The hostel is litlle but very nice, only ten guests. The amazing of the stay is the friendly staff, you feel like if you were at home, every night there are activities you can join for free. It was a great experience staying there, I would repeat if I were again in Kanazawa.

We really loved staying at Guest House Pongyi! The house is ancient and with character, is pretty close to the main train station and in a quiet street. Masaki and Maru welcomed us with tips and handy information to help us visiting Kanazawa, and we really appreciated it. We'd love to come back to Kanazawa, a charming town, and we'd...

A wonderful staying in Kanazawa. Masaki has welcomed us in his little pension with kindness and joy, giving us advises on how to enjoy this beautiful town. In the evening we joined him and the other guests at the hot pot party. A truly Japanese experience that made my visit in Japan unique. We stayed in the private room, sleeping...

Having stayed in hostels, guesthouse and hotels all over the world, I can safely say I have never stayed anywhere that can match Pongyi for going the extra mile to make a stay that bit more bit special and making you feel part of the family!
