The owner / manager, Ryo, is a pro, if slightly bossy. He went out of his way to encourage interaction among the guests, organizing a group game and seating people in shared language groups for breakfast. Food was not ample but very good. There is a great view over the city and everything is spotlessly clean. The best for me... More

We stayed for one night in a tatami room on futon and it was a lovely experience. rooms and shared toilets are warm (for japan in winter) and spotlessly clean. lovely warm communal area with a view of yufuin in the snow. good (small) onsen, almost scandinavian feeling. the owners gave us plenty of tips for sight seeing and discount...

We checked into the hostel in the evening and took a taxi from the station which cost just under 1000 yen for the 10 min ride. Our 2 famillies of 8 stayed in 3 rooms. It is a bit far from the city but if you are lazy to walk or take a bus, and if the timing fits, you... More

Youth hostel is misleading. The average age during my stay was 45. Being the only international, I felt very unwelcomed and my stay was more of a chore. There were activities in ha. I was not offered the option of the added breakfast or dinner and had to make the request. I was also moved from my room, which under... More

This hostel is a place I hate to say goodbye to because of the following : Rate: I'm a YHA member so it was 600¥ cheaper every night. It came up to 10000¥ for 3 nights, which is inclusive of onsen tax and one dinner =) Location:yes it it far from town high on a mountain but trust me that's... More

This lovely hostel offers a very homely atmosphere. Ryo and his wife made us feel like we were part of their family. Whilst this hostel is seemingly furthest from the walking street area of Yufuin and Yufuin Station (approx. 40 minutes walking/15 minutes by taxi), I would say it's worth traveling here. The hostel location offers you a very nice... More

I opted for dinner and breakfast which was a wise choice. The small town is so quiet after 6pm. There is no restaurant nearby unless you drive. Breakfast was big the first morning. And then the portion got smaller the next day. Probably because the owner of the youth hostel saw me packing some bread on the first day. There... More

We truly had a great stay at the coutnry road hostel! Ryo and his family (wife and two kids) were all super kind and the hostel has great rooms and atmosphere. We traveled through Japan with our little girl (18 months) and also for her the place was great. The location is good, a nice big house on the hill... More

Yufuin is a lovely small village in the mountains, ways better than ugly Beppu down at the sea. This place in particular offers a personal service, fantastic food and a nice onsen. It is simple, you have small rooms, but the owner family gives you a warm welcome and helps you also for further planings of your trip.
