I've done a fair bit of traveling over the past ~6 years and I can say, without a doubt, that this was the best hostel I have ever stayed at! Although quite a long walk into the hills of Yufuin, everything about this hostel is fabulous. That walk I was talking about? Gorgeous. The town of Yufu itself is so-so,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

“The private room is a good value if shared among two or three people. Nice view and private toilet.”

“our room seemed to have changed from bun beds to traditional futon but we didn't mind - so you may want to confirm your details beforehand to make sure you're placed in the right room. it was very cold when we arrived but it soon warmed up with the aircon. basic but pretty, clean and with all the necessities. as always in japan, walls are thin!”
