        Great location. Very helpful staff. Nice neighborhood with good selection of restaurants and shops but not as commercial as the Kamakura City Center.

        The staff knows English and super super nice. He even gave me 90 degree bow when I left the hotel. I guess that is their own attitude. Clean with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, towel, toothbrush, toothpaste provided. They also has dyson hair dryer!!! The house is stylish with colour tone of black. There is also a small exhibition. quite fashionable.

        Hard, uncomfortable bunk bed”

        Great location, but bed was very hard for this sore traveler, and the downstairs bathroom was inconvenient. Also, there was not room in the shower stall to get dressed in private. An opaque panel separating the two shower/prep areas would be greatly appreciated. I only saw 1 toilet for several beds; in high season, it is probably not advisable to stay here.

        Un bel hôtel très bien situé près de la plage et de la gare de Hase. Très pratique donc. Personnel très accueillant et très gentils avec de bons conseils. En revanche, les murs des chambres sont en papier de riz et laissent son passer beaucoup le bruit des voisins ce qui peut être assez inconfortable. De même il n’y a aucun rideau et lorsque le soleil se lève vers 5h00 du matin, c’est dur. Enfin, une porte à la salle qui a le seul lavabo de l’hôtel serait bienvenue.

        가마쿠라 해변에 위치한 최고의 게스트하우스!”

        고풍스러운 분위기의 젠 바구 게스트하우스와 매우 친절한 스탭분의 안내. 우연찮게 인원이 별로 없어서 4개의 침대가 있는 방을 혼자 쓰게 되어 매우 넓게 썼습니다. (굳이 인원이 다 차있더라도 공간도 넓직하고 건물 자체가 신식건물이라 깨끗합니다.) 가마쿠라 해변가에서 걸어서 5분거리라 해변가에서 수영도 하고 돌아올때 편했고요. (별도로 운동시설이 안에 있고 시원한 정수기가 배치되어있었음) 기차역까지 10분거리, 친절하게 메일로 사진이 담긴 위치도 알려주어서 방문하기도 쉬었고요. 주변에 볼거리도 많아서 좋습니다. (가마쿠라 번화가와 에노시마섬의 중간지점) 강력추천!!~

        Хозяева внимательные, заботятся о своих гостях. Немного сложно найти путь в отель. Отель находится не в самой Камакуре, надо ещё ехать от станции Камакура до станции Хосе на местной электричке за 200 йен в одну сторону ( на 2- их человек 800 йен в обе стороны).
