J-Hoppers Kumano Yunomine Guesthouse

Hongu

J-Hoppers Kumano Yunomine Guest house is located in Hongu, a 10-minute drive away or a 70-minute walk on the Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Route from Kumano Hongu Taisha Grand Shrine. The sleeping cabins are spacious and well laid out, you can easily bring your bag in with you. The onsens are wonderful, there are 3 (two indoor, one outdoor) and all are private and open all hours so you can go in as you please to whichever is free (the hostel was booked full when I was there and there was never a line to use them). The facilities are excellent for a hostel, well equipped kitchen, nice eating area, helpful staff. Really a great value for the area and amenities.

Ryokan Adumaya

Hongu

Set in Hongu, 8.7 mi from Hosshinmon Oji Shrine, Ryokan Adumaya offers accommodations with free WiFi and free private parking. Located directly opposite Yunomine Onsen, a world heritage site. The hotel building was beautiful, the evening meal was traditional Japanese (and very lovely), and the hotel had its own onsen, as well as being super close to Yunomine. The staff went out of their way to be as helpful as possible. Also, try their plum wine, it is stunning!
