    Was a lovely hostel you can see the ocean from the bath. Bunks were comfortable with privacy curtains. Staff was very helpful in planning hikes and trips around Yakushima. I would stay here again.

    The place was cute and conveniently located with plenty of good food in the village. Staff helped me re-plan my backpacking trip to Mt. Miyanoura once my original plan didn't work out. (I extended my stay to three nights and just spent the second night on the mountain. I trekked from Shiratani Unsuikyō to Yodogawa trh. which left some time in the morning to rent gear and buy food before catching the bus.) The backpack was amazing, and it was fun to socialize with others at the hostel.

    Great location, only 10 minute walk from the ferry, and close to multiple bus stops that can take you anywhere on the island. Common area had a deck that overlooked the water– really nice to watch the sunrise/sunset from. Would definitely visit again!

    After one night at Yakushima Guesthouse I had to move to this hostel in order to catch my early morning ferry from Miyanoura port. The location could not be more convenient for this! The hostel itself overlooks the harbour/port and has a lovely terrace at the back where you can enjoy the views and the sea breeze. Facilities were excellent and it’s within walking distance to several shops. An ideal hostel if you’re sailing into Miyanoura port.
