Do not stay here. It's right along one of the main trucking routes through town; they will keep you up at night. You have to change between shoes and slippers to go between floors. Nothing else particularly bad, but nothing particularly good either. Stay somewhere esle.
Great chilled out place and very reasonable charges (I had a single room). After a very short tram ride, this place is easy to find and super convenient for anyone accessing the ferries for Yakushima.
Nice place, especially since its so cheap! Do bring earplugs in the dormitory though, traffic can be a bit loud.
Really nice hostel. Only a 10 minute walk from the sakurajima port. I'd recommend this place.
Fantastic view over Sakurajima from balkony and roof top. Clean, large and nice room. The stairs were a bit steep and hallways narrow, making carrying luggage to our room somewhat difficult. Nice and clean facilities. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Really great place, with friendly, helpful staff, a lovely atmosphere, very reasonable rates. I will certainly stay here if I ever come back to Kagoshima.
Friendly staff and the manager speaks good English. There were a lot of Japanese guests there when I stayed so a good opportunity for gaijin to meet with Japanese travellors.
The staff was prob the most helpfull I ever met. The location is close to the main trainstation and even closer (5 min on foot) to the ferry terminal.
There are so many shops and restaurant, close to the ferry tarminal I think it is good location. The staff was very friendly. But The dorm room was shabby and I thought that there were few shower rooms for the number of the hostel guests.
a well thought out hostel, and well priced. the staff were friendly and helpful, with good english skills. deluxe dorm beds were roomy, though the futon may be a bit thin on a hard floor, without a tatami under it. still, i slept fine. kitchen and bathroom facilities were clean and functional. the rooftop terrace is good for smokers, and you can see sakurajima from there. good common room downstairs with PCs and a separate smoking room. i would stay there again.
Nice hostel in a good location. All the staff is friendly and helpful. Good value for money
Good no-frills hostel with all the basic amenities. The only thing I'd hold against it is that there's a smoking room next to the common room and the smell of smoke spreads into the common room. It does vibrate little from the traffic but it's not very much, and sound isolation is excellent. Overall, good.
No lift for a house with 5 floors? No public transportation nearby at all? No wifi on each floor except reception? It's even claimed valid in the description! So disappointed !
The location of this hostel is honestly not the greatest. It's a bit out ofbthe way from main public transportation routes. The facilities are not the greatest from what iveI've seen in Japan. The whole building shakes when truck drives by, so I was waken numerous times during my stay. With that being said, the staff are very friendly.and chilled. One staff can even speak chinese fluently. They were happy to help me when I ran into trouble with my next hostel reservation.
A nice hostels in Kagoshima. Very close to the port so it's very easy to visit Sakura-jima if you are staying here. It's a bit of a walk but the location is very nice. The rooms are very spacious and the staff are helpful. The bar makes for a great hangout and a good place to meet locals and other travelers.
great atmosphere, great location, nice staff
This is the first hostel I've ever been to (and I would guess that I've stayed at about 75) that neither gives you a towel nor allows you to rent them. You have to buy one!!! It's only 300 yen for a small towel, but still it is quite annoying. Otherwise, great location for those taking the ferry or hydrofoil. The place is clean and secure. The staff will answer your questions, but they won't go out of their way to offer up lots of information unless you ask them specific questions.
Super convienent location five minutes from ferry terminal. Great value. A/C in the room was a big help! If that isn't enough there is a beer vending machine. I can only recommend this place.
Better location than expected with it being 3 mins away from Dolphin Port - nice little shops/cafes and foot onsen - and therefore also close to ferry ports to take you to Yakushima and Sakurajima. Tenmonkan is only 10 min walk away, loads of good restaurants there. The staff were great, enthusiastic and knew good places to go, and good tips for hiring bikes on Sakurajima. Showers were clean, and kitchen facilities good. I would definitely stay there again.
