Kanazawa, Guesthouse, Guest House Pongyi, Hostel






Welcome to Pongyi!
Pongyi is a guesthouse(hostel) aimed for short-stay budget travelers and backpackers. Pongyi is especially suited for those travelers looking for more atmospheric and authentically Japanese accommodation.

It is the first hostel available in Kanazawa, one of the oldest cities in Japan. Kanazawa suffered no damage during the Second World War which ensured the survival of its rich cultural heritage.

The guesthouse is within walking distance of Kanazawa Station and located by the beautiful Kuratsuki canal. All of Kanazawa’s sights are easily accessible from the guesthouse’s central location.
As a cozy little guest house Pongyi is clean, inexpensive and comfortable, with 2 dormitory style rooms and a Japanese style tatami-room. We look forward to having you as our guest!

*100 yen donation to aid children in Asia is included in the price.


  • 7 minutes walk to the nearest Kanazawa Loop Bus stop (access to all major sights).

  • 20 minutes walk to Kanazawa Castle Park and the adjacent Kenroku-En Garden, perhaps Kanazawa’s best loved sight and among the top three most scenic gardens in Japan.
  • Located very close to a variety of restaurants (including Yakitori, etc.) and supermarkets.
  • 1 minutes walk to the nearest convenience store.
