Hotel Review - K's House, Mount Fuji

Another few minutes have passed, the car to pickup us up arrived just outside the Information cabin. A lady was driving the van and we were welcome as we get into the oddly small vehicle. One family was with us in a ride to the hostel. It took about 10 minutes to reach the get there and everyone was busy doing their own business.

View outside our room window.

A pile of slippers greeted us in front of the hostel. We are to choose which one to use and shoes are supposed to be placed inside a designated cabinet located on its right. We picked ours and immediately went for a short welcome greeting from the receiving staff. I just love their area, it was filled with maps and different currencies donated all over the world who came to visit and stayed in the hostel. Maps are pinned with all kinds of colors as well. Man, this hostel has served an overwhelming number of guests, especially from the Philippines!


Our key was handed over after the short briefing of the parts of the house. We had Room 201 for the night. It was a first, the room is huge! We stayed in 4 hostel/hotel in Japan and this was the most spacious one. The hotels, especially in Tokyo are so small. The rooms are just basically bed and toilet. We booked this private room and surprisingly it was large enough to accommodate 4 or even 6 guests in it. It was a traditional Japanese room with a Japanese center table. The blue/white checkered bed mattresses were place at one corner of the room together with the bed sheets, pillows and towels. If I have known, I could've left my shampoo and conditioner at home. There's always a bottle of shampoo and conditioner in every hostel we stayed in Japan. And they smell terrific too! The room is equipped with a fan, a heater and a TV.


The common toilet is located just outside our room. For Men and for Women. There's also a washing machine where you can do your laundry. One thing I learn in Mt Fuji, they want you to put your used tissues in the toilet bowl, not in the trash bin, but in the toilet bowl and then you may flush! I saw these posts thrice, from this hostel and 2 from public toilets, only in Mt Fuji. 


The staff are very approachable. They are travelers too. You can see their profiles in the wall at the lobby, with a short description and what countries they've been to. You can ask anything especially where to eat and where to go. You can also refer to this snapshot of the bus timingif you want to go around Mt Fuji.


The kitchen is complete with a large refrigerator. 2 dining tables, the other one is a center table with couches encircling it. 


I apologize for my badly taken photos, I didn't realize it was this bad until I saw it again.

Above all, we will definitely come back to this hostel if given a chance to visit Mt Fuji again. We will probably stay longer because the hostel is clean and affordable. Check for the prices.
