We stayed in the end of June,2017. It was very hot and humid day, needed more air conditioner! I felt the air conditioner didn't work or it was very old so that couldn't send cold air. Anyway, this accommodation is very good! nice location! easy to get to The GEKU. And friendly staffs! I forgot the name but Hiro?Yos? was very nice! He helped us a lot. for sure We are coming back again!

We originally planned to stay longer, but left after the first night. We booked a private room, but were downgraded to the 10 bed dorm. First we were happy since some private rooms don't have windows, but the windows in the dorm were closed at night - oxygen deprived with 10 people sleeping. The staff had a few non Japanese members (volunteers I guess) who were incredibly annoying. Japanese culture is characterized by not drawing attention to yourself and respecting other people. These guys definitely didn't! Yelling the whole time (even in your face "arigato con sai mas" thinking that's funny?), playing a flute in the communal area where people were reading or calling family/friends. A few fellow Japanese travellers felt the same, but didn't feel comfortable complaining. Do yourself and your guests a favour and get rid of these guys

Dear Thank you for stay in Kazami Guesthouse. We apologized for changing your room from private room to mix-dormitory due to the full-booked reason. And window was closed because of the cold weather on that night. Really thank you so much for your understanding on this. Again we apologized for the noise. Our foreign helper already leave Kazami Guesthouse few days ago. We feel sorry for their behavior. Thank you for mailing us. So we know better how to improve and correct. Kazami Guesthouse will closed by the end of September/2017. Rebuilt on the same place and open by July/2018. We will be happy to meet and serve you again next year. Sincerely Kazami Guesthouse

Stayed two nights in February in a tatami room. The old building is well maintained with a lot of homey lively details around the public areas. Free tea and coffee always available and there are occasional events organized on the foyer. The mainstream young guests were going around well behaved with the facilities. Conveniently located at 5 minutes from the train station. Full of choices to the restaurant areas surrounding the hotel. Excellent for budget travellers but also a lovely experience offering pleasant moment during a stay not on a budget.

I love this place. Nice and friendly staff. They work at 4 PM. If you came early you can enter and left baggage by yourselves. Many people stay here. Not far from Iseshi station. From JR Iseshi station turn left walk to first section. Shared bathroom and toilets. They have only 2 bathroom at first floor and toilets every floor. Room enough for 3 persons that I stayed. free wifi. I visit here on 10 December 2016 cold weather in room.

Great location: 3-minutes walk from train station, 7 minutes walk to nearby temple. Nice common area, with neat decoration and full of lights for ambiance. Capsule bed had good curtain that provided total darkness and therefore helped sleep. Quite cold in common area. Bed sheets were clean, but capsule had lots of dust and hair from previous guests. Lots of mold on the ceiling of the shower room.

This is a type of guesthouse that is fairly common in Asia, Australia and Americas, but very hard to find in Japan. Which means,,, Reasonable price(less than 30US$)/ dormitory / sharing kitchen / English speaking staff /Free wifi. In addition, its only 5min walk to your destination(Ise Grand Shrine, Geku) Strongly recommended for foreign travelers but also good for Japanese youth.

Stayed there for three days. Oldest person there by a generation. Lively. Friendly. Welcoming. Had a ball. Was great location for visiting shrines. They offer dormitory or limited number of private rooms. Great place to hang out in living area for beer and conversation with guests.

Thank you for staying at GUESTHOUSE KAZAMI. Also thank you for your valuable feedback. Our guesthouse is used from guests who wide range of age groups and various nationality. So it is able to enjoy to communicate with other guests. We think it would be the part of precious memories in your trip. Our location is about 3 minutes by walk from JR and Kintetsu Ise-shi station. Also there is Ise grand shrine "Geku" about 5 to 8 minutes by walk from our guesthouse. We really welcome the guests who loves traveling and meeting with people as you anytime!! We look forward to having another opportunity to see you in the future!! Thank you very much!!!

Facilities provided to the guests can be enhance further.
