For the traveler on a budget, or the person interested in a long term stay , i highly recommend the Hamby Resort. Although the name includes the term "resort" make no mistake about it, theres nothing "resort like" about Hamby. It is a simple Travel Inn, with very basic rooms, and facilities.
They have both a dormitory style option as well as a standard private room option.
Location: Located in the heart of the Chatan area and a block away from the very beautiful Araha beach, the location is outstanding, and convenient. there are numerous shops, bars and restaurants all within walking distance. 5-10 Mins from Camp Foster Marine Corps base
Facilities: Basic Small lobby area with check in counter and staff office, Community Kitchen area with TV dining table, and full kitchen ( you are allowed to keep items in the refrigerator) and make meals as you wish. ****ATTENTION*** the toilets, Shower areas in this facility are community style, the rooms do not have individual private toilets. The toilets are Japanese style
Benjo toilets. keep this in mind if you are not accustomed to Asian style toilets, or if you prefer private toilet/shower facilities. There is a main bldg the Travel Inn area and there is also a separate "cottage style' section closer to the beach.
Staff: friendly and helpful, most staff speak very little english, basic Japanese communication skills would be helpful.
Rooms: The rooms are basic and small (10X6?), A twin size bed Tatami straw matress, or thing cushion style , TV , nightstand and AC unit. the rooms are small and have one window . The rooms are set up for sleeping , not entertaining.
Price: 20-30$ a night with special rates for long time stays
Internet: the Lobby area has a PC with internet access. WIFI works sometimes, but dont count on it.
They have a website for booking, and a facebookpage, Just google Hamby resort in English
