I loved my stay here. The hosts are very welcoming. I joined a nightly fireflies tour right after my arrival, which was nice. Only drawback: it's far from the station and centre, so make sure you do anything you need to do there before getting into a taxi. However I did walk it later on(without heavy backpack and it's certainly... More

I stayed at this youth hostel by myself for 2 nights. I ordered 2 breakfast and 2 dinner during my stay. The food was okay. I was expecting to eat locally grown or authentic Japanese food, but it was more like western food at every meal. My stomach became a little too much and ended up not able to finish... More

I stayed here in 2005 and had very fond memories of this place. I'm not sure if the owner is still the same but it was a very comfortable place to sleep in with great food and the view from the dining area is remarkable at night. I recall having the best Japanese food in yufuin, strolling through classy hello... More

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
