    Tayama JR station is nearby also the FamiMart all are within 2-3mins walk. The hostel is very cosy&warm and the decoration is very sweet. We had a good time there. The only thing to improve I think is no heater in the toilet so u have to go quick^^

    Location was prime - quick 5 minute walk from JR Takayama and Nohi Bus Terminal and another 5 to 10 minute stroll to the center of the historic district ("downtown") where all your main cultural attractions and restaurants are located. There are also loads of convenience stores and restaurants near that train/bus station. The guesthouse is clean and the host does an excellent job getting you familiar with the area! He gave me loads of recommendations for the major attractions and for his favorite restaurants/cafes in the area. The hostel itself is in a very traditional wooden house, so while the accommodations aren't fancy by any means, they are functional and gives you a great opportunity to stay in a traditional machiya. Although the shower is a bit dated, the upstairs bathroom and sink are clean and modern, and even provide face wash/toner for guests (and of course a hair dryer which is standard in Japan)! Beds are a traditional futon. Because its a traditional wooden house, the house can get VERY cold during the winter, so just be sure to turn on the heater in the room when you're inside. A small locker for valuables is available for each guest as well. Small hand/face towel provided at check-in but no full body towels. There is a small kitchen downstairs for basic use (microwave/cutlery, small stove, electric kettle). Check-in and checkout was seamless. You can store your luggage after check out for free. Highly recommend!

    N/A everything was great.

    The staff is suuuuper nice and kind! They will help you with everything! It has an amazing location near the station! Just 2 blocks! So you can visit Shirakawa or either Takayama city :D It was a little cold in the night so they gave us some warm pouchs to warm the futon that was a plus. The japanese style room it's so cute! But all the house it's beautiful, it has it's traditional japanese style

    I've sleep in ther futons before but this one was a little rigid. Still I could sleep comfortable :)

    staff are so kind, approachable and helpful. Location is near bus terminal going to Shirakawa-go. Train station is also near the guesthouse. Convenience store is just a short walk away. I loved my stay.

    There is no curtain on the upper part of deck.

    very friendly staff, they would always ask you and talk to you in a friendly way which made us always feel safe and comfortable. all necessary needs were easily available and offered. it was the best place to stay as it was very near to the bus station and very near to everything else.

    Nothing! We had a blast staying in the place. we felt sad to have spent only 2 nights. all the people we met there were new found friends who made it a memorable stay.
