Miconos Resort Minamikaze
Ranked #69 of 92 Specialty lodging in Naha
Reviewed July 3, 2010

We intended to stay here for one night before heading off to the Kerama Islands on holiday.
The hostel is located very close to Tomarin Port, and about 15 minutes' walk from International Street. The owner was very friendly and showed us the lounge and kitchen area free for all guests to use, then charged us 4000 Yen for the night. Unfortunately, this was to be our most pleasant time in Minami Kaze.

Upon heading up the stairs to our 4th floor double room we immediately noticed that the greek-style alcoved walls were grey, rather than white, with dirt lining every ledge.The carpet in the 4th floor hall was very stained, and the door had a flimsy padlock on it. The room itself looked pleasant, with lots of teak furniture. The bed sheets looked old and tired, but we decided it would be fine for 1 night.

We started to have doubts when we made the mistake of using the 5th floor shower and toilet. The floor had rotten wooden decking that crumbled as we walked on it, and although the shower had been recently refurbished the toilet next door was filthy. However we went and took a look at the 3rd floor toilets, and as they were better decided to put the dirt out of our minds.

We then went out for the evening in Naha, and that's where things went wrong! We got back to our room at about 10pm, opened the door, turned on the lights, and there was a cockroach sitting on our bedside table. It promptly ran off, along with 2 of its buddies. Being well aware that if you see 1 cockroach, you can guarantee there are lots more you can't see, we decided that spending the night wasn't such a good idea. We then had to pack up all our stuff, haul our bags to the nearest hotel, and unpack and repack all our luggage to check for bugs as we'd left our cases open.

In fairness to the owner, he handed our money right back and apologised. Maybe he's used to people running away! It's just a shame he advertises his hostel as clean.
