I had a good time at Osaru-no Oyado. I enjoyed meeting fellow travelers in Okinawa. The temperature of the shower water would fluctuate a little (more so that any other shower I`ve used in Japan), and the female dorm is a bit crowded, but that actually did not bother me. The kitchen has plenty of space, so several people can cook at once (experiment with Okinawan ingredients!)
I had a wonderful time in this hostel! Even though it wasn't peak season and the hostel wasn't so full, everybody was really friendly and helpful, from the owner to the guests. From the closest station, it's about a 10 minute walk, and some 25 minutes from Kokusai Doori. The owner gave me a ride to the airport, and I'm really thankful for that ^^ If I ever go back to Okinawa, I'll certainly stay in this hostel again.
I have fun and feel comfort in the hostel, it is a nice to take a rest, I will come back again.

This is a really good place to stay, if you are tight on money. It's at a good location, not far from the port and the monorail station. I stayed in the 8-person female dorm, and it was cozy. The beds were comfortable, and they each had a curtain for added privacy. The owner is very nice, and his English is really good. We all went out for dinner and drinks on the last night of my week-long stay. As a solo traveler, this was an awesome place to stay.

Hardest "bed" I ever slept on -- felt like a thin blanket on wood planks. Mildew on bed curtains. Need a sign for main building -- the only sign is on men's dorm with no check-in. However, super-friendly and helpful staff, nice common room with TV and alcohol vending machine, kitchen seemed very nice and stocked with appliances/dishware although I didn't use it. Main downtown only 10-20 minutes walk, same distance to airport train. Beach nearby. With a few renovations, I'd give it 100% rating.
It is in a good location. THE lady was nice, but couldn't speak any English. It's not far from downtown, which is convenient. The male dormitory smells really bad and it's not clean at all. It was okay here, but I wouldn't stay here again.
First of all, I would not recommend staying in Naha anymore than necessary. Just a big overdeveloped city with not Much to do. The hostel was ok, the staff was helpful and it has all the basics that a traveller would need. The beds are very uncomfortable and the room was very hot at night. The facilities are a little worn down but for the price that is understandable. I think it would be okay to book here for the night, but if I were to stay in Naha for several days I'd book somewhere nicer.
Great place. Great location. Beds were hard but no issues. Friendly staff
The staff here was one of the friendliest I've ever met. Imai-san (the host) was great and even took us out to a live Okinawan music show that was all you can drink and we all had an amazing time. I had an amazing time and would stay again!
The hostel is located a few minutes away from the harbour where a selection of day trips to the nearby islands is available and about 15 minute walk away from the main shopping/entertainment street. The rooms and the common areas are spotless clean and well looked after. We stayed in the place for 4 nights and had an absolutely fantastic time. Thank you to Seishu Imai for the amazing stay!
