    This hostel is one of the cleanest I experienced, and taken into account that it is on the jungle side of the island! The owner really goes the extra mile and helps/recommends w/advice for trips, modes of transport or whatever you need to know. Given the fact that there are no shops or restaurants around, he provides a selection of food and beverages for the same price as in the shop! If you leave the window open and the insect shield closed, you‘ll fall asleep w/sound of the river + grashoppers

    This was probably my favorite place I stayed in Japan - I extended my stay twice!! The backdrop for this hostel is incredible. You literally have to cross a waterfall to get here, and the bus stop right outside is super handy for getting to all the local attractions/hikes. Hiro-San is very welcoming, speaks amazing English, and knows so much about Yakushima (all of his recommendations were on point!). Nice mix of friendly travelers, all willing to converse in the cozy common room.

    The owner, Hiro, speaks awesome english. 1. Do not waste time on a bus pass 2. DO YOURSELF THE FAVOR AND RENT A CAR. 3. BRING PLENTY OF CASH, no lawsons, family mart, or 711 ATM on this island. The guest house is very clean. Very cozy, the perfect place to relax at the end of the day. The beds are comfortable, theres laundry, Hiro will give you the run down. Supermarket 5 minute drive down the road with a ¥200 hotspring across the street. Some parts of the island are only accessible by car.

    Spent 4 nights here on my trip across Japan, Yakushima was my favourite place that I visited. Hostel is in a beautiful location, 3 minutes walk from the nearest bus stop (the manager Hiro emails in advance with helpful information). In general I would recommend hiring a car if possible but be sure to have an international driving licence - it will make travelling around the island so much easier. If not possible, buy a bus pass (1-4 days bus pass available). Wonderful guesthouse - stay here!

    Great place! Hidden in a green spot close to a bus stop! The owner makes sure we know how to deal with buses, he's very helpful since he know all the good connections to do between buses. The only area for improvement I can think of (if one must be found): adding hooks in the showers to be able to hang clothes and towels.

    A beautiful location for a guesthouse. The owner is so wonderful. I had no cash with me and the post office atm closes at 5pm on a Sunday. He was very accommodating in allowing me to pay the following day. I really appreciated it.

    Guesthouse Yakushima was probably the cleanest guesthouse I've ever been to. The owner was so nice, whenever a guest returned he asks them what they did and recommended other things to see; he basically planned my who trip for me. If you're worried about ferries, you can make the earliest ferry from Anbo. The bus is pretty early compared to when the ferry leaves (7:00) but it was worth it for me. There are no lockers but the laundry area has a drier.

    This is a lovely hostel but PLEASE be aware that it is literally in the middle of nowhere! I sailed into Miyanoura port and the infrequent and very expensive buses meant I had to move to another hostel in order to catch my early morning ferry. It’s a slightly better location if you sail into Anbo. Aside from that, owner is very helpful, facilities are excellent and the place has a nice atmosphere. The setting is also beautiful - next to a river with wonderful mountain views. Just very remote!
