Yes, people complain about the street noise (and there is -- indeed -- street noise), but I did not find the noise to be overwhelming. And your first impression from the stairway leading up to the rooms......it's not a good first impression (that's where they ask you to stash your sheets as you leave, so the stairway doesn't have that...

I stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of July. Its location was great, not so far from the closest tram station and the bus stop at dolphin port. Although I got confused a bit when I first walked to the hostel since the map they provided in their website was a bit not accurate. I stayed in the... More

Staff was helpful. Let us drop off our stuff earlier so we could travel light. WiFi is available and strong enough to Skype without problem. It is well equipped with showers, washing machine, fridges and a functional kitchen. Location is close a couple minutes walk from Izurodoori tram station and from the shopping district. Also minutes away from the port,... More

Stayed in a "capsule" dorm, which is a dorm room where the beds are encased in walls on all sides but one, you crawl in through this opening and close a curtain behind yourself. There's enough room to sit up inside. It's an interesting mix between being in a dorm and not quite having your own space. It's a generally... More

This youth hostel is pretty well located in Kagoshima. It is within walking distance of the Aquarium and the ferry terminals. A lot of people here used this as a jump off point to visit various attractions around the area such as Sakurajima, Ibusuki, Chalan, and few other points of interest. I was here in March and it was still... More

Stayed here 3 nights and didn't find it particularly enjoyable. The only clear postive was the location as it was very close to an excellent sushi train, ferry, aquarium and local supermarket. The only thing that made our stay super uncomfortable was that during our time at the hostel , we were sharing facilities and a room with a large... More

We only had one night here, but wish we had more. The staff were very nice and social. A great place to try some local sake and shochu. We wanted a private room, but they were booked out (last minute booking). But the dorm was great with lots of people, but your own private capsule. Although we didn't get long... More

This is probably the best choice from hostels in Kagoshima from what I head from other travelers, the prices there are very low (1600Y for a dorm bed) in comparison with other places in Japan. It is complicated to check-in early, you have to be lucky for somebody to open you door. Staff are confused (lost reservation) and not really... More

Decent price for dorms, had a good stay and the staff is cool and helpful. The guy in the reception helped me with choosing the ferry to the islands . It's very convenient in terms of location as its close to the port to tie the ferry

Simple hostel direct at the ferry port. The staff is friendly, well informed, speak english & is helpful. Mixed dorms with simple bunks. Free Wi-Fi is available. Y2300 per day is ok for this kind of hostel.
