Typical backpacker style accomodation but my private room had an ensuite and there is a pool. The location is a bit out of the way though

Thanks for the comments. We are a little out of town -- but the closest accommodation to the free hot springs -- that's a real bonus.

Clean rooms. Good flatisaties, nice that family can have their own room together with bathroom it’s just a shame some of the stayers are loud by talking to each other loudly outside the doors and if they have a shower late or early in the morning you it’s a bit of a pain

Service fantastic, friendly and welcoming. Clean and tiidy and in a quiet area. Only issue was the single bed in room 14 where you could feel the boards of the base thru the mattress. It made for an uncomfortable and browkn sleep.
