Room a little smelly (musty) so we had to keep window open. Only one shared shower so a bit frustrating and we didn't shower because someone was in there for 30mins!! Silly really. Staff were lovely and good common room and kitchen facilities. Beds have thin mattress so not super comfy.
Well, it's not that great compared to many hostels I've been but it was also cheaper so i guess it is still good value fot your money! The staff was so so, quite bored, and atmospherr was given only by the guests... good pooint is the manga collection =) very good location close to the station!!!
The good: Location was EXCELLENT, a 2 minute walk from the main Kagoshima train station. Bedroom was comfy and I slept like a log. Sheets were clean but maybe not the duvet. The bad: Bad, dirty facilities! There is one shower for the whole hostel, and it has a black ceiling from the moisture. There are two toilets and one was broken but stuck together with tape. The staff weren't very friendly and when I asked them about the buses, they said "I don't know, try looking on the Internet".
Perfect location just behind the main station, couldn't get any closer! The staff are great, some speak almost fluent English, the others will try their very hardest to communicate and help you in any way. Very friendly and welcoming! Free washing!
By Japanese standards, the place is a dump. By international standards, the place is ok. It is fully functional, with two major issues. 1. Not super clean. 2. Next to the train line, so noisy. But it's cheap, so you get what you pay for. I'd stay here for a night passing through, but not really relaxing enough for an extended stay.

The staff were a bit aloof and the place could do with a clean. Usually those things don't bother me but I can imagine it would bother other people. For hostels in Japan Little Asia was below standard. The location was really great but it's not very well signposted.
The place was really dirty! The only clean place was the shower. The bed linen were not fresh, the floor was covered with dirt and the toilet at the station was much cleaner than the one in the hostel.
Nice little place, good value for money, excellent Wi-Fi.
My stay was comfortable but I thought the bathroom needed some more attention!.
the beds were in desperate need of padding, it was softer sleeping on the carpet then the timber bed. Pillows had to folded over 3 times to be of any use. window needed curtains or covers to keep out the cold & train noise.
