Old townhouse has been restored into contemporary accommodation retaining its traditional Japanese style. Please take a note our building as it’s an old wooden house has no enough sound proof. All our facilities are on shared basis as we are designed with independent travelers and young backpackers in mind. We are a hostel and not a hotel or Ryokan. We are focused on giving you a fun and cheap way to travel, rather than providing luxuries. We hope you understand and enjoy your stay at U-En.
