Situated in an excellent, lonely spot at the south-west end of the island, great for starting your hikes across the island from here. However the nice spot of the hostel means you are completely dependent on the hostels services. There is absolutely NO infratstructure around anywhere close: Supermarket, restaurants, café, basically everything is on the other side of the mountain,...

If you want to see a unique aspect of Japanese life, this hostel is a must. It is run as hostels were run in Japan years ago now it's the only one left. Wake up calls/lights out calls/no wifi but welcome/farewell ceremonies, evening entertainment by the staff who work tirelessly, but always smiling, from 5.30am til 11pm. Treks from north...

I stayed for just one night but it was quite an unforgettable experience. Starting from dramatic welcome, every event happening on site is with some kind of entertaining spirit. The climax is the "meeting" held every night after dinner at local time 7:20pm. I recommend everyone to spend at least two nights and experience the 8 hours trecking course,from north...

This is definitely one of my favorite places I've ever visited in Japan - a stay here will definitely be an unforgettable experience that you will look back on and marvel at over the years. First of all, the setting is gorgeous - after traveling through the "Momoiwa Time Tunnel" we arrived on the west coast of the island just...

We are in our '70 's and we were warned that maybe we could not keep up with everything going on at the hostel. No one is left out of the crazy fun - but the staff did provide chairs for us. It was fantastic. Wild participation in theater late into the night then up before dawn and into a...

A stay at this hostel is a unique experience. The staff are first rate - enthusiastic, friendly and attentive. Beds are comfortable and warm. Dinner was very good, breakfast less so. The location is fairly isolated, a good distance from the nearest town or village, so be sure to have the things you need before getting there. The downside -...

Wow! I still laugh thinking about this place, probably the most bizarre youth hostel in the world. Right from the welcome at the pier with the staff chanting and waving flags as the ferry arrives, the process of turning our clock back half an hour to Momoiwaso time, through the induction process at the hostel (involving plastic chickens!), the farewell...

A very basic youth hostel - but in a marvelous location and with a unique and unforgettable character. Guests are welcomed at the island quayside by the hostel staff singing and chanting and waving banners, then are transported over a hill in a truck to a most beautiful bay and the youth hostel. There are lots of lovely touches, but...
