Well, this place was certainly not the highlight of our stay in Japan. It's guide run down, person at the reception was probably one of the only unfriendly people we met in Japan and the toilets and shower were probably after the war era without any maintenance. Kitchen was a dirty mess as well. If you don't have any other place to spend the night, I guess it is manageble, room looked sort of clean, but we changed our mind of staying a second night.
Not the cleanest but close to the main station. Staff was always like hurry up and check out. Not much of a place to meet fellow travelers a quite place.
Basic but unbeatable with free laundry laptops, & excellent friendly helpful staff.
Great location (beside the tracks outside West exit) but hard to find due to ridiculous sign posting. Halfhearted attempt at atmosphere. Owners rather be somewhere else. Basic but decent enough. Clean room and nice towels. Very nice hot shower.
The hostel is very close to Kagaoshima Chuo Station, it's only a 3 minute walk. I stayed 3 nights in the female dorm room with a/c for 1500 Yen a night. An incredibly good deal! The room was clean and there are lockers. There is free WiFi, free laundry, a dryer for 300 Yen, a fully equipped kitchen and a common room. The staff is okay, and I met many travellers from all over the world. I had a good time at Little Asia Guesthouse.

Cheap and cheerful! Great location - close to the train station and easy to find. The rooms are air-conditioned but are definitely on the small side. Biggest downside is that there are only 2 toilets and 1 shower for the whole hostel, so be prepared to queue.

Had some little problem with finding the spot, but still, good location. Place have everything you need if you are staying for one night, but probably staying longer may be not so comfortable. Bad thing - just one shower. Good thing - laundry room.
There are only 2 toilets and one shower that everyone is expected to use. We were also not made aware of what time checkout was so we had to rush to get our things packed and leave when we were asked to vacate the room by the manager. There is at least a common area where you can make food for yourself as well as have free tea and coffee.
I had a very comfortable stay, a little tight on luggage space in the 8 bed dorm but not a big problem. Very conveniently close to the station and plaza. Staff were very nice. My only complaint is that in such a popular hostel, having only one shower is a bit of a problem, particularly in summer.
