Very noisy in the capsule dorms. Some people need to learn manner and not speak loudly in a dorm room at 7am. But the place is not that soundproof either. Not that you have to pay a higher price that usual one if you come from Hostelworld ... makes me regret not contacting them directly ...


I only stayed one night and took the slow ferry to Yakushima the next day, therefore the location is perfect, only a few minutes walk from the port. but also the cultural area is in walking distance, the city center with shops and restaurants is even closer and konibini is just around the corner. rooms are clean, not too big and beds have curtains to gain a little privacy, but only two showers alltogether. the staff is really helpful and takes time to chat with guests and give advice!


pin code to enter after 11pm at front door. but no door lock at dorms.


Value for money this is a hostel which you can use for the base purpose of sleeping. however the room was very hot even with all air-conditioning running! staff are friendly but but didn't add any value compared to a lot of other hostels around Japan.


Only stayed here one night but I wish I had more time. Staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on places to go. Quieter than a lot of other hostels but sometimes that's a nice change. Comfortable lounge area.


Very noisy, weird design of communal spaces


I only stayed there for a night. super close to the port, if ,like me, you're taking the ferry to Yakushima in the morning and staff was very nice^^


Wasn't there for more than 2 nights, but it was good, and comfortable, near the ferry landing to the vulcano island. Nice and clean, staff was helpful, they don't rent towels, you have to buy a small one, for some travelers it will be a minus to not have the possibility to rent towels.


Nice hostel in Kagoshia. Althought the weather was not the best, too cloudy, I would recomment to others to use this accommodation.


Ideal location for the port if you're getting the ferry to Yakushima...5 min walk. Only 10 minute tram ride to city centre. Local convenience stores, McDonalds and shops nearby. Hostel was friendly with good facilities....just needed to be cleaner in general. Capsule bed size was good. Better security needed


Very good place and staff! Recommended!!


Very nice place. Near to the piers and convenient stores. Roof top to hang up.


It was a very nice hostel where I felt very comfortable, but found it hard to meet new people. That may have been down to the people who were staying there at the time rather than the hostel itself however.


A nice simple hostel near the port in Kagoshima, excellent location if you're heading out to the islands. Staff are friendly and great facilities. the rooftop view of Sakurajima is amazing!


Great spot and excellent staff stayed 3 nights and went to yakushima both were awesome


Your wifi did not work. Also, the area where you take off your shoes smelled really bad. It was right beside the kitchen and showers. I felt dirty just sitting at the kitchen table because of the smell. Please make a shoe cupboard or box to keep the smell away. Thanks!


Great place to stay! The location was very good at a three minute walk to Dolphin port (the nearest location to see the sea and Sakura-Jima!) Could even see Sakura-jima from the rooftop of the hostel, which was also an awesome place to cill, socialise, have a snack etc. The dormroom was super clean. There was a great selection of all sorts of books in the common room! The shower rooms were provided with 100% natural soaps made of tree sap, which was a lovely surprise, and made the place unique:)


staff is nice, but consists of just one guy (as fas as i can tell). location is a bit off center but still walkable and very close to the hydrofoil ferry. i stayed on the second floor with showers on te third floor and the stairs considered 'outside.'


2nd time I have stayed here. Overall a reasonable hostel, very easy access to port. Not a bad common area downstairs.


Nice hostel. Facility show age. Charged more for using foreign based booking.
