Good for location, beach is 20metres away and a large supermarket too. If you aren't fussy about hostels it's good ,if looking for something more secure and clean ....maybe not the place for you


cheap for budget but not very clean in room. far away from city center and monorail station.


The place was comfortable and the staff were very helpful and kind. We had a private room and felt very secure. The shower room is also the toilet but it was fair in size. Air conditioners are only used 8pm to 8am so it can be hot if you do not go out. The common space was well-kept and fun. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. For a private room I recommend it.

The 1 minute walk to the beach is the best thing about this hostel. The rooms were decent and staff helpful. It's close to the main street of Naha City but is far from the main attractions if you are just taking public transport , which is also expensive in the island. Overall, our stay was good and we can't complain.


staff are nice and helpful but there's a time limit on the air con so the rooms are very hot and stuffy until it can be turned on at 10pm. need to put a fan in the room. few minutes walk to the beach.


The location of the hostel was really good (airport, beach, supermarket, downtown and bus station super close) But... When we arrived we found 4 or 5 HUGE cockroaches in our room. Luckily, we got our room changed. However, that same night somebody checked in that room! The place was old and dirty, and the air-con only worked 10pm-8am in the room so it was impossible to be there during daytime. The staff wasn't helpful at all and they spoke little english (luckily we speak japanese :D)


I love Okinawa and staying here was a good base to have for daily activities. Very close to the 'beach' and short walk to the monorail and main entertainment street. I truly loved the staff here! They were so kind, helpful and we had many laughs together. I unfortunately had a bad experience in one of the rooms but the staff were so quick to help me out and allowed me to change rooms. There is minor damage to walls and floors that is easy to fix & would make the hostel feel a little more clean.


The staff was really nice and the location was perfect because we wanted somewhere by the beach.

- valuable (around 1200 yen per night) - 5 minutes walk to the beach and 10 minutes walk to monorail station - friendly staff and good atmosphere - it is suggested to provide lockers to the guests


Shu was super friendly and very relaxed 😃
