8.8 Review score

the merit is also shortcoming, due to just besides the railway line. the noise always make the trouble, I was waked up several times in the night. So If the owner consider the material of sound insulation for wall, window or curtain that would be perfect.
the location is very good, 1 minutes far away the station. And the breakfast like Mama's cooking, strongly recmmond!

Good Stay with an Outdoor Onsen
No lift. You need to carry the luggage up yourself The public hot shower was working intermittent. Freezing cold during winter month.
Beside Shirahama Station but not noisy. Approximately 3 mins walk. While the external does not look impressive, the internally was cosy. The private outdoor onsen and bathroom, was quite an experience but not suitable for those with children (and possibly some adults). Shirahama can get very windy with an outdoor temperature of 1 - 2 deg C (or lower) in winter month.

Beautiful,quiet room beside train station with wonderful private outdoor bath on verandah.
Due to a typhoon our train to Shirahama was cancelled. Our hostess waited out the front to greet us when we arrived 4 hours late on the first train running. Lovely room with beautiful private outdoor bath as shown in the photos. Lovely breakfast.

The bus to station terminates early in the evening. Restaurants are a little far.
Like the living room with TV. There is hot water. It is very close to the train station.

Skip the private bath and breakfast
Firstly, it is not close to any food. The last bus that runs from the main central area back to the stations is at 7 something pm. This is a problem if you would like to have dinner late, or explore the attractions in the evening, especially sunset at Engetsuo island. However, busses do run from the station to the main attractions as late as 10pm, this means even if you arrive later, you can still catch busses to hotels near the beach and central area . I suggest downloading the bus timetable first before planning accomodation. Secondly, contrary to the reviews, this place is quite dirty. I got the room with the private bath and it was slimy and gross at the bottom. I even had to put my own bedsheets on the futon. The room looks ok but there isn't the nice tatami smell in usual Japanese rooms. I had stayed in even cheaper minshukus and they were much cleaner than this. There was a thick dust layer on some surfaces. The futon was not comfortable and I couldn't sleep well. Thirdly, food for breakfast looked cute, but I really didn't like it. It was mostly processed food like hotdog, canned corn soup, ready made shredded veg that I could have bought from the supermarket. Lastly, if you would still like to stay here, I suggest getting the cheapest room and skip the private outdoor bath and breakfast. This place is only good for cheap accomodation and no frills.
The staff was nice. Right next to the station so its convenient if you are arriving late or checking out in the morning. Provided with green tea and yukata in the room.

Great place to stay before Kumano Kodo
Everything was good
Lovely little stopover before starting the Kumano Kodo Trail. The owner gave me detailed information about how to get there from Osaka Airport and also how to organise starting my walk at Takijiri Oji. The traditional Japanese breakfast was lovely and served exactly on time. Shirahama is a cute little town. Next time I'll stay an extra day so I can see the Pandas at Adventure World.

Friendly and cosy accomodation
The private outdoor onsen pool to the room and the great breakfast prepared. The owner is very helpful though she did not understand English. The location is very convenient for those taking JR,its less than 5min walk .Not much noise from the JR station.
