The place is beautiful but access to food is not easy.
Nothing available for us to eat there, even with a typhoon that would hace make us stay there foe 4 days, so de has to leave.
Cool place, quite
There are no supermarket nor ATM, you should come prepared.
Except of the kitchen everything was fine
The kitchen was gross, everywhere dead centipedes
The landlord are very special guy, he provided many books and DVD / vcr for passengers to apply
The indoor onsen is not work and the shower will close at 22:00
The frame is agreable, it is clean and its style is typically japanese.
I felt the owner might have had bad experiences with foreign travellers before as she was much nicer towards the other customers (who were all Japanese) than to me. Also, the pictures of the onsen on this website make you think that it is very near, this is not true: it would take a good half an hour to reach them on foot, or about ten minutes if you use the bikes they rent there.
The facilities were very nice and well maintained
Location (distance from the towns & trails), Difficulty with planning for English speaking guests
Didn't stay for second night
The location is beautiful and the actual building is stunning.
Our room had a distinct urine smell and we were surprised we had to pay 100 yen / hour for the AC (I get the reasons behind it, but it was definitely an annoyance). It was not a cheap stay when you factor in buses on the island and I wouldn't say the ambiance was worth it. Bike rentals were pricey. Be sure to bring some snack foods, as there is not much around.
Clean, definitely worth the price, onsen and izakaya near by. Convenient in terms of buying tickets, getting bus schedule information and planning day trips. The staff is helpful if asked for particular things.
It's a long trip from the main port and the 10pm lights out is very strict. Sometimes the staff were not at the front desk. Outside drinks are not allowed to be brought in to the hostel.
Nice located in the pampas. Beautiful landscape.
Bus to the port takes over 1 hour. Only 1 bus in the hour.
Can't shower after 10pm
Fantastic setting Clean traditional styled ryokan Friendly English speaking staff (very broken but can still get across infomation) Sells the one and tell day bus tickets Car and bicycle hire Laundry facilites
Located a long way from other facilities, however a price worth paying if you want something a little more rural and traditional
Customer service and staff friendliness!
Everything quite good
No wifi on rooms! Air conditionate not free, 1€/hour!!! And it was really hot on september.
The hostel had a nice atmosphere and the full wooden building made it a cosy stay. The facilities were all very clean and Wi-Fi, TV, cables, etc. were available. The location is far out, which is a plus for some and a minus for others. All in all it was a nice stay.
Dinner and breakfast need to be booked to much in advance. More flexibility would be better. The island itself has great potential, however infrastructure is too bad. Buses run too infrequent on the whole island. However, if you want to relax and have time for your own - Yakushima Youth Hostel is a good choice.
