The hostel was very easy to find. Also - we were worried that we might be arriving after reception hours, but the staff was very nice and helpful about it. The hostel itself was very nice and cozy, had a nice feeling to it. Also it was very clean. Free shampoo, soap and other toiletries were also a very nice bonus, especially for anyone traveling light. And the view from the porch! Simply amazing. If I ever come back to Aso I will check this hostel first, for sure!

Best guest House We had in Japan

The cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in anywhere, really friendly staff, and very easy to find out of Aso Station. Easy to get to a number of tourist attractions with busses leaving from the station. Also there is Onsen nearby and places to eat or buy your own food all within walking distance.

This is the best hostel i have ever stayed in. Clean, easy to find and great shared area. All the appliances are great quality. Herbs and spices in the kitchen, lots of showers and toilets. Better than staying in a hotel in my opinion.

this was my first time staying in a hostel and it was very pleasant experience. granted, i stayed in a regular room rather than dorm type accommodations. but i am interested in trying another hostel elsewhere sometime. also, most of the reviews i had read of aso base backpackers was right on the money. the staff were excellent and made me feel welcome and at home there. bottom line: i was very satisfied with my stay there.

I really love the atmosphere of the hostel. Everything is clean and tidy. I feel so comfortable during my stay. I stayed in the twin room and it was more spacious than i have expected or compared to other hostels in jp. The host is friendly and decorates the hostel so well. The open kitchen is well equipped. It's enjoyable staying there and I'll definitely stay there again! BTW, it takes only a few min walk from Aso JR station and around 10-15 min walk to local supermarket and daiso!

We really enjoyed our stay here. It exceeded our expectations in every way. We had a rental car, so it is hard to comment on location.... but if renting a car and visiting Mt. Aso, this is a great place to be!

I think the best guesthouse I've been!

Very stylish and new hostel, location is an ideal starting point for Aso. Staff could be more open, though.

Best hostel I've ever stayed in! Really clean and new. Kitchen looked more like a magazine kitchen than a hostel kitchen :) If you get the chance, stay there!!

The hostel is very close to the train station and convenient store. The toilet and bathing facilities are really clean. The design of bed is also very user friendly. Personal belongings and luggages can be placed nicely in the bed. Common room is very beautiful. The only bad thing is the rooms have no doors and are covered only by curtains. So it could be disturbing if you have a noisy roomate next door.

Pretty luxury place for a hostel. Everything is new, clean and cosy. Close to Bus and train station. I wish the dorms would have a door instead of a curtain, but still okay.

This hostel is immaculately kept! I absolutely LOVE the atmosphere created in the entry in common area and the ability to choose the privacy level of your accommodations! It is located right at the base of Mt Aso. If you stay on the road the the hostel is on you drive directly to the crater! For the purist, they have lots of maps and guides to get you there on foot! Excellent experience! You won't find cleaner showers anywhere!
