渡嘉敷港から歩いて7分くらい。近くには食料品店があるので、食べ物にも困りません。部屋はドミトリータイプでバックパッカー向け。チェックイン時のオーナーの説明はとても親切、丁寧でした。利用者の8割は海外からとのこと。設備は比較的きれいで快適です(洗濯機、シャワー、キッチン、トイレ等)。阿波連ビーチやとかしくビーチへの送迎もしてくれます。スノーケルセットのレンタルもありますよ。 I can recommend this accommodation to visitors from abroad. 7 minuites on foot from the port. A grocery at a short distance. The owner was kind. You can rent snorkeling gears.

The owner is very rude. He has a constantly hungry mood. We just book 4 nights to being paid in the hostel and due to bad weather we needed to back to okinawa one day before because sometimes the ferry is cancelled and we need to take our flight back to tokyo.He aim me to pay 4 nights instead 3. The owner Morino is famous in the village for that kind of actings with tourist. There are other better options to sleep in the island.

I definitely enjoyed my time on Tokashiki and Zamami Islands a lot more than I thought I would. Kerama is a great place to base yourself in Tokashiki. It is very clean, well kept and it has amazing and the friendliest staff. I stayed there for 6 nights. While the town itself does not look exciting at first sight, it also starts growing on you with with a yakitori place, very cute breakfast/lunch cafe Sunny Coral and nearby beaches (the hostel also offers shuttle service to the beaches). I truly enjoyed my time there and it was great to know that I had clean Kerama to get back to after a day of exploring each day.

This is a brilliant hostel, which super friendly and helpful staff. Super comfortable, super clean and with plenty of facilities for use. The hostel owner also owns a marine shop near Aharen Beach, which you can use at your leisure, including showers, toilets and baggage storage. The hostel staff also run shuttle buses to various places around the island at different times during the day for free, which is also amazingly useful. Book your stay here now. You definitely won’t regret it.

If you are traveling on a budget this hostel is the perfect place to stay on the island. The owners were very friendly and helpful, they picked you up from the port and take you to the beach where you can store your luggage I'm their marine shop for the day. After your day on the beach you are able to use shower facilities for free in the marine shop and transport back to the hostel is arranged for you to check in. Unfortunately me and my boyfriend had to book separate dorms as there was no availability for us both in a mixed do, however when we arrived there was no one next to him in the Japanese style room. This was no big issue though as I brought my pillow into his dorm and stayed in there with him. The hostel was clean and comfortable.
