we stayed one night because of our flight the next morning. for one night it´s definitely okay to stay there. the staff is nice, and there is everything you need. cleanliness could be better though. However it´s good value for money.

had a good time at keramas, the stuff was very friendly and helpful. the location is great, not far from the center and literally right next to the port. i would stay there again.
If you don't mind a little dirt, this is your place. It's a pretty worn down building in a somewhat worn down neighborhood. But it's dirt cheap. There are about 100 pairs of shoes when you first go in. Female dorms have about 20 beds in three rooms. Squat toilet downstairs. Stray cats in area. 20 min walk to Kokusaidori shopping/resto area and closer to other restos.
It's a reasonably good place to stay. Staff are quite nice, location is ok (about 10 minutes walk from Miebashi) but the area is a bit shady looking (homeless guys sitting around in the street). There are no locks and no safety box to put your luggage, but Japan is safe anyway so it's not too bad. The beds are just wooden boxes with futons in and it can be quite loud at night. The common area is dirty with 100s of shoes blocking the entrance. But for 1200yen, it's not a bad experience.
This is definitely a social enviornment, so if you are looking to meet people, this is an ideal place to be. It is also in a good location, a 5 min walk to the port so it's a good place to base yourself as you move about the islands. It's at a really good price, but because of that don't expect anything great in terms of facilities and cleanliness. The place is a mess and for Japanese standards, not very clean at all. But if you don't mind that, this can be a good place to stay.
Amazing hostel! Best value for money in Naha, and walking distance from the port. Really nice and friendy staff, cool bedrooms, cozy common room and lots of fun with the staff and the other guests. If you are backpacking, choose this hostel. I wish I had stayed more nights!! Our short stay there (including a BBQ party in the rooftop's swimming pool) was awesome.
