8/10 Very good

日本人にもちょっと新鮮な不思議な空間 プライベートで利用したい
ゲストハウスというより個室。 隣の声はかなり聞こえてしまうのでちょっとドキドキする。 バックパッカーや友人、ファミリー向き。キッチン、レンジ、飲み物自由。 古い日本式家屋の居住まいだが、部屋にはソファーと二段ベッドがあるから、 外国人には新鮮さとある程度の快適さを味わえると思う。 暖かい季節なら、甲冑鎧も置いてある居間で情緒たっぷりなのも良いかと思う。 (冬は寒くて早く部屋にはいりたい)

Tager gerne tilbage
Fuldstændigt uforlignelig service. Damen der kører stedet er simpelthen så venlig, hjælpsom og opmærksom. Hostellet er udemærket med lækre både værelser og fællesareal, men man kunne overveje at medbringe egen hovedpude (den mellemfornøjede smiley under komfort er udelukkende pga. hovedpuden). Det ligger rimeligt tæt på alt i Himeji så det er også et stort plus. Endte med at booke en ekstra nat.

Totally recommend it!!!
Very, very friendly host with a very nice Kimono-Shop downstairs. The Kimono-Inn was clean and comfortable, you always felt at home. Totally recommend it for everyone! Additionally there is a diacount on the Kimonos from the Shop, if you stay in the Inn.

4人1部屋の男女混合ホステルのつもりで予約しましたが、実際に行ってみたら1部屋を1人で使わせていただけました!どうやら、1つ予約が入った時点で、たとえベットが余っていても予約受付を終了してしまうようです。(つまり、1グループで1部屋を占領できます!) ですので、周りを気にせず伸び伸びと過ごすことができました。布団もホステルでは珍しくとてもふかふかで、快適でした。このホステルを見つけることができてラッキーと思いました。 また、ホストが着物屋さんをやっているようで、つくりは和風で趣があります。ホストの方も優しく親切で、おすすめの姫路ラーメンのお店を紹介してくださいました。 Wifiが少し弱かったのが残念でしたが、最高のホステルです。

姫路城周辺の観光に便利な場所にあり、エコノミーでアットホームな宿。 旅慣れた外国人の長期滞在者が多いそうだ。 夜遅くまで飲みに行って宿に戻っても大丈夫な仕組みとなっている。
