Good”
Had a lovely stay, though the location was a 20 minute walk from the bus stop. Had all the necessary facilities and the staff were helpful with giving advice about the area.

English speaking staff. I think this is the nearest one you can get from the Shirakawago village by foot.

Good”
They provide pick-up service from the bus station but only at 5PM. The driver is very nice, though he doesn't speak English, he is a good listener and very warm. Room and washroom are clean and well maintained. However. the location is too far from the village and it is impossible to walk during winter especially when there is a heavy downpour. It can be too cold at night since they only have a small heater in the room. The price is too expensive for a bunk bed but I guess this is due to the fact that it's near the village. The male staff can be a little impatient when you ask him for information.

It is a wonderful hostel which make you feel at home ans warm in heart. ”
Ant House is not around ShirakawaGo Bus Terminal Stop, but absolutely not a concern, because Taro-san picked the guest and drove me to the hostel. To get to the Bus Terminal Stop the next day, we just needed to walk 3 minutes to the nearby bus stop, and pay for 160Y. The Lady of Ant House invited us with ginger tea and funny talking. I felt like home here, and I could make friends with other guests. Dont forget to check the nearby restaurant for Hida beef with cheap price (1,300Y for a Set). The Hostel is so clean, warm with heated fan and comfortable bunk beds. You can check out the scene of students going to the school nearby at 8:00AM. Evryone here is smiley and sends you warm greetings. It is absolutely a wonderful experience!

Friendly and cozy”
Friendly, cozy dormitory accommodation. Transport pick up provided at 5.30 pm at the Shirakawago bus terminus. Coffee was provided for the breakfast but would be better if light breakfast is thrown in as well.
