Booked 2 nights... stayed 1, which tells you all you need to know. The whole hostel is one large floor broken up into “rooms” by a series of walls (many without doors). Ventilation is next non-existent, which is made worse by the “smoking area” which is a bench by the lift which you have to pass every time you want to take the lift or is the one toilet. The night we stayed there were two locals talking and smoking on the bench all night. Plugs by my bed kept coming loose, which meant my fan (which I needed given the lack of ventilation) kept turning off. Seem to be a few locals living there and the place is rather dark and grey. When left in the morning I stood in sick in the lift. Only positive is the manager was friendly and it’s close to a monorail stop but I would but recommend you stay here. We didn’t stay our second night and booked an air bnb.

I selected a dorm cabin - bigger than a capsule at the normal Japanese capsule hotels, just enough space and well worth the price paid. The bed was outstanding and the location i excellent. highly recommended for cheap, comfy and very basic stay.

The only night I stayed there, having booked a "single room" that I thought would be like the one photo that they DID show, till I complained to the owner (who has presumably removed it because he doesn't want to face charges of "misrepresentation") it was, IMHO, pretty lousy. It was a half-height room so I had to crawl to get into my bed, past a post that held up the upper part, supposedly for storing your clothes -- except it was useless. Most importantly, IT WASN'T WHAT I HAD BELIEVED I HAD BOOKED AND PAID FOR -- a single room with a bed with NOTHING above, and a small desk, for a total of eight days, in fact. Except, I was so disgusted, I checked out the next day. To his credit, Grant, the American owner, did refund the rest of my money -- but he could hardly refuse. He said he was going to change my room for me, but I wasn't prepared to risk that I would be just as disappointed in other ways. So I went elsewhere (a hostel right beside the Maejima Intersection pedestrian overpass to the port) where the room was very nice, just Y3,300, and very cosy. I later also found another alternative alongside the harbour, called MY PLACE, and that looked very nice too. In short, IMO Kumoji-so hostel is probably NOT the place to stay -- although I do accept that for some people it might be "okay". But try other places first. That is, if you really have to go to Naha and Okinawa -- like you love beaches and snorkeling. Unfortunately I don't even swim, so for me I found that going to Okinawa (well, just Naha and one of the islands, Tokakishi) was really just a way of wasting time. Not bad, but nothing I could not have missed, frankly.

Thank you for your review and feedback. Senior travelers on a tight budget that are concerned with many issues are a challenge for budget accommodation. Unfortetly we were not able to meet your needs for your stay at the hostel. I'm glad to hear you found suitable accommodation.

This hostel is not bad but I wouldn't recommend it for long stays. was put into a room right at the common area and I couldn't rest at all since I heard every step and even people chewing their dinner. The walls between the rooms are extremely thin too but get used to that in Japan. I can imagine this hostel is a good spot for your first or last night in Okinawa as it's close to the monorail station, there's a shop just around the corner and the main tourist road (Kokusai dori) is just a few hundred yards away. The hostel has a bar which is very nice on a busier night so no need for long strolls if you'e tired. The staff is international and very nice. The facilities are good, it's only the noise that made my stay there not the best.

I have traveled to many places around the world over the years and nothing is more important than where you lay your head at night especially if you are in that particular town or city for more than a few nights. It sets the tone for your trip. The Kumoji So hostel was a very pleasant surprise as my ending up there was dictated more by chance than choice. It offers private rooms to dorm style accommodations but the Beauty for me, as a budget traveler was the dorm beds are private nooks rather than bunks. I am very American and I enjoy my private space. There is wifi and a dual laptop set up to meet your cyber needs. There is a communal fridge, hot water for tea and coffee, toaster oven and microwave. It is quiet and very clean. It offers shared toilets but one for him and her and separate nice showers as well. It has a pleasant feel with excellent overseeing by the owner whom is present daily and takes a very person interest in his hostel and the quality of your stay. With all this said it is affordable and well located in downtown Naha. I would recommend Kumoji So to anyone. I am still staying there. It has become my home base in Okinawa and this Island is an amazing place. Enjoy! Captain Mike Wallace
