An unforgettable experience
The temple is breathtaking . It is also a little more secluded than some of the other temple accommodations [though easy to walk too from the bus] which really gives the place an lot of charm. It is very easy to jump on the bus or even walk to Okunoin so the location is ideal. The rooms were comfortable, clean and in the authentic Japanese style. A lot of character. Be sure to witness the morning ceremony. However if you wish to check out early in the morning, don't forget to mention this to the staff the day before . Otherwise you wont be able to check out until about 7am.

If you are really into Buddhism then maybe the money and time to get there would make it worth it.
To be honest, Koya San is probably best left for a day trip. The site has a lot of history and parts are almost errie so it's worth visiting but staying in a so called temple over night wasn't really that different to staying in a ryokan but just more expensive and with an average vegetarian breakfast. I think only if you a specific interest in Japanese Buddhism would it be worth staying overnight.

Good value, some surprises though.
Nice cozy room and breakfast was pretty good. Would be good to warn guests before they reserve, that bathing and breakfast times are not flexible and that guests are expected to follow the temple schedule. Room privacy is minimal. A good experience but remember you're staying in a temple not a hotel!

Poor
We were in the new building of the temple, under the ground level so we needed the a/r all night long, maybe even cause of 24 hours of rain.The monks were smoking in the common area on the hallway (no so buddist people in my opinion),the bathroom was really old. The temple is good to visit but not to stay especially after the experience in Shojoin (more expensive for a good reason).The room had good size and ensuite anyway.

Near bus stop, Not too expensive
ใกล้ป้ายรถเมล์ แต่เป็นทางเดินขึ้นชัน ค่อนข้างเหนื่อย มีน้ำให้อาบแค่ช่วงเย็นถึงดึก แต่ถ้าเทียบราคากับวัดอื่นแล้วถือว่าคุ้มราคา ห้องพักกว้างดี มีน้ำอุ่น มีกาน้ำร้อนแต่ไม่มีที่ต้ม มีทีวี มีเครื่องปรับอากาศ ห้องอาบน้ำรวมค่อนข้างเล็ก กลางดึกเงียบสงบดี หลับสบาย พิธีสวดมนต์ตอนเช้าดูศักดิ์สิทธิ์ดี แต่ไม่เข้าใจเหมือนกันว่าทำอะไร บริเวณใกล้เคียงมีซุปเปอร์มาร์เก็ต กับร้านอาหารเยอะพอสมควร บรรยากาศดี ถ้ามีโอกาสก็จะกลับไปอีก

พักสบาย ห้องสวย
ห้องพักสบาย นอนวัด ควรจองก่อนล่วงหน้าเนื่องจากวันที่จองกระชั้นชิด รอเช็คอินเกือบชั่วโมงกว่า ถึงจะเรียบร้อย เช็คเอ้าท์ 9 โมงเช้า
