Close to Himeji Castle
Great for a short stay to visit Himeji Castle. It’s close to the castle which opens at 9:00 so you can sleep in a bit and still get to the castle for 9:00 when it opens if you want to avoid the crowds.

Nice hostel closed to the Castle and train station
When I arrived in a raining day, I was lucky to have the cash to pay the hotel. Now, the hotel indicated that there was no contract with Travelocity; therefore I had to pay 5,400 Yen for my two days stay. I thought that I had paid $14 a day plus tax and fee through my reservation with Travelocity credit card. Please check on this matter. I did receive a similar notice from a hostel in Kanazawa; however, when I arrived that they did not ask me for that cash. I guess that the credit card payment goes through.
