スタッフのみなさんが、本当に素晴らしいです。約一週間の滞在でしたが、帰るたびに温かく迎えてくれました。古い古民家ということもあり、建物を守るためのルールがたくさんあります。その中で、聞かれたことに対してダメですできません！ではなく、やってみます！こうしたらどうでしょう？と前向きにゲストと接しているところにとても好感が持てました。 古民家らしい木の温もりがあり、畳の部屋や小さなお庭はとても雰囲気があって気持ちが安らぎます。 トイレ、洗面所、お風呂もキレイに掃除されていて気持ちよく使えます。 キッチンにはガスコンロもあります。基本的なものは揃っています。 公共スペースとキッチンが外にあるので冬や春先は寒く、滞在中に料理をされる方は天気に振り回されることがあります。特に調理スペースには雨が降り込んでくるので、長居できません。 洗濯は100円でできます。干すスペースは日当たりが良くお天気のいい日はすぐに乾きます。
今回は一人旅、初めてドミトリータイプの宿泊を選びました。 宿の中は素敵な空間で居心地は良く、スタッフの方も優しく気が利きわたしにとっては有難い限りでした。 また利用させていただきたいです。
There is a 24hour supermarket and a 100yen shop nearby which are good for shopping. However, the kitchen is outside the house so it’s quite hot and has mosquitoes when it’s summer. Plus dinning room is next to the kitchen. I stayed at ladies dormitory and it is a separated place from the house so it is a little bit inconvenient for me to take on and off the slippers every time I go back to the room.
You are cash on two feet for them”
Within 10 years and almost 50 countries this is the first negative review I’ve ever written. The Location is alright, other than that not a lot more. Mysterious taxes and fees appeared to everybody I spoke to (different ones though ^^), they actually wanted to charge a guy for two days rent for a bicycle cause he asked to get it a little bit before they are officially renting them. For me cause of the snow my bus was running late so I texted them. They told me to pay 4000 yen for checking in later (only cash though.. can only guess why). When I questioned this they got very rude and disrespectful, would neither change, cancel or just send the check-in information via E-Mail- i already had paid, so I ended up having to look for something different short notice. Seems cheap in the beginning but we all ended up paying extra.
Cosy, convenience and cheerful staff”
5 mins walk to metro, there is 100yen shop, pharma store & supermarket nearby. Staff are nice and helpful, the only thing is shower water... when both shower was occupied the water supply seems not good enough.
It has a lot of good points. It's a bit of a walk from Gojo Station but in a quiet area with some good places nearby. It's an old Japanese home and all of it looks very nice. I liked the turtle and the two young people working there. I found it a little uncomfortable to have so many pairs of slippers for each part of the house. It's partly indoors and outdoors. The kitchen is outdoors and the girl's dorm right by it. When I first went in I thought we may get mosquitoes and sure enough we did. The worker was nice enough to light a mosquito coil for us and bring it to our room. I was afraid they may bother us after he went home but they didn't. That night the smoke from the mosquito coil left a slightly bad smell. In the morning I had a slight headache which was probably due to that. Other times though the room had a nice woodsy scent. I kind of felt like I was camping. One night one family and one group had dinner while talking pretty loudly in the kitchen area about 10:00-10:30 and the noise bothered two of us who were trying to sleep. After talking to them though they started to talk more quietly. There's a rule that people should be quiet after 11pm which is displayed clearly. Some guesthouses ask people to be quiet after 10pm. I think that's better as some go to bed earlier. Travelers sometimes have to leave very early to get to their next destination. The toilets are clean and functioning. The bathrooms are pretty tiny. You can wash your clothes for 100 yen in their one washing machine which worked fine. You must hang them up in a certain area upstairs and you must climb a very narrow, steep staircase to get there. I climbed very slowly because I was a little afraid but it was okay. An old Japanese house is quite different than what Western people are used to. It was nice to have this new experience. I liked that the AC in the girl's dorm worked well. In the front area it was a little hot. I disliked that the price during the holiday was about $1
Good self service guesthouse”
We were in Kyoto for the foliage and booked this guesthouse because my wife wanted a room with a garden in a traditional Japanese house. This place is a self service guesthouse. You make your own bed. They have 2 bathrooms and 3 toilets outside the room (1 toilet is famale only). There's bus stop on the main road about 200m. Supermarket for food, convenient store just around the corner (within 100m). There are 2 shops to rent kimono near by (100m walking). This place is quiet but it is an old house so the wall is thin, you can hear people talking and squeaking sound of the floor. If you're sensitive to sound when sleeping, you better buy ear-buds. The staffs can speak English pretty good and very helpful. They also have bike rental service.
Very nice and dedicated room, the position is also convenient for travel. Especially, the turtle( which named Taro) is so cute!
nice historic building”
but they will act like they never met you after you check out. You have to leave the premises. Most places I stay let me leave my bag there, but this place seemed upset that i left my bag and after walking 30 minutes to come retrieve my bag, it was handed to me at the door and I was told to leave (no using the toilet or resting on a stool for a few minutes). I felt very welcome on checking in but very unwelcome on checking out.
Inconvenience for backpacker ”
If you r backpacker, don't come
it's a nice place to stay and near gojo station. It's just 210 yen per person”
The building is old and unique for me
Very nice traditional Japanese house. Enjoy the environment. 5min walk from Gojo Station. Steep and narrow staircase. If you have big luggage, it may not be suitable. But 1 thing really need to improve is the kitchen facilities. Very Dirty glasses, bowls, utensils, oven etc... Broken chairs are still letting guests to sit. My hubby nearly fell from the chair. Please throw away the broken and change new chairs...
Beautiful hostel ”
It was beautiful and the location was ok. The staff was kind and helpful, but the kitchen and common area are right in front of the female dormitory so it might be uncomfortable for some people. The hostel was clean and warm, and the showers/bathroom were in good shape.
VEry beautiful place, the house has 180 years and it has a beautiful small garden. The staff is very kind and helpful. The beds are comfortable. In summer or spring should be beautiful and more enjoyable (november is cold, although the rooms have good temperature)
Great place for a single woman traveller ”
I stayed in the female only dormitory and my experience was very good. There is 8 beds in the dorm, but during my stay there was never maximum number of people in the room. The beds are big and comfortable, they are covered with a curtain so you have some privacy. There are 2 bathrooms and sometimes I needed to wait for my turn but I expected this to happen when I saw that the bathrooms are shared. It is understandable and to be expected that we can queue for a bathroom when we share it with 10 more customers. The house itself is an old style, traditional Japanese house. I personally loved the experience of staying in this old house. There are two gardens inside and a common space where you can stay until 23:00. And, most importantly, the staff is great! They helped me a lot, they were informative and very friendly :) I will come back! :)
Value for money ”
Rooms were small. We booked a room for 5pax . I do not recommend bringing 5 huge luggage as the room will be too squeezy. Not sure why there was such a huge table in the room when we cant eat in the room. Bring your own hair dryer as they lock up the hair dryer after 11pm. Otherwise, staff were helpful and friendly. Overall, it was a positive experience.
