The staff was unfriendly. The private room for me and my two friends were too small. The location might be good.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Be sure to fix the door leading to the dormitories. The doorknob came off a couple of times.


Don't stay at this hostel for any other reason that it's convenient location, since it is easily accessible by the monorail. The staff is generally absent completely and otherwise unwilling to help. You will feel like you are staying in an empty house. The airco is paid by the hour, the room is very small and hot and the common room is in the middle of the hostel. Sleeping will be difficult with the noise that tends to be made by the other visitors in the middle of the night.


We stayed in a double room, which was comfy and clean, the facilities were fine and the staff friendly. The only issue we had was that we wanted to leave our bags in the hostel in the morning before we checked in, but there was no staff around to be able to do so (reception opens at 11am). If you're in the same situation, go to the tourist information office on the main street and they'll be able to point out lockers in the ground floor of the shopping centre across the street.


Very central location just a 5 minute walk to the monorail which takes you to the airport within 15 minutes. Very friendly and helpful owners. Lovely clean bright room, quiet and Brompton bike friendly! Cafe style dining room, two PC`s with internet access and laundry facilities, perfect for the independent traveller.


I have stayed in Hostels in Over 30 country's and this one was great! Good value for money with free internet access and wifi, Nice little extras such as free shampoo soap's even Laundry soap powder and fabric conditioner. Owner Is a really friendly American who has lived in Okinawa a long time and will give you all the advice you need, he also has a bar downstairs from the hostel with a fantastis variety of local japanese drinks through to good Single malt Scotch. I would stay here again.
