Very cute spacious hostel. Great location just a few minutes walk from the ferry and from bus station and information center. The rooms were exceptionally large, a nice change from most hostels in Japan, and there was a very good atmosphere. Downside is the kitchen which is very small so only one person can cook every time which was inconvenient as most people wanted to cook. The shoe drier was an absolute life saver! Would gladly stay again :)

The hostel location is excellent, close to ferry port, supermarket, bus stop. It has all facilities you need such as kitchen, fridge, shower and japanese bath and also an enjoyable terrace. Rooms are quite big (compared with Japanese standards) and very clean. I'll will go back there next time we visit Yakushima.

The property is nice and bright and the patio was fun even though I didn't use it much. Basic kitchen. I only stayed 2 nights and would have a hard time staying longer due to the lack of comforts, when hanging out at night there isn't any cushions to sit on or against. Is just nice to have somewhere to be comfy. Was also frustrating coming back from hiking and having to wait until after 4pm for a shower.

Absolutely fantastic place! Staff was amazing: friendly and helpful, the location is awesome: harbor view where you can see the ferries arrive, and a japanese bath inside where you can hear the waves rolling ashore! The rooms are perfect, and from the place you have plenty hiking possibilities to the mountains of Yakushima. Just great.
