The guesthouse is as everybody raved about. Comfy, new and rather convenient. However, the information on the rooms/dorms are inaccurate and that is rather unfortunate. For example, I had found out about this guesthouse on jalan.net and on the website, it stated that the female dorms (max. 2 persons) which gave the idea that there is a female dorm of 2 beds only and the rest of the options were male dorm, private tatami mat room and a mix dorm. Being a single female traveler, I reserved a bed in the female dorm, thinking that it was only a 2 bed-der but after I had checked in, it was a six bed female dorm instead! In fact, the options on hostel world was also inaccurate, there was an option of a 4-bed female dorm when there was none! This inaccurate information display was disturbing especially from a guesthouse in japan. Questions were asked about this misrepresentation of information at the guesthouse but an equally confusing answer was given!
All in all, although the guesthouse is comfy, trendy and clean, the misrepresentation of information given was a letdown.
