  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

First, it is a real traditional Japanese townhouse, and it is in the center of the old-town area, which makes it the perfect starting point for a night-stroll along the illuminated river and the old houses. It is also very much prepared for welcoming foreigners, the staff speaks fluent English, and are very friendly!

great start to our trip

Yuurin An is a guest house that caters to the young and young at heart. It's a notch above a youth hostel, but that is the western equivalent. It is excellent value for money and a great location. The staff in super friendly and it is a special experience to meet the guests and find out what they are in town for. It was our first night in Japan, and it was a super way for us to start knowing the country. Highly recommended if you are prepared for such a stay.
