Fantastic hostel! The owner was very knowledgeable and gave us excellent advice about hiking in the area. Atmosphere was great, I felt like we were all a big group of friends travelling together. Also has coin laundry and even a shoe dryer. Highly recommended!

The location was perfect, close to Miyanoura port, the bus stop, restaurants, and a supermarket. The staff were friendly and helpful and the common room was big and welcoming. This made for a very nice atmosphere and it was easy to meet people. The veranda had a nice view also! There were also convenient laundry facilities that were easy to use. If you are desperate for food you can pay around 100-200yen for pastries or cup ramen. There were ants and huge spiders in the room... the only problem.

Thank you for staying with us and the review. we are very glad you had nice time here in Yakushima and the hostel. We are sorry about the ants and spiders we can not help much.. (we prefer not to use any insecticide) the spider is big but they are not poisonous and eat cockroaches!!!

Miki is a very nice person, you basically can get whatever information you want from him, also he is knowledgable. The price is 3600 per night approximately, but if you have yha member card, then it's less than 3000, so it's pretty acceptable. Room and facilities are super clean, beds are comfy, there are also some food and drinks you can buy from there. Location is ok, very close to ferry port, so you won't miss the ferry, around there are also plenty options of restaurants. Overall, it's worth
