very friendly and helpful staff. No meals - but good restaurants nearby (with hints for the right choice by YH staff)

The owners were very helpful with recommendations and friendly. I liked it very much that there was a choice between shower and Japanese shower/bathtub.

Friendly, helpful owner, and great location! Ferry terminal, supermarket, souvenir shop, and restaurants are all within walking distance. The common room also has a deck right on the ocean!

I really enjoyed my stay at Miyanoura Portside Youth Hostel. The hostel is clean, easy to find, and is small enough that it creates a great atmosphere between its guests. There appeared to only be one staff member, but he was friendly and helpful, answering any questions we had. The hostel also provides a lot of information about Yakushima and recommendations for restaurants nearby. Although lockers are available for use (provide or buy your own lock), it seemd easy for anyone to just walk in.

Good place; only real complaint is that there wasn't a full kitchen, just toaster and microwave. Wifi was spotty the first night, otherwise fine. The manager was very helpful, even drawing a bath for me after each day of hiking. Miyanoura is fine for hiking access and for arriving/departing from Anbo - the buses will get you to the port and the Jomon Sugi.

Fantastic hostel - friendly staff, comfy rooms, great facilities, and good location right by the port made access to other parts of the island a breeze. Many thanks!
