I stayed three nights and it seemed like a well-run, clean hostel. The location is good for visiting beautiful Sakurajima but the traffic outside shakes the building at night. The atmosphere was safe and welcoming, and there were nice communal spaces.

The cheapest hostel I have encountered so far in Japan, but you get what you pay for. The dormitory is packed and the air in the morning is terrible.

Thank you for staying in Green Guest House. We’re sorry that couldn't give sleep tight for you. We use air-conditioner in the male dorm usually. But some guests turn-up temperature than present one. Because very cold at that night. We will try to think improvement of service including way of heating and ventilation and everyone have great time in our hostel always. Thank you for your valuable comment. Hope to see you again. Thank you.

The place was fine, good location for the port and right at the top of the main street so good for shopping. A bit awkward having the main common area right on the bottom floor so if we wanted to hang out we mainly stayed in the kitchen. Also the building shakes when cars drive past so at night it feels like constant tiny earthquakes. But I soon got used to it and could sleep fine :)

For what you pay this hostel is really good, The location is good in terms of dolphin port and sakurajima ferry. The beds were very comfortable and the curtains provide privacy, however the beds shook and that was kind of scary. The kitchen and lounge area and facilities were good and staff were helpful.

Arrived with nobody there but was able to get in quite easily. Good location with an awesome view of sakurajima and close to the streetcar station and port.

Got a twin or double private room. The room is set up like a traditional Japanese inn, with bamboo floors and sleeping on mats on the floor. Our room had a nice little balcony and we could see the volcano from it. Shared bathrooms were a bit lacking - only one toilet for our floor, and showers (2) were on another floor - however, we never had to wait. Good wifi connection

Thanks for coming out to us when we were lost. Very close to the port. Pity about the unavoidable traffic noise.

Good place to reach Sakurajima, thus the hostel is very close to the street and there is quite much of noise. Everything quite good. A lot of space in "capsule" dormitory. City center is also close to reach.

Excellent. Terrace with a view of the Sakurajima volcano. Located near the harbor, making it an excellent base for a Yakushima trip. Can't think of anything to complain about.

Lovely guesthouse, warm reception at the front, lots of people chilling out and watching Manga. Wellstocked kitchen laundry and shower area, clean too. Dorm was clean, sheets were clean and though abit squished with everyones bags otherwise had a partition for each bunk and a night light.

So close to the main station only 5-10 minutes walk. It's clean and comfortable and the staff has lots of information available about the area. Friendly and safe.

Only spent one night here, but it was clean and quiet and the staff was helpful.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, tidy rooms and showers, nice common area, very close to the ferry terminals and dorms provided with dividers that provide some privacy. I did really have pleasant stay and I’d probably stay again if I go back to Kagoshima.
