It was a very budget hotel - good for a night's stay Toilet and bathroom were very small. The guest-house keepers were kind and showed hospitality. It only opened after 1600. If you arrived before 1600 and would like to leave your backpack here, sorry~~~ Overall, I recommend this one if you only stay Himeji for a night.

The hostel is located between Himeji Station and the Castle. A very good location for sightseeing. Its squeezed between shops on the covered shopping street so if you like people watching this place is great. The place is pretty quiet after the shops close down in the evening. Small bedroom space (just enough to walk between the beds) and there...

Decent comfortable bed, staff was very friendly and helpful. But the place was too packed and too many beds in one room which made it difficult to sleep. there was a massive obese guy in the adjacent bed that snored very loudly who affected my sleep. So I was not very happy. Avoid the 12 or 16 bed room as...

This is a very low budget place. I meant it is not just the price, but also the place and service. They have one private room only, the rest of them are dorms with a lot of bunk beds in just one room, The room looks dark because they have partitions among the beds, top and bottom part of bunk...

I really liked this hostel. It's a great location and had a really warm & welcoming atmosphere. When I stayed there was a real mix of Europeans, Japanese and Taiwanese, all sharing food and stories. Like many guest houses it is a bit cramped when full, yet good beds and space for luggage and run by a lovely lady who...

We stayed one night at 588 GH during our journey accross japan inTrain! It is convenient and pretty clean! The people were nice and when they saw we were a couple they move us on an individual room even if we booked for a shared room! But it was quite busy, it looks like more to me like a juvenile...

Stayed there in May and by far the worst accommodation in Japan. Nothing like the pictures on the net. Dirty, noisy, no way of locking the door in the "Private Room" - you could not leave anything in your room as you could not shut it from the outside. Dirty rooms and bed "linen" was awful and everything felt unclean....

My friends and I spent a night in the dorm here to visit the castle. The location was fantastic, at the top of an interesting shopping arcade, right next to a square with local amusements and food stands, and most importantly just off the doorstep of the castle. We arrived just after midday to find no-one in, and only managed...

The hostel is near the himeji castle, station and inside a long gallery with shops of all kind! Staff was kind and the mixed dorm was well-equipped too. A pity that the only-girl's room is in a separate building, 1 min away walking. Overall, very recomendable!

I booked this hostel to spend the night nearby the castle to get the privilege of Himeji. Only location is a strong point of this hostel, but condition cannot meet the expectations. If you are very limited budget and want to say hi to the castle, please book this hostel. If you don't, find somewhere else. That's all from me
