Great Guest House! The family is very friendly and very helpful. The house looks brand new and the beds are just amazing! The family offer diner for only 350 yens. The house is in the aso area but thanksfully not in the touristic area. I had a great time there and would definitely recommend it, mainly for people willing either to chill out or to hike!


A really really nice place in the mountain, if want to forget the town, it's perfect. The staff is nice but not very available, that's maybe the only bad point. The private room (2 persons) was very very good !


This wonderful hostel isn't lacking in charm, accommodations, hospitality, nor beauty. The singular drawback to this hostel is its twenty minute walk from the station, but when you're out for a leisurely vacation in the mountains, the isolation is ideal. Next door is a wonderful onsen with three baths, a sauna, and an outdoor bath. Ask the hostel owner about soba restaurants and various sites to see in the area. I highly recommend taking a side-trip out to this hostel.


super nice hosts cooked the best meals for super cheap dont know how they did it, location is a bit difficult but really its a hiking area so you should be ready to walk anyway views are amazing in the real sense of the word


Very good local house style, very clean and quiet place, dark sky. Exellenct for hiker and biker. But public transport is inconveint.


This hostel offered a pleasant environment away from the city. However, in saying so, there wasn't too much to do around the area. The staff is friendly, and it is of good value. Some things that I didn't necessarily enjoy were the cramped and hard bunkbeds in the dormitory. There is not much space. Also, there are no showers by the sleeping area, so we had to go outside and down the stairs to get there. The common area is quite nice though.


It's a little out of the way, but this place has a nice homey feel to it. Also, you can't beat the price!


Very nice staff! One day walking distance to Mt. Aso. A little lower standard than most other hostels, but it is very reasonably priced too. I would come here again!

Everything was fantastic. The staff was very friendly, the price was unbelievably fair for everything, and I liked that the individual beds were screened off for privacy. Everything and more was provided for, and 350 yen was a fair price for a delicious dinner. It's situated fairly close to two bus stops, so you can use public transportation, but the buses are few and far between. A car, as they suggest, would be great if possible, though of course, not all licenses are valid here.
