Been to some unique places as youth hostels. This is another one of these. A youth hostel in a traditional temple. Great fun. All mod cons. Toilets and showers very nice. Rooms traditional mats on the floor with futons. A little sore in the mornings due to lying on the floor but the rooms were warm and spacious. Easy walking distance from town.

El albergue forma parte de un templo luego es un sitio muy especial,rodeado de templos,bosque y cementerios,todo muy zen...Se echa en falta la cocina pero hay agua caliente y <onsen> por la tarde,un lujo.Recomendable para gente tranquila.

Sistemazione molto buona sul peroso dei templi con parcheggio gratis. Alla reception parlano molto poco inglese. Difficile capirsi. Unico difetto i materassini per dormire che sono veramente troppo sottili. Buono il rapporto tra locato e prezzo.
