It was a good experience to stay.in a temple. The price is very fair, especially when we know prices in Mount Koya... I was the only guest, so it was relaxing! Far from all this touristic activity :) Good bike to borrow too!

Der Hostel liegt etwa 25 Minuten zu Fuß vom Bahnhof entfernt. Mit Koffer besser mit Taxi fahren. Ansonsten kann man von dort aus die ganze Stadt zu Fuß erkunden. Der Hostel ist sehr sauber und gut organisiert. Liegt in einem Tempel umgehend von Natur, also sehr ruhig. Eine tolle Erfahrung da anders als die üblichen jh in Europa.Man schläft auf tatami Betten,sehr bequem!toiletten und duschen sehr sauber. Die Betreiber des Hostels sehr sehr nett.Wir empfehlen diesen Hostel auf jedem Fall.

Sans doute l'auberge de jeunesse la plus atypique ! Elle est située dans un temple (ce qui fait d'ailleurs qu'elle n'est pas facile à trouver) et gérer par des moines. On dort sur les tatamis avec un oreiller de riz et il y a un onsen. L'ambiance est unique !

This hostel is located in a beautiful temple. It was a very nice experience and the first time for me to sleep on a tatami with futon. Thank you so much!
