Property Information:

Our Yakushima Youth Hostel overlooks the ocean and is surrounded by a vast, primeval forest. All buildings are made from Japanese cedar trees. The hostel features Japanese-style rooms and beautiful cypress common bath tubs, and many other useful amenities suitable for long stays.

Free Internet access by cable and wireless LAN
Free iPad and desk PC
Regarding mobile phone, both NTT Docomo and AU have coverage around Yakushima YH.

Near our hostel are three 'onsen' (hot springs). One of them is the famous Hirauchi Kaichu Onsen, which appears during low tide, when the receding waters leave a natural pool. After a long, sweaty mountain trek, our visitors can refresh themselves in the hot spring while chatting with local people.

    Beautiful hostel but unfortunately the staff were pretty much non-existent. We checked in quite late, around 7:30 p.m. I was surprised to be asked for my foreign resident card, which they photocopied. It felt a bit intrusive. I went back to reception twice to ask for a towel, but noone was there either time, despite it still being within reception opening times. The kitchen too shut more than 30 minutes early. Overall it was clean and fine for one night. But, the walls and futons are thin.
