Really enjoyed my one night staying at the kamakura guesthouse. The staff were helpful and spoke good English. Liked meeting Sana and Hee and chatting with them. I left my bags before checkin and Sana gave me the rundown about what to do. The location is suburban, very residential, not a lot of restaurants nearby but it's right by a...

A great place for backpackers and people travel alone. If you like traditional Japanese house, this is a must-stay hostel. Tatami, stove and friendly staff make you want to stay here for a long vacation. People from everywhere will share food and travel experience together in the night. Of course it's a hostel so there might not be fancy rooms...

The hotel situated 15 minutes from the main station of Kamakura, yet there's quite a number of buses that will take you there. You won't get lost since the hostel itself is a well known places. There's a police station adjacent to the hostel neighborhood and as well as drug store and fashion outlet which operated until late at night....

“If you intend to stay here, be mindful that this place is NOT a hotel, so do remember to bring your own towel. Alternatively, the guesthouse will give you a small towel for just 200yen. It is also not a very big guesthouse, so best not to bring big luggage bags.”
