As said in previous review. Nobody really cares and the atmosphere is pretty roots. I was with my partner so we took a private room. It was OK until one of the night a group of Japanese guests came back drunk at 2am and decided to go on partying in the guesthouse until 5... Clacking doors and all the noise... More

This guesthouse is chill, all the staff is chill, but nobody really cares, it seems like a party all the time, but no work:) When you enter you have to go across 50 pairs of shoes, sometimes it is really hard to find yours. Rooms are really crowded, beware of getting a bed in the hall, you wouldn't get much... More

The hostel is very dirty, there is hair all over thr beds, sheets not clean, grime in the bathroom sink, which there was only 1 of. The only toilet and sink were both blocked, which isn't great when shared with 26 other people in the dorm. The staff were completely useless and didn't even show us to our room. The... More

I booked a private room from their website (using their format) but they separated us to sleep in the dormitory when we arrived. Although the vibe at the 1st floor was really nice but the whole female dormitory wasn't quiet enough during night, people came in and out all the time, some even checked-in in the midnight that brought more...

I was in Naha, Okinawa in January 2012 with a friend. Kerama Guest House is filled with helpful and friendly staff, and I recommend it to anyone! As we were there, they organized trips and common dinners, which was so much fun! We got to try home-cooked japanese food. And sake, of course. Next time i visit Okinawa, I will... More

The price is right, which draws many backpackers to this hostel. Me included. I stayed in the men's dorm room, which is made up of capsule-like bed spaces separated by thin, wooden walls. Sheets hang at the front for "privacy", however, you can hear every sound in the room. It's lights out at midnight, which is the earliest you can... More

Kerama has a few great staff members that are very easygoing and open to conversation in the common room. They are also very helpful in giving you directions and recommendations for places to eat and visit, and can speak English pretty well. Kerama is also in a great location for Naha. The aquarium and prettier beaches are 1-2 hours away... More

I was on vacation with some friends in Okinawa, and we were recommended here. The location is nice, only about 10 minutes walk from Miebashi station, and about 20 minutes by rail from the airport. Also, it's only about 15 minutes walk to Kokusai Dori, a main street with lots of shops, restaurants, and bars. The hostel itself is situated... More
