    The Yakushima Youth Hostel was awesome. It is about a 5-10 min walk from the ferry, and even closer to the bus stop and grocery store. The staff is very informative about things to do on the island and will help you if you need it. The Japanese style bath is perfect after a long day of hiking and exploring. Great hostel! The only thing I would recommend is to find/research something to do from 1:30-4 on the island. Check in time is at 4, so you can’t enter until then.But that is okay, no problem

    A great place to stay while on Yakushima. Can't think of anything to complain about. The hostel is within walking distance of the Yakushima 2 Ferry, a bus stop, a supermarket and restaurants. The back porch sits right on the water. Spacious dorm room. Nice lounge area. Very kind couple that runs the place. Be aware that check-in is only for a few hours in the evening and there's 'cleaning time' from 10am-12pm. Not a big deal. Plenty of room to leave your luggage in the entry if you arrive early.

    I loved this hostel! I arrived exhausted after spending 2 days hiking the mountains and really in need of some hot food and a warm bed. The family who run this hostel are friendly, the location couldn't have been better. I had a tea with a view on the port for breakfast! It was really lovely!

    Was very happy with my stay. Yakushima itself is a magical place and I’m glad I went through the hassle of getting there. Staying at the youth hostel walkable to the the poet was very convenient. Good restaurants and grocery stores all walkable. The hostel itself has everything you’d like - locker, kitchen/fridge, common area, helpful staff, laundry. Overall it was an excellent trip made easier because of this hostel. Would recommend.

    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!

    Solid amenities in the kitchen and a lovely porch overlooking the port. There was lots of great information to help explore the island and the staff had even more when asked. They were also SUPER helpful in retrieving a cellphone I left on a public bus!! Thanks so much!
