Situated in the surprisingly interesting city of Beppu. Facilities are clean and good but not the best, however the kitchen and lounge/manga room are very good, both with large TVs. Various maps of staff-recommended onsen, site-seeing locations and restaurants are pinned up along the walls which were very useful. Good beach across the road and is close to some bigger beaches. Visit the Kannawa Jigoku, an experience unique to Beppu - also visit Cafe Green Spot, a short walk from the hostel.
The staff speaks amazing English and is extremely friendly. The PCs in the lobby were extremely useful. Also the free bike rentals were a nice touch. Best part about it was the in house onsen, only problem is that in the men's onsen there is no conditioner. The room was very spacious and the tatami floors were nice but my room had a very unpleasant smell that I could not get rid of. All in all, nice hostel! Cheap and friendly
Very nice 3 nights spent here ! We are very satisfied of this stay ! The only bad point was the weather :p ! The staff is sooo nice :D and the facilities are perfect too ! I definitivly recommand this hostel ! (The spa in the hostel learn you "how to onsen" like a japanese, perfect for the beginners)
We were so lucky to have found this hostel! First, the location is so convenient! Just 3 blocks from train station and super close to bus stops and all major attractions in Beppu! Second, cleanliness to very high standards! Third, staff was soooo friendly, even had a free Takoyaki BBQ for great socializing! Fourth, onsen in hostel very nice. Five, it is super cheap! Unbelievable value! Stayed in many hostels and this one is much better than even "higher ranking" hostels. Beppu's best kept secret

The level of cleanliness and attention to details, for japan standard, is definetly low. Only 1 shower per floor, and is not pleasant at all. Sure you have the onsen but it really has a bad look, poorly mantained and cold. Common areas are big enough but they still suffer from a general lack of taste. It is still a sound choice for the low price but it could improve a lot the quality of staying, with a few adjustment.
this was a really nice place with helpful staff and convenient location. the in house onsen was a pleasant treat making the place even nicer to stay. plus the staff were very friendly and helpful
A really nice location with even its own little Onsen. The staff speaks really good English and is very helpful.
Sweet as hostel really. Nice hot onsen.
Awesome staff who are able to give you suggestions on the best places to eat and see. Facility also has an onsen in house that you can access all throughout the night. There were only a couple showers, and no personal electronics outlets in bunk beds but didn't bother me though. Rooms had lockers for valuables, and beds were fine. Great social area that we used to hang out with other backpackers. Very relaxing place! Would def stay there again! Thanks!
Very well managed, good staff, good facilities.
Very nice plus that they have an onsen within the hostel which can save you money on paying for other onsens in the city. Pretty good location and very nice staff. If you end up on the last floor like I did and have a heavy bag you will need help since they have no elevators, but the view is amazing from the last room.
Less toilet than expected. Room clean. Kitchen room is OK.

Limit toilet here. But the other facilities is great.
Super friendly and helpful stafff. Location was great. Great atmosphere to meet people, yet quiet and peaceful as well.
So although the facilities need a bit of a facelift the staff are great and the common room is lively. Fun place to be.
Generally clean and tidy in all common areas. But my room has rotton wood odour. Kitchen is good, but not enough seat.
I really enjoyed my stay here, and I was happy that there was free parking, since we had our car. It is a really affordable place located very close to eating areas as well as some spas that are famous in Beppu. It is nice that there is even an onsen inside the hostel too. The sleeping area is a traditional Japanese style room with futon and tatami mats, and the futons are a little close to each other, but it was an overall pleasant experience.
Spa hostel is one of the best hostels in Kyushu region maybe even in Japan. The staff is the absolute best, they make you feel at home, are so much fun and are experienced travellers. One of the best parts of the hostel that it has its own little onsen with segregated mens and women baths. The vibe in Beppu is great! Its relaxed with nice people and plenty of stuff to see. You can spend spend some time at the beach, have a few beer in the common room or chill out in the onsen. Awesome place!!!
Great staff, everyone was so helpful and kind. Gave some great recommendations for Onsens and onward travel help. Would absolutely come back to Beppu and stay at this hostel.
