    The most stylish and full of character guesthouse I’ve ever been to in Japan. The owners are the nicest people and they helped me with everything. Really comfortable and perfect for a long stay!

    Staff is nice and room is big, simple cosy Japanese style room, i like the common area which is really stylish and nice to have a cup of coffee, can find all the things you need there! Theres elevators provided, so not a big problem even if you have suitcase :)

    Location is a little bit far from the station (1.5km), need to take a bus for ~5mins, from bus stop walk around 3mins to the guesthouse.

    Every staff is very friendly. You can find everything in the kitchen. We like the stylish bar.

    I really like the bunk beds, the curtains they, the light and sockets at each bed. The bar, lounge and common areas were cozy and stylish and I love how accommodating and friendly the entire staff was. The place was so aesthetically pleasing. I was EXTRA HAPPY when I realized that they had shampoo, conditioner and body wash in all the showers for free. I think previously they didn't and I was worried about that, but when I went there they did and that really made the stay perfect for me. They also have a fridge where you can keep your food and a microwave, both of which are found on the same floor the rooms are in. They also had a functioning kitchen downstairs. I also liked how comfy their pillows were and how clean everything was. They cleaned every day. The location is great, there's a bus stop just 3 minutes away and you can go to the JR station or the Nankai station. There were also many eateries around and the staff really help you out in getting familiar with the area. I also like that there was a sentou (traditional public bath house) just across the street. I'm sad I didn't get to do but oh well, I'll try again next time. The internet was decent too. I could stream netflix or youtube on my laptop with not problem. I think you get more than what you pay for with this place.

    Nothing really. Oh, I wish they had bidets in all the bathrooms. They only had one in the ground floor bathroom. Other than that everything was perfect.
