

  • We booked a private room and it was very spacious, cozy and quiet. We had a private toilet and a sink, which was outside. The shared bath/shower is in a horrible condition, though. Close to the Himeji castle but really far from the Himeji train station - take a bus no.8 =) internet only in the main building.

  • It was a lovely place to stay very laid back. The staff were amazing, they helped us with the map! The value for money was great! I would recommend this guest house to anyone! :)
