    The best hostel I have ever seen so far, owners are super friendly and can speak English Japanese and Korean. The kitchen are is lovely and the atmosphere in common area is just so good. They have a big yard and also a porch for you so sit outside. You can tell owners spend a lot of time on the details such as travel guides, Manga collections and guests book. The whole place is really quiet and peaceful at night, yet very close to the train station, which is so convenient for us to go anywhere.

    Everything was great! A nice warm bed and the kitchen make you feel like home. They even provided a makeup remover! I’m so impressed.

    This hostel was extremely clean and comfortable. It felt like you were staying in a nice house. We were only there for two nights but I definitely recommend staying here if you are in Aso.

    Beautiful hostel with a lot of facilities! The common spaces are so clean and very stylish. They provided a lot of free amenities which were definitely beyond our expectations! Location is as good as it gets as well. Only minor thing was that there was a somewhat more serious atmosphere in the hostel, but I think this could depend on the guests too!

    I love love the decoration and arrangement of the hostel. It is cosy and super clean. I stayed in the female dorm with a view of smoky Nakadake. The dorms have curtains instead of doors but you feel really safe because the staff have tight security and the curfew is at 10pm. You can cook at the fully equipped common kitchen and shop at a convenience store across the street. The bus and train station are also just across the street and they have a market and a tourist information center there.

    The location of the hostel is great, as it is only a few minutes to walk from the station. The staff were polite and informative, and there is a nice communal area, and a really nice kitchen downstairs. Upstairs the toilets & showers were really clean and nice. The only downsides for me were that the dorms do not have doors, but just partition curtains, so it means that sound travels well and it gets noisy. The top bunk was also a bit tricky to climb up to as there was no rail to hold onto.

    The hostel/hotel is hands down one of the most beautiful I have ever stayed in. The decor and finish is exquisite. Unfortunately however the staff were not at all welcoming which led to a negative atmosphere in the hostel. Additionally the showers last only 5 seconds before having to push the handle down again, annoying.
