Very near Kii-Katsuura Station but have to cross overhead bridge to pass the train station. More stairs at this minshuku as there's no elevator. Facilities are quite worn but clean. Wished that there's more privacy at the shared baths as the changing area is right next to the door that opens to the corridor. The bath water was quite good tho, with iron content. However no info on bathing etiquette provided so I suggest foreigners read up on Japanese onsen bathing etiquette if you are not familiar. My room faced the train station but I was not disturbed by noise. It was also well-insulated, I think, as I did not feel cold in the room even though the weather was chilly. Yukata provided (surprise). Breakfast was surprisingly good and filling. Minshuku's WiFi was miserable but luckily I was able to connect to Wakayama WiFi.

A good hotel for recommendations
A host family in a small, quite town. You have hot spring here to enjoy. Unlike in Tokyo and Kyoto where foreigners are everywhere, this hotel is in a small city welcoming people back from or prepared for hiking. The room is big and clean. Please relax your body here.

Excellent staying experience.
Quiet facility even it is very close to the train station and local bus station. Great Japanese style staying experience supported by very helpful English speaking staff (aka Mika San ... hope didn’t spell your name wrong :)). Breakfast is wonderful and well prepared by the kitchen lady. I also found from their library a very good older manga series which can’t be found in my country. Some local small family owned restaurants nearby provide good foods in a very reasonable prices too. A larger supermarket about 10 mins away has excellent choices of foods and ALCOHOL at a very very good price. Go for it if you are planning on going to visit this area.
