a brand-new guest house, opened June 2009, aimed for short-stay budget travelers and backpackers. Pongyi is especially suited for those travelers looking for more atmospheric and authentically Japanese accommodation.
It is the first hostel available in Kanazawa, one of the oldest cities in Japan. Kanazawa suffered no damage during the Second World War which ensured the survival of its rich cultural heritage.

The guesthouse within walking distance of Kanazawa Station and located by the beautiful Kuratsuki canal. All of Kanazawa's sights are easily accessible from the guesthouse's central location.
As a cozy little guest house Pongyi is clean, inexpensive and comfortable, with 2 dormitory style rooms and a Japanese style tatami-room. We look forward to having you as our guest!
