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 😃

The only thing that was bothering us was the construction work outside our window. Otherwise we had a great time staying at your place!

Perfectly adequate accommodation if you need somewhere cost effective to stay while you explore Naha - close to restaurants, supermarket and a small beach. It's also relatively close to the metro rail and ferry terminal areas for access to islands. Good communal areas if you're keen to meet other travelers. We marked it poor for security as the outer door was not locked overnight. However, the area seemed very safe in the short time we were there.
